this must be on par with one of the worst motels I have stayed in, don't get persuaded by the picture on the website the standard rooms are 1970's comebacks which are unclean and smelly and could do with ripping out and starting again. This is a motel who wants to be something but will never get there!!!! Go and... More

Stayed overnight at Airport Gateway after a long flight from Darwin via Sydney. Originally chose this motel due to its close proximity to airport. So glad that we did as the accommodation was spacious, extremely clean and had everything you need to ensure a comfortable nights rest. As we were very tired from our flights we chose to eat in...

Stayed for one night before catching an early morning international flight. Whilst the room was very well appointed with a large screen tv, JBL speakers, Denon tuner and a kitchenette it was lacking quite a few things. No milk or whitener for coffee. There was no option of a continental breakfast for early morning flights as we had to be... More

I overnight here when transiting further north for work. The staff are amazing and they all clearly love what they do. From reception, shuttle driver and room service staff all are happy and genuinely interested in how their guests are. The service is consistently great and that is what makes this place good. The rooms are either new or recently... More

The best accommodation I have experienced in my travels in New Zealand since arriving in February. The accommodation is of an excellant standard with large rooms - very clean and everything in good order. The service is very friendly and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is less than 5 minutes from the airport with a free shuttle,... More

We stayed here after landing at 1am & tgen the night before an early flight. There is a free courtesy bus on offer but we had a hire car & drove there with no problems finding the place. It is literally 2 minutes away. Staff were super nice & helpful. Beds were comfortable. Great for exhausted travellers & for a... More

Booked this motel over the phone, reception staff were very professional on the phone. Arrive at Christchurch Airport and went to where the phone to call the Motel was. Reception staff advised where to wait for the van, we only had to wait around 5 minutes which was good as it was extremely cold. Arriving at the motel and was... More
