We only booked in for one night as we had an early morning flight but highly recommend the motel. Excellent service, great value for money very well located. Rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Free wifi and airport transfers 24 hrs per day.

Very happy to stay here when traveling as it is so close to the airport and the shuttle bus service is fantastic. The staff are nice and the rooms clean and have everything you need. The wifi works very well too. There is plenty of parking and the bus to the city goes nearby.

I went and changed the payment to debit card [or you can pay cash]. I did not see this when I booked online nor was I told when... More

Stayed in Economy 2 Bedroom Unit - The décor and carpets a little tired looking. Was not made aware of a 2% credit card surcharge until viewing my credit card statement. This was not stated in T&C's at time of booking or upon checking in or out.

Super close to airport and campervan hire (within kilometres of eachother). They arranged shuttles for us (we arrived into Christchurch at 1am and the shuttle was ready to go!). Rooms were clean and staff were really helpful. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.
