We spent our arrival night at this hotel before picking up a camper van. I had booked a suite so as to have a room for us and our daughter, and ended up with a duplex suite that could have slept 6+, plus the room had a small kitchen and a dining and sitting area. We ate in the hotels... More

This hotel is perfect for a visit to Christchurch. It is conveniently located and the rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. All staff are very pleasant and made our stay most enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was spacious well equipped. On site restaurant food was good. Transfers to and from airport were quick and efficient and an automated wake up call ensured an early morning pick up wasn't missed. There was quite a lot of road noise but not enough to stop you sleeping.

Other accommodation establishments could take a 'leaf out of' the Airport Gateway Motor Lodges book. Very good reception staff and the shuttle driver is exceptional. He even had a sense of humour at half past midnight when collecting us from the airport. Rooms are lovely and well worth a late check out fee if you have the extra time to... More

Very enjoyable overnight stay before flying overseas the next morning. No trouble getting the free shuttle. Huge room with everything you need. Furniture a little dated but all very functional. Easy check in and check out. Good price for the size of the room. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend and will stay again if needing accommodation near the airport

This is a great stay the night before flying out of Christchurch. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the restaurant on site has exception fare, the shuttle will get you to departures in five minutes.

Enormous room, nice and clean, good restaurant for dinner but breakfast ( included in rate) not too impressive, major dislike is the plastic content of room, plastic taps, plastic walls, plastic fittings. Basically quite reasonable but needs an upgrade and some cash spent on it. Pick up and delivery too and from airport very good, staff very friendly. Price is... More

Arriving around midnight (Easter Sunday) the delay in the free shuttle arriving to collect us at the airport was annoying. As instructed, we rung the desk on arrival to be told the shuttle is 10mins away. 30mins late it arrived. Apart from that, the room was ready clean and totally fit for purpose.

Was a last minute booking but offers far more than our expectations. The room is beautiful and every things are pretty new. So good to stay with them. Only little problem is that was a bit noise on the street side.
