We had ordered a regular 2-bedroom apartment but were upgraded upon arrival to a 'premium' 2-bedroom. It was very nicely furnished, quite spacious and comfortable. Very good kitchenette. Large TV in the living room, I think 50". Free Shuttle service was excellent on both ends: We returned our rental car in the evening after check-in at the hotel, then called... More

it was an overnight stay to go to airport very early morning. Our suite on main floor was very modern, spotless and well decorated. Very pleasant, peaceful colors. room service was excellent and our driver was in a very good mood despite it was 5:30am. All in all we would stay there again.

Title sums it up. Picked up and dropped off from the airport in a tidy van. We were dropped of at our that was all ready for us despite the 10pm arrival and quickly shown key Astor aspects of the room. Great breakfast, eggs Bennie with Salmon from the onsite restaurant

Overall we were very happy with our overnight stay here in transit to the airport. The room we booked was modern and well equipped. The bed was soft and very comfortable. Having the car parked right in front of the door made it easy for luggage etc. The aircon is effective and provided good temperature control from the fairly warm... More

We've stayed here previously because of the convenient location close to the airport and the shuttle service that operates all hours. This time there was a mix up with our booking via booking.com - 1 night booked by motel rather than 2 as per booking.com - but the staff were pleasant about it and worked it out.

Often fly out of Christchurch, always stay here, only 5 mins from airport. Shuttle service is excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant provided good food. We have always been satisfied with the Refurbished studios, clean & roomy.

Room smelled of strong air freshener. Old furnishings. Hard to latch door when leaving the room. Very old shower curtain. Poor service in the restaurant. Restaurant prices higher than other during my stay in New Zealand.

Staff and room was great. We had one dinner here as well and we really enjoyed the food. On the downside I would say there was some noise from the street but I had no trouble sleeping, it depends on what you are used to. I think it's a little more expensive than other stays in the same range otherwise... More

The place is run down and not worth the >$200 per night. I had room 806 which has urine smell permeating from the toilet. It's gross. But the place beats on having the loveliest and most efficient staff I have ever met - friendly, helpful and kind. As well as a great location - just 2 min from the airport... More

I arrived around midnight and it's often a hassle waiting for a shuttle, but this was a quick seamless affair, done with a smile what's more. All very well organised, from keys being handy to organising a shuttle for the am. Have stayed at many motels, hotels and I enjoyed my brief stay here. Will use airport Gateway again for... More
