Close to the airport and was quiet. Problems with electrics, dead insect squashed on wall in bathroom, certainly not what we paid for. After a long flight excepted better. Heating worked well. Service was slow.

This accommodation is very basic and the rooms show clear signs of lack of renovation. It is an expensive place and benefits from the clear shortage of decent accommodation on Christchurch.The only good thing is that free Internet works.

The culmination of two weeks by two seniors in a campervan! The Airport shuttle picked us up from the campervan depot mid afternoon and took us to the airport at 3.30am the next morning. It was an excellent service. The room was modern, spacious and spotless. The shower magnificent. The dinner was perfect and all of the staff gracious, thoughtful... More

I stayed for just a night, arriving on a late flight from Australia. The courtesy shuttle arrived and left within minutes ( very important after midnight). Service was great - eg carrying my bag up the flight of stairs, offering a courtesy later checkout and driving me to collect my motorhome the next morning. The room was recently renovated, stylish,... More

Booked here for the proximity to the airport. It was definitely good value. Plenty of room, warm and staff were very obliging. We had a problem with how to work the electric blankets. the staff member didn't know either but was going to find out the next morning and did offer hotties. All in all a very enjoyable stay. I...

My wife & I (a couple of well travelled seniors) stayed overnight at the start of October. A great choice - after perusing Trip Advisor. Spotlessly clean & warm. Excellent service including airport pickup the previous day & then free shuttle back to the airport at 4.30am. Would absolutely stay again & thoroughly recommend. Has to rate 5.

This was our second stay here - it is conveniently close to the airport & offers basic comfort for an overnight stay before or after flights. Upon arrival at the airport, after baggage claim, we phoned them & a courtesy bus arrived in a short time. The motel is only a very short drive from the airport. The 2 bedroom... More

We arrived on the late flight from Oz, picked up within 5 minutes, room was beautiful and warm, and very tidy and modern. Our room was away from road, very quiet. It was upstairs and have to carry up bags but only a flight of steps so no biggie. We had brekky in the morning, lovely staff, very nice breakfast... More

We arrived after 6 PM with reservations made through Expedia. I gave the male clerk my last name and he said there was no reservation under my name. I told him it was through Expedia and gave him a confirmation number. The female clerk interposed that I might be confused about the name of the motel. The first clerk asked... More
