Stayed just one night, as I had a flight delay. Very friendly front office staff, but parking was horrendous. Had to park across the road in a timed area as all the car spaces were full (including people using disabled and median strips to park). The some of the rooms are 'premium', the rest are a bit tired. However, even... More

Stayed one night just a few days ago in a 2 bed unit. Very spacious and very well equipped.We arrived sometime after 9pm when reception door was locked. Slightly befuddled I couldn't see how to get in but eventually picked up door phone and made contact. Maybe a big notice on door or phone would help idiots like me! Check... More

We booked this hotel because of location. Just 5 mins to the airport and there have a free shutter bus to drop you. Not far from the city. Room was clean and big, lot of space for our stuffs, bed so comfortable and warm. Staffs were very nice and helpful. Free WIFI. Recommended

We stayed in room 627. The lights were very difficult to find when we arrived at 7.30pm. No heating had been turned on prior to our expected arrival. This is a luxury room for 3. No battery in alarm clock so couldn't set for early morning flight. Dust on fittings in bathroom. I was charged for a packet of Pringles... More

Loved staying here will be staying again on our way back from our holiday. Lovely furnishings. As we manage motels ourselves we will be taking some good ideas back with us. We will highly recommend to our guest on their way through.

The Airport Lodge is super near to Christchurch Intl Airport (10 mins!), which made it a great place for us to crash for the night before heading off on our road trip, as well as for the night before our super-early flight the next day. The staff were supremely professional and prompt - we arrived in Christchurch at 1am and... More

Check in on Sunday 13 July, very professional and friendly. Unit beautifully appointed, great bed. Enjoyed Flight Lounge Restaurant for tea, open at 5pm, great to have early meal with 4am start to airport. Free shuttle to airport was on time, no hassles. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We arrived on the late flight from Sydney. Easy check in even though it was 1am. Rooms very clean and tidy. Breakfast really expensive and basic. Girl working in the restaurant was suitably embarrassed when I asked the price of breakkie. Brewed coffee, white toast, wee bix and rice bubbles. $22. Ouch. A good stopover motel. Even had chocolates on... More
