The Airport Gateway Motor Lodge has a range of rooms. I have stayed in the older blocks in the past which are large and comfortable but this time stayed in one of the suites in the new block. I was impressed with the quality and style of the fit out. They are beautifully appointed with a large comfortable bed, armchairs... More

Good service from reception to dining then next morning with transport to the airport. Had an older room which was huge, too big for an over night/pre flight stay, but it was comfortable, warm and welcoming.

Arriving at midnight we were upgraded to a suite that was beautifully decorated and furnished. Reception staff were very helpful and the motel shuttle took us back to the airport next morning to pick up our hire car. Would definitely stay again.

Looked for a good value place to stay for a family of 4 near Christchurch airport after dropping off our rental motor home and before an early flight to Sydney. This place turned out to be ideal. A nice early check-in of 2.00pm allowed me to book in at 2.30, drop off the luggage and the family, give the van... More

Hotel was comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fortunately smaller New Zealand hotels do not have round the clock services. We arrived late and they had a sort of room service, when no one else was open this late. They had a pizza available that satisfied our hunger, and we were happy to get it. At least they... More

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.
