We were catching a plane next morning and needed a good quality rest and sleep beforehand. This boutique suite provided it. First class in its appearance and cleanliness, the unit was well designed and furnished. The small kitchen was excellently placed behind opaque glass doors. The bed was excellent and the room able to be heated quickly to the temperature... More

great place to stay - clean and comfortable, good location, staff were helpful. shuttle service excellent at 12.30 in the morning. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable except for the outside light shining in, would have liked to have been able to turn it off and have a dark room. I would recommend this place... More

Arrived about 11.30pm to find the front door locked even though it said 24 hour checkin. Had to ring up to be let in, there were staff inside. Clean, warm and comfortable rooms with free wifi. Very handy place to stay overnight and easy to find from the airport.

We found the Gateway excellent for our purposes of a convenient airport stay. Booking was easy online and we got a good price, not that easy in Christchurch these days! We were picked up promptly at the airport and the driver was helpful and friendly. Check in was easy, and although our room was right on the road it must... More

The room was new, clean and comfortable. Great to have a little kitchen although we weren't there long enough to make full use. Underfloor heating to the bathroom a luxury. Airport shuttle was very convenient, especially since we arrived from our flight at 1am. Was waiting at our door ready to take us back to the airport early the next... More

Room was average (Rm 811). Beds comfortable. Bathroom in need of serious upgrade - very dated. Mouldy shower cubical and soap dish falling off wall. Not worth the price for the room. However handy to airport.

Thanks for having heaters on upon arrival. Our unit was not modern like your photos... But clean and comfortable. Electric blankets. And good kitchen provisions. Pickup from airport ok, but we almost had to wait for a second trip ... Had 6 little kids that needed to sit on laps in order to make it on the shuttle.

I chose this lhotel purely based on location. We had a very early flight in the morning so I wanted to be close. The room was clean and comfortable. We wanted a 4:00 Am shuttle to the airport and at 3:55 the shuttle pulled up outside of our door and headed right out. Couldn't have worked out better. There aren't... More
