Stayed here in 2 bedroom (older) unit on a short trip from Wanaka to Chch with 2 children & Hubby. Hubby walked from airport to meet us there. Close to airport, close enough & direct to city, quiet, extremely helpful & quick check in & out. Rooms very comfortable & spacious, kitchen & utensils great. Clean. Recommend. 4 stars only... More

We stayed here in the lovely boutique apartments because we were heading to Brisbane early in the morning ( had to leave Airport Gateway at 6am) and we wanted to leave our car here as we will be returning at nearly midnight in ten days time. Providing you stay at both ends of your trip this is a free service.... More

I have stayed here twice recently for work and the new units - executive or boutique - are fabulous, they are a decent size, very comfortable bed, great shower and a good size bathroom with lots of bench space. Kitchenette is adequate and has everything you need. Large size tv, plenty of space to work from. I did not eat... More

Airport logistics can be so daunting. A remarkable solution is the superb accommodation & service offered by Airport Gateway. We stayed here at both ends of our o/seas travel. Cheerful & efficient Graeme greeted us at the airport & delivered us to our room in the cold early hours which was pre-heated with lights on. Such a welcome retreat at... More

We have used these people a few times now. On our recent trip we used them to store our car for a month.We were dropped at & picked up from the airport & really appreciated this service. Our room was very spacious, modern & clean & tidy.

Very impressed with the clean, modern rooms and the airport shuttle. Also stayed at the Sudima on the same trip which is right next to the airport, but will definitely stay at the Airport Gateway in future.

We honestly didn't expect the rooms to be so comfortable. The heating worked perfectly so much so we had to turn the electric blankets off, the beds were incredibly soft and cozy and the amenities great! Nice big shower and well stocked kitchen (utensils).

Stayed for one night in refurbished room. Modern clean and good night sleep. Heat pump to keep you warm in the colder months. Onsite restaurant is basic but enough options for dinner and breakfast. Would stay again for business or own personal travel.
