Stayed overnight after arriving in Christchurch around midnight. Free airport shuttle was great - no waiting. Check in was easy and quick. We were leaving early in the morning and staff organised a taxi for us. Our room was clean, had a large comfortable bedroom as well as a sitting room with a single bed and a kitchenette. We slept...

I think somewhere between average and very good, depending on your concerns. Mine was that it would be some sort of over-priced dive, given the nature of some reviews. However, I do think a lot of people are of the opinion the world should bow down before them and scatter rose petals upon their arrival, and tremble in their presence... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit before flying back to Aus with our one year old. Nice quiet rooms at the back although you get woken with people arriving on the late night flights, but to be expected. Good sized lounge and kitchen, main bedroom and second room. We had requested a cot but had to ask again for... More

The place is classic 1950/60's motel. Either retro or old fashioned, depending on your point of view. The staff are excellent and the pick-up was good, even at 1AM. Rooms large with lounge and kitchenette. There is no restaurant and the pre-ordered breakfast did not sound appealing, however there is a great cafe 400 yds away.

Stayed here one night from late flight. Good pickup service at 1:30am in the morning. Very close to airport. Spacious and clean unit. My wife accidental left her jacket in the trolley at the airport, and staff was so nice to drive us back to get it at 2am. Will definitely stay again.

Would never stay again. Way overpriced, the shuttle driver that picked me up was questionable in his driving skills and spoke not a word until he told me how much to pay for my room. Shower wasn't the greatest, have seen Mir technically advanced showers in hostels. Morning staff was not very helpful either. Should have stayed at the airport... More

The two bedroom apartment is huge with fantastic facilities such as a full kitchen, great comfortable beds and a spa bath. The grounds are lovely with a children's play area. However we were in room one which is right near the car park and people arrive all night and their headlights shine right through the bedroom windows. They need to... More

location was close to the airport, however a delayed flight meant we missed out free shuttle, which overall then having to pay for the airport shuttle meant the overall price wasn't great, but this was not the Lodge's fault & they were happy for us to check out a little later due to our late arrival. An older place, however... More

We stayed here on arrival In Christchurch and our room was clean and comfortable but a little dated. On returning after 3 weeks, we had booked the smallest room in the complex, still clean and with a kitchenette but it would have suited a single person much better than a couple as it was quite confined but okay for 1...

Place is at average may be. Only reason for existing is proximity to airport. There is nothing else, except residential area (which is ok for a "last walk" in NZ before heading off. Two and a half restaurants at 10-15min walk, that's it. WIfi works only "half", ok for PC but were not able to connect iPads and Apple machine.... More
