Wonderful people and fantastic service. Rung motel not long after arriving at airport and was picked up 5 min later by a lovely cheerful lady. Was freezing here 2 degrees compared to the 19 - 22 degrees on Surfers! But room was nice and warm, heater and electric blankets had been turned on for us which was really thoughtful. Had... More

clean comfortable roooms. Everything you need either before or after a flight. Inexpensive, and when we stayed there, they looked after our car for free for five weeks. We saved the cost of the motel, otherwise we would have had to pay for parking. They even picked us up from the airport. We will stay there next time we go... More

We stayed for a night for a stop over before we head off for our next journey as we arrived late. It's very near to the Airport and they provide a free shuttle from the airport to the Motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A couple with their kid. We had a two bedroom apartment.It was a very... More

We only stayed one night here but found our room to be generous in size and very comfy. Three of us stayed in a one bedroom/studio type unit. Bathroom was large, warm, clean and plenty of hot water. Plenty of parking.

Close to the airport with a free shuttle for arrivals/departures. We had a 2 bedroom apartment that suited us for one night. There was a strange smell in the room but it seemed to dissipate when we opened every window. Having said that, the room was incredibly clean. Fixtures and fittings were all dated but so clean and shiny it... More

Weren't quite sure what to expect after reading some previous reviews, but found our Studio unit to be very comfortable, clean and nicely refurbished. Receptionist was welcoming and friendly. As it was our first night in Christchurch we ordered a meal from a nearby Thai restaurant, so didn't need to use the cooking facilities. We also had the motel's continental... More

The Airport Lodge is overall a little tired, but offers still the sufficient facilities for overnight sleep. Thr rooms are spacious (4 -person) but the interiors arever basic and worn out. Breakfast for 12 dollars is slim, but if you arrive vary late... The airport proximity and shuttle are definite pluses.

The Airport lodge is 5mins from the Christchurch international airport. Shopping centres, eateries and service stations are all within a short drive. The studio room was clean with a king sized comfortable bed, free wifi, foxtel and a small kitchenette with a microwave. Parking onsite is free.

Their room smelled very bad, we recognize it as soon as we got there, but we arrived in mid-night, there is no time to change hotel. All of us didn't sleep well during the night because of the smoke smell. We did ask for a non-smoker room when booking, and their room has a 'no smoking' sign ...

If you are arriving late or leaving early, this place is a very good place to stay nearby the airport. Their free shuttle to/from the terminal is very convenient. The property is well set out, clean and tidy and the rooms are quite comfortable, considering it is motel style accommodation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This is quite... More
