This motel is convenient, especially when arriving late at the airport - the shuttle bus will pick up until 2.00 a.m. The rooms are dated, but if arriving late and leaving the next morning - who cares! The gentleman in the office (presume the manager or owner) drove us back to the airport office of Britz the next morning, even... More

We had one night here before getting to the airport for an early morning flight. Everything was functional, but for the price ($136) I would have expected a little more. It was clean enough and the bed was fine. One major downside is the lack of eating outlets close by. There are no shops within reasonable walking distance. Would stay... More

We arrived at this motel late in the afternoon and only had an hour before we needed to be at a function we were going to, hence the reason we didn't notice first off the bad things of this motel. It is easier if I list each room separately. Kitchen: When I took two coffee mugs from the cupboard one... More

Utilitarian budget hotel right next to the Christchurch airport. The highlight of this hotel is the owner, Wayne, who will go out of his way to meet your needs. He is friendly and very accommodating. Basic rooms but they are the perfect for a simple stay close to the airport.

We had a positive experience at the motel. Despite our flight delay, the shuttle van came promptly close to 2 am to pick us up. They also provided breakfast at affordable price, delivered to your room. When we had trouble getting our rental vehicle in the morning, the owner let us check out at 12:30pm without charging us any extra... More

We wee obliged to pick a motel in the vicinity of Christchurch airport due to very early and very late flights. Judging by the price of airport motels I imagine many people have the same requirement! Not at all cheap for what it is ($140 a night) this motel runs a shuttle to and from the airport for free, which... More

This hotel could definitely do with a refurb. It is very dated, couch is uncomfortable, the fridge froze everything. It was cold in there but the heat pump helped. I spent a week here as I had business near the airport but the location is only good if you need to stay near the airport otherwise find somewhere in town... More

PROS ... Good reliable shuttle to airport Food delivery available to your room from local restaurants if you don't have a car Big room CONS Dirty, tatty furniture, old uncomfortable beds, poorly equipped room - everything very basic and generally poorly maintained. Overall very far below average but price does not reflect this.

This motel is the most dated I have been in, no toilet door, sticky floor, glad we were only there for a brief time. The upside was that it was very quiet, for an airport location. Photos on website looked much better than in reality.

We have stayed here numerous times as stopover to and back from overseas and the location to the airport is the key. They offer free parking service while we are away which is a good selling point. Our room was very comfortable and the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Our children always enjoy the playground at the... More
