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

We chose this motel because of its location and free airport transfer. Other than that, nothing much to shout out on the motel. As we came in large group, the motel is kind enough to pick us up with an additional car on top of the usual van. The rooms were ok. But the reception was not that friendly. As... More

The room smelled as soon as we got in there, the kitchen wasn't cleaned and the glasses had dirt on them. The hotel is dated and needs a revamp! Wifi was slow and I couldn't access my emails and viber

Stayed in a 2-bedroom unit c/w kitchenette. Comfortable enough for 6 pax. Beds were comfy except the sofa bed which spring had somewhat sunk in. Unit was clean. Service from the front desk was good. Provided free shuttle to airport (5 mins). Convenience store and restaurants available <10 mins walk. Recommended.

I didnt like the strong smell of urine in the unit. We thought it will go during the day, leaving the windows open, but during the night, the smell was overpowering. This morning i asked to be move to another unit.( my room has been booked for 2 weeks due to repairs to my house), nothing was done. I asked... More
