Great place to stay. Really appreciated the nice warm room as we didn't get to our room until about 1am from our flight. Highly recommend to all. Would defiantly be staying again once I sort out my next holiday. Easy to find and good instructions for getting the key to your room when you have a late check in.

Great place. Nice townhouse and plenty of room for the family. Some of the appliances are a little tired but overall very nice. When things went wrong the staff helped immediately and replaced the heater for us

Airways motel is clean, warm and functional. It is well situated for the airport. There is a "gem" of a hostess named Lyn. She couldn't be more helpful or friendlier. Nice touches like having the room warm on arrival, voluntarily offering advice and recommendations for meals and services etc

Close to the Airport, clean well equipped Motel. Very friendly and helpful owner, handy to amenities, a very enjoyable stay. Services included a wet area shower, unlimited WiFi. Good breakfast menu. Beds were comfortable and warm, great for an overnight stay prior to an early morning departure.

We stayed prior to flying to Sydney for a week. The reception was excellent and the service was first class. The bed was comfy and the rooms nice. We were upgraded to a double room and even though we were not staying on our return due to our late arrival we were able to leave our car for minimal charge.... More

Excellent motel with such friendly staff. They went out of there way to look after us and were very helpful with accommodating a young child. Offering toys and an room upgrade to accommodate an active toddler. When ever visiting Christchurch we will be staying at this motel

We arrived in the middle of the night, so we had to take a taxi to the hotel. Once we arrived we had to open a key box with a code that was sent to us via email Unfortunately, our key wasn't in there. So we had to use the emergency number. The receptionist came down within 5 minutes and... More

A very comfortable Motel and nice and handy to the Airport when we arrived in Christchurch and also when flying out of NZ. The Motel was nicely appointed and Lyn made us feel very welcome during our stays.

The motel was great as a stopover / one nighter. We had 2 different rooms, one for when we arrived and one for when we left a couple of days later. Both rooms were quite cramped, that is, not much leg room to walk around. The duvet cover on the Queen bed in room 2 appeared clean but had a... More

Airways8, Manager at Airways Motel, responded to this review

Thankyou for your review. We have since worked out which unit you had stayed in, and have replaced the duvet cover - it is a lot easier if guests come and talk to the manager about their concerns so these can be rectified quicker. We are classed as an Airport Motel - the most affordable way for you to get... More
