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

Very freindly and helpful staff, very attentive and courteous. We had to vacate our house for a week and the townhouse was pretty much perfect for our needs.All five of us were well looked after. Lynne, the motel manager was excellent to deal with and we were made to feel very welcome.

Stayed overnight before catching an early morning plane. Staff and welcome very friendly, room clean and even some outside space to sit in the sun. Noise from nearby road a bit intrusive but died down in the early evening and beds a bit on the soft side. Nearby Caltex gas station definitely limited as far as food choice is concerned... More

Great airport hotel. The room was very clean and reasonable. A shuttle service to the airport was a great help. The management could not be more accomodating. Great sleep before travelling home to the states

.Stayed overnight to catch an early plane and bus. room was clean, free wifi worked, there were some sky tv sports and movie channels, and the staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Shuttle service to airport is not 24 hours so we had to pay $20 to get to airport before 9 AM, neighborhood is not one to explore:15-20... More

Friendly service, all our questions answered as to closest restaurant, 24/7 close by etc, clean room waiting for us and so close to the airport. Very easy to find when you are just a little bit jet lagged.

Unit 8 was our room. Shower terrible, toilet buttons broken, peeling paint above shower. Tongs and can opener broken more serving utensils needed. Units above have spa baths that people used at 2am in morning keeping us awake. People coming and going noisy early hours of morning probably due to travel, loud road noise. Free Laundry, wireless Internet and friendly... More
