We enjoyed our stay with our two children at this motel, we arrived to find a well appointed room and very friendly and helpful staff. This would be a great place to stay if needing to be close to the airport.

I was given very detailed instructions at the time of booking as to how to locate my bedroom key on a post mid-night check in. The room was very clean and tidy with a mini kitchen and a microwave. Except for the small size of the room, I'm totally satisfied with my stay at this motel.

I had two nights at the Airways, on arrival at Christchurch late at night and ten days later post a tour of the south island. Both experiences were very positive, my room was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Reception staff were welcoming and efficient, I appreciated the help in organising a cab to the airport at 5.30 am. My only... More

Great place to stay if you are arriving late. Close to the airport and car hire place. If your arriving between 8am and 8pm the hotel has a free shuttle which will pick you up or take you too the airport. If not there is a bus from the airport which costs $15 for two people.

After a very long flight from the US we were so happy to have a quiet clean room near the airport. The woman who ran the place jump started our rented vehicle the next day and helped in making sure we got our luggage when it didn't arrive. Would highly recommend this motel.

The hotel is close enough to the airport if you need take a flight early in the morning. It's a shame they only operate the free shuttle from 8am to 8pm but understandable and they will book a taxi for you. The room was big with a fridge a microwave and all what you need. They also have free laundry... More

The location and motel style is suited for an overnight stop in transit via Christchurch airport - and that's really why they are there. The airport pick-up service was free and friendly - it just required a call to say you were ready to be collected. It has limited hours so my early morning return to the airport required a... More

Traffic noise was so loud it was impossible to sleep. Breakfast was supposed to be provided but no information given that this was to be booked in advance. Free transfer to airport provided but once again no information given that that should be booked in advance. When Manger questioned about the above she said information had been emailed and was...

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us – as you can see from other reviews, we believe we are a well priced motel for location and services provided. As we are conveniently located close to the airport, we are unable to completely escape airport and traffic noise completely – this is to be expected, and... More

My second visit at Airways and it was as good as the first. I called to advise we wouldn't arrive till approx 8:00pm and that we had an early flight to catch - to early for the motel's shuttle service, but Lyn was extremely helpful and booked a First Direct taxi to pick us up. Cost was far cheaper than... More

Good clean room with all I needed for an overnight stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful. I would return again. Free wifi was great to get business done at the end of the day. Good service all round.
