The reviews we read overrated the quality and comfort of the room. There was a distinct musty smell in the room that did not dissipate, it was very loud due to traffic so we couldn't keep the windows open and there were no fans to circulate the air so it was very warm. Also, the bed was very uncomfortable. We... More

Perfect location, good family unit, great price and free shuttle service. Highly recommended. The room was clean and tidy with good cooking facilities. The only thing that would make it a bit more comfortable would be to have air conditioning units installed as the weather was superb.

we are very happy to stay at this motel cause of hospitality of staff. Although we are Japanese tourist and not good at English, staff arrange the time of our pick up and drop off at the Airport as she can. We really appreciate staff's kindness. Thank you very much!

We arrived very late at night and got the key from the key safe as arranged. The motel is close to the airport and easy to find in a car. The room was very clean and comfortable. The kids had a twin room adjoining our room - so it was more like a small apartment. Met the owners in the... More

We were so close to the airport which was what we needed and surprisingly it was so quiet despite being so close to the airport. We also made a friend.....Cat lovers take note do check the little garden by the reception for their resident cat who was beautiful, not to mention pretty damn cool. The last night we were there...

I stayed at this motel for 3 days recently while awaiting my flight to the UK. I think what made this motel special for me was how the staff (service and office) made me feel comfortable and 'at home'. Very good personal service by the room service staff (thank you Theresa (sp)), I would definitely stay here again. As the... More

We visited New Zealand for 10 days. My husband & I found Airways motel to be the best value for the money we paid. The owner is a warm courteous and welcoming lady. The service was superb. If we visit again we will definitely stay in this location. Close to airport, bus service is just at the door steps, so... More

I stayed at Airways while in Christchurch for a guided mountain run over goat pass. It was the perfect location for this and for visiting the Riccarton markets on Sunday. The service was great with Lynda providing helpful local advice and a shuttle service between the motel and airport.

I really enjoyed my stay here, as it was central to where I needed to go. The staff were very pleasent, engaging & helpful. There may not be a restuarant in the motel, but the information that is provided in the rooms were very helpful on where & what types of food outlets there was around. Really enjoyed my stay...
