This was a fantastic motel, close to the airport. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the room was modern and clean. Would definitely recommend to anyone, particularly if you need to stay near Christchurch airport.

Our stay was only one night - wish it had been longer (or we had been able to find similar accommodation along the way!). Being a business traveler, internet access was of primary concern. This was only the second place in NZ that offered unlimited internet access - all other places that we stayed in offered anywhere from 50 -200... More

This is an excellent motel, with very friendly staff and clean rooms. Strongly recommended when you need a place to stay near Christchurch Airport. We really appreciated after long flight that we arrived in a room that was nice and warm with free wifi.

We stayed here before a flight out of Christchurch. The rooms were small and basic but very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, as was their shuttle service. The wifi was free and uncapped unlike at many other hotels we stayed during our trip. We would stay here again if we needed an overnight before a flight.

Friendly, helpful service and clean. Very handy for airport and easy to find. However, not well insulated for noise or heat and close to main road so traffic noise is constant. Hot water ran out a couple of times too despite little use.

The airways motel was perfect for our family of six as we were able to book the two bedroom apartment. It was clean and had all that we needed in the room, the free airport transfer was an added bonus. The staff were lovely and the beds comfortable.

I stayed here on two separate occasions and was impressed both times. Very clean / comfortable rooms. The staff are super friendly and more than happy to help out with guests needs. The motel offers a free shuttle bus and also a great range of discounted services that are very handy for the traveler. I would highly recommend this motel... More

Great location with easy access from the side street. Very warm and comfortable unit with great Wi-Fi. Very good off street parking. Friendly staff and well serviced rooms. Part of our business trip involved a meal out and when we got back some lovely angel had drawn our drapes, turned on the lights and the heater. Very much appreciated on... More
