“Clean and very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This Motel is very clean and very friendly.
Our room was quite big with a little kitchen and a big shower.
Close to the airport and pick up for the campervan. They even bring you to the airport or our campervan hire station.
We took the bus into town wich stops just accross the street.

Room Tip: Take a downstairs room if you have heavy lugage.

Travelled with hubby, 2 kids and mom. Had heavy luggages so was not too happy that there was no elevator and we had to lug our luggages up to our room. Fortunately it was only 1 flight of stairs. Laundry was self-service and free of charge but laundry room will be locked at 8pm.

Room Tip: Request ground floor apartments if traveling with luggage.

Stayed overnight on way to Queenstown to visit our son. Very well looked after - picked up/dropped off at the airport, lovely rooms and very handy for bus into Christchurch. So good we stayed on the way home too! Thanks Lynn - hope to see you again.

Stayed here one night with two adults and three children in a two bedroom apartment before our flight out of NZ.
Location is close to the airport with a free shuttle run by the motel. Distance to the city can be easily overcome with taxi or public transportation. There are not a lot of things to do close by.
Rooms are immaculate as are the rest of the facilities. These include free use of washing machine and dryer.
We had a great welcome and all questions and requests were adequately dealt with. Service with a smile. We asked for the transfer to the airport and although we had time, a taxi was called because the motel shuttle took a bit longer to return. No efforts are being spared to make your stay pleasant.
We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed there for our first night in New Zealand. Very quiet location, free pick up from the airport, good for the first night, nothing fancy, but clean and pleasant, nice staff. We found nice take away shop near by, Kendal Seafood, was the best fish and chips we ever had. Would stay there again and recommend for a friend.

Very clean & spacious rooms. Very nice and helpful staff. The resident cat, Ems, will escort you to your room. There are a few restaurants within walking distance doe dinner. Very quick and easy to get to airport, which was perfect for our 6 am flight. Free shuttle service wasn't running that early, but staff got us a cab at a reduced, fix rate. Will definitely stay again if ever in New Zealand.
