“A motel with no air conditioning?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2010

It was very convenient to the airport, but no air conditioning! Had to ask for a fan. No ice on the floors, had to go to the restaurant. Beds very uncomfortable!

From first impressions, this looked a dismal typical airport hotel, well what a surprise, staff were curteous & helpful , food good ( this was a real surprise), better still great value for money, comfortable beds, plenty of room, good breakfast, overall for a one night stay , this was very much a pleasant surprise.

It is great if you need to be at the airport early in the morning. Although the decor of the hotel is a little old fashioned, the rooms were comfortable, clean and the staff were friendly. They have an efficient free shuttle to the airport terminals. I would recommend this over staying at a nearby motel and having to get a taxi in the early hours of the morning.

Very surprised by how good this was. Close to airport. Food is much better than expected. Bit of a problem with some of staff but not all. Do not be put off by this. well worth staying.

We flew in late to Christchurch (midnight) and were starting our driving thrip the next morning, so this hotel was extremly convenient. It suited it's purpose of a good place to sleep for the night for that reason. The shuttle to and from the airport was quick and easy - they were there to pick us up two minutes after we called from the courtesy phone at the aiprort and were quick to drop us back off to pick up our rental car. If you want to experience what Christchurch has to offer, stay downtown at another hotel - but if just passing through, location and value are to good to pass up.

Quite basic hotel ,which can be quite noisy if you have a room next to the washing machines!!
Only hotel we had to pay for on arrival as well - usually pay when you leave.
Clean and comfy though and only a stone's throw to the airport .
Next to Antarctic centre as well .
