Location close for walking to a few restaurants. The hosts were so helpful and friendly. We live in Kentucky in the USA. It was our first visit. I mistakenly booked the wrong hotel for Christchurch. When I contacted them just prior to needing to be there luckily they were able to honor my price and accomodate us. Fortunately they had one room left. We loved the room it was clean and in a good neighborhood. We actually stayed here in Feb 2018. I am late in making this post.

We stayed at the Airport Palms for one day while visiting Christchurch. Our flight arrived early and they graciously set us up right away. The owners are wonderful and very knowledgeable. Our room had a Jacuzzi in it, which was perfect after a long day of sightseeing. The location is right on the city bus route as well. We highly recommend this venue. A very solid two thumbs up!

We stayed one night here before we flew home after some very stressful weeks trying to fly back to UK. Graham and Sharlene are wonderful managers. They had super safe conditions in place for social distancing and taking information for contact tracing. They were really kind and helpful to us, helping us to find out where to return our hire car to and there was also a free bus to the airport. Our accommodation was superbly clean and very comfortable with its own good size fridge,,microwave and sink (sonething we found is missing in many hotels in New Zealand). It was a great stay for our last night in New Zealand after our many weeks extended holiday during the coronavirus crisis
