Convenience to Christchurch airport is the main selling point here, but there's much more to be said. I arrived at 1:30am and received in advance by email clear and accurate instructions on out-of-office access to my room. The room was clean, reasonably spacious, and nicely furnished. Service throughout my stay was friendly and polite. If you need easy access to... More

A rating of very good is a bit complimentary but average feels a bit unfair also, more of a 3.5 than a 4 in our view. All the important things were spot on, cleanliness, comfy beds, good heating, good wifi and lovely reception, nothing to complain about at all. We travel to CHC regularly (every 3 weeks) so can compare... More

I stayed for 1 night, and had a wonderful experience. The owner is very kind, he took us to our room, showed the laundry room (which is free) and also told us about the nearest restaurants. The restaurant is so recommended also. The room is very clean and warm, so comfortable. Definitely will going back here again

I could not fault the Airport Palms Motel. After arriving late in the evening and retrieving my key from the key safe, I was pleasantly surprised to find someone had gone to the trouble of turning on my light and heater. The room was warm, spacious, clean and quiet. I thoroughly recommend the Airport Palms Motel.

This motel is close to the airport and we got a taxi- not too expensive . We arrived late in the evening and after initial problems- got our key from the key safe. The 2 bedroom apartment is well appointed with kitchenette, queen bed in one room and twin beds in another. Beds have electric blankets but the room was... More

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Palms. The room was modern,clean and comfortable. What was even better was the great service we received from the manager! He was so accommodating, from finding us a cooking bowl for our dinner to personally driving us to the airport. Highly recommend!

Airport Palms Motel was fantastic. Very close to the airport for those who need it. The rooms were great. Everything was up to a high standard and the owners were extremely nice. We stayed during winter, but you wouldn't have known it was cold outside as the room was so warm from the minute we walked in.

Modern, quiet, well equipped, warm and close to the airport. Great cafe down the road. Lovely helpful host. The stairs are a challenge with a heavy suitcase but you can choose a ground level room. Parking is right outside the room. Beds are comfortable.
