The staff were lovely and made for a very easy checkin. The room was very outdated and in need of some severe updating. Unfortunately our room looked nothing like the photos, which was very disappointing. There are some nicer rooms in the resort so my advice is to double check which one you're signing up to before booking.

Cannot speak highly enough of the super helpful and friendly team here at The Airport Gateway Motor Lodge. Upon arriving at 1am into Christchurch airport there was a very kind man waiting for us in the shuttle to bring us back to the motel that was very unexpected I actually thought that I had to ring and organise someone to...

Frayed towels, and old sheets. Piece of carpet taped down with duct tape. Was a bit rough round the edges. Also took a week for the $50 hold to be reversed and taken off my credit card. I'm sure there were better places, near the airport where I should have stayed instead.

This was my first stay here on the 4th August 2016. It was an overnight stay only before flying to Nelson the following day. I chose it for the convenient locality to the Airport and it was most definitely a great choice. My room was however on the 2nd floor and parking close to my room wasn't quite possible, I... More

Being our first time in Christchurch we wanted a hotel close to the airport for our early morning flight. Airport gateway was very nice, modern, clean and very close to the airport they have a shuttle that can take you as well but we had a rental car i would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment. The kitchen was separated from the living and bedrooms which was really good for reducing disturbances. Kitchen was well equiped - good sized refrigerator and well stocked with quality appliances. Check-in/check-out was swift and complimentary shuttle service to the airport could be organised at time of check in. We had dinner at the Flight... More
