I stayed in a first class room on my final night of a 4 week campervan trip around the South Island. Impeccably clean room. Lots of lovely touches. Heated towel rail. Warm robes to put on after a bath or shower in a well equipped bathroom. Kitchenette even had a coffee plunger and ground coffee 😊 Blissfully quiet. Electric blanket... More

We chose this hotel because it was near the airport and offered free transfers. We got into Christchurch that evening on the TranzAlpine and were flying out at 8am the next day - iiterally needed somewhere to lay our heads for 12 hours. We opted for one of the cheaper rooms in the old part of the hotel, and it... More

Large room set in 3 functions, bedroom en suit bathroom, lounge, and kitchen well equipped. Very comfortable with more space and facility provided. Good location nearby airport with very friendly staff. It's really good if your flight is late in the night or very early in the morning. Free airport transfer.

Can I just start with a simple "Ahhh!" - a relaxing and simple Ahhh. As a bit of background, my husband and I spent 10 nights in icy cold conditions in a camper for a snowboarding holiday before spending our last night in the Airport Gateway Motor Lodge so we could get a red eye international flight out the next...

Staff and facilities excellent. Made a late booking online when all flights out of Christchurch had been cancelled on Friday night during school holiday period. Freephone from airport was answered immediately despite the rush of everyone trying to find a place to stay. Shuttle arrived as advised and check in was a breeze. Room was very clean and very comfortable.... More

This place is just brilliant - they have their model completely sorted! Stayed here after the huge flight from the UK - arrived in the middle of the night, exhausted - used the airport phones to call them as directed expecting at least some sort of usual travel drama. Within 20 mins a min van arrived to pick us and... More

Stayed over two separate nights, I found the staff to be really helpful and couldn't do enough to sort me out. Food at their restaurant was also of a very high quality. I would definitely stay there again. Simon Hazell Dubai

Stayed a night in Jul'16 on the way to catch Tranzalpine train. Very clean and every detail to make the stay comfortable attnded to. They have free shuttle to airport, unfortunately not to rail station. The taxi booked thru them almost let us down in early morning hours next day. Not motel's fault, its the careless and disorganisd taxi company... More

We stayed here the night before we left , and the night of our return to New Zealand. Couldn't fault the pickup and delivery back to the airport on both occasions. Of particular note was the fact that when we arrived back we found the lights on and the heating blasting and it was such a cold evening. It was... More
