Reviewed May 5, 2012

Having arrived CH CH at 2am on a delayed flight from Brisbane and camping in a hire car alongside Burnside Park in freezing cold temps , the good folk at Aaburg Motel were a godsend at 8 am on a cold Saturday morning, not only did they rush cleaning a room for me ,well before check in time , I did not have any prior booking !,but the sheer friendliness of mine hosts was heart warming in the extreme . Yes the rooms are dated , but clean , most comfortable and very well priced imho.. I do plan to stay there on my next NZ visit .

The friendly owners will collect you from and take you back to the airport which is very close.The motel style rooms are a little dated but spotlessly clean.Heating could be better but the beds were very comfortable and shower efficient and hot. We had a family type unit with two rooms,kitchen,shower etc. Kitchen facilities were available for self catering although we only used it for making coffee and tea which was provided with a jug of fresh milk.There is a good Garden Centre coffee shop(terra nova) a few minutes walk away for breakfast/ lunch.

Same as other review, the heating in the rooms were not good enough, our electric blanket was not functioning. The size of the rooms were fine, but it was a little bit too compact at the toilet. The motel is a bit dated but still worth for money.

Heating not good enough for NZ winters. No heater in the bathroom. Rooms very dated. Blown light bulbs not replaced. General below standard for the price. Staff not particularly helpful.

We booked here for our last night in New Zealand as we had to be at airport at 4am. For the price we could have done much better elsewhere. Owners were friendly but room was very dated. It did have kitchen facilities which we made use of but the bathroom was awkwardly set out and the rooms did not have adequate heating. Only one radiator was provided but did little to heat the rooms. It was handy to the airport but next time I will stay elsewhere.

Our unit was adequate for a one night stay.
The bed was soft and the 100 watt heater was inadequate for heating the concrete block construction.
The kitchen was reasonable and the shower had plenty of hot water..

After taking the Tranz Scenic train ride from Greymouth to Christchurch we were ready to call it a day and we had a room booked at the Aarburg Airport Motel. When we arrived via shuttle (Canterbury Shuttles - great service) at the motel, we apparently interrupted dinner and were not warmly welcomed. The room was average and in need of renovation. We did not have a car and did not have many options for dinner close by so we ordered pizza delivery (Hell Pizza), which was delicious. We were picked up the next morning by Canterbury Shuttle and transported to the airport for an early morning flight. Hotel was close to the airport but no transportation provided at the time we needed.
