“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We rrived on one of the coldest wettest days in Canterbury
Lynn was amazing my husband has a condition that stairs can effect and this lovely lady shows me other options we could have. However hubby had got up he stairs and was staying there.
We had been upgraded and the unit was beautiful and warm , 2 lovely chocolate caramel muffins awaiting us together wjth chocy caramel latte sachets and local paper of the day. We had had quiet a week so how lovely to feel thoroughly spoilt, lovely shower, lovely bed etc etc.Options with meals and next morning Lynn took us to the airport pointing us in the right direction of departures. We were able to leave our rental car there for pick up so all in all this is THE PLACE TO STAY IN CHRISTCHURCH
Thankyou so much Lynn and Rebbecca we will be back and spreading the word

We arrived considerably earlier than our estimated time of 3pm, but the cheerful young lady at reception accommodated us with no problems.

The standard room we had booked was compact, but very nicely appointed and with a good-sized bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of local information (maps, brochures etc) in the room.

We were directed to the restaurant at a motel across the road for our evening meal, and enjoyed our meal there - good quality and reasonably priced. As others have mentioned, there didn't appear to be other restaurants within walking distance, although the rooms have micro-wave and crockery/cutlery, so dining-in would be an option.

The airport is a five minute drive away, making the Airport Palms the perfect airport motel.

We arrived in the wee hours of the morning and were out again early next morning. The room was beautifully appointed, and the manager had thoughtfully turned on the heating for us. The drop-off at the airport was much appreciated.

We stayed in room 13 from 1st to 4th August. All the staff were very helpful.The bed was very comfortable. Had a spa bath in our bathroom which was used. The room was up to a very high standard. When leaving we where taken to the airport by courtesy van. Really enjoyed our stay there.

I stayed here for a couple of nights for business. I was in an upstairs room that was very well appointed with a lovely comfortable bed. The nights were frosty when I was there so the electic blanket came into its own! Very convenient for the airport. The whole place was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly. A car would be good for more dining options.

Stayed here one night for business in a studio room. Very comfortable queen bed, big flat screen tv and lovely big heater. Very well kitted out kitchen with microwave and the continential breakfast - well spoilt for choice! There is a hotel/motel nearby where you can have dinner otherwise you need a delivery service if you don't have a car. Lots of this information contained in your room. Manager very friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay again for business or pleasure. Veryc lose to the airport with dedicated per room parking.

We needed a very brief stay in Christchurch, arriving late and leaving for the airport before dawn. The 'motel' reference certainly concerned me however when we arrived, the service was excellent, room was warm, comfortable and clean with a small kitchen (we had the two bedroom apartment) and even had a spa in the bathroom. The complex is only a year or so old and certainly exceeded our expectations for the 'quick stopover' we were looking for.
Being a motel, there are no views to speak of but that wasnt an issue for us.
