“Great place”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We stayed at this hotel prior to picking up a campervan to travel the south island and on our return prior to our early morning flight to Oz. We normally would stay in the city but given the limited accomadation in christchurch and our eight month old baby we thought being near the airport may be useful.

We were pick up by the shuttle bus within 15 minutes of calling them, they ahd given us a large room and the cot was already set up (complete with proper cot linen, towels and toiletries for the baby). The studio room was very well equipped and as last a hotel that provides real milk and gives a choice of fat or skinny (both in fridge). The service of a free shuttle a near Taven was excellent. There is a good fish and chip shop around the corner for take away.The free laundry, and daily newspaper was also a nice touch. It was also easy to get into the city by bus. A great hotel with friendly staff we will be back,

With very little choice for accommodation in Christchurch we stumbled across the Airport Palms. Found the room to be modern and clean, basic but all we needed for an overnight stay. Staff were helpful & friendly. Only negative was a bouncy bed & even worse pillows! Overall, would recommend for close airport accommodation.

We are return Customers who live in Aussie and return to NZ frequently. We always return to Brisbane on an early morning flight from CHCH. This motel is an excellent location for the early morning flights. Sleep longer and travel less distance to airport is the positives of Airport Palms Motel. Great staff and Services as well :) No Problem getting wireless Internet either :) Thanks Lynn :)

This is a fairly new hotel with very comfortable and spotless rooms. There's a free airport shuttle from 7am till 8pm. We had to go the airport outside these hours, but Lynn the friendly owner arranged a taxi for us. The hotel has arranged a fixed price for this with the taxi company, which is only about $15.
There's a dairy nearby where you can get some groceries and a fish and chips shop. The closest restaurants are in Bishopdale, which is a 45 minutes walk (one way). We had dinner at Abalone Thai Restaurant, the food there was pretty good. There are restaurants that offer a complimentary return shuttle, but we prefered to walk. There's a book in the hotelroom with info about all the restaurants in the area.

Stayed here for a night before collecting camper van. Arrived late from Queensland and instructions provided ensured we were in our 2 bed apartment without hassle. Fantastic clean apartment with comfy beds.

The owner provided cheerful service by recommending a nearby store for munchies and arranging to drop us off at the camper rental joint.

Highly recommended and would definitely stay there again.
