Reviewed September 7, 2013

Our recommendation, book now!.Everything about this motel is good. Immaculate, Inviting, Friendly,are three adjectives, that quickly spring to mind about these premises.Tastefully furnished, with warm comfy beds, nice kitchenette,and luxury bathroom, finish off the creature comforts nicely.
The Palms, is run by Lyn, but we suspect that it is," M " the Motels house cat, who is really in charge!!.Both can be found at reception, or patrolling the grounds,they and the housekeeping staff are friendly and approachable, and go out of their way to make your stay really special Simply wonderful. Its Just like coming home.!!

Room Tip: choose a room away from road

Excellent accomodation for stop over/late night arrival. Modern, clean and comfortable beds. Complimentary milk was enough for our family of four to have cereal that we brought with us before picking up our campervan. Complimentary transport to the campervan depot near the airport was provided without any fuss by the airport palms motel. No shopping area in walking distance.

We stayed here for 1 night before we flew back home. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our arrival was delayed. Just had to call up and was given details on key collection. Very convenient location and surprisingly, it was very spacious and clean.

My mother and I stayed here for one night. The service was brilliant - letting us in early - and everything was done to ensure that our stay was pleasant. The room was spotless and quiet. Easy parking and access to the airport. I would highly recommend staying in this motel:-)

Very nice, modern unit and well set up kitchen but the best part was the wonderful comfortable king size bed. Had a great nights' sleep and a much appreciated shuttle to the airport, next morning. Shame Hamilton was fog bound and we finished up in Tauranga though!!!!

We arrived after hours and had no issue collecting our keys and finding our room. As we had called prior to arrival, we were given very good details on how to get the keys and where to go. The rooms were immaculate and very large. The service was wonderful, and the owner was extremely friendly and helped us contact our rental car company for a pick up. There are shuttles available to the airport which is only a short drive. Perfect location if you need to get to the airport early. Overall we had a fantastic experience at this motel, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great little place close enough to the airport (though not walking distance). We stayed in large 1 bedroom units on two occasions. The first time we arrive after hours - we had no issues collecting our key and finding the unit. The rooms were modern, clean and large enough for our group of 4 adults.

Our only gripe was the lack of free wifi. It's become ubiquitous in many countries, so I'm hoping Airport Palms will get on board soon too! Entering credit card details or buying vouchers seems excessive for a quick check of emails or driving directions.
