“A dated 70's style needs up-dating for price you pay”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed 1 night between flights , typical old style motel , needs decor up- dating to 21st century , unit was clean but looked like some residential welfare folk staying in them up till 12:30am making noise ----- tv good although volume dodgy -no restaurants in walking distance ---short drive to airport----- wouldn't stay again as have had a lot nicer for a loss less money ..

Although the rooms are pretty ordinary it is quiet and comfortable for a one night stay. Handy to shops and airport. Great play facilities for kids are what sets it apart. Nice to have full stove with oven. Fridge noisy.

We stayed here on our last night as we had a 6.30am flight out. It's only a few minutes to the airport, but we barely heard any noise from either the airplanes or the other guests. Its interior is pretty dated and the kitchen isn't too flash, but for the price, it was just what we needed. The lady at reception was also very nice and the free dvds were great. If you need the internet, as with a lot of the wi-fi schemes in NZ, it's cheaper to set up and pay for an account online using your credit card than buying the pre-paid card from reception. I think it was $20 for 24 hours for the card, and only $10 using credit card online.

Room Tip: I think they're all pretty much the same.

This place is kind of holiday park meets 1970s motel. It's the kind of place i imagine is used by the welfare department as emergency accommodation. It's horrible and I couldn't agree less with the other reviewers.
On the plus side the WiFi ($15 for 24hours) was excellent and the TV worked. The kitchen was not functional but clean and welcomed as nothing was open on New Years day in Christchurch.
If you have no where else to stay this is a clean option........

We stayed overnight here at the beginning and end of our NZ trip. It's very close to the airport so very handy for late/early flights, but is also very quiet. Their airport shuttle service runs from 7am to 2am which is a great asset. We had a luggage problem on arrival but the staff did all they could to resolve it and were very helpful generally. The double room was roomy and comfortable with full cooking facilities, and the bathroom was adequate. The only minor inconvenience was that we had a long walk, or a bus ride, to find a good place to eat. We'd certainly stay here again for an overnight stop.

My family stayed just one night between our campervan adventure and our flight home. We were very needy guests for the 12 hrs we stayed.

I needed to get back to the campervan depot to retrieve forgotten items, and John at reception assisted me in finding transport. He also gave plenty of advice and information to make our day smooth.

The next morning at 4am we left for the airport and quickly had to return to retrieve a forgotten bag, and upon waking John he was happy to help.

Further to that, John contacted me to tell me I had forgotten out iPad and that he would mail it to us. Apparently, my family doesn't function well at 4am. John was and is very helpful and willing to do what's needed web for troublesome guests like us

Thanks, we happily recommend staying at this great motel!

We booked a motel with one room but was offered with two bedroom motel without additional cost. Maybe its just luck for us or wrongly assigned. Anyhow, the motel was very big with individual heater, complete cooking facilities, dvd player etc even with heated blanket. Very close to the airport and many car rental depot in walking distance, so you don't need to call a taxi after return your van or car. Their free shuttle is after 7:00 am but they still can arrange a taxi if you need to go early to airport.

The staff is not many there especially after hour, so if you required a late check in please let them know early.
