“OUR GRANDSONS FIRST BIRTHDAY”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

We went to Christchurch for our grandsons first birthday.Needing accomadation that was both close to where our son lived,yet affordable for four Adults and two Children.We found all of this at the Airways Motel Christchurch.Offering free shuttle pick up and drop off at the Airport.Great for us as our sons house was just down the road and around the corner.To our amazement a van was offered free {just the petrol cost} for us to use as our transport,while we stayed.We were impressed with the ajoinging rooms-Two Queen beds-two single,two kitchenetts,two Televisons with Wi Fi and internet {free} and two bathrooms.it was a great weekend and very nice affordable accomadation.

Room Tip: When travilling with more than one child,ask for the family room as it has bigger accomadation

With my arrival delayed due to heavy snow in Canterbuy and unable to safely drive on the country roads I decided that on arrival I would try and pick up a hotel close to the airport. Well flight got even more delayed and with the likelihood of fog on arrival I decided to wait until the aircraft had safely made it in before booking a room with anyone. Did not get into 2am, snow everywhere and freezing. Called the usual suspects around the airport without sucess then tried the hotline in the arrivals hall which listed the Airways Motel. They picked up the phone straight away, confrimed a room was available (very reasonable $100) and would be down to pick me up in 5 min with another couple who had also just called. Van arrived on time and meet by a very cheery driver who wisked us back to the motel. On arrival, he dispatched us to our rooms, will do the paperwork in the morning- Brilliant! Lights where on and so was the heating, truly a lovely bit of Kiwi Hospitality. Nice and quite too even though is close to the airport (but not on the flight path) Free WiFi meant I could update everyone on my arrival and plans for later in the morning and the 24 hour service station 100m nearby covered my morning shopping needs nicely. Support these guys they deserve it!

Stayed for one night and it was just great. Nice clean room, heater and good reception on the TV. My family had booked the main house with a few bedrooms,kitchen ect, and they didnt have enough room for my self and 2 cousin's. So i went to reception to see how much 1 room would be for the night. $130 was a great price for king and single beds. Gareth very friendly and was up nice and early to take us to the international airport at 5am.

Thanks you so much, and we will be back to stay with you when ever in CHCH.

This hotel was well located, close to airport yet very quiet area. The hosts are happy to pick you up for airport, even very late at night, and book and pay for a cab for us to get our early flight out of Chch two weeks later. The room is not large but very comfortable and well equipped.

Stayed here going to & from a trip to Melbourne. Room was tidy, clean but compact. Wouldn't want any more than 2 people with luggage. Only negative was the constant traffic noise as motel is close to intersection of 2 main roads. Staff were very helpful & pleasant. Can park your car there while away on holiday which saves a lot of extra hassle
