“Not good”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

My partner and I arrived here in the early hours after flying in to NZ. Thankfully we were only stopping off en route elsewhere.
The room was foisty and old-fashioned, and not very clean. The bedsheets were old and a little damp, and the en-suite bathroom was grim.
For the price, this place was very poor, although the host was helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: go elsewhere

This is the perfect place to stay before flying out or on your way into Christchurch. The owners could not have been more helpful or welcoming.
A big shopping centre just down the road is a perfect place to eat or chill out for a couple of hours.

Rubina and her husband are the loveliest most helpful owners. The room was warm and immaculately clean and had everything we needed including microwave and hot plates. Wonderful place to stay, and close to the airport. Includes an airport shuttle service. Would highly recommend and will stay here again.

The room was warm and cosy. Immaculately clean and had everything we needed including microwave and hot plates. The owners are lovely and very welcoming. Wonderful place to stay, sleep and be the night before flying.
Includes an airport shuttle service! Too easy.
We will stay here again.

Stayed here twice now and both times have found it to be a great motel. Rooms are very spacious & clean, and the hosts couldnt have been more helpful.. Everyday there is a little plate of biscuits or crackers left in the room, always offering the use of dvds from reception and helpful recommendations for dinner options.

The owners of Papanui court are very friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was renovatd to be access-friendly and was warm, spacious and had all the amenities you would need from a motel. Little touches like cookies and crisps being left for you each day (free of charge) were wonderful - and the electric blanket on the bed was heavenly!
