“Very good value and spacious accomodation”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Apartment style accomodation with all the amenities. The bed was comfortable and the cleanliness was to a high standard. A little patio area was a nice touch to the ground floor accomodation we stayed in.

Thank you for writing this review. A lot of our guests enjoy the wee patio upstairs (particularly for the afternoon sun in summer). Others prefer the garden units for their morning sun. We hope you will visit us again in the future.

The room was spacious, clean and suited our overnight needs very well. It is close to the airport for those midnight arrivals. We collected a key as instructed as the reception is not 24hour. The staff were pleasant and helpful. A stress free start to our South Island holiday.

We are always pleased when we hear that our after- hours check-in has made a late arrival into Christchurch a stress-free one. We hope that you enjoyed your onward journey in New Zealand and we hope that we can welcome you back again some day.

We stayed for three nights in a two bedroom apartment which was spacious and modern - really lovely. Unfortunately we found the motel manager to be quite unfriendly. When we checked in he gave me a run down of the wifi pricing options - I chose the $10 option which he said would last for the duration of our stay - it didn't as he had only provided me with the $5 option. When he handed me the keys to the unit, we just assumed that we were in unit 14 in the building next to the office - I was embarrassed to find that the room was already occupied. When I went back down to the office to explain what happened the manager was irritated and unapologetic and made me feel like this was my fault - when he initially handed me the keys he didn't have the foresight to direct me to the correct building. There were two roll away beds in the apartment which we assumed came with the room - this was great as my father used one because my mother wasn't feeling well. When the manager delivered our breakfast the next morning (which was cold), he demanded to know why the rollaway beds were in the room and made us feel like we had stolen them! Then he moaned that he would have to change the sheets on the used bed - dad said he was using the bed but the manager ignored him and abruptly took the beds away without offering to leave one with us. All he had to do was offer it to us and tell us how much it would cost etc. He didn't charge us for the night we used the bed which was decent of him. We didn't require our room to be serviced after our first night there but were disappointed to find that it had only been partially serviced after our second night - the bathroom sink and bath had not been cleaned. All in all the manager probably shouldn't be in hospitality.

A truly disappointing review. After your visit we went through your review with our employee and found there were a number of areas where he fell short in his customer service. The employee was embarrassed and frustrated by our room service attendants who were supposed to have removed these beds prior to your arrival but clearly you felt the brunt of his frustrations. Whilst the employee in question no longer works for us, rest assured that your feedback was taken seriously and a new process was put in place to avoid this situation happening again. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback.

Although this is a no smoking hotel it only applies to the rooms. we were there on a very warm day and the hotel does not have air conditioning so we had to have the windows open to survive. unfortunately the grounds are not no smoking and we were on the second floor. the people below us were outside their room smoking and the smoke filled our room so we had to close the windows. not good. we also had an early flight and requested a wake up call which never came.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As with all properties in New Zealand it is compulsory that we provide designated smoking areas outside for our guests. I'm sorry that this smoke found its way into your unit and as a non-smoker I understand your frustration.

This motel is pretty standard for airport accommodation - functional and comfortable. We partiicularly appreciated the free floor space area for repacking before a flight. I suspect this feature was not intentional, but it was good anyway! Internet is not free but relatively inexpensive.

We stayed here for one night at the end of our two week tour of the south island and loved it. We had stayed at a big variety of places during our trip and this was the best motel we stayed at by far. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, modern and spotless. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom lovely. Our room had a ranch slider that opened to garden area with a table and chairs. Nice touch. The person who greeted us was helpful and welcoming. Furthermore, the room rate was very reasonable. Next time we are in Christchurch we will stay here for sure. Well done Airport Delta.

A fabulous review from a Trip Advisor Top Contributor. I'm glad you liked our courtyard studios, the sun in the mornings in the garden is just beautiful.

We stayed at the Delta for one evening and were impressed with the room- unfortunately not with the staff. We were offered a wifi code at check in and were under the impression it was complimentary. Unfortunately, the wifi was not free, so we incurred a $25 charge. One of the owners phoned our room half an hour before we were due to leave for the airport to inform us of the fee. He became quite aggressive towards us (two females) even after we had agreed to pay the charge. The owners sent an email after our stay requesting that I didnt write a review in exchange for our $25 back. I wouldn't recommend staying here.
