This motel was perfect. We've never experienced that before. There's always been something to detract from a great place, no matter how minor. Of course, not finding anything wrong, we looked harder :) Still perfect. Thank you to managers Sharlene and Graham for the great hospitality!

Great people/owners - helpful & friendly. Clean room & tasteful decor with great facilities/amenities - nice 'extras' as in real coffee for the percolater!! Fast unlimited wifi made teenagers very happy! Free airport shuttle service was helpful & they stored our car at a cheap rate for us while we were away. Will definitely recommend!!

Modern, spotlessly clean and spacious apartment, perfect for our overnight stopover. Located just 5 mins from Christchurch airport and offering a free shuttle during the day. Would be great for a longer stay. Super efficient booking process. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Highly recommend.

We were thoroughly impressed with the ease of moving in and out of this Motel the night before going to the airport. There was a lot of room inside and outside the door. The layout and functionality of the Motel Room we stayed was awesome as well. Perfect Design. Thanks for a great stay.

Conveniently located close to the airport we arrived at midnight so had to take a taxi (NZ$23). Beds were extremely comfortable, wifi was fast, room was spacious and quiet. The next morning our host drove us directly to our hire car depot in the courtesy shuttle which was very much appreciated.

Called hotel for pickup on landing at Christchurch airport. Host Bill's fast-paced Kiwi accent was a difficult to follow as he gave instructions for proceeding to the pickup point. He retorted that I was speaking too fast, rather than slow down to help. Ended up waiting at a point slightly off, based on iSite instructions (whom Bill had referred us...

Hi Aunachalam V, Thank you very much for your feedback following your stay with us. We apologise for your initial experience you had with us but it is becoming increasingly frustrating for all concerned on your arrival to our Airport as they are very strict on us adhering to their ever changing rules on pickup points and also for us...
