We stayed at Airport Palm Motel on our last day in NZ. The room was clean, free laundry, free airport shuttle, what more. I forgot my newly purchase Lululemon pants and the staff arrange to courier back for me. Great place and staff!

Very close to the airport.. great parking facility.. great cosy rooms and seamless check-in and check-out experience even in after hours.. great wi-fi.. Best option for you to stay if you are using Christchurch only for transit.. which most people do..

Located near Christchurch airport, even offer free transfer. We stayed on the first night when arriving Christchurch and the night before returning home. This is a very clean hotel, modern facility, new, worth every penny. The laundry room is available free of charge, we wash and dry all clothes before boarding the plane home. Overall, it's very pleasant stay here...

Excellent property, very modern, ultra-clean. Very close to the airport and thus exceptional for transiting (do not know how convenient for visiting the city). Amazingly warm hosts, particularly Bill Shaw. Overflowing with affection and warmth! God bless.

A lovely motel just 5 minutes from the airport. Very friendly and helpful manager, very comfortable, modern and extremely clean room. It was larger and more impressive than I expected. A very quick and easy trip into the CBD, but so close to the airport, yet very quiet. Definitely would stay again, when in Christchurch.

We had one night at this motel. It is very convenient to the airport and they have a shuttle bus. The bed was very comfortable, pillows were luxurious and the shower was nice and strong. It is also reasonably priced. The only other thing we would have liked would have been a ceiling fan. Good spot.

Impeccably clean room with a comfortable bed and nice-sized bathroom. Free, unlimited, high-speed wi-fi was a great way to get caught up during our last night in New Zealand. Can park right outside the room. Several nice places to eat and drink within 5-10 minutes. Early morning drive to the airport took no longer than 10 minutes. This is a...

Great location, close to the airport but in a quite district. Everything is tidy and clean. A nice bed and a hot bath is what we need after the long flight.The kitchenette is well appointed with plenty tools, dishes, goblets, mugs...etc, and all are clean and shinny. They offer more than enough refreshment, too.
