This is easily the best motel of our NZ visit and would give any motel anywhere a run for its money. The studio was immaculate, very cleverly designed, beautifully decorated and provided with everything a visitor might need and all in tip-top condition. That is true even of the kitchenette which, though small, is perfectly adequate for visitors who are...

After several days traveling around the south Island, the room was a very pleasant surprise. I was given milk at reception and found the kitchenette well stocked of beverages. Wifi was excellent throughout. The onsite restaurant served perfectly good food and trust me, I've eaten out a lot over the last few days. Service was great and staff were friendly...

Very nice, big room. Extremely comfortable. Staff were uniformly helpful and my brief stay was much better than I expected from essentially an airport hotel. I would be happy to make this my base if I were staying in Christchurch. Recommended.

We were a bit apprehensive when we saw good ratings for an airport hotel. Considering we were in the city for a short while we stayed but we had a pleasant surprise. Clean place run very efficiently. The staff are professional but could be more helpful. Good, direct bus connection to city center.

We had an early flight so wanted to stay as close to the airport as possible. We really liked that this one had a free shuttle as we didn't have to worry about dropping the rental car back at 3am... We stayed in the older section and for the price you'd expect something more updated, but for the convenience it...

We flew in from Vancouver and they had an early check in ready for us. We had the 2 bedroom for 4 adults. It was located close to the airport which was great because it was our first time driving on the opposite side of the road. The room was very clean, full kitchen, 2 tv's, dining table and comfy...

We considered the price a bit steep for the quality of the room we had on the ground floor. The motel appears to be undertaking a much needed renovation - I recommend asking for a room on the upper floor as the room we stayed in on the ground floor was very basic for the price.
