We booked this place after reading such good reviews and the reviews were certainly accurate. We were only here for 1 night in transit. Bill is such a lovely man. He collected us from the airport and offered a late check out the next morning as we weren't returning to the airport until lunchtime. He also took us to the...

Great motel in prime location close to the Airport and a handy drive to the city. Staff were friendly and obliging - nothing was too much trouble - even when I paid using AMEX! Organising a FREE morning shuttle to the airport was easy. The unit itself was totally spotless and comfortable - thoroughly deserving of a top rating. And...

We had a 2 night stay here recently and it was very good, easy to find, easy to park, clean and comfortable. Pat and Bill were very friendly and seem to take great pride in their business. We particularly liked the provision of fresh milk in our fridge on arrival and the good selection of teas and coffees. Although we...

We loved Airport Palms. We stayed here at the beginning of our trip and again at the end. It is close to the airport. It is very clean, comes with lots of amenities, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying here!!

A very handily located motel for Christchurch Airport. Very modern and well presented rooms with a wonderful kitchenette with everything you could possible want. The owners were lovely and approachable and chatty in the wonderful way that most Kiwi's are. I really cannot fault this place. It is comfortable and very clean. As with all airport hotels and motels the...

Stayed one night before flying out of Christchurch. Very convenient location. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Free laundry service was very nice to allow us to wash our clothes before leaving.

We enjoyed our one night stay in the Airport Palms Motel before our flight - very comfy family room. After we left I realised I'd left a gore-tex jacket hanging in the wardrobe. The relief manager Sharlene went to significant effort to post it back to us in Australia. Thank you so much, Sharlene!

Great Motel, with very friendly stuff. Very clean bedrooms and restroom. Easy parking spot available for every room. Super close to the Christchurch Airport. The motel offer complimentary Airport transportation. The gentleman was very nice sending us to the APEX rental car office, instead of the airport. Which saved us time to get APEX people pick us up from airport...
