From the moment we checked in, we couldn't fault this lovely place. Reception were incredibly helpful, organising our early morning transfer to the airport, and generally making us feel relaxed. The room was clean, comfortable and just what we needed on our last night in New Zealand.

Very well organized motel. Our room was nice with enough space, good bed, very clean, little kitchen, quick WiFi, modern style and very friendly staff. It was a nice arrival, even at midnight, we received a code to entry and this was working well. It was also very nice that we could leave our bagage on the departure day, so...

We were on our way to Nelson and stopped here to get a good nights sleep and they did not disappoint. Free shuttle pickup from the airport and a short 10 minute drive to location. Very clean rooms with sky tv and a nice dairy and a Japanese restaurant nearby. Also had really fast wifi, which was great for us...

We stayed this last week for two nights prior to our bike trip of five days, then one night after, before journeying back home to Australia. Was great to be picked up by Bill from the airport on our arrival, then shepherded back there to catch a plane yesterday afternoon. The rooms were lovely, both clean and spacious, especially our...

We stayed one night after a very long flight from the US east coast. We were promptly met at the airport by Bill who along with Pat, provided helpful information about the area. Bill even offered to drive us to our rental car office the next morning. We plan to stay with them again before our flight back home. Our...

Staff were very helpful and offered shuttle service to the airport. Room was clean,tidy & functional. There are self catering capabilities within the room which was handy. When we went to pick up our camper van from an unspecified location around the Christchurch airport, Bill was informed enough to know we would be stranding ourselves in the wrong location. He...

Nice tidy motel only 5 minutes drive from the Christchurch airport. Close to pubs and shops also. (10 minute walk) Hosts were very helpful and friendly. Late check in was easy with a key safe process. (Details emailed through a day or so before our arrival) 2 night stay over was all good. NZD15 cab ride was no issue, as...

Owner Bill is very pleasant and helpful. They will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. It is less than a block to two different bus lines and the neighborhood is nice and safe. There's a decent place for breakfast across the street.

My friend and I stayed here 2 nights - the night we flew in to Christchurch from Sydney and the night before we flew back. First things first - the Info Desk at the Airport told us that there was no free Aiport Shuttle to this Motel so we ended up walking the 1.9km. When we got there, the people...
