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...

Very nice motel. Friendly helpful managers, cozy place, great location (5 min. to the airport), modern room. The manager referred us to the Flight Lounge restaurant, near the hotel : good value for the money.

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.

Only used for overnight stay but were given useful information about the local amenities. Managers printed off my boarding passes for me and gave us a ride to the airport. Very friendly and helpful. Room clean and comfortable

We stayed twice in this motel, on our arrival in Christchurch and again two weeks later on our departure. The facility was clean, modern, and the staff were very helpful. We felt it was good value for the money

What a great motel! The property and rooms are new and feels like the sort of place where you don't mind taking your shoes off in the room. The kitchenette has bowls, plates, and utensils which was great for a light breakfast. They also have tea, a coffee maker and cookies. Everyone was extremely nice. We were travelling with bikes...
