Nice and clean and welcoming, very well priced. Will be staying here next time I'm in Chch. Absolutely immaculate room, well heated, and a compact yet very nice bathroom. TV has most of the good channels, Wi-Fi is very quick and doesn't drop out.

We stayed here twice in February, the first stay we arrived late and the key was left in a secure keybox which was easy to locate and we had a good sleep in a comfortable bed. We utilised the free shuttle bus in the morning to take us back to the airport to collect our hire car. Free wi-fi in...

Room was clean and comfortable and reasonably close to the airport which was our main requirement. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside was wifi was very hit and miss and had difficulty logging on.

We arrived at the Motel to be greeted by Lynn on reception who could not have been more helpful. Our room was bright, comfortable with a fridge, cooker, microwave and kettle. Just a short ride from the airport although the shuttle only runs at certain times we ordered a taxi that cost $22.50 so no big deal. Great night of...

Thankyou for your kind review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Our airport shuttle operates 8am-10am and 2pm-8pm - we have a set discounted fare with our preferred taxi company which is very reasonable after these hours.

Lynn was a really helpful host with a happy demeanour. The motel was situated near the airport and was easy to get to and the check-in process was very good. The room we hired was a basic room but served our purposes admirably and as priced accordingly.

Just the one night here after landing in Christchurch. Only 5 minute drive from Airport, the rooms were clean, reasonably modern and beds were comfortable. It is also close to fuel station and grocery stores. The staff were excellent and our only complaint was that the room was small for 4 people (our 2 children are nearly adults). Had a...

Thankyou for your review - we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. To accommodate larger families we do have a Two Bedroom Townhouse which is very reasonable and great for bigger kids. Sometimes when bookings come through - we are unable to determine whether 'children' are littlies or teenagers. We look forward to your return visit sometime.
