The accomodation was clean and close to the airport and the family we were visiting. plus long but easy access to central Christchurch. The bathroom was excellent. Only improvement would be a dishwasher or perhaps like others are doing now dishes washed at a central location by staff to ensure uniform hygiene. But otherwise very good. We didn't need it,...

Room was clean and tidy and had lots of space. Staff were extremely helpful even though they were very busy. Shuttle service was excellent, they picked us up from Apex Rentals after dropping our car off and dropped us off at airport for our early morning flight. The motor lodge is also located quite close to the airport which meant...

I could hear every conversation and footstep - unfortunately we were at the top of the stairs so everyone on the upper floor passed our room. The room was in full sunlight in the afternoon and even with curtains drawn and AC on it was very hot. On the upside the room was very clean and well appointed and parking...

Room had everything you could want including small kitchen area. Very clean and good parking. Staff were all excellent from helpful and informative reception staff, to very busy but efficient young lady running restaurant and bar alone to the shuttle driver who was chatty efficient and very polite.

This is a very convenient and economical property. The ` twenty four hour Airport shuttle is a real plus, as is the Park and Fly service. In the motel, the rooms are large and comfortable and the amenities are exactly what a person needs.

Airport Gateway was practically a pioneer in recognising that some international flights to Christchurch arrive late at night or even wee small hours. They have set their service (pick up room service etc) to take account of that - and they do it well. The Flight Lounge is a pleasant place for a drink (a trifle pricey but good choice...

The staff very obliging and helpful. Really good to have shuttle service both ways to airport. Bus stop to city centre just outside complex. $4.00 into Christchurch bus centre per person (adult). Our room was in old block - so just be aware when you booking that there are two levels of accommodation and a lot of the pictures show...

We had a perfectly good one night's stay at this hotel near the airport. The bed was large, neither too hard or too soft, and the shower was terrific. The kitchenette had a stove, fridge, coffee press (yay!), and cutlery, and the room was a good size. Also, the wifi was super fast and unlimited! The downsides: the towels were...

I found the Airport Gateway Lodge and booked here mainly as the price was really reasonable. The property is a very pleasant surprise, a lovely and spacious room, thoughtful, comfortable and good quality furnishing. Nice linen and towels and the room was spotless. There is plenty of off-street parking, great proximity to the Airport and the Christchurch motorway system and...

The motor lodge was reasonable value for what it was and nice and close to the airport. While the rooms were were a little old in terms of the facilities (i.e., oven, shower, etc) they were still clean, worked well, and served a purpose. The free unlimited internet and shuttle to the airport were both invaluable additions.
