Supermarket near Airport?

Hi everyone!

Is there a supermarket near the Sudima hotel, walking distance,

OR

near the Airport Lodge Motel,105 Roydvale Avenue?

Which of these hotels has the closest supermarket by foot. We won't have the car on this day. We need to choose 1 night in the hotel with the closest supermarket!

Thanks!

No supermarkets that close to the airport but you could always take a bus! There are supermarkets at Riccarton - lots of motels nearby; bishopdale, Fendalton, Merivale.

No supermarket in a walkable distance. However, on the corner of Wairakei Road and Sheffield Cres is a dairy where you can find some basic things (milk, coffee etc).

The closest one is a new world supermarket fendalton which is approx 3.1 kms from airport gateway motor lodge. Just continue straight on memorial avenue. There is also a BP connect fuel station there.

Thanks!

Zhuhai - about the bus you suggested, it would be most convenient then to stay at Sudima and take the bus from there right? Since it is right at the airport and there are probably more bus service coming/ going from there?

Another choice is also the Airport Birches hotel if this is close enough to a bus-stop or the supermarket.

Oh yes, I forgot about Avonhead. The #3 bus would go there too. Perhaps you could walk one way for fresh air & exercise after flying and take the bus back with your groceries!!

I think everyone is going to get you lost! There is a New World in the small Fendalton shopping centre just dowm Memorial Ave. If it's a nice day you could walk it in less than 1/2 hour (its about 2km) from the airport, a bit closer from the Sudima ( quickest way from airport to Sudima is walk) or one of the other motels.

Busses all run down Memorial Ave although a new service, the Comet, runs from Hornby via the airport to Northlands

Great Mike!

I think a bus ride from Sudima sounds fine...

Thanks everyone
