“Great, friendly hotel.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Very clean & spacious rooms. Very nice and helpful staff. The resident cat, Ems, will escort you to your room. There are a few restaurants within walking distance doe dinner. Very quick and easy to get to airport, which was perfect for our 6 am flight. Free shuttle service wasn't running that early, but staff got us a cab at a reduced, fix rate. Will definitely stay again if ever in New Zealand.

We spent one night here before early flight out of Christchurch Airport the next morning. As the name would suggest, it is very handy to the airport. But it is still only about 15 min to the city centre as well, which is also very convenient. The room we had was large, well appointed (self contained) and very new and clean. It is sort of in the middle of the burbs, and I didn't see too many dining options in the immediate vicinity, which could be a hassle if carless. Price was pretty good, given the location and room quality/cleanliness. Service was friendly and adequate, but perfunctory, as would be expected at any motel. Its on an arterial road, so there was a bit of traffic noise, but that had mainly quietened down by late evening. We certainly appeciated the convenience of the Palms, and will keep it in mind for any future late arrivals or early departures.

The rooms are extremely well equipped and the welcome and service was second to none. We would certainly stay here again. The sitting room is equipped with a 42" flat screen TV and the unit has WiFi and broadband. Superb.

Knowing that we would be arriving in Christchurch at almost midnight, we booked a room close to the airport.
Excellent choice. Very clean, nice amenities and they had a shuttle to take me back to the airport for the rental car.
Definitely recommend the Airport Palms.

We we're very pleased with the room and the lovely amenities. Fresh milk in the fridge was a surprise bonus for our morning coffee. We booked the hotel for it's complimentary airport shuttle but found out on arrival that in the small print it only runs during the day. The front desk staff went out of her way to book us a taxi for the morning and told us it would be $11. We were shocked in the morning when the taxi charged us a flat rate of $24! We usually book our airport hotels based on the location and complimentary shuttle but would consider this hotel again as the staff was very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable.

Lovely clean, spacious room with a very comfy bed. Just what we needed after a very long flight. Airport pick-up was brilliant and we were collected within a few minutes of making a call. Would definitely recommend.
