“Spacious and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Two friends and I stayed here after a long flight from Hong Kong. We had a Two Bedroom unit that had a kitchenette (convenient when there's no restaurant onsite). The staff was friendly and very helpful with directions and recommendations for food in the area. The location is great - close to the airport and grocery store. It's also in a quiet residential area so we had a great rest that night.

We stayed a couple of nights in total at Airport Palms Motel. The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. It is very close to the airport (5 min) and in a residential area.
The staff is very nice and helpful. I really recommend this motel in Christchurch.

There is no better place to book if you need one night before or after a flight. Service is better than at a top of the range or more pricy hotel. You may also stay for more as the two room apartments are very comfortable and quiet. Quality of welcome is outstanding.

Room Tip: All is good

The room is clean and comfortable. The surroundings are nice too, and the staff there is friendly.
The room we stayed doesn't have full-kitchen equipments, but it is ok for an airport motel.
It could be better if it can provide 24-hrs free airport transfer.

We stayed here the night before our flight and the rooms were very spacious and clean. The host was very helpful and we got the shuttle to pick us up from the airport after we had to drop off our hire car. The only thing that we feel should be changed is how the WiFi is operated. You only get 30 minutes a time and have to keep going back to reception to get more. This is a nice place to stay before flying out of Christchurch airport.

This place is about 3 miles from the aiport near a string of other airport hotels. There is not much else in the area without driving 10-15 min or so.

The rooms were pretty big and clean. You did have to pay for the internet.

They have a special deal with taxis in the area so if you stay here and need a taxi to the airport it is a low fixed dare.

Fantastic modern hotel close to the Christchurch airport. Late check-in are not a problem as the owner texts you the key box code 24hrs before arrival. We liked so much that we booked for our departure night as well so i can say early checkouts are also simple. The owner organised a taxi to pick us up at 3.50am which was promptly outside in the morning, easy location for hire car pick-ups / drop-off and within the region for the hire car companies to collect you. Tea, coffee and toaster etc and courtesy milk in the fridge. Reasonably priced too! Nice staff even though we were only there short time, would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: If you are a couple make sure to ask for a double bed, you may get two singles pushed together if yo...
