We were staying in Christchurch for a wedding and this motel was recommended to us by the bridal couple in their invitation, along with a few others on the same street.
We picked Airport Palms Motel as it was the cheaper option.
The location near the airport was perfect and they offered a free airport pick up service.
The room was very clean and new, the bed was comfortable and the extra towels were great. We stayed for 3 nights and the room was well serviced each day. The unit we were in had a small desk with two chairs, King bed, TV on the wall and a small kitchenette with a microwave and decent amount of glasses. There was an ironing board and iron as well, which was handy when getting ready for the wedding.
The bathroom was a good size and had a big mirror and enough bench space around the sink.
Overall I would recommend this motel to others, the close location to the airport was good and it only took about 10 minutes to drive into town as well. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
