My family and I stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. There was plenty of space and all of the rooms where comfortable, quiet and clean. They were also very modern. The motel is very quiet and we had a wonderful sleep. Would recommend.

I stayed at airport palms after attending a funeral in kurow. We were on a very tight schedule and after flying in on the Friday morning, driving to kurow and back, we were extremely tired by the time we made it to the motel. Check in was easy. Although there was a little bit of confusion as we had booked online thought the 'Jason's Tavel' site. We had just made to before reception closed but there was also a late night key pick up box. Rooms were small but had everything we needed. Beds were comfy and rooms were clean. Check out was also really easy and staff were friendly. I wouldn't recommend this motel for longer stays - at least not in the room we had just due to room size. I also was a bit disappointed at the cost of the room as it was very basic and have paid less for a lot more. Other than that the motel was perfect for what we needed.

We, (four of us), stayed at the Airport Palms on our last night of our three week trip around NZ. We couldn't have chosen a better place. It was clean, comfortable, well situated and the proprietors were superb in giving advice on restaurants and accommodating our other needs. Couldn't recommend it higher.

Room Tip: Go for one of the biggest rooms at the back.

Two couples shared a 2 bedroom apartment that was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious and elegantly furnished. Double glazed windows reduced the road noise at night time. The lounge had a large wall mounted TV and another one in the main bedroom. The motel grounds were very attractive and the whole complex was meticulously maintained. The hosts

We were very happy with the room we booked in Christchurch for a one night stay before our flight back home - quiet, comfortable and had everything we needed for a light dinner and breakfast (fridge, crockery, cutlery, washing up facilities etc.) They even provided some milk for tea and coffee. The manager was very helpful on our arrival (advising the closest petrol station). We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Airport Palms Motel.

Spotlessly clean and all mod cons. Very comfortable bed. Even though our room, number 9 faced the road, it was quiet. Wake up call and taxi both on time for a very early flight.
Restaurant and takeaways very handy, and owners very helpful.
Would stay here again!
