“clean and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great facilities. Nice, clean and warm rooms. The beds were very comfortable. Helpful staff. Great to have the chance to do the washing. Handy location for us. Would stay again next time we are in Christchurch city.

Room Tip: Nice place to stay.

We had a great stay at the Airport Palms Motel. The host was very friendly and helpful. Location was very handy near the Airport. Room space was a little limiting but this did not effect the overall positive experience we had.

We stayed there two nights, on night at the start and one at the end of our New Zealand trip and were very happy with our choice. The apartments were very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Overall great value and highly recommended.

We had booked for one night but wanted to extend our stay so that we could do the train journey to Greymouth and back. Pat and Bill were happy to accommodate us. In fact they were happy to do anything to make our stay comfortable and convenient. The room was quiet, clean, a good size and well stocked. Our departures were outside their shuttle hours but Pat booked taxis for us to get to the station and the airport, with a special price for the airport. We arrived back rather later than expected from the train trip but got a warm welcome nevertheless when we went to check one or two things. Highly recommended and especially convenient for the airport, with a real sense that Pat and Bill wanted things to be just right - which they were!

We had a one bedroom unit (room 12) for one night prior to our flight the next day and it was excellent. The room was spacious and furnished with high grade TV, fridge, furniture etc.It would have been absolutely perfect except that the mattress was way too soft for our liking. Very quiet, in a good location close to the airport but not too close. Shuttle service to the airport next day was pretty much on request and worked perfectly.

Given its proximity to the airport, we stayed at Airport Palms on arrival in Christchurch and on Riccarton Road on our departure (to be closer to the train station). As would be expected, Airport Palms was considerably quieter. The studio we were allocated met all expectations, being of a decent size, clean, comfortable and well equipped. As such, we had no complaints whatsoever.

Room Tip: We enjoyed being tucked away in an upstairs room, but that isn't to say that the ground floor ro...

Got here late, but keys out of after hours box, room was modern and clean. Lady in the morning was friendly and nice. Room had a nice big TV, had ice in the fridge and the shower had good water pressure, hard to complain about anything, as the motel is off the main road there is little street noise
