Airport Palms had all we wanted for a one night stopover in Christchurch. Spotlessly clean, we used the free shuttle both ways to the airport and were allowed into our room early afternoon. There's a good bus service into the city with a stop near by. It took 20 minutes to walk to the supermarket at Avonhead, this is also on a bus route from motel. Altogether a good experience, friendly helpful staff, we would stay again.
