“Good Hotel close to airport”
Reviewed 22 December 2010

We stayed 2 nights 10 days apart.All rooms were of good size with variable views,car park or trees.Bathrooms were good with over bath showers.The swimming pool area outside is subject to the start of some building work but no sign of contractors on site.
The bar and restaurant are fine and breakfast(choice of type and cost) is good.Evening meals are of a good standard.Not fine dining but better than most "airport" hotels.The hotel is about a mile out of the airport on one of the main roads into Christchurch.
The town has a pleasant central area and a series of restaurants adjoining the river.These seem to get busy quite earlyTraffic is not heavy by major UK town standards.
As an airport stopover this hotel was good.The staff are helpful and when their new public access computer system failed to work the printer to do an online check in they tried everything to help including letting us use the hotel system.There is a usage cost.
As far as we were concerned this provided the ideal starting and finishing stop on a tour of South Island

I wanted a hotel airport and this seemed to be best one available. All I can say is that it is much more than just a convenient location. It really is an excellent hotel that gets so many things right. I could have happily stayed here for a week during my trip. Very relaxing but also has the latest technology. The room layout was one of the best I have seen. The only thing missing was a good view but the sense of relaxation more than made up for that. The restaurant was also very good - best lamb from my whole NZ trip. Chirstchurch is not a huge city, so the hotel is convenient to the city centre. I should also point out that I did opt for the business package which I believe offers the best rooms.

I was warmly welcomed by reception even though it was past midnight. The hotel was very clean and well appointed. Great meals.

Stayed for 2 nights at then end of a two week trip around the south island. They could not do enough for us. free drink vouchers on check-in, the shuttle bus that will take you to the local mall, the antarctic centre the airport and these places will then call the hotel and they will come and get you to go back to hotel as well. Excellent staff = nothing was too much trouble. Well done

This is a good airport hotel but isn't really somewhere i would choose to stay unless i was taking a flight. The hotel is well located and the rooms comfortable. The food is not particularly good value but the portions are huge so you could probably get away with sharing a portion between two! We had requested a quiet room so were surprised to receive a room next to the building work going on on the terrace! However, the staff are very polite and friendly and the on demand shuttle service to the airport was excellent.

my fiance and I stayed at this property for 1 night last month. We booked this property as it was close to the airport/car rental facilities, and we were arriving around 10pm that night and heading out at 7pm the next morning. The purpose of this hotel was just to catch some zzzs, however it ended up being one of the most enjoyable and relaxing evenings on our trip!

Upon arrival, we were upgraded to one of their suites - which was GIGANTIC. It had a separate living/dining space from the bedroom, large bathroom with a spa tub and shower and dressing area. The room also came with a stocked kitchen area and complimentary bottle of wine.

Needless to say, it was amazing after a long day/flight to kick back in such a great room. The staff at the property was very polite/helpful (someone walked us to our room even after we said it wasn't necessary). The location is also great in location to the airport. We didn't have breakfast there in the morning, however the restaurant area was quite busy (as it was the bar area the night before).

Overall, a great stay! We weren't counting on much being close to an airport and labeled as an "airport hotel", and we were highly impressed. Would recommend this property for sure!

We stayed a total of 11 nights over two stays in October/November. We've been staying here since 1995 and wouldn't go anywhere else. The Busines Level rooms are well worth the extra cost. Cleanliness, friendliness and service are superb throughout. Beautifully kept award-winning grounds. So convenient for the airport and ring road, yet very quiet. And free bus tickets take you into the city.
