“nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

Had just one night here at the beginning of our south island trip. We rang for shuttle from airport and the bus was very prompt and with a friendly driver, the trip was only 1-2mins and we probably could have walked as the hotel was so close . We found the hotel to be very clean with modern and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the bar where the bartender was very helpful with our selections. We ate in the restaurant, we found the service to be friendly and helpful, although our food took a long time to come out. It was a lovely meal, the akaroa salmon was delicious! Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a hotel near the airport.

The staff were friendly, the room was basic.
Nothing to write home about.
In saying that the room was clean, but there was simply nothing special about the whole experience.
I stayed there simply because i had an early flight and i needed a room above my head, i wouldn't stay there again unless i was in the same situation.
But then again, it's just your typical airport hotel- you don't really expect too much.
Good transport transfers though- they're running all the time, every 5 minutes which means little waiting around.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is a a little tired and old, but serviceable. My double bed was actually made up of two single beds pushed together on wheels, which made for a terrible nights sleep as the beds moved apart all night and had a huge dip in the middle. Very disappointing.
Location is great for the airport, and not much else. If you have an early flight then this is a good choice.

Stayed here for one night prior to early morning flight. Ideal location for this and the shuttle bus was ready for us at 4 am with helpful driver. Had read one or two negative reviews before our visit but we found everything very efficient - easy check-in done very professionally by trainee;restaurant served good value and tasty food and room (on ground floor) was fairly large. Obviously ,as with all airport hotels ,there was some noise in corriders but not overly so.

This would have to be my 4th stay in this motel. Why? simple, its so close to the airport. As long as you make arrangements with the motel for a shuttle bus it doesn't matter what time your plane arrives or departs.The staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast is great. Rooms are a little outdated but comfortable and clean. I would stay here again.

We had stayed here 18 months ago and had found it to be very pleasant, helpful staff, well-located and in good order. Also well-priced and extremely convenient for early morning flights. This time (and on thinking about it, it may be related to the earthquake resulting in lack of maintenance personnel and greater demaind for accommodation) the room was twice the price and in need of quite a makeover - tatty chairs, very tired looking. Still an ok place, convenient, clean, pleasant, but overall expensive.

The outside of this hotel is not that appealing, but the staff were helpful, room quite large with everything needed, restaurant was good value and served excellent food. The arrangements for getting us to the airport via the shuttle bus at 4.30am in the morning worked well, even though you could not book and a number of people were doing the same thing.

The location of this hotel is excellent, less than 10 mins from the airport. The day before our flight, we decided to leave the luggage at the hotel, drop off the rental car at the airport, walk back to the International Antartic Centre where we spent the afternoon and which is right next to the hotel, and is a MUST to do. Then the following morning use the shuttle bus.

We would definitely use this hotel again, but be aware that you can be woken up by people going out early in the morning to the airport.

Room Tip: Ask about which room will be quietest.
