“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We recently stayed in the Boutique Suite. Very well appointed, clean, modern and comfortable. There was absolutely no noise considering the room was alongside a busy road. would highly recommend these rooms.

Room Tip: Boutique suite excellent.

We booked at this hotel (which came under another the name of Airport Gateway Motorlodge) based on all the wonderful reviews we read and the website which showed clean, modern rooms. Unfortunately the room we were given had not been updated in decades, was far from modern and lacked on the cleanliness. We were told there were updated rooms in a different part of the motel but none available at the time for a family of 4. The management and staff were professional and did not hold us to our booking. Given the price we were paying, I had expected quality accommodation. So buyers beware, when booking ensure you will be allocated one of their lovely updated rooms we had read about.

Room Tip: Request update room

6 adults, our last night in South Island with an early flight the next day. What a great place to stay for or purposes. It was comfortable, modern with contemporary fittings, clean and ideally located for the airport, with transfers available. No need to go out as the restaurant and bar were very good.

Room Tip: we had a deluxe studio and it was excellent, if you have an early flight try and get a downstairs ro...

I was upgraded to a boutique suite on arrival and I was very impressed. The facilities were very comfortable, well equipped and luxurious. The reception staff were extremely helpful and courteous, providing a free transfer to the airport at short notice.

As we arrived late at night it was very convenient being picked up by their shuttle from the airport and we didn't have to wait long. We just stayed one night in their budget room but it was a pleasant experience. Clean, tidy and comfy bed. However the bathroom was a bit dated and the shower head was set very low in the wall which isn't great for anyone over 5 foot tall.
