We had the opportunity to stay at the Airport Gateway when we arrived in New Zealand. Our flight had been delayed out of Sydney, and when we arrived at 1am in the morning, they were at the airport to pick us up as soon as we called them. The room was excellent. In the morning when I asked to go back to the airport to get the rental car shuttle, they insisted on taking me to the rental car facility instead. We liked the motor lodge so much, we booked it for our last night before we left NZ. The staff at check-in both times was very friendly and efficient. The only downside to this facility was the restaurant. I can't comment on the food, because we didn't get to order any. We went into the restaurant to have breakfast, the waitress had a very sour expression upon our walking in. After a few minutes, she walked up to the table and tossed the menus on the table and walked away. As this point we got up and went somewhere where they wanted our business.
The restaurant aside, the Airport Gateway Motor Lodge is an excellent choice in Christchurch for the value and convenience by the Airport.
