“Nice Stay”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Late checked in on 8th Dec and made a phone call to inform the receptionist. The office hour was until 9pm and we arrived around 10:30pm. The staff was willing to wait for us. Great stay and the room is clean and nice. The motel come with washing machine, dryer as well as free WIFI and new LCD TV!

Room Tip: Talk to the staff if you need extra bed. You may get a good deal.

We stayed at this motel for two nights. Our flight was at midnight, but they still came and picked us up from the airport, which was wonderful. Rooms lovely and clean, good to have a little kitchenette to save eating out all the time. It was only a quick taxi ride back to airport the next morning to pick up the hire car and visit the Antarctica Centre.
Cosy rooms with four adults, but all we needed was palace to sleep, relax at night, so great value for money.
Will stay again, location terrific

Stayed here for 1 night on monday 2nd dec 2013. We booked a family room as we had to drop friends off at the airport at 5am. However after going to bed and trying to get to sleep we realised there was a terribly loud noise coming from just above our room, a problem with the plumbing. The two girls in the bedroom could not get to sleep and when one of them called the after hours service she was told they didn't know what she talking about and there was nothing they could do! So to escape it and get to sleep they had to sleep on the floor in the lounge! After getting our friends to the airport we returned to the motel to check out and to ask for compensation for the terrible service only to be told they would "get back to us later today" and we havn't heard from them since. The room was also in dire need of a makeover and the shower was terrible. If you are looking for airport accomodation that has a good tidy room, good price and good customer service, look elsewhere

On arrival at Christchurch airport the service was good. Although I had emailed the my arrival time at time of booking I was told it was late when I rang to be picked up by the receptionist.

The driver was very polite and helpful on arrival.

Accomodation in Christchurch is expensive so I found this comparative for the service and room. The room smelt so clean which I was happy with.

Room Tip: Be prepared to bring your own soap and as I was a solo traveller, only 1 towel was provided.

We needed a place to stay in Christchurch to catch an early morning flight. This motel is very handy, and the shuttle service is very good. The rooms are budget, but very clean and comfortable. For a place to get some sleep before or after your international flight, this is ideal.

appalling PR - fortunately found out before I arrived, Had booked through Booking.com - got an email to Dear (nothing) - the third time, after I had gone through the effort of changing my credit card details with Booking.com and still receiving unsatisfactory emails (still to Dear (nothing)) from the motel is enough to put me off staying there.

Reviewed 19 October 2013

Needed to catch an early morning flight and chose this one because it has a free 24 hour shuttle service and we could leave the hire car here for the company to collect. Upstairs room near the busy road so a bit of noise but the glazing kept most of it out. Mirrors made unit look a bit more spacious than it was. Tiny TV. Wi-fi unlimited but kept disappearing so very frustrating. Microwave but no hob or pans or sink and minimal cooking equipment.

Some food options in 24 hour Caltex next door. Otherwise eating out here requires car or bus or use of one of the restaurant shuttles.
