Airport Christchurch Luxury Motel & Apartments

Reviewed 17 October 2013

We enjoyed two weeks around NZ and Christchurch was our final stop. We picked this motel for two nights based on Tripadvisor reviews and, while the overall experience was not totally disappointing, it certainly had the worst "cost/quality" ratio among all the places we stayed during our holidays.

Talking about specifics:
- The additional bed we requested for the kid was a folding portable one with a very thin mattress...not what we were expecting.
- The carpet was not visibly dirty, but not clean either...our baby crawled for five minutes and her clothes became brown inmmediately; also looking for her dummy, we found a "Coronita" cap under the bed (was not ours).

Wouldn´t say it´s a very familiy friendly place. Other than that, room had enough space for all us (4), modern TV, 300 Mb free Internet more than enough to keep updated, high and low tables with chairs, heating worked really well/quick, kitchen and bathroon quite good and equipped.

Maybe if stayed at this place without the kids our opinion would be different, but that´s how we feel about it.

Service: friendly, helpful and professional.
Rooms: clean, comfortable and well appointed.
We used two adjoining ground level studio units for our party of 5 adults & the outdoor table setting, plates and cutlery in the Garden unit allowed us all to enjoy our Pedro's House of Lamb take-out dinner with gusto!
Nice finale to our 16 day trip.
Ample parking and easy access to main roads in and out of Christchurch and a great position for that early morning dash to the airport make it a no-brainer really!!

Room Tip: We chose the ground level as we were travelling with our 87year old Mother.

Have stayed at this hotel 2 times before and it was good. Went to check in this time after having a confirmed booking from Australia and was told that sorry they had made a mistake and there was no availability anymore. This was after waiting 15 minutes for the receptionist to get off the phone. The manager was unapologetic and said he will sort something out just around the corner that is of equal standard. 10km away turned up at completely different 1970's fit out hotel that was $10 less but should have been half price. John, you deserve a bollocking for your attitude to customers. There should have been some sense of shame that it was your mistake.

Room Tip: Pre pay. He kept subsequent bookings for people who were coming in after hours. Obviously money is m...

Pulling up to the Airport Christchurch Luxury Motel, I did not expect much. It was the last day of our trip and I just wanted a bed. When we walked into the room, we were quite impressed. From the flatscreen to the towel warmer, the kitchenette to the detailed dining out options, the hotel fulfilled my every need. The shuttle from the airport was fast and the service was great. I would go back again and again.

Outstanding friendliness, cleanliness and the desire to please. There was no need for management/staff to take me to a funeral at their cost. My sincere thanks to all! I have no problem in recommending the Airport Luxury Motel - people really do count.

We stayed here in September 2012 and returned again this year. Everything is the same as our last stay and we were not disappointed. Lovely clean, neat and spacious rooms and very close to airport. Friendly and helpful staff with free shuttle airport service. Will definitely be back on our next visit to NZ.
