“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed 17 May 2008

We booked this motel via Wotif.com as we were flying out of ChCh the next morning. Its about 2 mins from the airport, and as with most airport motels the location is nothing special. The motel is quite new and family run and the service is good. The rooms (ours was an upper studio) were a real surprise being spacious and nicely appointed. You also get cooking facilities (cooktop and microwave) which is very handy as there aren't alot of dining options other than takeaway nearby.

Reviewed 21 November 2007

We stayed at the Airport Delta for one night in September as our family was leaving for Australia the following day. The motel offers an airport shuttle service and is only about 3 mins from the airport so it is fantastic for those early morning / late night flights. We stayed in an upstairs room which is around $5 cheaper than a downstairs room to compensate for inconvenience of having to cart your luggage upstairs (no problem for us though!!). The rooms are fully equipped with self catering facilities. Our family was in a 2-bed apartment and that even had an oven so we were really able to cook up a family feast. I did notice that the 2-bed apartment had more wear and tear than our own room but i guess that is to be expected as it would be used mainly by families and perhaps used more often than just the standard rooms. The rooms are all in neutral decor, we had a luxurious king sized bed which really made for a good night's sleep. ALthough it is close to the airport, you do not hear any noise from it. We have also stayed at the neighbouring property which is pretty well a mirror image of this one and equally as nice. The owners of both properties are very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this property.

  • Liked — Close proximity to airport, shuttle service and car-leave service.
  • Disliked — It's all good!!

Yes, our family units are certainly subjected to more wear and tear than our studios. For this reason we ensure that they are well maintained, regularly painted and steam cleaned. Our aim is for every guest to our motel to feel as though they could be the first.
