We stayed at this Motel for one night, being in transit. Very conveniently located to the airport and town centre. The host gave a tip when driving to the airport in our rental car which proved invaluable. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Go for apartment 1

We are pleased to hear that you found us, 'off the main road' and with 'quiet rooms'. I noticed that you placed a traveller tip suggesting room 1. Room 1 is one of my favourites for natural light and access to the garden. Interestingly, some guest are afraid that they will experience road noise in this unit but as you will have experienced, Roydvale Avenue is very quiet in the evenings. Thank you for writing the review and we look forward to welcoming you again.

We chose the Airport Delta Motel because our plane was arriving after midnight. We let the owners know, and they gave us a code to access our key after hours. It went smoothly, and the room was wonderful--comfortable bed, perfect bathroom (we need a walk-in shower, and their's was great), and a lovely patio area open to a charming garden. Two city buses stop just in front of the hotel, and make it an easy trip to the downtown CBD of Christchurch, museum and Botanical Gardens. Downtown Christchurch is still so devastated from the earthquake of 2010 that there is no reason to stay downtown, and the Airport Delta was so convenient and the staff so friendly that we were happy we'd made our reservations there. The bus ride downtown (~20 minutes) gave us an overall picture of the "real people" of Christchurch.

It's always nice when we receive reviews from a Trip Advisor Senior Reviewer - particularly when it is such a positive one. I am pleased that our walk-in showers suited you. We always receive great feedback on our water pressure and large showers. Yes, sadly our city was tragically damaged and our guests are always surprised at how devastated that it truly is. If you come back however you will see an amazing transformation. Yes, there is still a long way to go but Christchurch is such an exciting place to be right now.

I was pleasantly surprised when I found this place, It was very reasonably priced, clean, modern and only a short distance from Christchurch Airport - 5-10 mins by car, 35-40 mins if you walk.The host was very friendly and upgraded us. We stayed in Apartment 1. It had a kitchenette (not that we needed one as we were flying out early the next morning), But good to know that if you want to prepare a quick meal there is a stove top, a microwave and bar fridge and a decent select of pots/pans, crockery and cutlery which put many apartments I have stayed in to shame, There were garden views on both sides of the apartment and a patio with table and chairs. Inside there was a dining area, couch and a large comfy bed. Internet was free. There is a car park if you have car, but they do have a courtesy van if you need to be picked up/dropped off at the airport between certain hours. There is no restaurant on site but they do room service breakfasts.There are restaurants at nearby properties such as the Copthorne, Airport Gateway Motor Lodge and Sudima Christchurch Airport. The other thing I like about this property is that they don't make a credit card preauthorisation on your booking.Once you pay for your accommodation, that's it.

Will definitely stay here again.

Another fabulous review from a Trip Advisor Senior Contributor. I'm pleased that you enjoyed Room 1 - it is one of my favourites too - lots of natural light and access to the garden - perfect on a long summer evening. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review.

I'm pleasantly pleased & surprised by the airport delta motel. We arrived after a long journey (San Francisco to Auckland to Christchurch). They actually looked at my reservation comments asking if our room could be ready early. They were able to accommodate this even though the original room they had us in wasn't ready. I'm grateful for their consideration! They were quite kind to ask if we wanted a paper, milk for tea, etc. I was originally nervous about the room. I read that the place is clean but wasn't super impressed by the pictures. The reviews were right- the place was very clean. I loved the room in the upper floor king rooms- plenty of space, clean, decent beds. We slept very well. It was nice that the "freeways" were close for our journeys to surrounding areas. Thanks for a great stay!

Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased we were able to get a room ready for you after such a huge flight! I can understand why you were nervous based on the guest images of our motel. A previous guest has uploaded some images with their bags unpacked everywhere and the beds unmade with a note saying, 'sorry, we made the mess'. We have now uploaded a lot more of our own images to give you a true reflection of the rooms.

It was a good place for families to stay and really very convenient to go to the CHC airport.
I went with my parents and the motel was very clean, the hosts showed great hospitality and helpful.I thought we were very lucky to find Delta Motel, I'll recommend it to my friend if they travel to CHC.

What a great find. Run by a lovely family who were very friendly and helpful. The accomodation was very clean and family friendly. We were without a car but public transport was close at hand. We would definitely recommend the Airport Delta Motel and stay there again.

Very handy for both our car rental return and the airport, which is the prime reason we chose it. However, we also found it conveniently located for an afternoon drive into Christchurch (it's one straight road about 3kms long so it's hard to get lost!). Our room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped and the reception lady couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Good value all round.
