We flew for 21 hours with two layovers totaling 12 hours. By the time we got to the Palms Motel at 11 o'clock at night all we wanted was any shower and any bed. Boy, were we delighted and surprised by what we got for not that a high price! Very spacious suites/rooms (we were two couples), absolutely comfortable bed,...

Stayed 1 night during th eweek and it was quiet. Just the usual airport ins and outs at weird times. Office closes 9PM, which can be a pain for business travellers performing presentations and the like, but key lock box works. However, BF needs to be booked and can be placed in room earlier if required. Not much around and...

My husband and I stayed at the Airport Palms motel and was very impressed with the room. It was neat and tidy, the bed was quite comfortable. There was plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate and milk, most places do not provide enough milk. Great location to the airport as we had to be at the airport by 4am...

Standard size room with extra large bathroom and amazing shower. Very clean and well equipped - there was even 2 bottles of milk in the fridge. Lady (and dog) in reception were welcoming and helpful. A great place to stay when you arrive with jetlag - close to theairport but quiet.

This is a comfortable and very clean motel a short taxi ride from the airport. The woman at reception was friendly and very helpful and a stop on the bus route to the city is just a few yards up the road. We were not expecting such good accommodation. Our room was spacious with a big walk-in shower. No air-con...

Once again we started at the Airport Palms after an early morning arrival. The short drive from the airport is easy and the key was waiting for us in the lock box so we got into our usual Room three easily. The rooms are quite large and well equipped plus they are clean and quiet. Riccarton Mall is reasonably close...

We booked this place after reading such good reviews and the reviews were certainly accurate. We were only here for 1 night in transit. Bill is such a lovely man. He collected us from the airport and offered a late check out the next morning as we weren't returning to the airport until lunchtime. He also took us to the...

Great motel in prime location close to the Airport and a handy drive to the city. Staff were friendly and obliging - nothing was too much trouble - even when I paid using AMEX! Organising a FREE morning shuttle to the airport was easy. The unit itself was totally spotless and comfortable - thoroughly deserving of a top rating. And...

We had a 2 night stay here recently and it was very good, easy to find, easy to park, clean and comfortable. Pat and Bill were very friendly and seem to take great pride in their business. We particularly liked the provision of fresh milk in our fridge on arrival and the good selection of teas and coffees. Although we...

The bathroom was well equiped and there were also good soap, shampoo ... In the kitchinette there was coffee. In front of the motel ( number 49) you can have...
