Stayed one night before flying out of Christchurch. Very convenient location. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Free laundry service was very nice to allow us to wash our clothes before leaving.

We enjoyed our one night stay in the Airport Palms Motel before our flight - very comfy family room. After we left I realised I'd left a gore-tex jacket hanging in the wardrobe. The relief manager Sharlene went to significant effort to post it back to us in Australia. Thank you so much, Sharlene!

Great Motel, with very friendly stuff. Very clean bedrooms and restroom. Easy parking spot available for every room. Super close to the Christchurch Airport. The motel offer complimentary Airport transportation. The gentleman was very nice sending us to the APEX rental car office, instead of the airport. Which saved us time to get APEX people pick us up from airport...

1 night stay arriving on a late flight. No issues with check-in late and having a late checkout the next morning. Room itself was nothing outstanding but very clean and had all we required for 1 night stay.

Very friendly hosts, comfortable beds and nice and clean bathrooms. A fast pick-up from the airport and a drop-off at the rental place the next morning were no problem. A nice and complete breakfast was also available.

This motel was perfect. We've never experienced that before. There's always been something to detract from a great place, no matter how minor. Of course, not finding anything wrong, we looked harder :) Still perfect. Thank you to managers Sharlene and Graham for the great hospitality!

Great people/owners - helpful & friendly. Clean room & tasteful decor with great facilities/amenities - nice 'extras' as in real coffee for the percolater!! Fast unlimited wifi made teenagers very happy! Free airport shuttle service was helpful & they stored our car at a cheap rate for us while we were away. Will definitely recommend!!
