We recently had the privalge of staying at the Airport Palms Motel. It is an excellent place to stay. The hosts are very accommodating. Our stay was for only one night just wish it could have been longer.

The biggest thing that I was impressed with was the laundry facilities that are provided at no extra charge. Only one washer and dryer, but they even provide you with the washing powder. The rooms were nice and clean, and unlimited internet a bonus too. Biggest downfall was no aircon/heat pump (although there was a wall radiator). This would have...

We stayed one night after arriving late from the airport. Motel very easy to get to from the airport [we had a car], late key service worked easily, rooms were of a very high standard, bed comfortable, everything just like it should be for a guest. We couldn't fault the place.

From the moment we checked in, we couldn't fault this lovely place. Reception were incredibly helpful, organising our early morning transfer to the airport, and generally making us feel relaxed. The room was clean, comfortable and just what we needed on our last night in New Zealand.

Very well organized motel. Our room was nice with enough space, good bed, very clean, little kitchen, quick WiFi, modern style and very friendly staff. It was a nice arrival, even at midnight, we received a code to entry and this was working well. It was also very nice that we could leave our bagage on the departure day, so...

We were on our way to Nelson and stopped here to get a good nights sleep and they did not disappoint. Free shuttle pickup from the airport and a short 10 minute drive to location. Very clean rooms with sky tv and a nice dairy and a Japanese restaurant nearby. Also had really fast wifi, which was great for us...

We stayed this last week for two nights prior to our bike trip of five days, then one night after, before journeying back home to Australia. Was great to be picked up by Bill from the airport on our arrival, then shepherded back there to catch a plane yesterday afternoon. The rooms were lovely, both clean and spacious, especially our...
