We were arriving late afternoon to leave at 4:00 AM next morning for international flight. Lots of luggage and NO space to park our car close to the room. 3 % Charges for credit card payments. Restaurant food: ordinary and restricted menu. General review: dated room for the charges applied. Positive: proximity to the Airport and shuttle bus service.

Extremely close to the airport, with prompt shuttle service. We stayed twice, and the basic room (studio) was clean, quiet, nicely furnished, with a full kitchenette. Very good bargain for the price. The bar is nice and reasonable priced. The staff was very helpful when we encountered trouble with our airline. About 20 minutes from downtown by car.

Well equipped, comfortable, clean and modern room. Free shuttle to airport was great. Staff are friendly and happy to respond to requests promptly. Quite a distance from any main shops was the only downside for us but a good airport hotel

Rooms were very clean and staff were super helpful and friendly. We flew in at 130am and it was the perfect spot to stop and sleep before heading to Mt Hutt the next day. Rooms were warm and had everything we needed and breakfast was tasty as well.

Arrived late at night and the Lodge pick-up bus was at the airport within 10 minutes of us calling them. Rooms were lovely and warm when we arrived as the heaters had been turned on for us (which we really, really appreciated). Helped us with our bags and the staff were very, very helpful. Good value for the room and...

We had a refurbished studio, which was very well appointed with kitchenette if we needed to cook. The shower had great pressure after the other places we had stayed at. Unit was very quiet. Excellent pick up and drop off (left car also) to the airport. We had the same driver both times who was very cheerful despite the time...
