Easy checkin. Picked for proximity to where I was working. Friendly staff, clean room, large compared to "nicer" properties I have stayed at. No it is not a new place, so the rooms are biiger, the furnishing dated, but it was clean and quiet - and I was street fronting. Would definitely book here again

After our flight was delayed from Sydney we rang up (at 9pm NZD time) on the chance to see if there was any available accommodation as our other option fell through. The man at the desk was very friendly and helpful, sorted us a room at last minute and even picked us up from the airport at 2.30 in the...

This motel is very close to the airport although not near any shops. Courtesy shuttle arrived promptly when called. Unit was very clean with a comfortable bed and thick, fluffy bathroom towels. Very pleasant and helpful staff.

this is an older motel. Could do with decent net curtains - it appeared they had skimped on the fabric - but the main drapes were good. I like that the units have a full oven, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Beds comfortable, lighting and power points a-plenty. There was a playground for children including a trampoline. Lots of trees...

This hotel is conveniently situated to Christchurch airport. It is our second visit and we found it very clean, comfortable and warm. We had a two bedroomed apartment which was spacious with plenty of room for 3 or 4 adults. We were flying to Dunedin the next morning and the bonus was that there was a free shuttle service to...

Arrived off a late flight just needing a nights accommodation. Picked this one off a booking site. Arrived to be given a room straight out of the sixties! Tired decor, chipped furniture, clean enough. As we arrived after midnight I asked for a late checkout and was charged NZ$25 for ONE extra hour. Ripoff. Found out after there is much...

Pick from Christchurch airport was a little confusing - more due to the airport layout than the motel-but once aboard the motel's own shuttle it was wonderful. Checked in by VERY helpful staff (Kay). Unit was spacious clean and lthough the decore perhaps was a bit dated very comfortable. Stayed here about three years ago and will do so again...

We had to make an unexpected trip back to Christchurch for a night - and wanted to save $$ The Airport Lodge came up on various ratings as pretty good for a low price. It was much better than pretty good! It is in need of some updating but it was very spacious comfortable with separate and roomy lounge, kitchen,...

Booked the hotel for a single night before heading on from Chch Airport, motel offers free shuttle to airport but when we arrived and tried to book said free shuttle we were informed that there wasn't one on New Year's Eve - why? I could understand if we wanted a lift to the airport late at night on New Year's...

Free shuttle bus, pleasant staff, The room was a bit dated as was the shower over bath system. The beds weren't the most comfortable. Free WiFi worked fine. TV reception was good. Courtesy shuttle back to airport the next morning to pick up rental car was an added bonus.
