The place is classic 1950/60's motel. Either retro or old fashioned, depending on your point of view. The staff are excellent and the pick-up was good, even at 1AM. Rooms large with lounge and kitchenette. There is no restaurant and the pre-ordered breakfast did not sound appealing, however there is a great cafe 400 yds away.

Would never stay again. Way overpriced, the shuttle driver that picked me up was questionable in his driving skills and spoke not a word until he told me how much to pay for my room. Shower wasn't the greatest, have seen Mir technically advanced showers in hostels. Morning staff was not very helpful either. Should have stayed at the airport...

The two bedroom apartment is huge with fantastic facilities such as a full kitchen, great comfortable beds and a spa bath. The grounds are lovely with a children's play area. However we were in room one which is right near the car park and people arrive all night and their headlights shine right through the bedroom windows. They need to...

location was close to the airport, however a delayed flight meant we missed out free shuttle, which overall then having to pay for the airport shuttle meant the overall price wasn't great, but this was not the Lodge's fault & they were happy for us to check out a little later due to our late arrival. An older place, however...

We stayed here on arrival In Christchurch and our room was clean and comfortable but a little dated. On returning after 3 weeks, we had booked the smallest room in the complex, still clean and with a kitchenette but it would have suited a single person much better than a couple as it was quite confined but okay for 1...

Place is at average may be. Only reason for existing is proximity to airport. There is nothing else, except residential area (which is ok for a "last walk" in NZ before heading off. Two and a half restaurants at 10-15min walk, that's it. WIfi works only "half", ok for PC but were not able to connect iPads and Apple machine....

We had stayed here a few years ago and knew it was older and dated, Didn't worry us. We are a family of 4 so having 2 bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and large bathroom was wonderful. The full size oven was great - I cooked part of the Christmas dinner in it. I wouldn't use this motel if I was...

As a family of two adults and two kids we found the facilities (notably the childrens playground) well suited. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. In contrast the room servicing was very hit and miss and seldom matched the description in their booklet. When the service followed the advertised process (beds made, recycling removed) the staff went beyond...

We booked the hotel from the airport kiosk, which says "free airport shuttles." But today when we inquired about the free airport shuttle they told us it is too expensive for them to keep running shuttles so we had to call a taxi!! Considering we booked the hotel for the free airport shuttle this was very unsatisfactory. Also, LIMITED HOT...

When we arrived we were assigned a room with electrical problems. Within a short time it was determined we'd have to move. The replacement room was much better - more spacious and better appointed. The one issue that remained unresolved during our entire stay was the internet access. In short, it just didn't work. When we finally went to the...
