We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this motel. A big bedroom/lounge room, quite well equipped kitchenette , very efficient shower, private outdoor furniture just outside our room overlooking the garden. Very nicely appointed. Only about 5 minutes drive from the airport ( we didn't ask the owner to take us there, as our flight was 6am, so...

We stayed at the Aarburg Motel while we were in Christchurch for a wedding and were more than happy with our stay. The owner picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport free of charge (a friend who had got a taxi payed $22 one way). We stayed in room 5 and were pleasantly surprised at how...

This is a lovely Motel close to the Airport with great friendly service and affordable rates. They went out of their way to make sure they could swap rooms to make sure there was a room for 2 nights and was able to organize a shuttle to the Airport for very early Sunday morning.. Lovely clean self contained unit with...

We found ourselves belatedly needing accommodation near the airport when there was very little availability anywhere. The Aarburgh was dated and basic but sufficed for somewhere to sleep and have a shower. Back window was neither curtained nor had frosting which was a bit weird (we taped up a plastic sheet to cover it) and some if the rooms seemed...

Older motel that could use some renovations in the bathroom. Very small bathroom with very small shower and mirror. It was clean and the bed was comfortable and the key was left for our late arrival so it met our needs. Price was fair for what we got.

My main issue with this motel was the extremely poor and aggressive attitude of the owners. After a four hour drive you do not want to be arguing over what you have already agreed in writing via email and they were not at all interested and basically told me 'I don't care what we wrote in the email i am...

Accommodation was clean and tidy. All you would expect in a motel is there. Fairly peasant location, quiet side street. Folk who ran it were very helpful and fair. The reason I say this is that I made a mistake with the booking and without going into detail we arrived a day early. I had to wake the owner at...

I have to admit to driving past this place while checking out two other establishments we've stayed at previously...the big aeroplane picture out front caught my eye so I was trying to decipher if that was in reference to the airport being close, which it is and in fact easy walking distance (approx. 2 km) if you have minimal baggage...

Hotel was close to the airport which was the reason for booking. The "room" was fine, good size although the kitchen was rather dated as was the bathroom. The cabinetry looked like it came from the 60's! Regardless the kitchen was well equipped which was great. We had room #1 which was right near the road, but the traffic wasn't...
