Been staying for work this is the 3rd week and I would highly recommend this Motel, very upper class and a range of rooms very modern and well looked after. Very accomodating and offer a shuttle service as well.

We were thoroughly impressed with the ease of moving in and out of this Motel the night before going to the airport. There was a lot of room inside and outside the door. The layout and functionality of the Motel Room we stayed was awesome as well. Perfect Design. Thanks for a great stay.

Conveniently located close to the airport we arrived at midnight so had to take a taxi (NZ$23). Beds were extremely comfortable, wifi was fast, room was spacious and quiet. The next morning our host drove us directly to our hire car depot in the courtesy shuttle which was very much appreciated.

Called hotel for pickup on landing at Christchurch airport. Host Bill's fast-paced Kiwi accent was a difficult to follow as he gave instructions for proceeding to the pickup point. He retorted that I was speaking too fast, rather than slow down to help. Ended up waiting at a point slightly off, based on iSite instructions (whom Bill had referred us...

Hi Aunachalam V, Thank you very much for your feedback following your stay with us. We apologise for your initial experience you had with us but it is becoming increasingly frustrating for all concerned on your arrival to our Airport as they are very strict on us adhering to their ever changing rules on pickup points and also for us...

Awesome place to stay. So close to the airport for our very early morning flight. Bill was so nice to come and pick us up after dropping our car hire off. Rooms are beautifully presented and immaculately clean. Pat was so nice to change our room after wanting a down stairs room. No problems at all. Pity we only had...

We stayed at Airport Palm Motel on our last day in NZ. The room was clean, free laundry, free airport shuttle, what more. I forgot my newly purchase Lululemon pants and the staff arrange to courier back for me. Great place and staff!

Located near Christchurch airport, even offer free transfer. We stayed on the first night when arriving Christchurch and the night before returning home. This is a very clean hotel, modern facility, new, worth every penny. The laundry room is available free of charge, we wash and dry all clothes before boarding the plane home. Overall, it's very pleasant stay here...
