We had an enjoyable 2 nights there, had a very early flight out so it was very handy. Helpful staff, clean, good facilities in the room. Not far from the city and good restaurants. Comfortable bed, good shower. Would stay again for sure.

Last minute booking turned out to be the best hotel experience ever! The owner was going away for a weeks break and couldn't have been more helpful up to the minutes he left, and the couple looking after his motel, couldn't have bend over backwards more for us..... Recommending, booking, organising our evening..... Finishing off our washing.... Friendly, awesome managers...

I have stayed in this motel many times, and I have always been impressed with the quality of the facilities and the friendliness of all of the staff. There are many motels in Christchurch, and there are probably lots of friendly staff in those motels. The Airport Palms doesn't do anything unusual. They just do all the stuff you would...

I was very impressed with this Motel considering the trauma that Christchurch has experienced post earthquakes. The room was immaculate with very comfortable bed and furniture, nice toiletries and all the amenities that one would expect. Managers were unobtrusive but very helpful. Room was warm and cozy with electric blankets which were very welcome and not often found in motels...

This is a pleasant clean comfortable motel of about four star quality. It is on a side street from Memorial Highway, fairly near the airport (not walking distance) and in a quiet area. Good hosts. It is certainly not Christchurch 's No.1 hotel. It is not a hotel. It does not aim to be the equal of the superlatively brilliant...

A lovely motel with friendly staff. Rooms clean, spacious and well equipped. We had an excellent 2 bedroom suite. This is a quiet suburban location really convenient for the airport so do no expect spectacular views.

We booked here to stay for one night after our flight was scheduled to arrive shortly after midnight. The reception was aware of this and they have an easy to follow procedure for finding the key. We found everything we needed in the generously proportioned room; even a newspaper! In the morning they were only too happy to give us...

Great room and big bathroom and spar bath. We had a big bedroom with TV and the kids had the twin bed room across the hall. Close to the airport and a local shopping centre. We were there over Easter and our hosts made sure we could find an open restaurant.
