If you are after a very clean and comfortable stay then this your place. Having stayed at a similar motel on arrival this place was a god send. The Managers are very freindly and very accommodating. John even rescued my good shirt from the camper van company. I have nothing bad to say at all about this establishment. Well done...

Lovely clean comfy motel but what made my stay a five rating was the AMAZING service. The owners took time and trouble to make my time in christchurch as smooth and pleasant as posdible. I feIt like such a valued guest it made this motel a stand out. I would definitely stay again :)

We stayed 1 night after an arrival into Christchurch airport and were very pleased. We were picked up from the airport, after a wait of about 5 minutes, with a friendly welcome and we were soon in our very clean and comfortable room. This included a small kitchen area with filter and instant coffee, and fresh milk waiting for us...

I've stayed several times for 2 nights at a time for the last 4 months. Lovely welcoming owners. Very clean and comfortable. Great continental breakfast. Easy access to the airport with a shuttle van. If you are a regular stay they clearly get to know you.

If you need to fly out of Christchurch stay here! Especially if you need to leave your car behind. The rooms are comfortable and the bed and bedding are superb. The location is extremely convenient to the airport. Further, they offer a park and fly service that is quite competitively priced. The managers are great too. If I could give...

Great hotel with super friendly staff and a top shuttle service. I'd highly recommend this hotel as a top option for a 'close to the airport' hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, wifi is free and quite fast.

After the flight over the Pacific I knew I’d be dead tired when I arrived in Christchurch, so I wanted a hotel close to the airport. The Airport Palms fit the bill perfectly--it’s just a five-minute drive from the rental car lot at CHC. And I was very happy with my choice. The unit was huge, with a nice kitchen...

Just note, travellers. There is no shuttle bus to or from the airport 2.1kms away outside the time 7am to 5pm. If you have to catch a plane which departs before 8.30am, this shuttle is not for you. You can get a taxi for $17 currently, if booked by the motel. The motel makes this quite clear so I am...
