The room heater surface is too hot. we traveled with toddler. It was not a kids friendly room. The location is really close to airport. They have free pickup service which is awesome. The hotel have a small park in front of it. Personal backyard is really refreshing.

Arrived on a Friday night. Had to wait as staff where picking up guests from airport. Room was clean but very dated. It was also cold the heater struggled to keep up. Part of this was all the windows where open at 7pm on a wet cold night. Probably give it a miss next time

Close to airport convenient if you are catching a plane especially an early flight. Overall OK for the money. Friendly staff as well as a very friendly cat. Recommend Gusto local restaurant if you are looking for a meal. Very tasty.

This motel was probably the cleanest I have ever been in. A little bit retro but sparkling clean in every aspect. Staff very friendly & obliging and the bonus was they kept our vehicle safely there for a 5 day duration at no extra cost, while we holidayed overseas. Would certainly stay there again

Arrived at 12:30 am (why are NZ flights such awful arrival and departure times?) Paid a very reasonable price for 5 people so did not expect a 5 star property. It was quite comfortable, although dated. We were leaving quite early the next morning to collect our motor home for a jaunt around the South Island, so this was really... More

We were happy with the accommodation for a one night stay before a very early flight. The location was relatively quiet being so close to the airport. The rooms were neat and tidy upon arrival and we were given plenty of milk for tea/coffee. The manager was very helpful, friendly and booked us a taxi for the morning. There were... More

A wonderful place for a rest and early fly out the next day. Friendly hosts, clean and quiet rooms, comfortable beds and a great location just four or five minutes from the airport. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for one night passing though Christchurch with a small family. Was great for the one night, close the the airport, free shuttle was a bonus. I was pleasantly surprised of the size of the unit - we had a separate kitchen/lounge/bedroom in unit 10 which was awesome. Rooms are dated but very clean and tidy. The main issue... More

We have stayed here a few times in the past as it is close to the airport and offers free pick up. We thought the room was a little tired looking and probably could do with refurbishing, so therefore slightly expensive for what you get. It has also changed hands since our last visit. The service was great, only had... More

This was the first motel that I stayed at during my trip to New Zealand. My family and I arrived at Christchurch airport at 9pm and as soon as we called the motel, they immediately sent out a transport to pick us up at the airport. 5 minutes later we checked in to the unit which was already warm and...
