The bed was so comfortable and one of the best we slept in during our stay in NZ. Staff were extremely helpful and communication prior to our stay was done swiftly and courteously. Very happy...

This is a nice place to stay if you are flying out of Christchurch. The rooms are clean and neat, they are set up with a small kitchen with microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and a small fridge. The staff are very helpful. They have a free shuttle to the airport.

I stayed overnight at the Airways Motel when I had an early flight out of Christchurch. The host was very friendly and welcoming, and booked me a taxi for the next morning, which was a fixed price pre-negotiated with the taxi firm, and therefore cheaper than a normal fare. I had dropped off a rental car at Apex Rentals, and... More
