I didnt like the strong smell of urine in the unit. We thought it will go during the day, leaving the windows open, but during the night, the smell was overpowering. This morning i asked to be move to another unit.( my room has been booked for 2 weeks due to repairs to my house), nothing was done. I asked...

Used this motel prior to leaving Christchurch for Oz. The room was large clean and well equipped. There are restaurants within walking distance and some shops if you need them. Early morning taxi arranged by staff which was prompt and good value for money at 4am. Would use this again for overnight stop.

we stayed overnight after a flight into christchurch. We booked at the last minute before boarding our flight from Australia, knowing we would get in after midnight and have to leave early the next morning. The motel was cheap so we didn't expect much, but when we got there we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very clean and spacious,...

This motel is convenient, especially when arriving late at the airport - the shuttle bus will pick up until 2.00 a.m. The rooms are dated, but if arriving late and leaving the next morning - who cares! The gentleman in the office (presume the manager or owner) drove us back to the airport office of Britz the next morning, even...

We had one night here before getting to the airport for an early morning flight. Everything was functional, but for the price ($136) I would have expected a little more. It was clean enough and the bed was fine. One major downside is the lack of eating outlets close by. There are no shops within reasonable walking distance. Would stay...

We arrived at this motel late in the afternoon and only had an hour before we needed to be at a function we were going to, hence the reason we didn't notice first off the bad things of this motel. It is easier if I list each room separately. Kitchen: When I took two coffee mugs from the cupboard one...

Utilitarian budget hotel right next to the Christchurch airport. The highlight of this hotel is the owner, Wayne, who will go out of his way to meet your needs. He is friendly and very accommodating. Basic rooms but they are the perfect for a simple stay close to the airport.

We had a positive experience at the motel. Despite our flight delay, the shuttle van came promptly close to 2 am to pick us up. They also provided breakfast at affordable price, delivered to your room. When we had trouble getting our rental vehicle in the morning, the owner let us check out at 12:30pm without charging us any extra...

We wee obliged to pick a motel in the vicinity of Christchurch airport due to very early and very late flights. Judging by the price of airport motels I imagine many people have the same requirement! Not at all cheap for what it is ($140 a night) this motel runs a shuttle to and from the airport for free, which...
