Last minute booking for 4 nights.Heating and lights on when I arrived which was very welcoming. Comfortable,clean unit with every thing one needs. Serviced daily.Laundry facilities. Nothing was a problem and was an easy bus ride to the city. As a single woman on my own I felt safe.

We had flight delays and car issues. The staff were fantastic and helped us out beyond the call of duty. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them. The rooms may be small but the staffs hearts are huge!!

Clean but very small and in need of a bathroom update as felt like you were in a caravan. Ok for 1 night but would be very claustrophobic for anymore. Friendly staff. Convenient location. Easy to find from airport.

We stayed here with family for two nights on our transit to Invercargill and i must say it was a nice experience. However if youre travelling with elderly people, you might want to request ground floor rooms because the stairs to the second floor is quite narrow Otherwise its a good place. Not very luxurious yet worth the price!

It’s this thing about saving on costs of flying and, importantly, a friendly and comfortable motel close to the airport in which to stay. The Academy motel provides all those essential services for...

We spend our first and last nights here of our two week camper holiday. We arrived at 2 am in the morning and found the key where we were told it would be, the room nice and warm and fully equiped. Parking available. Nice quiet area close to all amenities

Overnight stay after a late flight in to Christchurch. Keys were left out for us and the room was prepared well for us with the heater on and lights left on. Staff the next morning were excellent and very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for breakfast at a good cafe 2 minutes away. Would definitely stay again.

This was an excellent choice for location near airport, Uni and shops. Unit very clean and warm and great value for money. Having plunger coffee to start the day was a big plus. Lovely staff made for an all over good vibe. Thanks.

Good value for money if not wanting to spend a lot on accommodation, bathroom was a bit tired tho and could do with a renovation, no allocated parking for your unit which would have been preferred, room well serviced daily

This motel is closer to the airport BUT there is no noise from the aircraft. We chose this motel as it was on the right side of the city to drive to the airport, and it was a straight drive there and the traffic was flowing very well. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and very clean, the bed was...
