    Good design, well appointed, spotless.

    A bit pricey.

  • Family with children

    Lovely place to stay. So clean and new! We on had one night there as we were on a south island tour but would certainly stay again and recommend to friends. Beds were very comfortable. Lovely place! We will be back

  • Group of friends

  • Older travelers

    Everything !A fabulous hotel and one I would use again and again and recommend to others. Very Comfortable. Warm, Central and so clean!


  • Group of friends

    Cleanliness and lovely landlord

  • Couple

    Very good motel! One year old and everything is still new. Very friendly staff. Rooms are big. You pay more but get more!

  • Older travelers

    I stayed at Airport Palms Motel for stopover purpose. When I was considering accommodation at Christchurch close to airport, I understood that this motel is closed to airport and provide free airport shuttle. However, the day before I arrived and informed the motel that we would be arriving at 11pm, then I was told that the shuttle finished at 8 pm, so we had to spend $25 dollars taxi fare to get there. I wished I had known that. The hotel manager was not happy to help us to get the key to get into our room when we got there, understandably it was very late. However, in the morning when we departed, the service was good and we got free shuttle to the airport. Depends on situation next time when we come to Christchurch, we probably will not come back to this motel again. Cheers!

    We stayed at Airport Palms for one night, both on our way through Christchurch, and our way back out (we only had one night there each way en route to Queenstown). We absolutely loved this motel - it was so modern, clean, quiet, the service was fantastic and just so easy. It was everything we needed and more, even though we were only in transit. I actually preferred this motel, as opposed to the Novotel Hotel in Queenstown where we paid much more. Staff were so friendly and helpful, and everything just went so smoothly - which is exactly what you want when you are travelling!

    Nothing I didn't like about it. Obviously, I wouldn't have chosen to stay here if we weren't simply spending a night close to the airport, as the location isn't fantastic. But for our purposes, it was absolutely perfect.

  • Older travelers

    It's very closed to the airport, about 5 minutes driving. New, tidy, clear.

    Only easy cooking is permitted. But this is not in the description of the apartment.

  • Older travelers

    Location, fast free wifi, large room.

  • Single

    Very business-like staff, quiet residential neighborhood.

    I had a 6am flight and thought they were next to the airport, so I was willing to pay 30% extra vs another hotel I stayed in 4 days prior (I had taken a 4-day tour to Milford Sound, Franz Josef Glacier, etc in the meantime). As it turned out, I still had to book my own taxi at 4:30am -- my fault for not making sure.... Also, the digital clock was not working, and I had to arrange with the desk for an automated alarm/call.

  • Family with children

    every thing best motel i have had the pleasure to stay at and i have used hundreds over the years


  • Group of friends

    Convenient to Christchurch Airport as we were only overnighting there to catch early flight

  • Family with children

    Nice tidy room pleasant staff handy for airport

    Cost to much money . Stayed at Novotel, Wellington for £20 less per night . Novotel also included a exellent breakfast for 4 people this made Novotel much better value for money . So next time would try to get Novotel in Christchurch if possible. If I added 4 breakfasts to a,p, hotel it becomes very expensive for an overnight stop over. So sorry in my opinion cannot recommend it we stayed in nz for 17 days & this cost the most but others were far better value

  • Older travelers

    Everything. Lovely 1 bed apartment, good facilities, nice big bathroom, quality cosmetics supplied; great towels. very clean and nicely appointed. Double glazing meant peace and quiet.......

    There was nothing to dislike
