Slick experience, perfect for the business traveller. This time I had a large apartment with separate kitchen, living and bedrooms. Shame as I arrived at 2am and had to leave early morning so didn't really get to enjoy it. 1660

We stayed here for one night following a late flight. The shuttle service was great & very efficient especially given the lateness of our arrival. Only downside was the new $10 fee that was implemented for this service after we booked so that was a bit of a surprise. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a newly refurbished room....

stayed here on two occasions in the last week. Both times very comfortable, has free wi fi. Mini bar prices are not cheap especially the wine. Meals are ok. Bit of a walk to centre of town, probably either taxi or bus. Bus link to this motel is very good. good position for airport. Shuttle between airport does cost and...

Wonderful customer service, amazing room and bathroom. It must've been newly renovated. Really good size and a lot of space. Lovely little mini bar but did not touch as it was a little pricey. But overall 10/10

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the accommodation - larger than I needed, but those traveling should be aware that this hotel has two-bedroom suites. Everything was clean and comfortable; the staff were friendly; and the airport shuttle was efficient and right on time. It's quite a distance from the city centre, but perfect for late night arrival...

We were fortunate to be upgraded to a newly refurbished suite for our one night stay. Having pre-ordered sausage and mash dinner, this was brought straight up to our room - delicious! Our room was fabulous and the bed very comfortable. Atrocious weather outside but we were cosy. Breakfast the next day was excellent. Cannot fault this motel and highly...

I booked this hotel for its location, shuttle, restaurant and the fact it had a 3 bedroom apartment available. All were useful although take note that the shuttle is no longer free. This is a motel rather than a hotel. Although there are around 60 rooms it has a tiny lounge and check in area. There's a handy children's play...

Room was clean, spacious & had a well-equipped kitchenette. Airport pick-up service was convenient for late night arrival at Christchurch. Restaurant/coffee shop was an added bonus. This motel exceed our expectations for facilities and service.

Very good location for both the airport and easy access with a frequent bus service into town centre. Good staff and good accommodation. The cooking facilities were better than expected and the room was larger than expected. Can be used for both accessing the airport and a tourist visit tomorrow Christchurch. Easy too find and drive too as well.

Thank Colin B
