PROS ... Good reliable shuttle to airport Food delivery available to your room from local restaurants if you don't have a car Big room CONS Dirty, tatty furniture, old uncomfortable beds, poorly equipped room - everything very basic and generally poorly maintained. Overall very far below average but price does not reflect this.

This motel is the most dated I have been in, no toilet door, sticky floor, glad we were only there for a brief time. The upside was that it was very quiet, for an airport location. Photos on website looked much better than in reality.

We have stayed here numerous times as stopover to and back from overseas and the location to the airport is the key. They offer free parking service while we are away which is a good selling point. Our room was very comfortable and the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Our children always enjoy the playground at the...

Worst hotel experience of my life. Owner extremely rude and unfriendly - almost goes out of his way to be unhelpful. Rooms not clean nor heated. Appliances old and not working. Hotel feels and looks extremely dated. Location is not that convenient. I am somewhat amazed that this hotel is still running and charging the exorbitant prices they do. Under...

At night we turned up this Psycho - Bates Motel. No lights to locate the place. If it wasn't for my GPS, I would not have stopped there. It looked like a landfill site. Rooms were super cold, enough to give you hyperthermia. No heating in rooms, no duvets, just thin flimsy blankets, poor sheets. The manager, most annoying and...

Stayed here when we flew in at midnite and then were collecting our campervan at 9.30am the next day. We arrived to very wet weather in Christchurch. The airport collection van was effecient. We had a 1 bedroom room. Neat and tidy. Some fixings/furniture a bit dated, but for the price it was worth it. Travelling with a 10 month...

Average location not close to anything such as food or entertainment. Inexperience led me to think being near the airport on arrival and having a transfer was important when I arrived from Sydney but after visiting I realised a cheap bus service Metro No. 3, takes me from the airport straight into town where I could have spent my night/s....

Stayed one night before a very early flight returning from NZ holiday to Australia and I was pleasantly surprised. Huge TV with cable channels, comfy beds and a small kitchen. Staff were very helpful. Nice and close to the airport and was much better than trying to sleep in a departure lounge. I would highly recommend.

Stayed overnight after arriving in Christchurch around midnight. Free airport shuttle was great - no waiting. Check in was easy and quick. We were leaving early in the morning and staff organised a taxi for us. Our room was clean, had a large comfortable bedroom as well as a sitting room with a single bed and a kitchenette. We slept...

I think somewhere between average and very good, depending on your concerns. Mine was that it would be some sort of over-priced dive, given the nature of some reviews. However, I do think a lot of people are of the opinion the world should bow down before them and scatter rose petals upon their arrival, and tremble in their presence...
