This delightful motel looked after us beautifully after an evening dash to Christchurch from Dunedin, for flights. We arrived to a neat clean room. A 5 minute drive to the airport, we will be back. Kitchen facilities include kettle microwave and crockery. Free WiFi and TV, heater available, and the right price.

The hotel was clean and the beds were very comfortable. It was nice to have an outdoor area to eat our lunch. The host Lyn was very helpful with any questions we had regarding recommending places to eat. Lyn also arranged our taxi to collect us in the morning to take us to the airport.

Our stay could not have gone any better. The room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. My wife and I stayed in one room and my father stayed in another, we were all very impressed.

This hotel is ideal if you have an early flight. It is a long way from the CBD and there isn't anything else much around it, so you will need to find your meals elsewhere, but the staff are friendly and will help arrange taxis for you.

We stayed only for a short time, arrived at 1.30 AM, thought just to have somewhere to stay not too far from the airport and not expensive. Turned out the place is really good, clean, comfortable and got all we needed. Definitely going back!

Nice place to spend your first night at after arriving at CHC Airport. Lady at the reception was super nice and welcoming. Gave us lots of tips and Voucher as well as wide range of brochures. Rooms were bright and adequate. Shower a bit old. Beds quite soft but comfy. Reasons for 4 and not 5 stars: - Have to... More
