This is a bit of a time capsule- the decor, bedding, carpet etc could be updated with some extra touches to make it much nicer. Fly/security screens and ac would be good. It is functional and pretty quiet. Being close to the Uni it has...More

I booked 1 night here as it was close to the airport, and relatively decently priced, since all we needed was a safe place to sleep before heading to the airport early in the morning.

LisaM, Search back and find my review of the motel from Jan16. You'll see that I too arrived on a JetStar flight at around the same time and did not get to the motel until 01.00. I'll be doing the same this coming week - another flight to ChCh - and the motel has arrangements for you to collect the key when you arrive. They also left the lights on in our room - so we could see where we were going. Some good plus points for management. It is, of course, essential that you make this kind of arrangement - by informing them of what you are doing, time of arrival and more. Enjoy your time in Godzone then. All good things.
