What Our Customers Say

Our new "Go To" Motel for Christchurch

We loved the room we had at Airport Palms Motel, it was close to lots of different eateries, and the complimentary shuttle service to the airport was a real bonus. Our room was exceptionally clean and well appointed, and the managers were friendly and helpful, we will stay again!

Great service and motel

Graham and Sharlene bent over backwards for us to pick me up from Maui after dropping our camper an off. 2 bedroom apartment was great and we were promptly taken to the airport at our requested time in the morning. Great friendly service all round, highly recommended.

Simply awesome!

This motel was up there with the best we have ever stayed in. The two big items for us, good comfy bed and good strong pressure shower, big ticka on both! And lovely friendly service too. Will be back for sure thank you so much 😀
