Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Off street parking, spa and pool area. Our room was big but unfortunately after a queen and single beds, 2 seater lounge and table and chairs it’s was rather a tight squeeze. Perhaps the seater should go. Bar fridge, cook top, reverse air conditioner. Nice sliding doors to a outside area, shared with the other units and on a road but still lovely. Great guest laundry. The shower was a ceiling mounted unit always never as effective as a wall mounted spray head. Not sure what eateries are around within walking distance. The staff were absolutely lovely. Shuttle to and from the airport. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed just one night and had to be on an early flight the following morning.its a great location- very close to the airport and near many other accommodation providers. What we liked was the friendly service and also a well appointed room which included enough cooking facilities in case you were going to stay a night or two. Our hosts even came and collected us from the airport the day we checked in, as we had dropped our vehicle rental off. The hosts at this motel were so obliging, helpful and friendly that they left us with a wonderful impression of what New Zealanders are all about. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated without being OTT. It’s a simple affair but a good experience on the whole.

Stayed here for the night when we arrived at 1am. The staff are great and were helpful from our first phone call when booking to organising the early morning arrival and even dropping us off in their shuttle at Maui campers the next day. The rooms are very clean, modern and comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Convenient for airport, reasonable price for standard OK room, helpful staff. Best thing for us was the capped price (NZ$16.50) on a taxi to the airport at 04.00hrs. No worries about being ripped off. They also collected us from the car hire return depot the evening before, for free. Would definitely use it again.

Ok accommodations near the airport but nothing special. What was disappointing was their lack of service. We notified them we would be arriving late so they left a key and told us that their shuttle to/from the airport only ran from 9am to 9pm. We were ok with that but when we asked for a ride back to the airport at 9:30 am the next morning they said the airport run was done. They insisted that the fine print required that the airport ride needed to be pre booked and we were out of luck and had to pay again for a taxi. Thought that was really poor poor service indeed.

This motel is very convenient if you need to stay near the airport. It's one of the cheapest options also. I wouldn't stay here again however as I found the rooms in need of a thorough clean and the air conditioning/heater smelt of stale cigarettes when switched on.

We had booked here on two nights, at the beginning and end of a trip to Australia. But I ended up cancelling the return night because I was so unimpressed with the service. When we arrived to stay the first night, which I'd booked through Booking.com which has a 48 hour no-refund policy, I found I'd accidentally booked on the wrong night - the day after we were to stay. So I asked if I could transfer the booking to the right night, and was happy to pay extra since the same room wasn't available. But I got a flat refusal - the following night had been booked and paid for, so I had to make a whole new booking. I asked if they would discount the room rate for the correct night - and they offered to drop it by $30, which was still more expensive than the original booking. Given that we were not going to stay the following night and the motel could therefore re-sell that night, I thought this was very poor customer service. Of course the original mistake was mine, but the motel was completely unwilling even to go half way. Better customer relations needed here.

We tried to find out where the keys etc would be left due to late arrival. I sent an email 2 days before that did not get answered. ( i would have expected that they would have sent details as our arrival time was stipulated on the booking) This then involved a phone call and it felt like I should have known. We arrived late and the keys and heater were left on. Next morning when we went o shower there was only one sachet of shampoo and no soap! On booking out I mentioned this and the answer was "I will check all the rooms myself today". As we had 2 other night in Christchurch later in our trip the Aarburg did not get considered
