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.

We particularly enjoyed our apartment and room at Airport Palms Motel for one night. Front Desk accepted to pick-up our luggage in the morning before check-in at the end of afternoon. The cleanliness, the high-quality bedding and great equipment were very appreciated. The breakfast was exceptional served in each room. The staff was very welcoming, warm and always helpful. In addition, we particularly appreciated the proximity of Christchurch Airport (less than 15 minutes away with the Motel's free shuttle). The Lady driving the shuttle was so kind. The price was reasonable. In conclusion, we highly recommend "Airport Palms Motel" very welcoming.

Located conveniently close but not too close to the airport. Cheap and easy transport to the CBD on public transport. Very comfortable. Immaculately clean. Excellent facilities and appliances. Incredibly attentive hosts. We will stay there again.

Brilliant and accommodating. Room was great - friendly reception - comfy bed - lovely and clean. Perfect when arriving on a late night flight as its closeby. We have stayed here several times, and easy late night access, and late departure. Totally recommend.

Wonderful hospitality, good location and a lovely room. Change my request for a room and it was dealt with immediately. Pick up service was offered but not needed this time. Would definitely use again in the future and a great option for anyone who needs accommodation close to the airport

This motel is perfect.. clean and well equipped. And was really quiet. We got an upgrade to a spa bath unit which was lovely. The free laundry was a real added bonus and caught up on all my washing. Keep up the good work guys you are doing a great job. Would definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting a nice place to stay.

My family stayed in a three bedroom suite in Dec. Everything was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The rate for three bedrooms was very affordable and the transfer from the airport to hotel was seamless. Would stay again!
