Hello, I would advise that there is an excellent bus service from the airport to and from Sumner, which travels through the city centre. Costs for full fare to Sumner is around $5 while the ride to and from town is approx. $3. A taxi/shuttle fare could be $70 - $100, but I would suggest you google Christchurch Shuttles for fares.

"They are all good but if I had to choose I would say one further from the road"
"Check studio apartments as ours had parking both sides and so might be noisy (although it wasn't for us)"
"The split level rooms have a good layout"
"back area as very quiet"
"All the rooms are good with balconies"
