Disabled studio unit, with a good, spacious bathroom with even the mirror at a lower height for me. Small lip to get in the sliding door. Clean and comfortable. Well-insulated, cosy unit. Friendly welcome.

Hello again and thanks for coming to stay and for the conversation around the disability unit that you stayed in. Was good to get the opinion and thoughts of the versatility of the room from someone who requires such a room. It was good to know that considering there are many versions of disability room designs around the country that ours passed muster!

Thanks for coming to stay and yes, we are more than happy for a well behaved feline or 2 to share the room. We do this after full consultation with the potential guest but on second visits like this one all you get is a very warm "welcome back!" Ah yes, it wasn't the warmest then but yes, the heaters work well. See you next time!

Jeff was great. Very accommodating. Even though we had an after hours check in Jeff still contacted us to check on our arrangements for the next day. Was happy to drop us off to our camper. Just a shame we didn't get to stay longer

Airways Motel was a perfect stop for our family. Conveniently situated close to the airport and with complimentary pick up we stayed here on our arrival to Christchurch. It was comfortable enough for our family of 4 that we booked a further 2 nights at the end of the trip, taking in the attractions that were close by and easily accessible by bus. The room was clean, tidy and well appointed
