Clean, tidy room. Friendly and helpful hosts. Let down by no air conditioning in room. Had a stand fan which blew hot air around. Room was extremely hot and couldnt sleep due to that. Very tired and washed out the next day. Wont stay again during summer.

Hi Shaga001
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you found your room clean and enjoyed our friendly hospitality. We are sorry that you found your room too hot for you during your stay. We have had a couple of exceptionally hot days this week - up around 29 degrees and agree that on the few days a year that we have these high tempaeratures, it would be great to have air conditioning. We look forward to seeing you again and if you visit during our cooler days we can promise you a lovely warm cosy room.

Cannot rate Graham and Sharlene high enough.
Our room was so comfortable, they looked after me so well taking me to and from all my laser eye treatment appointments as well as providing excellent recommendations for places to eat.

Thanks for making our stay so easy and relaxing.

I stayed at the airport palms motel for 2 nights and can highly recommend. The staff were great. Very helpful and friendly. I left my ph charger behind in my room and they called me within an hour of leaving and had it in the post that afternoon. I received it the next day. Very handy to the airport and in a nice area. They also offer free airport transfers. Room was spotless. Would definitely visit again.

Thank you for the lovely review Karen. Our staff are very proud of how this motel looks and it shows. We are very lucky to have these housekeepers.
I'm pleased you were able to take advantage of our airport shuttle. We get alot of guests finding this service very convenient.
We look forward to seeing you again when you return to Christchurch in the future.
