Comfy room, great service!
My wife and I started our New Zealand vacation together at Airport Palms after flying into Christchurch. We were picked up by Bill at the airport with our luggage. He was super friendly and helpful with getting us checked in. Pat was kind in directing us to the proper location for pickup over the phone. Our room was comfortable and a good size. The kitchenette has everything we needed—plenty of cups, dishes, and utensils. The bed was comfortable and the location was quiet. We were exhausted from our 31 hours of travel so we picked up some Thai food from a nearby restaurant that Pat directed us to and ate at a table outside our room. The weather was gorgeous! The next day Bill was kind enough to drop us off at the Britz camper van rental center by the airport so we didn’t have to wait at the airport for another shuttle. Very nice of him to do so! Wonderful service and stay! We would definitely stay at Airport Palms again given the opportunity!
