I booked this motel online because I wanted something close to the Airport since we were arriving after midnight. The Motel shuttle was waiting for us when we cleared customs (about 12.30am) which was lovely as we were very tired. The room could do with some updating but was clean and comfortable and good value. The motel staff were very nice. We only stayed one night but I would recommend this motel as a budget place to stay near Christchurch Airport.

The water was so blue I'm sure it would have been even more beautiful on a summer day! Sam found ...
... and found an Italian restaurant. It aiso was full of happy hour snackers and imbibers. We apparently discovered the
heart of the after work bar scene in Christchurch.
We ordered another pizza which we have discovered is the universal food found around the world. Eating out in NZ is very expensive and pizza proved to be a fairly reliable item we could split and afford. We headed north two blocks braving cold winds to the Ibis to ready for tomorrow’s journey.
