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.

For the cruise ships to enter the harbour they need it to be a minimum of 10 metres, where they park these massive ships is just 13 metres deep, so not much clearance room! We spent 2 hours on the water, we spotted heaps more dolphins and penguins, a couple of seals too, and looked into some caves before heading back to ...
... had a good giggle about it though. Bryan is not going to let her live that one down!
Karen finally got to drop us off around 1:30am before heading home.
Not for long though, she was meeting us again the next day in Christchurch town centre so we would get to spend the whole day with her.
We took a bus into the centre and .......Oh......My......Goodness!
We could not believe what we saw. It is now almost 4 years ...
... just too busy having fun in NZ! After a couple of hours on the free wifi we had come up with a plan and booked our accommodation for the next two weeks. We haven't up until now booked places to stay so far in advance, but with it being high season and not having loads of choices of accommodation that wouldn't break the bank we thought it would be safer to do so. A short flight later we landed in Auckland and so came full circle in our trip of NZ. We ...
