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.

Very much looking forward to going back.

He may have started a trend and 20 Chinese people have gone home proudly showing off their snaps of the "Knobs Flat" sign.
As part of our tour we did some kayaking in Milford Sound. Fortunately the 2 other people with us were atrocious which made us ...
... beautiful ocean drive with very little development. In hindsight, we should have simply freedom camped along this coast instead of ending up at our somewhat crowded campsite that we had booked way in advance.. In fact most of the proper camp-sites were very populated with locals taking their annual Christmas break.. Highlight in Kaikoura was an afternoon on a Maori cultural tour. Morris took us to an old village (a Pa) where he ...
... like my self, but being the happiest I've ever been in my own skin.
Here a few things that I've learnt about New Zealand over the last couple of months:
1. The Maori language is not pronounced how it looks at all and can often sound like swear words.
2. To make things more confusing than Australia on the money front, the lowest value coin they have is 10 cents.
3. There is no such thing as a straight road in New Zealand, it may be ...
