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.

... Pukaki, providing absolutely stunning views of Mount Cook and the surrounding mountain ranges. What was also extraordinary was just how blue the water was! We really have been spoilt by the scenery in NZ, and despite my love for it, the murkiness of Herne Bay seafront back home pales in insignificance. Our next stop was our final destination for the day; Lake Tekapo. Before arriving at our hostel, we took a quick stop outside the local church. It probably has the view EVER ...
... Next stop: Mt. Cook National Park. The drive into the National Park is magnificent, a 40-50km drive off the highway that has the most amazing views of the Mt. Cook mountain range standing behind the azure blue Lake Pukaki – who knows how many times Dan stopped the van to take photos! We arrived at Mt. Cook around mid-to-late afternoon, so did a quick walk to see the Tasman Glacier Valley before deciding to camp locally – it was either a 20km drive back down ...
... and to visit the Clay Cliffs just outside of town. We stopped at the hot tubs on the edge of town for a nosey and to pay our $5 entry fee to the Clay Cliffs. The girls managed to get the friendly staff at the front desk to fill their instant noodle cups with boiling water.
The drive to the cliffs is 12km from the hot tubs. (3km up the road then left, another 3km then left again and then another 3km and you guessed it left again. Follow the dirt road for ...
