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.

I'm sure some of you who have travelled more than us will have experienced these thing before but for us it was new and heartbreaking. Where we stayed was in the 'tourist' area although not exactly the Gold Coast. There was plenty of shopping (cashmere scarves, yak wool blankets and every second store sold trekking ...
... carriage window so I gave up on photos knowing we were returning later that day. Difficult to convey the awesome scenery, the amazing river and gorge let alone the feats of engineering to construct the bridges and tunnels. Suffice to say I could agree with it being one of the best train journeys in the world and I didn't resort to reading a book or playing games on the ipad! What was also great was the audio commentary which gave a thorough and informative talk on ...
The weather in Mount Cook was dreadful as we left and started to improve about the same place as it had deteriorated the day before. As we passed below Lake Pukaki we passed over another section of the Canal between Lakes Pukaki and Tekapo. Then passed another canal between Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki, the system of waterways that support the hydroelectric power generation is amazing. We drove through a few nice towns and across the longest bridge in ...
