Fair 4.0
Very unhappy with room
Reception was good on arrival . Room cramped ,dated,sparse. Doubt if bunk bed sheets had been changed. Queen bed okay, furniture well used & stained. One coat hanger on 6 inch rod on wall to hang clothes.. definitely not worth the cost.

On the beach!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Airport Motel before picking up my family the following morning. The motel's location gave me a great opportunity for a long walk around the bays to Seatoun. Along with great service and plenty of restaurants in the area, the Airport Motel has my full recommendation.
John, nz1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Not suitable for more than a one night stay
Skylight in the room made it hot and too light to sleep. Smell from the airport made it unpleasant to open the windows. Noise of other guests coming and going at all hours. No cupboards or anywhere to place luggage. Parking spaces are very tight.

Good 6.0
Okay for an overnight stop after late arrival
A very small , even cramped room, nowhere for a suitcase, no desk, cupboard or chair (two stools). Spa bath quite difficult to get in and out of when used for a shower. But was only overnighting after late arrival at airport so served its purpose.
DAVID J, nz1 night trip
Good 6.0
The room was nice but was stuffy as it felt very hot. Spa bath was really nice but there is no fan to take away the condensation as you could see mold up by the ceiling. Reception service was nice and friendly
