We totally understand how comfy airports are to sleep in – the calming bright lights, the plush floors and the lullaby-like loudspeaker announcements that go on and on. Not! And that’s why we’ve dedicated this page to Christchurch Airport hotels – so you can actually get some beauty sleep! You deserve to start, or end, your New Zealand
holiday on a great note, so check out our range of hotels near Christchurch Airport. We promise the beds are super comfy!
While a few of our hotels are a short walk away from the terminal, they’re all within easy reach with a zippy cab ride up the road. Some hotels even offer a free shuttle straight to their door. While some are perched along the main road into the Christchurch CBD, Memorial Avenue, others sit on quieter streets just around the corner from the airport. Offering a variety of bonuses like Wi-Fi, 24-hour room service, continental breakfast, a pool or restaurant – as well as all the usual hotel mod-cons – whatever floats your boat, we’ve got it.
If you’ve got time for more than just a sleep, a meal and a shower to freshen up, take a quick trip into the city centre to get a real taste of Christchurch
. At just 10km away, that shouldn’t be too hard to manage! A city that’s in the midst of redefining itself, it’s constantly in a state of flux, which is fascinating for travellers because you never know what to expect. You’ll totally love the cool and creative spaces popping up all over the city, the new bars and cafes that are constantly adding more life to the CBD, and the fun-filled community projects in the streets. Be sure to check out the Cardboard Cathedral, a world-first design made mostly of cardboard – and a real, operating Anglican church. Also don’t miss the funky Re:START Mall, the city’s new shopping quarter creatively fashioned from colourful shipping containers. Another must-do that’s an oldie but a goodie, is to go punting along the peaceful and lush Avon River. To get more info on this evolving city, drop by the Visitor Info Centre in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens – another traditional local sight to add to your list.
