Great centrally-located motel with very welcoming hosts. Geoff went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed and gave helpful tips on local eateries. Room was large with well appointed kitchenette, en suite bathroom, desk & chair, free wifi, armchairs and big comfy bed. The TV had a good range of channels including sport. Best of all... More

Great location only a short walk from many of the good restaurants. The service was second to none with many suggestions to good eat locations prepared for you. The rooms were comfortable and the heating worked maybe a little too well.

Great place to stay very close to the CBD without being right in the thick of it. Jeff and his family are very friendly and can offer great advice, and it's nice to stay somewhere and support a family business. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a nice, warm place to stay.

Really had a great experience here. The hosts are super friendly and I felt really well taken care of. They go the extra mile to be helpful, I am a big fan of great customer service. Good location, clean and comfortable. We stayed 6 nights and would recommend to anyone visiting the city.

Nice motel, clean and friendly. Centrally located, within easy walk to the CBD. Geoff and Naomi spared no effort to make our stay comfortable. Geoff prepared a map of surrounding facilities that he updates regularly as more businesses re-open after the devastating earthquake. I will sure stay there again.

Excellent location. A short walk into hard hit Christchurch center. Extremely helpful hosts. They helped with directions and any questions. Rooms have everything. Various pillows, heated towel racks, room safe, flashlights, 50 + channels, milk, laundry room, complete kitchens. I stayed 3 nights and was quite comfortable.

This is my second stay at the CentrePoint On Colombo Motel (first was 2010) and I am happy to report that my stay was as good as my first stay. Usually the second stay has high expectations that are seldom met - not in this case. Everything about this motel is five star - the friendliness - the quality -... More

The motel was clean and well-cared for, and nicely laid out. I found my room very quiet, warm and comfortable, exactly as advertised. The owners were all absolutely lovely and very helpful in both furnishing me with maps and information about local shops/restaurants. Very pleasant to talk to and extremely helpful. The internet allowance is very generous, and worked perfectly... More

We choose this motel on the trip advisor because of its high rating.We were put in a room for the disabled.We found this very depressing and the decor was very dull.The unit was geared for energy saving which I thought compromised any kind of luxury.We stayed in various motels on our travels around the South Island and this one we...

I have never been more flabbergasted by a reviewer’s comments. Does someone referring to a room as being “for the disabled” and then linking this directly with being “very depressing” show that even though disabled people are fully accepted as a valuable part of our society, there are still people who just don’t get it? I have no further comment. More
