We made Centrepoint our first night and last night stop on a loop trip around the South Island, and it was perfect! Lovely room, great host, and very fast internet. Easy to walk to the center of the city from there, and close to the airport. By the time we returned from our two weeks around the island, it felt... More

Stayed a couple weeks ago for one night at the beginning of a South Island trip. Jeff the owner was friendly and accommodating and provided a helpful map (not just your typical free map full of ads) with names and operating times of local services (restaurants, breakfast spots, supermarkets, etc), and pointed out things we might need or want to...

Conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants and city attractions. Room was spacious and furnished with sufficient resting and eating area. Internet connection was sufficient for normal usage. Kitchen was fully equipped for breakfast and simple meals. Toilet was roomy with hot and strong shower which was important after a day's outdoor activities. Parking lot was a bit tight and... More

We stayed at CentrePoint twice in the past 2 weeks and we were most impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the service offered by Jeff the owner. We would definitely recommend this location in Christchurch

We stayed here the first two nights in New Zealand. We had read the reviews and were not disappointed at all. The only difficulty we had was getting to the hotel from the airport as the roads were being dug up and diversions were in place. This hotel is close enough to Victoria Street where you have loads of choice... More

There are not any "roads dug up" nor "road diversions" between here and the airport. There are still some in the city centre beyond us here at the motel but none between here and the airport..... Not sure how you ended up in this situation - only thing I can think of, and I think you mentioned it, was that... More

The motel was well-located, an easy walk from all the main parts of town. Especially appreciated was the map showing restaurants available after the earthquake which Jeff and Naomi put together. this is just one part of their helpfulness - they were always willing to answer questions and provide useful information. The room was appropriate for our needs, and well-stocked... More

Stayed in the mini studio with spa room which was small but suited me fine as I was travelling alone. Room was very clean, comfortable and we'll accessorised. Especially liked the outdoor covered veranda area next to my room where I enjoyed a relaxing wine and pizza. The bed was comfortable, firm and hence I had a good nights sleep.... More

The rooms were pleasantly more than I expected. Fully stocked kitchenettes in neat cupboards, and plenty of space to sit or work. Very livable. And very close to Victoria street which seems to have quite a bit more going on than New Regent street. Jeff and Naomi are easy to work with and are very willing to give advice for... More

Great accomodation. We booked a studio through the website and were given a 2-store apartment for free ! The room was large, clean, with a king-size bed and all facilities (clean towels, WiFi access, free cookies !). The motel is close to the city center (take-away restaurants or dairies are not far away). When you arrive, you receive a lot... More

The lovely owner could not have been more accommodating! Provided great insight to the surrounds of Christchurch, organised a hotel to airport transfer & bags to our room, plus provided cookies & mints before bed. Cheap WiFi also available for unlimited use 24 hours & centrally located. Despite being in the city it was quiet and had a cute courtyard... More
