This motel is excellent. From the sunny and informative welcome, through to the room and the location, I couldn't fault it. Our room had two comfortable arm chairs which is quite uncommon in motels, and a kitchenette, which we didn't use but would have been handy if we were staying longer. The light in the room came from a high... More

This is a great place to stay. Close to cafes and restaurants and a short walk to the CBD. The owners are friendly and helpful. They offer maps and a list of eating options. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We didn't hear any noise when we were there. Parking on site and Internet available.

We have enjoyed our stays. The motel is a 15"minute walk to the center of town and the Botanic gardens. Many restaurants within a 3 to 20 minute walk. Jeff has a map with 70 some restaurants listed. The rooms were very clean , comfortable, and big. There were even wine glasses for our mini wine taste under the canopy.

It was exactly the same 3 years ago when we stayed there too. Jeff and Naomi and exceptional hosts and very helpful and welcoming. Each room has a very efficient... More

I can't fault the welcome I received at this motel. It was very good. The actual room was tidy, neat and clean. Having been in 10+ motels now in New Zealand and able to compare them, in my opinion it is need of an upgrade to reach a 5* status. Nothing wrong with it, just needs some updating. The motel...

We enjoyed staying at this very clean, comfortable motel. It is within walking distance of the centre of Christchurch. We stayed at the beginning of our holiday and went back for the last night before flying home. After having travelled all over the South island we realised it sure would be nice to get back to that motel with all... More

Having read all the rave reviews about this Motel on Tripadvisor UK we decided to book this Motel with Expedia.co.uk for the last three nights of our 5 week driving tour through both North and South Islands.

Your review can only be described as one of the more disturbing ones we have ever received. We’ve had rave reviews….. and some not so rave reviews, pretty much all based on rational thought patterns, until your review. Many of your comments about the motel and rooms etc. fly in the face of just about every other review we’ve ever... More

Jeff at CentrePoint on Colombo is a man who takes special pride in his work, helping travellers settle in , giving tourist tips regarding the sites, and where to go for a dinner out.

This motel was recommended to us by friends from Ottawa, Canada who stayed there for a night in Nov (or Dec?) 2015 when they did a whirlwind tour of NZ.

Great location of accommodation a short walk to the cathedral. We stayed for one night prior to leaving NZ, Jeff gave us a run down of what to see in our short time in Christchurch and organised a taxi for us the next morning. Rooms simple and clean. Would recommend.
