As the name suggests this is a motel not a hotel hence facilities associated with a hotel like lobby, restaurant, room service etc. are not there. We had taken a room on split levels with upper level having the bed, almirah and TV and the lower level had bathroom and drawing room with full kitchenette, TV and Music System with... More

Hello Raj S. To be honest, your review is somewhat disappointing because it looks like you have allowed the rank you gave us to be influenced by factors that do not directly relate to you staying at this motel. We do heartily welcome reviews as long as they are about us! You are right about one thing – we are... More

A really good motel with eveything you'll need. Quiet, easy walk to the centre, easy drive to the airport. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. The room was on two storeys, which wasn't ideal but didn't spoil it for us. The owners were brilliant!

Thanks for the review kwg76 - most pleasing to hear you enjoyed everything about your stay with us. Thanks for ticking off the main points you loved in your review!

We stayed at Centerpoint for a short stay in Christchurch before starting out our South New Zealand adventure. The hosts were very welcoming and let us know what there say to do and eat in the area. The room was clean and comfortable. Christchurch is still rebuilding from the quake, but things are getting better. When we left, our hosts... More

Hello David K and thanks for the review! Great to see that we could get that pillow back to you - we do try to get things back to guests when they get left behind. Wonderful to see you found us a great option to start your South Island adventure. See you next time you are in Christchurch. More

The staff were fantastic. We arrived at 2am in the morning (bloody Jetstar) and they organised a late arrival for us. Upon arrival we had a lovely note from them complete with cookies (which were greatly welcomed after our travels). The room was actually two stories which was great. It's quite basic but it's very cosy and comfortable which is... More

This Motel is a fine choice in Christchurch, within easy walking distance to everything in the CBD, everything spotless. The owners are very helpful, good restaurant recommendations, and good advice overall. I forgot my laptop charger in the room and they called and texted me immediately so that I was able to go back and get it. Unfortunately there really... More

We stayed for one night and got a free upgrade to a deluxe room. We received a lot of good tips where to explore the city and also a very useful selfmade-map. The room was very big, clean and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. The whirlepool-bath was a dream after one month on the road. We booked an airport-transfer... More

I stayed at CentrePoint on Colombo for 6 nights while in Christchurch on business. The motel was ideally located for my purposes, just a short walk from the city centre. Central Christchurch is still largely a demolition site as the city recovers post-quake, however there are some excellent cafes amidst the slowly returning central-city life. It is fascinating to see... More

Chose CentrePoint on Colombo for our business trip accommodation based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Wasn't disappointed. The rooms are spacious, warm, comfy and a welcome retreat at the end of our business day. Owners very helpful and friendly. Will defnitely stay again if travelling to Christchurch for business or pleasure.

My husband and I stayed one night on September 20th. We found the motel to be in a convenient location, an easy walk to central Christchurch. The motel was clean and comfortable but its furnishings were a little dated. I would try a newer hotel next time.
