Stayed here for 2 nights, central location with a short walk into town. All the usual facilities and the staff helpful and friendly. Having said that it was the smallest room we have had on our travels with the dearest price!

After road tripping the South Island in our camper for a couple of weeks our last stop before flying home was an overnight stay in Christchurch. Having only a day to explore as our flight pick up the next morning was at 3.30am our main priority was to get nice, comfortable accommodation close to the city centre. CentrePoint on Colombo...

It was a comfortable room, with a very good decor.The motel is also central and within easy walking distance from some very good restaurants and the things we wished to see. The owners were helpful. We would stay there again

This motel would be the best one that we as a family have stayed in when visiting Christchurch and we have stayed in a large number. The 2 bedroom unit we had a two bathroom, which at times is a great thing. This unit was well appointed with everything you could want for a stay of one night or more... More

We enjoyed our stay Christchurch so much and being at the Centre Point was half of it! Jeff, the owner, was amazing. He was knowlegeable about the city and all the restuarants. He was very accomodating to make us on the spot reservations and call us cabs! The rooms were great and perfectly clean and comfortable! We walked or caught... More

Visited Christchurch for 3 nights during our trip and it was a highlight. I think it is important to help the tourist industry and city during a difficult time by visiting. This is a resilient little city and they have been through a lot and have come a long way. For us, walking around the CBD, visiting the sites and... More

I stayed here for two nights one week ago. I was very happy with my spacious, warm unit. Everything was clean and comfortable. The owner Jeff was very obliging both before I visited and when I was there. I rang him several times prior to my visit and he helped me with lots of information about transport and facilities in...

Stayed 2 nights here in June. Very nice room, lots of attention to detail. Kitchenette had a microwave but no stove top. Very comfortable bed and nice reclining chairs. First hotel I've been to that asks one to separate organic waste along with recycling. Standard bathtub had spa jets.

Yes, we are a little Motel, but we have a big heart! Thanks for the review ajrowe0615. That's right about the kitchen and we like to emphasize that the rooms do not have stove tops, just microwaves. Here in Christchurch we have organic rubbish collection once a week so we offer our guests the chance to join us in separating... More

A full service motel with Host's that make you feel like Family! Jeff and Naomi were always there to help, give tips and directions! We arrived in the middle of the night and they had the key in the pre-arranged secure location. The refrigerator and microwave in the room was so convenient. And FREE Wifi! Thanks for a great stay...

Hi there LVFire and thanks for the review and for comin' back to stay with us again! Many stay with us for a couple of nights after flying in from distant lands - it does help with the jet lag and getting you ready for your Kiwi experience.

Great location near Chch central while also being near restaurants, cafes and other amenities. Room was great, very clean and tidy and with a lovely heat-pump which was critical in the middle of winter! Great onsite parking and very friendly and welcoming hosts. Free wifi I'll definitely stay here again.

Hello natsnaps and thanks for the review after visiting from Auckland. Yes, it has been cold but not as cold as some areas in the South Island recently but still, its been cold - but our heatpumps have been doing their job of keeping the rooms warm!
