Great place. We have never seen rooms that were more spotless. Will stay again in a heartbeat. Good location. Wonderful hosts who gave terrific advice. Very worthwhile value. Cost was very reasonable.

After 4 weeks visiting NZ with a campervan and sleeping in Holiday Parks, we took two relaxing days off in Christchuch. The location, the comfort and the service of Jeff an Naomi were excellent. Just what we were looking for.

This place has it all. Easy to get to: About 10 minutes from the airport or train station. Friendly: Our group was greeted by the owner Jeff who is full of New Zealand/Christchurch information. He made sure we were all comfortable, gave excellent advice and answered all of our questions. Location: About a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral and... More

Welcoming knowledgeable, and helpful hosts. Beautifully appointed, clean, comfortable rooms with all you need for a comfortable stay. Close to the heart of Christchurch and walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. Will be back!

Great location to town and restaurants. Immaculate room, very quiet and comfortable bed. Naomi and Jeff are great at answering your questions. This was our first stop in NZ and they helped ease the transition. Jeff was particularly helpful with a situation we had with our car. We highly recommend CentrePoint.

We booked a room here on a fiend's recommendation, but their visit was about five years ago. We found Jeff to be very helpful and friendly with lots of recommendations and, as mentioned in previous reviews, a really useful map of local restaurants. Having done a lot of travelling, we were pleased to find clean, easy to use laundry facilities.... More

A central motel that has all the little extras and a massive king size bed. The Manager was extremely helpful marking out the must see sights to visit on a local map. We stayed in suite 1 which was under the stairs and whilst not intrusive we could here people coming and going. Would definitely return but would stay in... More

This hotel is located just inside what might be described as the 'ring road' around central Christchurch. The owners could not have been more friendly, and gave us a map with items of interest and restaurants listed. It would seem that some of the hotels have banded together co-op style to put this together, and it was appreciated. They have... More

Hello Thunderchief and thanks for the review. Thanks for mentioning that we, Naomi and I, Jeff, could not have been more friendly, which is how the vast majority of our guests do find us. Great to see you also appreciated our in room recycling system which is designed to fit in with the city run system. Thanks also for mentioning... More

Room was nice enough, clean and tidy. Bit pricey when comparing to another place we stayed at in Christchurch. Not sure of hosts name but I think he needs to change career. Possibly not regular host as he wanted to know exactly when we would be checking out-my husband said wasn't sure but would be by 10 o'clock and he... More

When we make decisions related to operating the motel, we rely on a number of avenues of guest feedback and we look for patterns. Patterns tell us what we need to be doing to keep the motel running at an optimal level and the simple truth is that we ignore these patterns at our peril. Just referring to Trip Advisor... More

An excellent choice - thanks, TripAdvisor! Very good location - just a few minutes walk from the centre of the city, and within reach of restaurants etc. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped, and the local facilities map from our host was very handy. If I'm ever coming this way again, this will be my first choice.
