This is my second stay at the CentrePoint On Colombo Motel (first was 2010) and I am happy to report that my stay was as good as my first stay. Usually the second stay has high expectations that are seldom met - not in this case. Everything about this motel is five star - the friendliness - the quality -... More

The motel was clean and well-cared for, and nicely laid out. I found my room very quiet, warm and comfortable, exactly as advertised. The owners were all absolutely lovely and very helpful in both furnishing me with maps and information about local shops/restaurants. Very pleasant to talk to and extremely helpful. The internet allowance is very generous, and worked perfectly... More

We choose this motel on the trip advisor because of its high rating.We were put in a room for the disabled.We found this very depressing and the decor was very dull.The unit was geared for energy saving which I thought compromised any kind of luxury.We stayed in various motels on our travels around the South Island and this one we...

I have never been more flabbergasted by a reviewer’s comments. Does someone referring to a room as being “for the disabled” and then linking this directly with being “very depressing” show that even though disabled people are fully accepted as a valuable part of our society, there are still people who just don’t get it? I have no further comment. More

We arrived late in the drizzly rain. Tired after a protracted flight. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. He provided us with a very handy map of what was what nearby, including restaurants. Our room was toasty warm. Highly recommended.

Hello monikacanberra and thanks for taking the time to review us. Can't do much about the rain but can try real hard to make the sun shine through those clouds!

Spent the last 2 days of our 2-weeks NZ trip in Colombo. The motel was situated on a quiet street yet near to the city centre. Despite being on the ground floor where the carpark is, quality rest wasn't compromised. Rooms were huge and everything was clean. Toilet was also perfect for my husband who's in a wheelchair. There's a... More

My booking was based on reviews on Trip Advisor. Meeting Naomi at Reception on check in was pleasant, she offered a wealth of knowledge of the area for attractions and places to eat/visit. The rooms are large, spacious and offer all the amenities required. I know where I will be staying when I am back in Christchurch!

I have stayed here for business twice. It is a conveniently located, modern motel near the centre of Christchurch, and within walking distance of restaurants and cafe's.

Hi Marg22 and thanks for the review. Great to see you loved our 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit and the various facilities in it.
