I've been to New Zealand for holidays the past couple of years and we've always stayed here. Been a while since my last review and thought I'll leave another. Jeff has always been really friendly and helpful throughout our many stays here! We usually book the 2 bedroom suite but since this time there were only 2 of us, we... More

This is close to the city centre although due to the rebuild being central isn't such a benefit as it once was. The motel is clean and comfortable with good parking. The host is helpful although some may find his humour a bit too dry!

We stayed herevrecently at the end of our NZ tour. It's in a great location in central Christchurch and close to shops and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and tidy, with modern amenities, comfy beds and free wifi; the only disappointment was a plastic shower curtain for the shower. The owner was friendly, helpful and willing to share his... More

There was not enough time in my vacation but I needed to stop in Christchurch. I looked at the map of the center of the city and I found CentrePoint at Columbo. The motel is nice, the room is nice and its located a short five minute walk or less to Victoria Street which has a few restaurants. And less... More

The hotel was extremely clean and the staff was very accommodating! The manager gave us great insight into the town of Christchurch and made several recommendations for our stay. We reserved one of the less expensive rooms which was quite small, but everything was very nice. We walked into the city and to all the sights. While there, avoid the... More

This was our last stop after three weeks travelling around New Zealand. It was actually our 17th motel/hotel in NZ and it was definitely up there amongst the best. Not least because the the wonderful Jeff! What an amazing welcome and barrage of information about Christchurch: the rebuilding, attractions, restaurants etc... WOW! We had a one bedroom apartment which was... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Christchurch, and having it as my home travel base in March, 2105. I booked the trip (my first to NZ) a year in advance and traveled on my own from NYC, so hopefully that will add to anyone’s personal context. CentrePoint is family owned and run, which was a good thing to learn, and... More

After a wonderful two week vacation in South Island this was the last stop for our family of five before departing Christchurch the following day. There were numerous reviews of other hotels in Christchurch vis-a-vis price, location, etc. and I was really glad to book this place. From the time I did an online booking the response was fast and... More

This motel was easy walking distance from everything in Christchurch central, and also was an easy drive to Christchurch Airport. The service was good, with a very thorough explanation of things to do and even an excellent sheet of paper listing basically every restaurant in the area by price, with phone numbers and opening hours. The rooms were also extremely... More

Stayed here for two nights while in Christchurch. Located right near the middle of town but still a quiet place. A perfect location. Everything looked to be new, modern and very clean. Big size room. Beds were very comfortable. Great sheets, towels & pillows. The room also had a refrigerator, microwave and sink. Free Wi-Fi. A/C and cable TV. Restaurants... More
