Stayed there on my first and last day in Christchurch. Room is well decorated and clean. Cooking facilities are adequate but we didn't get to use them. Plenty of parking spaces. Located near within driving distance to most major attractions.

City centre is a good 10 minutes walk. Motel room clean and tidy. Well appointed with helpful staff. Unfortunately the motel staff booked an early morning taxi to take me to the airport which did not arrive so I had to make my own arrangements. Inconvienced.

We recently spent four days at the City Centre Motel and were both very impressed. Staff were helpful and our room was serviced daily. All our needs were met. This is a great location as it is central to everything. The cleanliness of the room and throughout the establishment could not be faulted. We would definitely stay there again and... More

This motel was recently remodeled and they did a great job. It was a very tidy motel and the room we stayed in was a perfect size for our four people family. Plus the beds were soft! The location was also nice and we had a good breakie about 1 kg away at Vic's.

We booked three nights and when we arrived and went into our room we noticed that the shower nozzle was dripping. We reported this to the person on reception and were told a plumber would be there on the following day. We left three days later and the leak hadn't been fixed and the carpet near the bathroom door was... More

We booked on price and location and were not disappointed. Christchurch CDB, which is down the road a bit is still in shambles, but this area is fine. Located near the Botanical Gardens and good restaurants. Clean room and comfortable bed, shady parking.

This is a wonderful motel ran by a Shanghai couple and we are from Shanghai as well, which makes us feel more like home. It's the first stop after we arrived New Zealand, my parents talked happily with the owner and the preparation of our late arrival is thoroughly and nice. Thank you very much

Convenient located within walking distance to restaurants and city attractions. Staff always willing to answer questions and provide useful information. Stayed in large 1 bedroom apartment with kitchenette, it has all we needed. Free internet and car parking.

Stayed for two nights. The room was clean and functional - not a lot of character. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of sound insulation between rooms and so we were woken during the night with one adjacent tenant throwing up and another family leaving for the airport about 4:00am. Options for breakfast on a Sunday morning are slim! However,... More

Hello rsf-brit and thank you for the review. Christchurch had a series of earthquakes that resulted in 80% of the CBD being demolished and while its taking a while to rebuild that doesn't mean that we are not in the city centre. Colombo St is the main street of the city. We are a great place to stay because you... More
