We arrived around 3:00 AM from a delayed overseas flight. We had alerted the manager and our room was waiting for us - lights on and a bottle of milk for breakfast in the refrigerator. The room and bathroom were clean and well appointed. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. We liked it so much we booked another stay... More

We arrived in Christchurch on a very late evening flight from Melbourne. As arranged the keys to our room were waiting for us. Our rooms were very well presented with a king sized bed, small kitchenette and immaculate, well stocked bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom was spacious and there were numerous channels of television. We were travelling to Picton on... More

We were only staying 1 night so chose here for its proximity to the city centre. Rooms were clean with free wifi and a friendly owner. We walked into the centre and were shocked to see how bad Christchurch still is.

This room had exactly what my group needed. There was lots of space in each room, with a separate living area from the bedroom, as well as being clean and comfortable. The excellent shower helped wash the grim from travelling off. The location was very convenient. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to people visiting Christchurch.

We were delighted with our choice of the City Centre Motel in Christchurch. The walk into the city was easy which was great as we had not yet rented our car. Christchurch, still in the throes of earthquake recoveyr, is well worth several days. Many of the attractions have re-opened and tourist support is very much required. If you go,... More

This is a pretty good choice for Christchurch - just a short drive to the city centre, big spacious and clean rooms. And the staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped with cutlery, crockery and a microwave. We were also very grateful for the heater as Christchurch was pretty cold when we were there. The only... More
