Stayed here on a business trip. Was very comfortable (bed fabulous) and the room warm. Pleasant reception staff who ordered a taxi on time for the next day. Was very handy to the city. Had a meal up the road at Strawberry Fare(Divine!!!) Continental breakfast the next day was adequate and nicely presented.

Stayed one weekend night. Quiet, convenient location. Comfortable, modern, homely unit. Did have repeated trouble locking the door, which a staff member admitted was a recurring issue - this does need attention. Unfortunately a guest in a neighbouring room stood on the landing outside my room smoking and coughing a lot. I couldn't believe how many cigarettes she smoked in... More

We stayed two nights at this motel and found the location to be ideal--walking distance to a number of restaurants and not far from the main part of the city. A plus point is that it had the best Wi-Fi policy of all of our hotels/motels during our nine days of travel in New Zealand--free Wi-Fi in the room with... More

This motel is 1 km. of flat, easy walking from Christchurch's Cathedral Square (the city centre) so is well located. If walking isn't for you then a bus service operates along the road outside the motel. Check-in was made welcoming, efficient and easy. Staff were very helpful. "Our" unit on the first floor comprised lounge/dining area, separate bedroom (with wardrobe)... More

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
