Wonderful obliging hosts, the motel is modern, bed was comfortable and bathroom clean with good hot water. Properly maintained and central. After our first visit, we automatically rebook this motel whenever visiting Christchurch

We stayed in room 805 which was near the front of the site and close to reception. We were a bit worried about potential road noise but this wasn't an issue. In fact the only noise came from the people upstairs on our first night and the following morning who kept banging doors. When I mentioned this at reception on... More

There is a lot going for this little motel however a few things could have made it better. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Furniture is pretty basic and the kitchenette is really for making tea or coffee. There is a good sized fridge. The staff gave us a couple of re mendacious for restaurants and the one... More

This was a quick overnight in Christchurch but a really clean and neat little motel, friendly service and central to the centre of Christchurch. Very clean and the outside areas were beautifully maintained too. Nice to hear the birds and even the cicadas in the trees. Bed was comfortable and bathroom clean with good hot water.

Since the earthquake of 2011, Christchurch is rebuilding. This centrally located motel is clean, affordable and close to the main downtown attractions of the Canterbury ?Museum and the Botanical Gardens as well as all of lovely Hagley Park. Kitchenettes in all rooms allows you to make a cup of coffee and have breakfast before starting your day of touring. Easy... More

Stayed only one night during our tour. Our first floor room was clean, good size, well equipped and had plenty of windows. The city was within a short level walk and there were a good selection of places to eat not far away.

Really central, within walking distance of the city. Staff were friendly & helpful. There was a leak in my shower that was fixed as soon as I reported it. Little balcony a lovely touch. Clean. Good facilities. I'd recommend it, easy!

Can totally recommend this place. It is clean comfortable spacious and quiet. Very helpful staff. Bus stop right outside but only 10 min walk to cathedral square. Joined a free city walking tour at the sq. leaves at 11 every morning. Can recommend this too. Felt really at home at city centre motel. It's not 5 star but doesn't try... More

I wanted to give the City Centre Motel a particular shout out for being so helpful when I realised I'd left my red dress behind after visiting. It was a real favourite of mine and the proprietors thought nothing of posting it on to where I was subsequently staying where it arrived overnight. I was so grateful to them -... More

We had been here 6 years ago two times and also choose it this time! You get a lot of value for the money. Spacious room, clean (beside the sider webs at the windows outside), laundry, parking, free wifi and walking distance to the city center and restaurants around. It is very quite! We would come again and hope to... More
