I chose this motel, primarily because it was the closest I could find to the InterCity bus stop for an evening arrival. Overall, I'd say my experience was quite good. I was delayed by credit card issues and had to shift my booking forward one night. Peter was most most helpful and, since it was off-season, allowed the change without... More

I cancelled my booking at this establishment after I was delayed elsewhere in New Zealand as a result of Cyclone Lusi. I emailed them far in excess of 48 hours prior to my visit however I received a reply stating the full payment had been deducted from my account. I queried this and then received a series of rude emails... More

Spent two nights in City Central Motel being redirected there from Avalon Motels due to overbooking. On arrival check in procedure went without greater trouble, except for the fact that receptionist had no idea about Avalon Motel's overbooking issue and without even checking the computer he informed us that we came to a wrong place. Fortunately I had a copy... More

Biggest problem with this hotel is that wi fi is very limited so if you have to make reservations or plan your trip ahead, wifi ends up being completely useless. For tourists it's very hard. Additionally, walls are very thin. We could hear our next door neighbors till late at night. I would not recommend this place, if you need... More

I booked this hotel on a work trip. It's close to the city and walking distance to all the attractions. Just 2 mins from the cardboard cathedral. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and were always on hand to help. It seems to be a family run place and they're interested to stop and just chat for a while.

I stayed here for 2 days on business. Nice spacious room, basic but clean and had most things I needed. Was upgraded to a balcony room which was nice. The owner stayed up to greet me as I had a late check-in (10.45pm by the time I arrived) and was very friendly. The receptionist who was on the next day... More

This motel is close to the CBD area and it's within walking distance to the city centre. However, as major reconstruction is still going on, there is little to see there (in the CBD). The room was spacious and clean. Good sky tv channel selections and even comes with a dvd player

We arrived in Christchurch from Australia at 12:30 at night for our honeymoon. We had called a couple of days beforehand to get the key left out. The gentleman was very friendly on the phone, we arrived and our key was there. Although the rooms aren't 5 star quality, it was very warm and we had a great sleep, still... More

Great central accommodation. Friendly helpful staff and well priced. My Studio room was clean and well equipped and as I was on a quick business trip it was all I needed. I only booked for one night but stayed for three and as it was over the weekend and got there last booking.
