We stayed here as a group of 8 on the final night of a motorcycle tour of the South island. Fantastic, modern rooms with everything you need, including super comfy beds and lovely bathroom lotions and potions. Convenient parking and loads of it. Staff were great and we received a recommendation to dine at Fiddlesticks, which turned out to be... More

We stayed for one night on our arrival into Christchurch. Colombo is modern accommodation, clean and comfortable and well stocked. The kitchen facilities are clean and well looked after. The WiFi is excellent. Location is close to the city about a 15 minute walk and a supermarket is about a 5 minute drive towards the end of the road. Parking... More

We needed a city centre hotel for two nights prior to flying home to the UK. The staff were incredibly helpful and made our short stay a real pleasure. The studio room was better than we imagined, larger very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It contained all the equipment needed for cooking etc. We will definitely book in next time we... More

We wanted somewhere to stay for two nights after a long flight from the UK, and chose this motel on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews. It was the ideal choice. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The location is good for exploring the city centre. The couple who run the place were helpful and attentive and full of information about... More

I've stayed one night. They let us have comportable feelings in unfamiliar environment for Korean. They also kinly attached memo not to make a problem although our very late check-in due to bus arrival time delay. I moved to another motel near by airport due to earlier boarding time after one night, but I felt bad for not staying more... More

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. Modern, clean, extremely comfortable and double glazed! I booked for two nights but at the last moment needed to cancel one of the nights. They made absolutely no fuss about this. THEN a day later (day before arriving) I realised I would need two nights after all. At no point did... More

We stayed at the Colombo for a night prior to flying home to the UK. The studio was clean and tidy with everything that you need. The owner was extremely helpful and informative providing lots of recommendations for food and local places to visit. We would recommend the cardboard church which is a temporary solution following the earthquake. Fiddlesticks restaurant... More
