Run, don't walk to book this motel. It has immaculate, fastidiously clean rooms. You literally could eat off the floors! The room has everything you could want, including great WiFi with an abundance of outlets that are missing in a lot of other places. The room itself is a nice size with a king size bed and couch both within... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Colombo with wife and baby and really enjoyed it. We had a 1 bedroom loft (room 811) which was up a flight of stairs at the rear of the property. Room: Modern, everything working, looked like the photo on the website - so no complaints. Beds were really comfortable, good black out blinds. The only... More

We stayed at the Columbo Motel for 2 nights in February. We found the stay most enjoyable and the host was very helpful and informed us of places to visit and good places to eat. The room was very comfortable and clean and it was only a 10 minute walk to the CBD. Would definitely stay there again!

Dropped at the door by the Super shuttle, this is an ideal motel to explore Christchurch. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Bathroom was tiny, I Use a wet shaver and the sink was way too small. The shower head pointed straight at the door so it was impossible to set the temperature without going in and shutting the door. Apart from... More

We simply could not believe all that was included in this stay. Shame we only stayed two short nights due to our travel itinerary. Very clean duplex room with everything you could need for your stay. Hosts accommodated both a very late/very early check out. Gave good recommendations for eating and sightseeing.

We stayed at the Colombo on our first night in New Zealand. Excellent accommodation. Very comfortable and clean and the host was very helpful with information and directions. Didn't even charge us extra when we overstayed by two hours as we were unaware of the checkout times. Would definitely recommend this apartment. Jackie and Kenny. - UK.

the unit was clean, spacious and well appointed. Free wifi. we had a small outdoor courtyard but there is also a nice shared area with outdoor seating. The gardens are very pretty too. Owners were welcoming and very up to date with where to eat and go.

This is the best place we have stayed in New Zealand on our one month driving tour. The owner was friendly and escorted us to the room to explain how everything works. Even though it is summer here, it can be chilly in the mornings. We were delighted to have warm towels after our shower, great coffee in the room... More

The motel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is close to the city centre within walking distance and has free parking. The guy was very helpful and gave us good advise about where to eat etc.
