We only spent 1 night here but it was a great place to stay. The bed was massive & everything was beautifully presented. There was a full TV set up including DVD player, the bathroom included make up remover wipes & even the free cookies were tasty! Free onsite parking is good too. It looks like the owners really care.... More

We were really impressed by the care and attention taken by the manager, Russell. He was very conscientious and obliging, getting us a hotplate and pan for our unit, and storing our bike and skis in his lockup shed. Our unit was very clean and maintained to a high standard. The location is fantastic, with the downtown and many restaurants... More

Used this motel as our base when we visited Christchurch and stayed for 3 nights. The location is very good being close to the City Centre. We were able to leave the car and walk to Cathedral Square and the City Centre. Still so much to do there. There is relatively easy access to the road to and from the... More

Great location, easy drive from airport and a main road to city centre. Very clean and tidy.

Only thing to look out for was the bathroom, got very wet after shower,... More

The accommodation was excellent, with the rooms very clean and warm in the winter months. A nice touch, was coming back to the room at night, and the electric blankets and heaters were all on. Great when it was zero outside.

What luck we had in booking this motel. It was so clean, quiet and warm. Walking distance to everything. Very comfortable, the service was great, and it ticked all our boxes! Definitely keen to stay again.

I very much enjoyed my stay. The rooms was spacious and toasty warm in winter.I particularly appreciated the leather sofa, being very comfortable - this is often lacking in hotel rooms. Host very helpful and friendly. Room spotlessly clean. Generous parking onsite.My feedback would be that if other guests had made use of the smoking facilities on the verandah outside... More

Colombo in the City is a perfect option for those wanting a spacious room with good amenities and excellent service close to the CBD. Paid for a studio and ended up with a 2 storey room with kitchenette, lounge and bathroom in the ground floor and bedoom upstairs in a loft style. Not sure if they are all like this... More
