We arrived in Christ Church to have our shuttle driver drop us off at the wrong hotel located down the street. The attendant their kindly called the Colombo and advised of our problem. We had so much luggage that there was no way that we would be able to walk the half-mile to the correct hotel. The owner jumped in... More

Our stay at Colombo in the city was lovely. The hosts were really helpful in every way. The room was spotless and self contained with clean crispy sheets and really comfy bed. Tasteful overnight supplies in both the kitchen and bathroom made for less unpacking for one night! Would have been nice to stay longer and explore the surroundings. A... More

I don't understand other comments made about this motel - I thought it was very good indeed. The apartment was very comfortable, clean, good self-catering facilities, plenty of parking, friendly staff and very close to the city centre. The only slight downside is that it is fairly close to a busy road so it was not as quiet as hoped.

Honestly, there's not a lot going on in Christchurch so you don't want to stay there long. We stayed on our final night as it's only a 15 minute drive to the airport which is great. The room was very basic but the bed was comfortable enough. Don't expect luxury, this is just a place to stay! The staff were... More

Columbo in the city is perfectly located for a visit to Christchurch city. It's a mere 10min stroll from the Cathedral. Very helpful at reception with tips for local eateries as well as things to see& do around town. Room was perfect for our 3 day stay. Plenty of space and comfy beds. Great start to our NZ adventures.

After reading reviews on here I decided to book this motel and was expecting a high quality motel which was good value for money. I was very disappointed! The first room we were allocated smelt very bad and once I mentioned it, to the credit of the management of the motel, we were moved to another room which smelt much... More

Close to center of Christchurch, clean, friendly, comfortable place to stay. Good place to stay if you want to have a walk around town and eat at one of the restaurants close by. Every thing you need was provided in this motel room.

have just finished our stay in chch and Columbo in the City. The rooms have everything you need and are comfy and spotlessly clean. The owners went out of there way to help us, from booking airport taxis, printing airline tickets, and even offering us a beer before we left to come home. If in chch this is the place... More
