“Fantastic Motel!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2010

We stayed at the City Centre Motel at the beginning of December 2009. My husband and I stayed at a number of motels throughout New Zealand and this was easily the best. The rooms were lovely, very clean, well looked after and nicely decorated. Mary and Tina were so nice and were very knowledgeable about the area and so helpful. It was so close to the centre of Christchurch and restaurants and had a bus stop right outside the gate.
The motel was so pleasant and quiet and the gardens are beautiful and superbly maintained. We had a great time in Christchurch and the City Centre Motel was a great place to stay. I will definitely recommend this motel to anyone travelling to New Zealand.
Thanks Tina and Mary for making our stay so great!!

Wonderful obliging hosts, the motel is clean, modern, properly maintained and central. After our first visit, we automatically rebook this motel whenever visiting Christchurch.

My sister and I stayed at the City Centre Motel for two weeks the end of October, beginning of November. The accommodations were very clean and modern. Tina and Mary, the owners, were always available to answer any questions or direct us to various places of interest in and around Christchurch. The motel is in walking distance of the Christchurch Square and Cathedral, and also on a bus line. A laundry room is available on the premises. A daily newspaper was delivered to our rooms every day. This was our first trip to NZ and should we ever return, we would not hesitate to contact this motel for accommodations. We had no negative experiences with this motel.
