Hi there,,
The Central city appartments Is a motel in Christchurch Newzealand
,It`s very close to the city, only a 5 minute walk away And for those with a car or van the car parking is excellent ,
the staff and the managment are very helpfull and very good to deal with and are very imformative about the local and surrounding areas, and the site seeing opportunities in the south Island are endless.
At a rate of approx $115-155 per night is excellent value.

  • Liked — location and price
  • Disliked — nothing really the odd bit of street noise , but thats the city ..

On a recent visit to New Zealand we needed to stay a couple of nights in Christchurch and found this place on the net. We couldn't have been more pleased with it; the rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the motel is an easy walk from the central city. The owners, who have apparently taken over the place quite recently, were really friendly and helpful - they even sorted out a rental car for us at excellent rates. Thumbs up and five stars, and if ever we get back to Christchurch we'll be back for more.

We recently had occassion to travel to Christchurch for an overnight stay and chose to stay at CITY CENTRAL MOTEL APARTMENTS as they were situated close to where I had an appointment. We found this accommodation through the AA 2008 Visitor Guide book and booked online. The service we received was very courteous and the bed was to die for, much better than the one at home. The standard of cleanliness was exemplery and I communicated this fact to management concerned to pass to the cleaning staff who do a lovely job and obviously take pride in their work. My wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending this motel to any potential traveller looking for comfortable lodgings, with numerous eateries in close proximity to the motel. My wife was a big fan of the widescreen t.v.

We came across City Central Motel Apartments by chance and were really glad that we did.

The rooms are spotless and modern, the service was amazing and the price was really reasonable (even for round the world backpackers like ourselves!).

Highly recommended

This motel was very close to town, a great location! The rooms were quiet and warm, perfect for a winter trip to Christchurch. I will definitely be back, a very enjoyable stay. Thanks for your hospitality!

We spent 3 nights here whilst visiting family in Christchurch. We had a studio unit on the ground floor which we found to be spacious and well equipped. The unit had a large flat screen TV, couch, table & chairs and a very comfortable queen sized bed. The unit had recently been refurbished and was tastefully decorated. It had a separate kitchen & bathroom.
The motel is centrally located and only a short walk to the city centre. It has ample parking. There are a number of supermarkets and food outlets nearby.
The unit was double glazed, warm and sunny.
The motel is located on Barbados Street which is quite busy but we didn't find road noise to be a problem.
The owners were friendly and accomodating. They didn't hesitate to go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable during our stay.
We thought the motel to be very good value for money and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
