I booked this at the last minute for our arrival that night & was not disappointed. We needed two rooms & these were both perfect. Very big (King plus) comfy beds in each room plus good size bathrooms with all the amenities. Hosts Jeff & Naomi were very welcoming & provided lots of advice & assistance. They even offer a...

The location is near platinum mall and pratunam market, which is a plus point if u are planning to shop majorly in that vicinity. We had a delightful 2 night stay in the family deluxe room - big and roomy, has a fridge, microwave. The staff were very nice and helpful. The morning buffet breakfast were also full of variety...

We arrived after midnight with access pre-arranged. The room was very comfortable, spacious and well set out. The ability to compost and recycle was very welcome too. The staff were helpful and friendly, and obviously take great pride in their business. I happily would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed just one night, but we enjoyed it very much. The owner was very chatty, friendly and helpful, which always makes such a difference. The room was spacious, and clean with good facilities. The price was excellent. It was located within a short walk of the CBD. We would definitely return if we are in Christchurch again.

Very comfortable bed and close to the city centre, easy walk to everywhere. The hosts were very helpful providing maps of the city and tourist highlights. We had a second night stay which was in the spa suite which was a lovely touch on a cold night.

I think this motel would be one of the best places to stay in Christchurch. Even though it is not as good as other big hotels such as Novotel in the area, this hotel is clean and cozy.

I spent one night to be near Forte Hospital and it was within easy walking distance. Close to great places to eat at night and during the day. The room was spacious and had everything I needed. Loved the recycling and the products they had in the room.

We had 1 night at this hotel after a long trip from San Francisco through Sydney. Since we needed sleep, I had requested a quiet room. This hotel is on a busy street and the rooms toward the road are possibly noisy. They had reserved a room in the back for us and it was very quiet. We slept well.... More

Despite less than ideal weather, we enjoyed the trip to beautiful Christchurch and our stay at CentrePoint on Colombo have been wonderful. Great location with awesome service (thank you Jeff, you've been so helpful). Lots of good food nearby (the Himalayan was really yummy). Easy parking outside our neat tidy and warm room. We will certainly be back!
