Jeff and Naomi were great to deal with, very informative and very helpful. The rooms were modern and comfortable, with a lot of thought gone into the information that they have available in their room's. Many thanks for a wonderful stay and we will definately be back.

We chose CentrePoint on Colombo after reading all of the glowing reviews. Jeff was very welcoming and helpful when we first arrived, providing us with a couple of maps of Christchurch and ideas for what we could do during the afternoon. The room was extremely clean, among the cleanest motel rooms I've ever stayed in, and had great amenities. We... More

This is our go to accommodation whenever we go to Christchurch. It's pretty central (maybe 15 to 20 minutes walk to the centre of town), there is plenty of free parking outside and the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The owners - a kiwi and japanese husband and wife team - are friendly and helpful. The rooms come... More

We stayed one night at the Centre Point on Colombo Motel, as we were en route to various adventures in the South Island. Jeff (the owner?) was at the desk and greeted us in a very down to earth, pleasant and comfortable way. He gave us a full and complete rundown on the town, the history of the recent multiple...

Jeff gave us a warm welcome and great recommendations what's nearby - helpful and friendly folks. Stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with my family. Room is well heated with nice shower amenities, clean, spacious, comfy heated beds, we were given cookies and milk. Located at Colombo st, short walk Downtown and restaurants/cafes nearby. Library is just round the corner.

Stayed a few nights here and it was great. The rooms were massive, warm (despite it being freezing outside) and spotless. The location was really good, it was walking distance to pretty much everywhere. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice, clean and tidy apartments, close to the main centre, but the stand-out was the proprietors, Jeff and Naomi. Friendly and helpful. Suggest that you take advantage of the list of restaurants nearby which the owners have put together themselves - very helpful.

We had 4 nights here and Jeff and Naomi were great. The rooms are so clean and big. Anything you want to know ask Jeff, great advisor. The motel is so central to everything and even though you are on a main road you don't hear a thing. Thank you again Jeff and Naomi.xx
