We really enjoyed our time at this property. The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. Free wifi was good to the kids. Nice gardens request the one with patio if you can. We Will definitely be visiting here again.

We recently had a night here and found it to be a good location with friendly service and nice rooms. Our room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed including free wifi. Off street parking available. Request a ground floor room if you don't or can't use the flight of stairs.

Nice spacious room, very clean. About a 15 minute walk to the city centre which is slightly out of the way but not too bad. Staff were excellent and friendly. Wifi is free and price for stay seemed pretty spot on.

It was booked as part of our tour package and we believed it was 4 star, more like a 1960's hotel with a poor re-furb. No tiling in the bathroom and shower mixer at head height, no toiletries had to ask for soap. After hours walking around the city we returned to rest before dinner but for 2 hours had... More

This was my first stay and glad I picked City Centre Motel... the room was clean, roomy, and walking distance to downtown. Staff was cheerful, had a washer an dryer for guest. Will surely stay longer on my next visit.

We booked on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Super easy check in on arrival, the reception could not have been more helpful. I asked if we had milk and was advised long life was already in the fridge but they would be happy to get us fresh if we preferred. Huge wifi allowance, large ground... More

Room on the small side for three people but would have been great for two people. Clean and bright. Bathroom had a spa tub. Ten minutes easy walk to the city center. Wifi connection was good, motel was easy to find. Christchurch still pretty much under construction so don't recommend spending more than a day there.

Very clean close to city centre everything is within walking distance. Peter the manager couldnt have been more helpful and friendly, with excellent tips on where to go and things to do. I managed to leave some belongings which he sent onto Australia for me. Highly recommend a stay here

Location was good, easy 5-10min walk into city and Victoria St which had some good places to eat. Rooms were clean and functional with small kitchenette with microwave but no cooking facilities. Good shower with spa bath, bed was comfortable. Has laundry facilities within motel but not in rooms.

The living room area is very spacious with full kitchen equipment, good for long stay. It's about 5-10 min walk to city center for restaurants. I love the well heated rooms, perfect for the occasionally chilly night in November. They have canes and poles and umbrellas to borrow at front desk. Nice and friendly staff.
