Made reservations on the same day and they booked us no problem. On arrival at around 5pm, the front desk was waiting for us and greeted us very pleasantly. She walked us into our room and already had the heater going for us to ensure the room was cozy before we checked in. She even offered some good restaurants for... More

The hotel is very well-located, near restaurants and a 10-minute walk from most sights in Christchurch, but it was very quiet. The reception and staff were very friendly and the room was perfect for our needs. The bed was comfortable, the kitchenette was well equipped and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has to stay a few days... More

Later check-in (after 8pm) was not a problem, and we were greeted and shown to our room where the heater was already on. Lovely big bed, nicely set up room with Sky TV, free wifi, kitchen with plenty of appliances. Only downsides (and I know I am being picky) would be the pillows which are huge and unwieldy, and the...

I have stayed in CHCH several times and this was my first time at the Colombo in the City. Needles to say that I will be happily staying there again. The rooms were nice and modern with a great bathroom and kitchenette area.

My family and I had an enjoyable stay at Colombo In the City Motel. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Our room was equipped with the kitchen utensils and breakfast meals were provided in our room prior to our late arrival at the motel.

We needed one night to watch the Crusaders game. This was the perfect place . We requested and got two adjoining rooms as there was two couples. We flew in from Palmy North. Very well appointed above average facilities. Decent extractor in bathroom. Only downside was there was no A/C. It might get too hot in summer for us.

We loved our stay at Colombo in the City. Our host was super helpful. Our two bedroom unit was perfect for a family of four. The teens loved the free wi-fi and the Mum loved the spa bath. Very comfortable beds. So close to everything. Easy to walk everywhere. Would absolutely stay here again.
