“Great room, good location, perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stayed here overnight on a self drive holiday around New zealand. We were upgraded to a beautiful split level 1 bed, with bedroom upstairs and kitchen/lounge downstairs. It was October and still a little chilly so the electric blankets were very welcome :-) Lots of information available from the owners and in the room on restaurants etc and good wifi. I commend them on being so eco-friendly and encouraging guests to recycle. Nice touch providing cookies too. We had a great stay and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend, good location to walk into Christchurch and great Thai food container at the top of the street.

Hit there autumn1082 and thans for the review. Great to see you enjoyed the free upgrade - yes sometimes things like that happen! Great to see you also like the info we offered and found the wifi ($5 per day for up to 2 connections - unlimited unthrottled access) good. Thansk for also recognuising our eco policies - very humbling. Also great to see you found us conviniently placed for walking round town and yes - the Thai Container is very good!

We spent our last two nights in NZ at Centrepoint. We were provided with maps of the city and surrounding areas and I found the information booklet in our room very helpful.
the family atmosphere and the efforts to be eco friendly were very commendable.
the bathroom in our room could have done with a bit of an update!
We would definitely stay at Centrepoint again.

A great place to start our trip to New Zealand. Jeff and Naomi were the perfect hosts and tour guides. We walked for miles using the map provided by Jeff which had everything marked on it from the outlined red zone to restaurants and tourist sites. We had a fantastic time here thanks to these two.

Excellent info from motel staff and a good map with directions for key places to visit in Christchurch. The room was fantastic, had everything you could want plus more, the spa bath was a great bonus. Just what we needed between a couple of long days of driving. I would recommend a visit to Christchurch, there is great spirit in the city and it is on the up.

Jeff was helpful, and available with suggestions for dinner, and a good walk. He arranged a shuttle for our group of 7 from the airport, and the next morning to the train.
The rooms are lovely, clean, spacious, and comfy.
Really can't imagine a better stay. Will be back.

We stayed here on our very first night in NZ and it was just what we needed after 24 hours of traveling. The owners and amazing, welcoming, and very helpful. Our rooms were wonderful, spacious clean and comfortable. We walked EVERYWHERE in Christchurch from the hotel and all the helpful suggestions from the owners were perfect. I would highly recommend staying here and if we ever come back, no question where we will stay!
