CentrePoint on Colombo Motel
Ranked #6 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 19, 2013

This little gem is conveniently located and yet, unlike the Novotel Hotel, you are not immediately surrounded by the earthquake devastation that consumes so much of Christchurch more than two years after the disaster. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Even with a big king size bed, kitchenette and two lounge chairs we still felt like we had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The room was clean, modern and nicely decorated. The bathroom was spotless and beautiful, all sparkling white tiles, pristine. The room had a jacuzzi tub but we didn't use it. From the cookies that awaited us in our room, to the recycling bins, the attention to detail, service and comfort was evident. Our only regret is that we did not discover this treasure on our first stop in Christchurch. A far better value and experience than the Novotel.

Hello there 571Roxanne and thanks for takling the time to review us! Yes, we are just so lucky that our area of town (even though we are right in the city centre) was not visited by the devastation just a block away. Great to see you loved your room, and our style of service and felt that you had good value out of your stay with us. Thank you for the compliments.

Lovely place, great people and an amazing atmosphere. The only place I will stay in Christchurch. I always look forward to my business trips because I know when I stay at the centrepoint and that I will have a home away from home. I will always stay with Jeff and Naomi even if they don't want me to :-))

Hello Eliot S and welcome to TripAdvisor! Thanks for the review, and thanks for recognising the atmosphere we share with many of our guests. As much as possible we like to bring the office banter down to a friendly level so that guests can relax - if they want to of course! It's great to see that we can accommodate you while you are in town on business and love that you'll be back to the darn best place in Christchurch!! See you then.

This motel is a short walk into the city centre and run by very nice people who were friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and clean. The motel is a little dated but very comfortable. We didn't have the breakfasts as we wanted to walk into the city in the morning . There was plenty of choice in the 'container mall'.

We chose CentrePoint on Colombo Motel based on previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We were delightfully rewarded with the warm welcome and always available presence of hosts Jeff & Naomi, the very clean sheets, clean and environmentally friendly rooms. The "green" touches were very evident from providing boxes for recycling materials to the toiletries. We love the little touches like providing moisturing lotion which lasted us almost the entire 8 days we spent in NZ! Thanks). We appreciated the generous shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. It's located in a quiet vicinity yet within close proximity to historic and interesting places like the Cathedral Square, Botanic Garden, Cantebury Museum, Avon River. We slept very well after a long flight and extensive tour of the city. Definitely look forward to the opportunity to stay there again! Xie-xie!

Had an amazing two night stay. Te owner Jesse couldn't have been more helpful with his suggestions. Room really comfortable and spacious. Would definitely stay again. Despite a lot of Christchurch being still under construction we would definitely recommend visiting.

Great customer service, lovely breakfast served hot for a nice change. Very friendly and helpful people. Would definitely recommend. Had a small earthquake tremor at around 4.30am and the owner didn't even mention it. Must be used to it happening by now.

Hello Pcraggs and thanks for staying with us while in Christchurch on business. Great to seeyou liked our style of hospitality and the cooked breakfast which is a great start to the day for corporate guests who may not get a break during the day. Yes, we still get the odd quake and we have become somewhat used to them. Will never grow to like them but we do get use to them. Hope to see you again when you are next in town for work!

I booked my stay here based on previous reviews here on TripAdvisor and wasn't disappointed. From the moment I arrived, Jeff and Naomi were fantastic hosts, giving me information on the local area, what to see and do as well as well as places to eat close to the motel. Don't let the word motel fool you either - this is not some dingy roadside dive you see in B-movies. My room was immaculate and the welcoming touches of cookies and mints very much appreciated. It was also very quiet at night which was welcome for a city centre location. The motel was also within easy walking distance of all of Christchurch's major attractions which only added to its appeal. Having booked a trip on the TranzAlpine train for one day (well worth it by the way), Jeff and Naomi helped me sort out transfers to and from the rail station which lies some distance from the CBD. They also sent me an email after I'd left thanking me for my stay and wishing me a good time in my next destination - what big hotels do that eh?

Given all of the above, I can happily give this place five out of five stars and am looking forward to visiting them again at some point in the future!

Hello there geoffsbutler and thanks for staying and reviewing us. Love the comment about dingy roadside dives in B-movies and great to see you have mentioned it. Yes! NZ motels are in a class of their own!! Yes, while we are so close to town, we are very quiet, both at night and day. With a few daytime exceptions though. Great to see you liked our style of hospitality and thanks for the 5 out or 5 stars - we look forward to seeing you here again in Christchurch again too!
