CentrePoint on Colombo Motel
Ranked #6 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Great location only a short walk from many of the good restaurants. The service was second to none with many suggestions to good eat locations prepared for you. The rooms were comfortable and the heating worked maybe a little too well.

Hi there nik22192 and thanks for the review. Yes, the heating does work well so its important to turn it down when retiring for the night or things can get a lil' too hot - so to speak. Other than that great to see you loved our central Christchurch accommodation options including all the great dining options in the Victoria St. preceinct which is just 5 mins walk away!

Great place to stay very close to the CBD without being right in the thick of it. Jeff and his family are very friendly and can offer great advice, and it's nice to stay somewhere and support a family business.

Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a nice, warm place to stay.

Really had a great experience here. The hosts are super friendly and I felt really well taken care of. They go the extra mile to be helpful, I am a big fan of great customer service. Good location, clean and comfortable. We stayed 6 nights and would recommend to anyone visiting the city.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom suite great for families.

Hello there FamilyTravellers and thanks for staying with us for the week after returning from overseas before you could return to your own house. Great to see you found our 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit exceeded your expectations and made your week away from home very comfortable for your family. Yes, this unit is great for families but also great for travellers who just like lots of space & extended privacy - in the centre of Christchruch!

Nice motel, clean and friendly. Centrally located, within easy walk to the CBD.
Geoff and Naomi spared no effort to make our stay comfortable. Geoff prepared a map of surrounding facilities that he updates regularly as more businesses re-open after the devastating earthquake.
I will sure stay there again.

Excellent location. A short walk into hard hit Christchurch center. Extremely helpful hosts. They helped with directions and any questions. Rooms have everything. Various pillows, heated towel racks, room safe, flashlights, 50 + channels, milk, laundry room, complete kitchens. I stayed 3 nights and was quite comfortable.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quiet and they have suites which are two floors.

HI there Jaimie L and thanks for the review after staying 3 nights with us. Nice to see you were happy commenting that "we take care of the little things"!! Yes the One Bedroom Apartments are very quiet rooms - expansive floor area and great with the bedroom separate from the lounge area. Great that you loved being with us in the centre of Christchurch where there is a great range of options you can easily walk to!

This is my second stay at the CentrePoint On Colombo Motel (first was 2010) and I am happy to report that my stay was as good as my first stay. Usually the second stay has high expectations that are seldom met - not in this case. Everything about this motel is five star - the friendliness - the quality - the finishes - the position - the cleanliness - even the costs. The office has all the leaflets and maps you may need and of course there is the free Wi-Fi (or really cheap Wi-Fi if more is required). Add to this the free parking!!!
When I go back to Christchurch I will definitely stay there again - no questions asked!

Hello craiglmoss and thanks for the review after your second visit to Christchurch and staying with us. Great to see we had not dropped the ball over the last 4 years. Yes, we do now have free Wi-Fi, 1GB per room per day and if you need more its not that much. Great to see you'll be back! See you then.
