All the positive reviews are spot on. The owner was so welcoming and helpful, giving clear directions to places of interest and suggesting sights. She also provided a separate map and information (address, operating hours, and price ranges) for a great number of restaurants in the immediate area and within walking distance. We liked the two levels, which the unit...

I travel all the time, and the title, Best Motel, doesn't come easy. It Just had everything I needed when I needed it with no hassle. Friendly staff, great location, clean, spacious and reasonably priced room. The list continues, but you get the picture. From now on, it's the only place I'll stay in Christchurch.

I concur with other excellent reviews. CentrePoint was ideal for our needs during our 4 day stay. The little table and chairs on the upstairs deck was a great place to meet people. The kitchen items were sufficient to prepare a simple meal. Wifi was good with very simple terms of use that you could actually read, "Be good online"...

Thanks for the review after staying with us for 4 nights. The weather must have been great while you were here and wonderful you made use of the communal balcony area to relax and meet other guests.

The official Centrepoint automobile declares its central location in its motto written on the door, and we were delighted to discover that it truly was within walking distance of most restaurants and attractions that we wanted to visit. And there was always a parking place for our car when we had to use it. The owner/manager helped us move our...

Yes, the CentrePoint mobile does scream the praises of the motel - its proximity to the city centre as well as 30 restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Great to see you loved all aspects of your room, One Bedroom Apartment which gives extra space and separate areas to travelling couples. Oh and ye, we do have a free carpark,...

Thank you Dmitry T for the review. Yes, the motel next to us, which will remain nameless, looks like ours, they were designed by the same person. We are the newer one (fact), we are closer to town (fact) and we are better (personal opinion, and backed up by Trip Advisor ranking!) But enough about that! Great to see that...

The staff were lovely and helpful and were happy to add a bed to the lounge room for my son. The rooms had air-conditioning, modern TV's and we had USB chargers. The beds were comfy and so was the couch with lovely cushions. The whole feel was homely, warm and inviting. The location was perfect to walk around the city.

Easy to find from the airport and well-positioned as a base for driving around town. It's just as easy to leave the car and walk into the city centre - a ten-minute gentle stroll; the room was well-equipped; the bed was perfect for a solid catch-up sleep after a long flight. Everything we needed and nothing we didn't.

Jeff was extremely helpful on check in. He explained how to things worked at the hotel and how to get around Christchurch. The room was very clean and eco friendly. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the city and there are bus stops nearby. A really friendly experience.

We stayed here for one night on our arrival in New Zealand. The folks at reception were very friendly and had good suggestions about where to eat. The place was clean and quiet. I'd definitely stay here again.
