Tripadvisor Reviews were 10/10!!! My family and I just spent one night at this motel.. and I have to say.. Tripadvisor reviews were spot on! In Summary, the place is very close to town, reasonable priced, clean and owners are very very very helpful… almost too much!!! Rooms are clean, comfortable, big size, with SKY and DVD player. You can...

Hi there SouCross and thanks for the review! Great to see you were able to rely on the TripAdvisor reviews and you got what you were expecting!

I stayed at the Centrepoint on Colombo during a recent visit to Christchurch. The room was fairly basic, but did have several amenities. It is located close to downtown, thus making it convenient. The reception staff was very friendly and informative. Excellent WiFi service. My only complaint would be that the room was quite cold when I entered and took...

Thanks for the review Samuel A - possibly about the first Kiwi motel you've stayed in? We know that while you did not choose to stay with us ~ you were booked in by a corporate client ~ your eyes lit up when you saw our TA awards in the Reception area. Usually corporate guests like yourself would be accommodated...

The jovial owner was welcoming as was the wife-both informative and extremely helpful in assisting with directions throughout the city to the airport. Room was nice, loved the spa bath which you barely see in hotel rooms let alone motels. We only stayed one night stopover before heading home to Australia. Dinner was within walking dis training distance. They deserve...

Thanks for the review DonisaurMK7. I have been called many things but "Jovial" is one of the more pleasurable ones! Following that "informative" and "extremely helpful" are noice too! Great that you loved the spa bath and the room in general! Next time be sure to stay longer - now you know of a great place to stay in Christchurch!

I found Centrepoint on Colombo on Trip Advisor and from the initial phone call to book I was impressed. Geoff was friendly and helpful and sent an e-mail to confirm the booking. When we arrived we were early but that wasn't a problem - we were shown to our rooms which were clean, spacious and very well appointed. Throughout our...

Finding good accommodation in Christchurch was a hard task, but we got there with Centrepoint. Room for 5 was great, 2 spacious bedrooms and a comfy lounge - all very nicely done, tasteful and comfortable. Location is fine, the centre of Christchurch is a little confusing because of all the earthquake damage meaning many open spaces in the CBD. The...

Hello SteveP1874 and thanks for the review! It's always cool to get a review from a senior contributor. Yes! You travelled with family but you were a grown up family, as opposed to a young family. This room's facilities mean that a grown up family like yourselves can have a comfortable stay as you have attested. Great to see you...

I was pleasantly surprised by CentrePoint on Colombo. It was initially my plan to stay at a B&B throughout my various stops in the South Island, including Christchurch. However, there were none that was suitable (be it being imposed a min. number of nights, availability, etc), which led me to find CentrePoint. I’m extremely pleased to have made the decision...

Very pleasantly surprised when accidentally put on the other side of town from the next mornings meeting. Clean and spacious with sky in full so you could pick and choose. Just like being at home and the service from the friendly owners superb. Stay here if you get a chance it's pretty good.
