We stayed in this hotel after arriving in Christchurch from Sydney. The owners were very friendly and helpful throughout our 3 night stay, even helping when my luggage didn't arrive from Sydney! The room was very nice, spacious and had a clean bathroom and mini kitchen. It was a quick walk to the town centre and there were a few...

We arrived at Centrepoint on Colombo to commence our driving holiday around the South Island.

Hello there Laura Y and thanks for the review. Interesting that you found us to be lacking in value even though you got a free upgrade, but that's ok. Isn't really anything in your comments to indicate why you felt that way either. Also, the lock on your room, not the door was broken - it happens since they get...
