Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely and clean hotel, close to the city with plenty of parking. The facilities were adequate for our needs, the bed was comfortable and there were some lovely bars and restaurants close by. We would highly recommend this hotel. Value for money…. It was fantastic.

An easy drive from the airport and good parking made this motel an excellent choice for our one night stay. The rooms are a good size with plenty of space for 2 suitcases and a very comfy bed. It’s an easy walk to the city and the great Riverside Market which we enjoy after eating airline food. We would definitely stay here again.

Great, comfortable stay in Christchurch. We had one night in mid November. Nice, clean, and friendly hosts. Easy walking distance to the main areas, food, rental car pick up in town, etc. We took the bus in from the airport. Space felt private and quiet. Nice big room space. Would stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived in NZ and 2 nights on the way back to Australia. A super location with easy walking to central city, shops, restaurants etc. lovely reception staff who were quite helpful. Some of the rooms are larger than others and we had a cooktop the first time but not the second. Comfy bed, hot water and great wifi, all you could need, and fresh milk as well ! You won’t be disappointed with Colombo in the City. The perfect place to base yourself while in Christchurch.

Super convenient walking to the CBD. Building was a little off putting when we entered but the place is meticulously maintained. The rooms are large and well equipped. Check in was easy and the manager was quite helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Friendly helpful staff who went out of their way to accommodate us. Clean and spacious room. Very good location near Cuba Street but far enough away to be quiet. Free Car parking saved cost of parking elsewhere

Very comfortable and warm room. It was also fairly quiet. Parking is easy, outside the door. Small kitchenette with plenty of space if you want to cook something simple. It’s a bit of a walk into the main part of town with the restaurants etc but it is doable. You don’t need to drive.
