This is a great accommodation - it is very well run, clean and well located. The rooms are a very good size, extremely comfortable and well equipped. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and we recommend it.

Hello DWsh and thanks for that title! We do try our best to make sure everyone who stays with us has a great experience and sometimes people - especially those who bookend their holiday with us do say that we were the best they had stayed at! Thank you!

Hi there ilulu2014 and thanks for the review. Great to see you approved of and liked our motel, rooms and our close proximity to the centre to Christchurch. We (Jeff and Naomi) do try to make sure everyone gets the most out of their visit to Christchurch.

We stayed here both coming and going. Other than road construction, it was perfect. The owners were friendly and helpful. Short walk to a beutiful park and gardens, casino (good food), and small inexpensive health club. Good choice.

Hello DRhodes70 and thanks for bookending your trip to the South with a stay with us! The road construction outside us (sewer pipe replacement) is now all finished. Good on you for making use of our various services including our local gym where a casual visit which is usually $15 is only $5 for our guests! Yes, you did indeed make a good choice!

We started our 5 week visit to NZ here and were not disappointed. After a long journey the team here were just excellent. They provided lots of local information as well as help/ direction as to what to do and see in the time we had in Chch. The room was spotlessly clean, of good size and very comfortable. TV and wifi worked well, as well as the good value laundry facilities. Well done for a smooth and hassle free stay - thoroughly deserving of its high marks.

Stayed here at the start and end of our NZ holiday. Experienced two different classes of accommodation and found both to be of a high standard.
The rooms are a generous size with adequate storage and either leather chairs or a settee which allowed proper relaxation in these quiet rooms. Rooms have a kitchenette with crocks and utensils that were without blemish.
Appreciated the toiletries made from natural ingredients (not chemical soap) and the general commitment to operating a green and sustainable business.
Hosts extremely helpful and knowledgeable which contributed significantly to our stay.
Highly Recommended

Hello PeterRainman and thanks for the review after staying with us!! Thanks for staying twice, at the start and end of your holiday and thanks for reviewing ...us! The deluxe rooms have leather recliners or settees while the standard rooms just have tub chairs. Our kitchenettes have the microwave, jug and toaster and that is all, as you have so mentioned. Thanks for acknowledging our eco initiatives and that our style of hospitality contributed significantly to your stay in Christchurch!!

You won't be sorry to stay at CentrePoint, lovely people and they think of everything!.
We booked way ahead and when we arrived we had been given an upgrade, wow,. Many thanks. it was a big 2 floor suite with upstairs bedroom. the whole suite was very spacious and spottlesy clean throughout, with all the comforts we needed and a few more.
TV in lounge and upstairs, so you won't miss a thing.

It is well located, but poor Christchurch is a shadow of it's former self, it is such a shame, still an interesting visit. We only stayed one night, but you could live here, it was bigger than our little bungalow at home, really.

Room Tip: I would think they would all be good, but it is on 2 levels, so some people may need/want a ground f...

The first sentence sums up how we aim our hospitality, Thank you for that wonderful compliment Baconbuttie - and what a great nickname! The free upgrade, great to see you could enjoy it and thanks for teaching us the real meaning of bungalow! Christchurch is battered after the quakes but it is still a place to come, visit and stay as you have attested to. Thanks for the review.

The motel was in an excellent position for seeing central Christchurch or should we say what is left of Christchurch after the 2011 earthquake. The proprietor and his wife were extremely helpful with regard what there was to see and what was the best place to visit for more information on what Christchurch went through, what it is going through and what is their vision for the future. The proprietor was only too pleased to fill us in on their own experience and how the face of their neighbourhood has changed. They were only too happy to book any outside service anyone wanted which was done very efficiently. Each unit was well appointed, clean and spacious. It was just the little things that made the motel ambience good.

Room Tip: Room 3 looked tucked away but I am sure it was just as good as the rest of them. The motel was on 2...

Hello Rose D and thank you for the review in which you mentioned that we were in a great place to see the city - yes we are close to the city centre! The proprietor is myself, Jeff and my wife is Naomi and we are glad you took the time to talk to us and see what Christchurch was all about after the quakes. Great to see you liked our style of hospitality, yes it is the little things that count!
You have mentioned room 3 which was not in service due to a delayed quake repair issue when you stayed with us but yes it is quietly tucked away in the corner and is its own little area of magic!
