“Great motel!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Spent the last 2 days of our 2-weeks NZ trip in Colombo. The motel was situated on a quiet street yet near to the city centre. Despite being on the ground floor where the carpark is, quality rest wasn't compromised. Rooms were huge and everything was clean. Toilet was also perfect for my husband who's in a wheelchair. There's a small little kitchen but there's no stove provided, so we were a little disappointed for not being able do some simple cooking.

Location is good, we may be able to walk to the old city centre but we chosen to drive instead. Jeff is a great host and ensured that we had all info we needed to tour around Christchurch. They have prepared a 'survival' guide, listing down a wide range of restaurants/supermarkets and any other possible info that we may need, all properly indicated with address and the provided map - thumbs up for the effort!

Hello there lavend3rmist and thanks for the review after finishing off your NZ trip with 2 nights with us. Thanks for the thumbs up, great to see you appreciated our style of hospitality and made the most of it to get the most out of your visit to Christchurch. Thanks for mentioning that your husband is in a wheelchair and that you found the room etc. to be of an acceptable standard. It's important to us that disabled guests also have a comfortable stay. And yes, the kitchenette does not have a hotplate, just the microwave which is mentioned on the website.

My booking was based on reviews on Trip Advisor. Meeting Naomi at Reception on check in was pleasant, she offered a wealth of knowledge of the area for attractions and places to eat/visit.

The rooms are large, spacious and offer all the amenities required.

I know where I will be staying when I am back in Christchurch!

I have stayed here for business twice. It is a conveniently located, modern motel near the centre of Christchurch, and within walking distance of restaurants and cafe's. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, and the bathroom has a heated towel rail which is a nice touch.
Jeff and Naomi were the perfect hosts, they know Christchurch well, and were able to answer any questions about the region, and also had informative maps at your disposal.
I will be returning to Christchurch later this year, and will definitely stay at the CentrePoint on Colombo. I highly reccommend this motel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet,clean and comfortable.

I had a fantastic stay. Bed the most comfortable one I have slept in at a motel.
Fantastic to have a television in the bedroom. Well serviced and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
Well located and close to lots of great restaurants.

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed a night and were delighted with the rooms we had. The units are clean and airy with very comfortable beds. I have not really seen around the city for a year or more and was somewhat moved as I drove through to see all 7 sites empty where mat workplace formerly stood. I reflected on the special memories of those times. It is great to see businesses like Centrepoint continuing with outstanding service through the continuing difficulties that Christchurch faces. Thank you. We will certainly recommend you to friends visiting Chrictchurch.

Hi Marg22 and thanks for the review. Great to see you loved our 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit and the various facilities in it. Yes, we are battling through the post quake uncertainty of running a motel in the city centre and really appreciate it when we get kind words like this from our guests. Thank you. And thank you for the recommendation!

Stayed here at the end of our NZ trip. One of the best motels we stayed in during our entire holiday.
Very comfortable rooms, well appointed.
Good location to the city centre which needs to be seen to appreciate the destruction caused by the earthquakes.

Staff were very helpful and their map of the area invaluable.
Highly recommended and would stay again!

Hello Mike8516 and thanks for taking the time to review our accommodation option. Thanks for putting us up there as one of the best motels you've stayed in during your entire holiday - that's quite an accolade to get but since it was your last stay in NZ I guess you are well placed to judge. Great to see you loiked the rooms and also where we are in the city - just close enough to easily walk to town but far enough away to be right and ready after the quakes! Good to see you liked our local area info - we have found post quake its important to get the latest info out there so visitors to Christchurch can get the most out of their stay here Saying you'll stay again - magic!.

This motel has nice rooms and a great location but what makes it really stand out is the helpfulness of the managers, Jeff and Naomi. They will make time to help you find whatever you are looking for. Ask for the special list of restaurants they have compiled.

Hello there LarryKSanJose and thanks for the review after staying with us, bookending your South Island holiday. Great that you were comfortable coming back to us at the end of your holiday after your initial stay - that's one of the best compliments we can get. Yes, we do take pride in helping people find just what they are after - doesn't mean we know absolutely everything, we do use google and sometimes we are not 100% correct, but we will go the extra mile to hopefully help people!
