“Lovely Property, Great Owners”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The motel was clean and well-cared for, and nicely laid out. I found my room very quiet, warm and comfortable, exactly as advertised. The owners were all absolutely lovely and very helpful in both furnishing me with maps and information about local shops/restaurants. Very pleasant to talk to and extremely helpful. The internet allowance is very generous, and worked perfectly for me. Very pleased with this motel and will happily stay here again in future.

Hello goodbyepuckpie and thanks for the review after being in Christchurch for something close to your TA name! Great to see you found your room to be as advertised and that you appreciated and made the most of our style of hospitality. We are always up for a friendly chat with those who have a few minutes, one of the things that makes the job fun! See you next time there is reason for you to come to Christchurch!

We choose this motel on the trip advisor because of its high rating.We were put in a room for the disabled.We found this very depressing and the decor was very dull.The unit was geared for energy saving which I thought compromised any kind of luxury.We stayed in various motels on our travels around the South Island and this one we rated as the worst.

I have never been more flabbergasted by a reviewer’s comments. Does someone referring to a room as being “for the disabled” and then linking this directly with being “very depressing” show that even though disabled people are fully accepted as a valuable part of our society, there are still people who just don’t get it?
I have no further comment.

We arrived late in the drizzly rain. Tired after a protracted flight. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. He provided us with a very handy map of what was what nearby, including restaurants. Our room was toasty warm. Highly recommended.

Hello monikacanberra and thanks for taking the time to review us. Can't do much about the rain but can try real hard to make the sun shine through those clouds! Great that you liked our welcome which (unless we have a brain fade) in the winter time includes a heated room (or an airconditioned one in the heat of summer) a cheerful chat and plenty of information, that's our style of hospitality!

Hi poppylover and thanks you for the review. Your room had a king bed but others upstairs have superking as well. Same downstairs too actually - in fact we only have king or superking beds! (unless its a single bed) Great to see you appreciated our winter pricing and found we had plenty of restaurants close by! And yes, the bus right outside links through the Central (bus) Station to all areas of Christchurch.

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.
