Palikir, Micronesia
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This hotel received excellent reviews so we stayed one night while transiting through Christchurch. We found the room to be quite dark and also a little small compared to many of the other places we stayed in New Zealand. The owners were friendly and helpful. It is centrally located. While there was little to complain about it seemed a little...

Thanks for the "central and friendly" title Simon826 after staying with us. We are central and we are friendly so great to see you have found that to be worthy of your review title. Not sure just what room you stayed in but, being a Heart of Christchurch motel, it could be said that some of our rooms are smaller...

When Jeff checked us into our room at Centre Point, he spent a good 20 minutes chatting with us, giving us good suggestions of things to see and do and providing excellent directions. Our room was large, clean and well appointed. Great location to walk into the center city. We'd go back again when in Christ Church. Really enjoyed the...

We were very happy with our overnight stay at the CentrePoint on Colombo motel in Christchurch. The room had all we needed and location was great. A good place to relax after our long flight before setting off on our South Island tour. Recommended!

Reviewed 19 November 2013

This little gem is conveniently located and yet, unlike the Novotel Hotel, you are not immediately surrounded by the earthquake devastation that consumes so much of Christchurch more than two years after the disaster. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Even with a big king size bed, kitchenette and two lounge chairs we still felt like we had plenty...

Centrepoint1, Owner at CentrePoint on Colombo Motel, responded to this review

Hello there 571Roxanne and thanks for takling the time to review us! Yes, we are just so lucky that our area of town (even though we are right in the city centre) was not visited by the devastation just a block away. Great to see you loved your room, and our style of service and felt that you had good...

Lovely place, great people and an amazing atmosphere. The only place I will stay in Christchurch. I always look forward to my business trips because I know when I stay at the centrepoint and that I will have a home away from home. I will always stay with Jeff and Naomi even if they don't want me to :-))

Hello Eliot S and welcome to TripAdvisor! Thanks for the review, and thanks for recognising the atmosphere we share with many of our guests. As much as possible we like to bring the office banter down to a friendly level so that guests can relax - if they want to of course! It's great to see that we can accommodate...

This motel is a short walk into the city centre and run by very nice people who were friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and clean. The motel is a little dated but very comfortable. We didn't have the breakfasts as we wanted to walk into the city in the morning . There was plenty of choice in the...

We chose CentrePoint on Colombo Motel based on previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We were delightfully rewarded with the warm welcome and always available presence of hosts Jeff & Naomi, the very clean sheets, clean and environmentally friendly rooms. The "green" touches were very evident from providing boxes for recycling materials to the toiletries. We love the little touches like providing...

Hello there geoffsbutler and thanks for staying and reviewing us. Love the comment about dingy roadside dives in B-movies and great to see you have mentioned it. Yes!
