Reviewed 7 March 2013

Stayed two nights. The place is immaculate and very well run. Easy walk to city centre. Good restaurants five minutes away. I have never seen a laundry room so clean and tidy. Jeff is so helpful. The room was a good size and the bathroom was fine.

Excellent motel very close to what is left of central Christchurch. Clean, spacious, air conditioned and the hosts are as decent as everybody else says. If you have a car with you I don't think you will find anywhere closer to the centre.

Hi bognor and thanks for the review. Yes, all rooms are airconditioned. We have installed high quality units and these are strategically placed to prevent annoying airflows as much as possible. That is right, you don't need a car whne you stay with us, we are close enough to walk to the city centre!

Jeff and Naomi are extremely welcoming, we really enjoyed our stays (3 of them) here. A great service provided by Jeff was organising the airport shuttle to have our room key when we arrived in Christchurch at 11:30pm - no other accommodation does this. He also stored our luggage for us while were off for 5 days doing the Otago...

We stayed here for 2 nights - separated by 1 week as we were touring the South Island. Jeff was extremely welcoming when we first arrived and as our room wasn't ready yet he stored our luggage for us. When we came back he checked us in and showed us around our room. Our luggage was already up in our...

We stayed here on our first two nights in New Zealand and it was the perfect start. Friendly hosts made us feel welcome and looked after our needs. On the second day we enquired about nearby hairdressers and also about the production of The Wind in the Willows that was playing in the botanical gardens. Our host asked us if...

Hi there Treeplanter and thanks for fully enjoying your stay in Christchurch with us. It was great to see that you got fully involved with the summer entertainment even though you had just got off the plane from the other side of the world! I'm sure you had a great trip around NZ and thanks for starting it with us!

Jeff was extremely a joy to talk with. He gave great advise on where to eat and helped us re navigate our trip when flooding washed-out a west coast highway we had planned on traveling on. Rooms are nice and clean, reasonable priced wi-fi, they give you cookies! Walking from the motel to area places is quite easy.

Great to hear that you enjoyed having a chat with me, Jeff. I always enjoy a good chat. Yes, the road was washed out and it required renavigation but we were able to get you and others ready for a longer than usual trip. But at least you knew what to do, where to go and what you were up...

Walking distance to the center of Chrischurch. Great hosts that have lots of information that they share with you when you first arrive. Maps and places to eat are all given as many of the guide books are now out of date due to the earthquake. We would definately stay here again.

The last few reviewers, in particular aajolly, have covered all the things I wanted to say about Centrepoint on Colombo so I won't go into detail. We were very pleased that we chose to stay here for our two nights in Christchurch and it was a great start to our holiday in NZ.

Hi there bclockie and thanks for the review. I beg to differ with your idea that it "may be noisy" cos we are close to the Red Zone. While demolition is still ongoing, it cannot be heard here at the motel, as is attested by the fact that you did not hear anything and the non existence of any other...
