“Walking distance to (what's left of) City Centre”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

This is a very well run motel with well equiped apartments situated as close to the 'red zone' as it is possible to stay. Jeff, the owner, is very personable and exceptionally helpful - he can offer advice on where to eat, and what's open. The accommodation offers everything you will need for a comforable stay and is spotlessly clean. Will stay there when we next visit Christchurch.

Hello travelsnobllkley! Thanks for the review after staying with us. Thanks for finding myself personable and for also finding my information useful too. Yes we are very close to the city centre which just isn't quite as big as before. Still things to do there though and if you want to be close then yes this is the place to be! We look forward to seeing you next time and are wrapped that you are comfortable coming back to see us again.

My wife, 2-year old and I just spent 2 nights in Christchurch at the CPoC. Jeff greeted me on arrival with a detailed overview of the city, which is still recovering from the horrible earthquakes. He also provided a long list of recommended restaurants, w/ locations highlighted on a map they put together for their guests. I have truly never experienced hospitality like this before this trip.
The room itself (we got the Centerpoint Suite - 2BR - because other rooms were taken and we wanted a separate BR for our child) was fantastic. A large living room separating 2 nice size BRs. The master has a spa-bath (which we didn't take advantage of other than to give our kid a bath) and a comfortable king bed.
Each room has a space heater and the beds have electric blankets.
The location of the CPoC was great and very convenient; it was relatively easy to get to the center city area, the botanic garden and there's a restaurant serving breakfast right on the corner.
Definitely, DEFINITELY consider the CPoC if you're staying in Christchurch. Big, clean rooms, comfortable beds and a truly guest-oriented approach to doing business are all standard.

Room Tip: Book EARLY as this hotel gets filled quickly!

This motel is in a great location right in the centre of Christchurch. We were given a free upgrade which was great. The owner’s son greeted us on check in and he was extremely helpful, going out of his way to find information for us. The owner had also been in touch prior to our arrival to confirm our arrival arrangements which was a nice touch and he also emailed us after our stay. We had a separate bedroom upstairs and a spacious lounge and kitchen area downstairs. It was extremely clean and spacious. There was a separate laundry facility on site which we used which was great. Free parking is available on site. We didn’t have air conditioning in the upstairs bedroom but did have a large fan; this wasn’t a problem when we were there as it was quite cool in the mornings and evenings but this could be an issue during the hotter months. There was air conditioning downstairs. The Inner City is completely closed off due to the earthquake but many restaurants have re-built and have re-opened.
We ate at a great Indian restaurant, the Himalayas on Colombo, so good that we went back the second night we were in town.
We would also recommend that you visit the Container area where many shops/restaurants have opened in Containers and it really works well!! We also went on the Red Bus tour for an hour around the City. The guys were great fun and extremely informative. It is a great way to see the City and hear about all of the planned developments.

Hi there ValKC3 and thanks for the detailed review. Glad that you liked our inner city location and appreciated the free upgrade! Good to hear our Son did a good job at checking you in, helping you with the info you needed. Just to set the record striaght, we do not have airconditioning in any of our rooms cos Christchurch just doesn't get that hot! Maybe you thought the wall heater was some form of airconditioning. Glad that you liked our guide to the wide range of restaurants that are around the motel and that you ate at our favouriate Indian restaurant 2 nights in a row!
