Lovely room, everything you could need, late night arrival details explained well and made very easy. Sadly wifi not working on arrival but sorted by early morning. Early departure meant no chance to sample breakfast !, This was not my first choice of hotel, but more central ones already booked due to event in Christchurch.

Hello Jackie M and thanks for staying with us and for the review. Just mentioned the late night arrival process in the previous review reply and how it works well for those arriving after the office has closed at 9pm. Thanks for backing me up with your comments on just how easy it is! Oops on the wifi, I had... More

We arrived here after 10.00pm for a 2 nights stay. The owners immediately assisted us to settle in. The rooms are very comfortable and it is an easy short walk to town and many attractive breakfast and dinner options. The support of the owners was very much appreciated. We would unhesitatingly stay there again. Thanks Jeff and Naomi.

Hello Halcyon702 and many thanks for the review. Yes! If we still have the office open later than the usual office hours of till 9pm, we are able to do just that!

We had a great experience in our stay with Jeff and Naomi at CenterPoint. Jeff was extremely cordial and helpful at check in and all during our stay, providing restaurant and sightseeing suggestions and airport transfer. The motel and our room was clean, modern and well-appointed, and the location is very convenient. We highly recommend!

My daughter and I were upgraded to a one-bedroom unit which gave us AMPLE space!

My wife and I stayed here with another couple for two nights. Jeff was very helpful when we checked in giving restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. He happily made a dinner reservation for us that night at a nearby Burmese restaurant that we all enjoyed.

We stayed two nights in the Colombo as part of our four week road trip around New Zealand. Very comfortable, well appointed and in the middle of Christchurch.

We stayed our last night at CentrePoint and was impressed with the service and the room. We had everything we needed and the staff were extremely helpful. As we were not going to the airport until late in the afternoon we were offered to park our car at the hotel while we enjoyed Christchurch. I would recommend this hotel.

Nice, clean rooms. Furnished well. Only issue was the slight smell, almost like urine, though I think it's the type of cleaning products used and you don't notice it after awhile.Massive,comfy bed. Sky tv was a great bonus. Would totally stay again!
