We spent two nights in City Central Motel Apartments and were very satisfied with the central location and very friendly service of the motel. If we have the possibility to come back to Christchurch we will also return to City Central Motel. The only problem is that New Zealand is so far away from Finland ( on the opposite site...

If you are unsure about where to stay when in Christchurch, then I recommend you look into City Central Motel Apartments. We stayed at City Central Motel Apartments for 3 nights. I don't believe you will find better value for money - but that's not the only reason to stay - their customer service went over and above our expetations....

We chose this motel for its proximity to the airport and central christchurch. It is an ideal place to stay overnight after a long flight or even for a few days to explore Christchurch. The apartments are clean and fully equiped and well managed by friendly staff. The walk into christchurch is a very pleasant 5-10mins with plenty of eateries...

We received a very warm welcome from Chris and Christine, even being met off the train by a shuttle driver bearing our name on a board! We also received a warm welcome from their puppy. The room was comfortable and remarkably quiet thanks to heavy double-glazed sliding doors. It was only a short walk into the very centre of Christchurch...

The housekeeping is 4* level (immaculate, clean crisp bedding etc.). Although geared to travellers with a car it is an easy 10-15 minutes walk to the InterCity bus stop & CBD. The optional continental breakfast at $10 is convenient. The owner Chris is very willing to make arrangements for the free shuttle to the train station or anything else you...

The word "motel" tends to have a certain connotation here in the states, so we weren't entirely sure what we'd be getting here, but the great reviews on TripAdvisor gave me confidence I made the right choice. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your room, I'm sure there are more luxurious places elsewhere with more ambiance,...

My girlfriend and I stayed there for just a night as we weren't happy with a campervan we'd picked up and were going to swap the next day. Chris was very friendly and kindly gave us the free use of his phone when our camper wouldn't start the following day! My girlfriend liked their cute puppy, but for anyone concerned...

We stayed at City Central for 1 night on our way from Christchurch to Queentown and 1 night on our way back. Chris was quite happy to match a cheaper advertised rate I had found which we were very appreciative of. Pros: own parking space, walking distance for breakfast places, electric blankets in bed, great bedding, comfortable bed, great tv,...

We arrived very late and had forgotten to bring the phone number, so could not ring on the way to get late-entry details. On arrival, we phoned the after hours number and were still met with a friendly response! The rooms are well-thought-out. We had four of us in a room, but since we were out all day, there was...

for the price we paid for two night accomodation we were very impressed. The bathroom was a little small, but very clean. Nice large flat screen television as well. Hosts were also very friendly. Takes about 15-20 minutes to walk into the city.
