We spent one night at Centrepoint on Columbo in Christchurch and had a great experience. After over a week in New Zealand this motel was much better value for money than some places we have stayed. The gentleman at reception could not have been more helpful and provided us a map and a list of restaurants etc that was very comprehensive. Everything was in walking distance. We definitely recommend Centrepoint to anyone considering a trip to Christchurch.

A place to sleep

Pros: We did like the fact that the room included a kitchenette which we used for breakfast.
Cons: The owner of the hotel did not do a good job of selling Christchurch; it was better than he painted it.
Location: Go Punting on the Avon and check out the cool kids' playground.
While the room was not cramped, there was nothing spectacular about the room. It had the basics and was comfortable. The hotel was a 10 minute walk to the CBD. The choices of restaurants was small right around the motet, so eating in the CBD is recommended.

This is a very nice motel with superb service. The gentleman at desk and his wife had many great ideas of what to see and do in Christchurch. Was also great location for last day of our trip to NZ, as it is easy access to airport.

Location: There was a short walk from Centrepoint into the city centre and to a marvelous park recommended at reception. Good for a teenager.
The friendly welcome at check-in was lovely, as was the informative details of nearby attractions. As usual, my experience was of New Zealanders wanting visitors to enjoy their stay and all that is on offer. We appreciated the upgrade and wished we could have stayed longer in the spacious 1-bedroom apartment. Great facilities.

Pros: Cleanliness
