City Central Motel Apartments, Christchurch
Great value in the city center.
This was the perfect place to stay near the center of town and comfortable for a family of 5. The owners were helpful and the kitchenette handy.

Nice place to stay. Was tidy and cleaned each day. The water pressure was the only bad thing about the room.

City Central Motel Apartments, Christchurch
This motel was more than adequate. Not particularly flash but for the price it was fine. Very accomodating patron who let me in after hours and fixed a window latch immidiately when it broke. Comfortable bed, quiet with double glazing, clean. Maybe an extra blanket in case you need one.
