City Centre Motel, Christchurch
2 nights in Christchurch
Excellent place to stay when visiting Christchurch, walking distance to city center. Clean spacious room, good facilities, free parking, only the WiFi reception was a bit lacking, but apart from that, good place to stay.

Ok location. The room and motel was very run down/old. It was very clean. People at checkin was very nice.

Warm comfortable room onacold winter day.
Hotel was better than expected. Able to warm the room up quickly on a cold winter day, which can't be said about many NZ hotels. Front desk staff were very helpful.

City Centre Motel, Christchurch
Affordable gem!
I so appreciated Reception's helpfulness with all our needs. The property eas very clean, pleasant, quiet and comfortable. It was convenient to walking in the city and less than a block to one of the best Indian food I have ever eaten (Himalaya) - don't miss the lamb chops. Near other very good restaurants as well. Try Three Cows on Victoria street. Loved the tub for a hot soak after several days hiking in Abel Tasman Park. With roses in the garden and small patios or balconies this small motel is a real gem!

City Centre Motel, Christchurch
Nice motel near city center, great wifi!
We originally booked the 1 bedroom apartment, for us it was too big and our love for a TV in the bedroom made it not the right room for us. A quick call to and working with the manager and we were in a smaller room with a great TV. The hotel was very nice, good distance to city center and very quiet. The wifi was great, fast and the front desk gave you more if you needed(we did).
