Colombo in the City, Christchurch
A Good Value
We were happy with our choice of hotels. This is a small motel, just blocks away from the central area to be quiet, but close enough to walk to the attractions. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. A kitchenette in the living area gave us good options for our meals. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Christchurch Hotel
Very nice, clean motel with a kitchenette and very large rooms. This unit had two bedrooms, more than we needed but we were pleased to have the upgrade. Everything was updated we would definitely recommend it.
