              The staff were very helpful. We came into town very late and then room was ready for us with a note to enjoy a good night's sleep and checkin the next morning when we awoke.

            • Couple
              7.0

              It was clean and reasonably priced, average decor and comfort, friendly staff.

              internet access not free. Some spurious "green"claims (eco friendly lighting recycled paper etc.) obviously not correct- a minor point.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The management team are outstanding in their customer care. I have never encountered anything like it and in these difficult times for Christchurch, their attitude, outlook and work ethic are genuinely inspirational.

              We booked the City Center Motel before the Feb earthquake in CHCH.It was with some apprehension that we maintained the booking with the presence of aftershocks in the area.In the interim, we asked for and were assigned a ground floor room.The rooms, are large, comfortable, well appointed.I would recommend this otel to anyone visiting CHCH. The single biggest assets are the charming ladies running this facility.

            • Couple
              10.0

              The motel staff was very friendly and greatly helpful. When I inquired about a specific cuisine around town, she opened up a phone book and found 4 restaurants nearby and provided directions to each. The 2 bedroom suite was very nice, roomy and clean. It was just a block away from the Central Business District, which was very convenient. However, we went a couple weeks after the big earthquake, so CBD was closed off. But we'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

              Easy to find, not far from the airport. Close to the city, a very friendly place to stay.

              Tina and Mary are the best! We will be recommending City Centre to all of our friends and our travel agent.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is great with a bar on the ground floor.

              Noise from the street was very loud and there was additional noise coming from the bathroom wall relative to water pressure.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The motel is pristine. Our unit was light and airy and had everything we needed. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Can't recommend this motel enough!!!

              The motel owners Tina & Mary were very helpful friendly and obliging. Very handy for Christchurch City Centre.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The care & attention paid to us by the owners was exceptional. I had a case mislaid by the airline and they kept chasing it up on my behalf without me asking them to and ensured it was delivered to the hotel before we left. Also my wife mentioned in conversation with them how much she liked fresh fruit and on the next 2 days for breakfast they insisted on providing us with freshly picked strawberries, blueberries and cherries from their own personal stock despite them not being part of the official breakfast menu. Nothing was too much for them to ensure our stay was perfect. I have never encountered such caring and friendly service at anywhere else I have stayed and I have travelled extensively across the globe.

              The staff was extremely helpful. The manager volunteered to make a long distance call at no charge to help with a reservation we had.

              The staff (owners?) were knowledgable, friendly, helpful, interested and interesting. The gardens were beautiful, the room comfortable and very central.

              Friendly and helpful staff (hi Tina! :) ), nice welcome gift of milk and snacks, great room service daily, close proximity to city, nice quiet and clean surroundings, restful sleep, ample space in room
