Fabulous 8.6 From 157 reviews

Good 6.0
The rooms could do with an upgrade. Otherwise the room was acceptable.

Please upgrade your bedding.
Good location and I was pleased to be located at the back of the property away from the street noise. However, the pillows were awful - I went and bought my own. The bed was also soft and not overly supportive or comfortable ( it would be ok if you’re sleeping alone). Being in a ground unit we also experienced noise from the above unit (footsteps, water running etc).

Spacious Comfy Rooms, Clean, Convenient
Around the mid-point in our trip, we decided to stay in Christchurch a few days to relax and see our friends in the area. City Centre Motel seemed to have all the amenities we wanted, and their photos and descriptions lived up to the actual experience! The Motel is right in the middle of the city, an easy drive to any of the tourist site and just down the road from the Botanical Gardens, and restaurants. They have free parking, which was conveniently on the first level. Check-in was a snap, with a friendly guest clerk who explained the area and facilities. We needed to do laundry here, which was near our room; the desk provided the change we needed. The rooms are apartments; a kitchenette, dining table, sofa, large comfy bed, TV stand, and spacious bathroom with shower. We loved being here to unwind, repack our things, and get long, quiet sleeps. The rooms were clean, modern, and fresh. They offered everything you'd need in the kitchen for cooking or longer stays. The grounds are also kept nice. We would definitely stay here again!
