ChCh a bit of a dump still, but motel worthwhile”

price, location

Don't believe the hype: Christchurch is not ready for tourists. It's a vast wasteland. We just stayed one night - flying straight in from Sydney - and hotfooted it towards Dunedin 24 hours later. The motel was a great introduction to New Zealand - clean, quiet and central. It's an easy drive from the airport (where customs/immigration was startlingly easy). My best memory of ChCh was Pedro's takeaways - the most amazing lamb you will ever eat in your life. It's a quick drive from the motel, grab a bottle of red wine next door to Pedro's, and bring it all back to the motel. Amazing. Beyond that, you can walk the few blocks to the Cathedral area for a quick look around. Even though this site makes it compulsory to recommend something about ChCh, I really wouldn't recommend it at the expense of extra time elsewhere.

Clean, convenient and spacious”

Colombo in the City is a great place to stay in Christchurch. The rooms are very well laid out, with outdoor seating areas available. Location is within walking distance to the casino, good restaurants and downtown. Parking is available and the location is a good starting spot for exploring the Canterbury area. A great value as well.

Motel owner proactive in providing the best servic”

clean and well maintained, with all the basic amenities provided

We stayed at Christchurch just for a night before we flew back to our home country. Initially had difficulty finding the hotel cause the GPS was directing us to roads which were closed due to the clearance works from the 2 major earthquakes. Personally I didnt feel very safe staying in christchurch after witnessing the buildings which has collapsed, especially in the city center. Nevertheless, when we found our hotel...it was already quite late around 8pm. the reception at the hotel was still open but there wasnt anyone there. saw a note pasted on the reception door with my name and i have anticipated this after reading other reviews in tripadvisor. we did receive a call from the caretaker an hour later asking if everything was ok. Pro 1. Lots of information provided about christchurch at the reception and in the room 2. All the basic ammenities are provided, including makeup remover pad ! 3. Had a microwave, boiler and toaster - great for making a simple breakfast 4. The room was clean and well maintained 5. The owner took the initiative to compile the food delivery services available within the vicinity 6. Only took 15mins to reach the airport Cons 1. Funny smell detected in the motel room

Good location, room facilities and service”

service and location

the motel staff is very friendly, he gives directions and ideas on where to get a good restaurant. our room has no kitchenette, and he actually change it for us so that we can cook our own food. the motel is very near to christchurch central( which has blocked the access now), to botanic garden(ard20 mins) and casino(less than 10 mins). the room is very clean and big.

Very comfortable stay in Christchurch. ”

We stayed at Colombo in the City before and after a tour of the South Island. The hotel is close to public transportation and the City Centre. The rooms we had were large, clean and very comfortable. The rooms have small kitchenettes which is helpful. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is a very good place to stay in Christchurch.
