Since the awful earthquake, Christchurch is still in recovery. Hence there is limited accommodation in the centre but the Centrepoint is only a 10 or 15 minute walk into the centre. We booked directly and had a mezzanine room. Jeff and Naomi were great hosts and clearly love Christchurch. Hope to stay here again one day to see how the...

We stayed a total of 6 nights at the Centrepoint over two stays while in New Zealand. The motel is only a short walk to the CBD and many sights, and there are plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Checkin and other dealings with the front desk were friendly and helpful. We found the rooms to be spacious...

This motel is well situated within the city of Christchurch and easily accessible from the airport. We were allocated a 2 bedroom family room which was well appointed and ideal for 2 couples allowing privacy with each room having a en suite. The living area was very well stocked and comfortable.

Jeff and Naomi give every visitor the best experience of Christchurch. For us this included pre-stay emails, tips for airport access, recommendations for restaurants and sites to see (which was challenging due to Christmas/New Year lull), and finally directions for the best drive to Queenstown. I hope to return in a few years to see the rebuilding efforts and staying...

Just a hunch, but I think the people who have lived in Christchurch since before the earthquake give more thought to being prepared than your average person. Certainly, this hotel demonstrated that a lot of energy was put into every detail. There're was a king size bed, bathroom with shelf space, nice little kitchen with lots of little touches like...

We arrived early to a warm reception from Naomi; she provided detailed recommendations for the length of our stay in Christchurch. Location is great: 15 minute drive from the airport and an easy walk to the city center. Our room was clean and quiet.

Hello JClower and thanks for the review. Great to hear Naomi did a great job providing you the info needed to get the most out of your time in Christchurch. Great to hear you loved the room too.

The city is under reconstruction - which is a bit tough to navigate as a walker. But Jeff and Naomi provided lots of helpful advice. I was traveling on my own and their hospitality was much appreciated. The Botanical Gardens was the height of my visit and it was an easy walk from the hotel.

Hi Carol R and thanks for the review after staying with us before heading off on the train! Great that you made the most of the info we offer. Yes the city is being rebuilt but is is still a grid system and so not too bad. It's probably all the roadworks as streets are bettered for the future of...

This is our fifth time staying here and we still love it. Clean, friendly staff, good location and off-street free carparking right outside- perfect for our visits to Christchurch. We especially love the split level rooms - for just a little extra you get a line downstairs and generous bedroom on the second floor. Very nice. Sadly the owners have...

Hi Kiwi-1976 and thanks for another review - what we like about this is that you are a constant litmus test for us and lets us know that we are consistently getting the things you like right. Been great having you to stay so often!

John and Naomi were welcoming and helpful. Clear direction, maps of places of interest and suggestions on dinning -very useful. The apartment was clean and tidy as expected. They are trying to be environmental consciousness and gave clear instructions on how to participate which made it easy. Most things in walking distance or there is a great public transport system....
