Reviewed 13 November 2012

We were given a really small room which fit our bed and our luggage - but barely! Wifi is really cheap and quick. Loved the spa bath in the ensuite. Walking distance to the old centre square. Bed was a little uncomfy but service was friendly and helpful. Would recommend a short stay.

We stayed on CentrePoint on our last day in Christchurch before flying home so we weren't looking for anything too fancy.

Hello there Wal7er and thanks for the review. Great to see you were happy with your choice of Christchurch accommodation.

We stayed at Centrepoint on Colombo twice during a recent trip to New Zealand & were very impressed by friendly service & well appointed rooms. Although initially daunting to see work being done on the driveway & carpet strips leading to reception, it was soon apparent that the cleanliness & comfort of the rooms more than compensated. The owners could...

In general terms the place is clean, really spacious and well places in the city. We want walking everywere. The bed was immense and great for our jet lag.
