This is a small, quiet, tastefully furnished motel with generously-sized suites and excellent amenities (including kitchenettes) providing very good value accommodation within easy strolling distance of everything you will want to...

Great motel. Colombo in the City is very close to Forte Hospital. It is a restful place to return to recover from surgery and hospital before flying home. Comfortable beds and a quiet room. Easy and close to Forte Hospital for caregivers.

We have stayed here three times now. It is a very well run motel with quality furniture and fittings. Handy to the city but a good quiet place to sleep in. Very clean and tidy. Plenty of interesting restaurants nearby.

Couldn't ask for much else from this place. The motel is centrally located, clean, run by friendly staff, good parking area, and was pretty much all that we needed during our 3 day stay in Christchurch. Super comfy and spacious units, which made us feel like we were coming back home at the end of each day.
