Finding good accommodation in Christchurch was a hard task, but we got there with Centrepoint. Room for 5 was great, 2 spacious bedrooms and a comfy lounge - all very nicely done, tasteful and comfortable.

Hello SteveP1874 and thanks for the review! It's always cool to get a review from a senior contributor. Yes! You travelled with family but you were a grown up family, as opposed to a young family. This room's facilities mean that a grown up family like yourselves can have a comfortable stay as you have attested. Great to see you...

I was pleasantly surprised by CentrePoint on Colombo. It was initially my plan to stay at a B&B throughout my various stops in the South Island, including Christchurch. However, there were none that was suitable (be it being imposed a min. number of nights, availability, etc), which led me to find CentrePoint. I’m extremely pleased to have made the decision...

Very pleasantly surprised when accidentally put on the other side of town from the next mornings meeting. Clean and spacious with sky in full so you could pick and choose. Just like being at home and the service from the friendly owners superb. Stay here if you get a chance it's pretty good.
