Four ladies travelled to Christchurch to a concert we have talked about going to for many years, the choice we had was seeing Il Divo in Christchurch or Auckland. Christchurch won and we were assisted in having a memorable weekend by Christine ringing around the limosine companies to arrange to pick us up from the airport and drive us around...

We reserved 3 different room types. All rooms were very new, clean and nice including all useful facilities in the rooms. However, in one room, we didn't like the shower area which had only curtain, but no wall/edge to protect water spreading. It will be great if there is a heater in the bathroom - too cool in the bathroom....

We spent two nights in City Central Motel Apartments and were very satisfied with the central location and very friendly service of the motel. If we have the possibility to come back to Christchurch we will also return to City Central Motel. The only problem is that New Zealand is so far away from Finland ( on the opposite site...

If you are unsure about where to stay when in Christchurch, then I recommend you look into City Central Motel Apartments. We stayed at City Central Motel Apartments for 3 nights. I don't believe you will find better value for money - but that's not the only reason to stay - their customer service went over and above our expetations....

We chose this motel for its proximity to the airport and central christchurch. It is an ideal place to stay overnight after a long flight or even for a few days to explore Christchurch. The apartments are clean and fully equiped and well managed by friendly staff. The walk into christchurch is a very pleasant 5-10mins with plenty of eateries...

We received a very warm welcome from Chris and Christine, even being met off the train by a shuttle driver bearing our name on a board! We also received a warm welcome from their puppy. The room was comfortable and remarkably quiet thanks to heavy double-glazed sliding doors. It was only a short walk into the very centre of Christchurch...

The housekeeping is 4* level (immaculate, clean crisp bedding etc.). Although geared to travellers with a car it is an easy 10-15 minutes walk to the InterCity bus stop & CBD. The optional continental breakfast at $10 is convenient. The owner Chris is very willing to make arrangements for the free shuttle to the train station or anything else you...

The word "motel" tends to have a certain connotation here in the states, so we weren't entirely sure what we'd be getting here, but the great reviews on TripAdvisor gave me confidence I made the right choice. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your room, I'm sure there are more luxurious places elsewhere with more ambiance,...

My girlfriend and I stayed there for just a night as we weren't happy with a campervan we'd picked up and were going to swap the next day. Chris was very friendly and kindly gave us the free use of his phone when our camper wouldn't start the following day! My girlfriend liked their cute puppy, but for anyone concerned...
