This is basic hotel/motel accommodation, but the room was tidy, comfortable and quiet enough for our 3 day stay, and suited our purposes just fine ... we arrived via a VERY late flight and didn't get to the motel till well past midnight, but we had advised this with our booking, and kudos to the manager as there was someone still awake to give us our key. Big thanks for that! The office staff were also friendly and helpful with directions and advice on getting about. The furniture and fittings are modest, but functional, as was the small kitchenette. The LCD TV wasn't great quality either, with wiring dangling about the place (a bit of a nightmare with kids!) but had 50 Sky & freeview channels available. The weather was chilly when we were there, so we spent all our time at the motel in the room, but the outdoor areas would benefit from some refurbishment. The motel has ample on-site parking and free Wi-Fi.

Stayed here as I was attending a course at LesMills. Not the best place in the world no flannels or milk. Just missing those little touches you expect to see in a motel. Also found a fake nail beside my bed so makes me think not the cleanest of places.

When my friends and I arrived after check-in, the kitchen was very filthy and dirty; the floor was stained with food from the previous occupants; we had to call management and have someone thoroughly clean the kitchen otherwise we would not have been able to cook our dinner. The 2 bedroom service-type room was basic necessity with clean towels and bedsheets; bath with good running hot water; and automatic dishwasher. There were complimentary instant coffee and tea, however, we provided our own. City Centre was about 2 kilometers from a Pak-N-Save which provided food provisions. Although City Centre Motel was not fully booked, the management seemed to be quite busy with other matters beside guest relations.

I arrived at the end of March looking for somewhere affordable and comfortable for a few nights in Christchurch to do some sightseeing. Upon arrival the room was spacious, clean and had all the basics required. Parking was free and more importantly hassle free unlike at some of the bigger hotel's I've stayed at. Staff were friendly and helped us settle in giving us free fresh milk for tea and coffee (very important) and gave us directions for close by attractions. Overall a good stay that I'd recommend if your just in town to be out of the property for sightseeing. Ohh and Wifi signal was strong and easy to connect to, very important.

Okay so read mixed reviews on this place but decided to make my own opinion and reasonably happy I did.

Location was great, rooms I wouldn't say are 'stylish' more basic than anything but I was happy with my stay. Customer service was 10/10, but still ok. Wifi 5/10 - not the best, not the worse. They also describe on there outside sign that it's a quiet accommodation - again it wasn't party party super loud but it was hardly quiet. Rooms could do with a revamp , however I overall I would stay again.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled solo
