We arrived late into Christchurch and stayed here overnight before picking up our campervan the next morning - it was ideal. The room was clean, it was well located and the owners/managers were really friendly/helpful.

An easy walk to all that Christchurch offers and an accommodation option that easily satisfied the needs of two older teenagers and their parents. Comfy beds, and the really nice and ultra clean interiors made the stay a pleasure. The friendly management team ensured that our every need was met.

My family stayed at the City Central Motel for 2 nights during our October holiday in New Zealand. The accommodation was fantastic, spotless and modern. The kitchen had a range of good quality equipment and Chris was most helpful in providing us with extra appliances when needed. Parking outside the unit and the city a short walk away made City...
