We stayed at the Colombo on our last night in New Zealand. The room was very clean and roomy. Good size bathroom with strong water pressure and lots of hot water. Our room has a small back patio for some morning air. Great location, walking distance from the heart of town and close to the new hot strip on Victoria Street where we had dinner at the King of Snake (also recommend). The complex was quiet and even with the International Cricket Festivities we had a great nights sleep before our long flight home. We asked for a late check out and even though there were fully booked they were able to accommodate. For what we needed which was not a lot, this was the perfect spot.
The friendliness of the staff and the easy well designed rooms Mattress could have been a bit firmer, but more a personal preference
Nice, clean, apartment, ideally located for access to centre of town, and to major routes for further access out of the city. The hosts went out of their way to provide every bit of assistance they could (without being in the slightest intrusive). Perfect for exploring Christchurch, and its environs.
friendly staff and adequate rooms with all you would need. probably could do with a little updating.
The staff were excellent - very welcoming and genuine in their helpfulness. Coming from the UK, good service is a refreshing change and very much appreciated. A minor comment but I did find the bed a bit soft.
only stayed one night to catch next day flight the self rating 4 stars plus is a bit misleading
The owners were most helpful and very friendly.
Friendliness of owners very helpful No
Courteous and helpful attitude of staff...reception was open at 01:15 when we arrived from the airport. Staff also transferred us free of charge at 06:00 to the nearby railway station.
Much appreciated their effort to provide a King size bed. This is the best place to stay if you're headed for a concert at the cbs arena! Thank you.
Close to shopping and stadium, helpful staff A little stuffy, air con would have been good, and quite noisy with traffic but probably no different at other motels as they generally are on main roads.
very clean.modern and private
Very friendly and helpful owner/staff. Close to railway station with a free shuttle service to/from station, even if it is just for a rail day trip. Shopping centre about a 15 minute walk. Smaller shop closer. Good size unit. Bus stop about 3-5 minute walk.
It was extremely close to the arena, which made it very convenient.
Owners of Motel where extemely helpful and very friendly
Great facilities and friendly staff.
The motel was well positioned and the owners transported us to the railway station the next morning to catch our train.
