In a land of very good motels this one is really out of the box: unusually large room (and bed), spotlessly clean, wonderfully comfortable furniture, very well located and a warm helpful welcome. Well worth seeking out.More

Wow thank you this is our best advertising.
In short it was faultless, perfect location in a quiet street at night rather than the busy road 200 meters away, close to the city, so multiple restaurants and a short stroll back to cap off a day, bed very comfy, choice of pillow, everything you need to cook for yourself, lovely big leather chairs to relax in and watch TV. Bathroom had everything supplied
The unit was clean
Very good value. We will be back.
Always appreciate repeat guests. Glad you enjoyed as we are only as good as our reviews and it is all about location location location.
I was llooking for a good value that was walking distance to town.
This was just ok.
Close to town, easy to find with a kitchenette that was great for morning coffee.
GREAT water pressure in the shower!
However, the "king" size bed was two twins together. NOrmally that would be fine however, the connection bar was not padded and make it impossible to sleep on the entire bed.
Entry was a large sliding glass door which took up one entire wall. I was on the ground floor and couldn't open the curtains when I was in my room.
Housekeeping came early in the morning so I couldn't lounge.
THere was no way to hang a DND sign.
For the price of NZ$117 I wish I had booked different accommodation.
Stayed 2 nights to attend a special event and was pleased it was exactly as promoted. Nicely furnished and convenient location. Probably one of smallest tvs in such a large room and took ages for wall heater to warm the room as you couldn't leave it on without room access card in place so wasn't warm if you went out.
The coloured coverlet at foot of bed had stains on underside so removed it for spare blanket from wardrobe. Also wins the award for the hardest pillows ever.. Think they were either feather or rubber but could've killed someone if you threw it at them!
Still would stay here again.
The team at Columbo in the City are very friendly and helpful. My room was spacious, well appointed and quite cozy. I spent four nights at this property and would not hesitate to return on my next visit to Christchurch. The motel is located in close walking distance to many fine restaurants in the CBD.
Thanks see you again sometime. We always say it is the best location in town.
I had a reservation through Agoda which apparently resulted in this property being overbooked. The Colombo cancelled the reservation but apparently neglected to inform Agoda and return the money and Agoda won’t refund the money because they are treating it as if I had cancelled the reservation, which I did not.
I can’t review the actual property, which looked fine as I walked past it, because they cancelled my reservation but kept the money. Agoda is not a treat to deal with either.
