The accommodation was basic and clean and the location to the city centre good. The lack of air con meant the room was hot and stuffy. The noise from passing traffic disturbed our sleep on numerous occasions throughout the night. One tired, flat pillow was not great for sleeping on and meant watching TV from the bed was very uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Upstairs might help with noise from people coming and going through the night.

Owner/operators with English as a second language, therefore oral commuication difficult and specific requirements lost in translation. Units are revamped 1970's style, basic and accepatble for one/two nights. The Motel's location near Latimer Square is its best asset

Room Tip: units on the ground floor hear all first floor movements. Do not get a unit near the old style stairwells.

Please note change of ownership 1 month ago may have changed these appartments. Now run by a Chinese couple with poor English skills. They were unable to help us with local information past the basics which we can get from a guidebook. There were also problems with our booking, and they handled this by speaking loudly In Chinese to each other, rather than in English to me, the paying customer.
There were also beers go missing from our room during cleaning mid way through our stay. When we complained, these were located in the office fridge...so clearly had not been thrown out as rubbish. Very strange.
I think if they market to a Chinese clientele, and I am sure this will work better.
As appartments they have very basic self catering facilities. Really only breakfast facilities.
They were central and clean, but I think much better can be found in other parts of Christchurch. We would stay in merrivale area next time.

Thank you for taking the time reviewing our motel. We are glad you enjoyed the kitchen facilities here. We are sorry about the chaos as we just took over the business. And sorry again for the missing beer, I have investigated that it is the housekeeping people's mistake for the missing beers. Thank you for your suggestions. We are currently updating our facilities. We will keep going to provide better services for all our customers. Yous sincerely, City Central Motel

Had an excellent 2 nights in a two bedroom unit, though it had little natural light. It was quiet but close to the central areas. Good furnishings and large shared table and chairs on balcony.

WiFi was an issue for some of the party, also weak shower over the bath.

Motel is located in a walkable distance from the town centre, half an hour by car from the airport. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff OK. Parking on the yard. No restaurants nearby. Higher price than value, but OK place to stay.
