I chose this hotel because it was close to my conference venue and it had suites which made my life easier with a 10 month old baby
The hotel is right opposite the cathedral so is centrally located. If you haven't been to Christchurch since the earthquake then you need for be away it's still in the rebuild stage, is very quiet and quite deserted at night but that is to be expected
The rooms were large with a bedroom and bathroom upstairs in the mezzanine and a large lounge dining and kitchen downstairs. Fully equipped kitchen and full size fridge. Great facilities and a crazy selection of teas and plunger coffee included. Portacot provided at no cost too which was nice
The most equipped gym I have ever seen in a hotel, and I believe community have access to it and a 25m swimming pool, spa and sauna. Really wish I had been able to use these more.
You can park at the hotel for $25, directly across the road for $8 per 24 hours or a block down the road towards Latimer square there was plenty of free parking on the side of the road.
The staff member at checkin was lovely and even helped me carry my bag to my room as I was carrying the baby and other bags. She even rang and gave me a quick reminder that I would need to move my car to a park somewhere as directly in front of the hotel it's only a 5 minute check in zone
Very happy with the service and facilities and would definitely stay here again!

We arrived on an early flight into Chch and made most welcome by reception. Our bags were kept behind the counter for an hour or so until our room was ready, so we headed off on foot to see how Chch is changing. We were attending dance workshops each day which were a 15min walk away, perfect location.
The room was light and airy and the bathroom facilities great, with excellent lighting for putting on make-up etc..
On leaving (11:00 checkout), our bags were stowed until collection mid afternoon, for our taxi and return flight. Friendly chatty driver just topped off our stay.

We used this hotel twice on our trip to NZ. We found it very convenient, most everything was within walking distance. It’s very close to the airport as well, using the Super Shuttle service. The reception desk was friendly and helpful. We did use the restaurant for breakfast and dinner one evening when we were tight on time. We were traveling with our college age boys so having two separate bedrooms rooms and a living space was nice so we could spread out. This was extremely helpful on our return since we had four backpacks and heaps of wet equipment from our two week adventure trip! This gave us a chance to regroup and reorganize. It was nice to have laundry facilities before we ventured off to the north island. Highly recommend the Cotswold….
Our stay at the CentrePoint on Colombo Hotel was well above board.
I was greeted by the famous owner Geoff who looked after us with good old fashioned Kiwi Service.
The room was modern, and furnished appropriately. Had a great sleep thanks to the high quality King mattress.
Thank you for the best service in town!
