We arrived in bright sunshine, (our first stop in South Island) and thought the gardens, flowers and birds were a delight. Unfortunately the weather was about to change so no chance to use the swimming pool. After using the guest laundry (2$ each for wash and dry) we had a welcome coffee in the Brasserie restaurant where we also eat... More

This is a beautiful hotel, with a medieval theme but not at all tacky. It was very quiet despite being on a busy main road. The reception area is very nice and staff very friendly. The layout of the hotel is lovely with pools, plants, gardens and small fountains. We had a lovely ground floor room, with good lighting. The... More

They say you can judge a good hotel by the number of buckets that they deploy to catch the rain leaking thorough the roof whenever it rains. On that basis this must be 5 star hotel. On our arrival it was raining hard and had been for most of the day. We were glad to get inside in the dry... More

Unfortunately, your stay with us coinsided with our roof repairs and regrettably they were not complete through no fault of the hotel's when we experienced heavy rain. However I am delighted to announce that we have now completed those repairs. Our bar is very popular with locals and hotel guests and I am sorry that you felt that the other... More

The rooms are outdated but spacious, however the bed linen is absolutely impossible, it scratches and is not hygienic (you can not avoid touching the duvet). The reception girl was very resourceful and friendly, and the location is good to explore the city.

On first appearances this hotel seemed to have been recently refurbished as the the reception area is airy and new looking. However, this was misleading. Our room was on the small side and rather tired. More worrying was the fact that a power socket was coming away from the wall and a permanent notice announcing that we had to keep... More

Thank you for taking the time to post this review and bringing to our attention the outdated electrical item. We do have a scheduled timetable for testing all electrical items in the rooms but due to human error this room must have been missed. We have just completed our earthquake repairs which included a complete rebuild of our reception area... More

We spend our last night in New Zealand in this hotel, it is very well situated. Close to Riccarton Road (for eating, shopping etc.) and also close to Hagley Park. Enough parking space for our rental car. The hotel is really big and we had a room at the back side of the entrance, facing the gardens. It was really... More

Pleasant location on edge of main city park but at least 20-30 mins walk to the edge of city centre, museum & botanical gardens - through the golf course or around the park perimter. City parking is not easy or cheap so taxis may be required. The start of Riccarton Road (a long road with wide choice of restaurants etc)... More

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. We are very lucky to have such a fabulous location next to Hagley Park and close to the shopping and dining area of Riccarton Road.

We stayed here for 1 night before heading off for 2 weeks in campervan. We had been looking for one last little bit of luxury. Whilst a very plesant hotel it isnt luxury and for the extra paid to stay here it wasnt really worth it. Was clean and very peaceful and breakfast was really good. Would stay again if... More

The hotel is set in nice gardens opposite Hagley Park and close to the Botanical Gardens. We had a first floor rom overlooking a car park containing two king size beds. It's just as well we were staying for two nights as there was not much storage for clothes. However the room was comfortable enough if unremarkable. We ate in... More
