Not the flashest joint on the block - but comfortable, warm, clean and welcoming. Has a good house bar and restaurant with excellent food and room service. Location right in the heart of the city, and short drive to airport, is a huge bonus. A good choice at reasonable rates.

Very nice hotel, stayed in a Premier room which was more than adequate. Close to Hagley Park and a good walk into Christchurch through the Botanical Gardens which is well worth a visit. Staff were fine and the barman very efficent despite it being very busy. Also found a couple of decent pubs nearby. The hotel runs a free shuttle... More

Room was fine. Comfy bed, nice sheets and pillow, clean, enough space, decent sized bathroom. It was disappointing to find an empty fridge other than airline biscuits and long life milk pods in a hotel such as this. Old tv and worn carpet, however maybe this is being a bit fussy. The bar experience was dull and lacked attention. Restaurant/cafe... More

A nostalgic family visit to post-quake Christchurch for my Mother's 90th birthday, just 2 days after Christmas. Lovely to see the Chateau still provides those touches that make the occasion even more of a treat.

Stayed a night on a business trip. Room was clean, although I do agree that it is slightly dated and wouldn't hurt to have an update (doesn't bother me). Spent most of the day in the city therefore didn't have time to explore much of the hotel however had a quick glance at the gardens in the morning which was... More

We have stayed twice at The Chateau on the Park. 2008 and 2010. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Convenient for most places of interest. We still keep in touch and it is my hope to be able to return once again.

This was our first night in NZ. Was impressed by the general feel of the place. Large comfy reception with fire so very welcoming. Very close to parklands which was nice. Room was ok, clean and neat, but decor tired certainly not what was indicated in photos. Needed a spruce up.

Oh dear, why do some hotels shoot themselves in the foot? We stayed here on 2 consecutive Monday nights on a guided tour of New Zealand. The hotel itself is nice with a nice outside pool. No mini-bar which would have been good as you don't always want to make the effort to go down to the bar. On both... More

Great staff, helpful, caring, knowledgeable ans smart. Restaurant, OK, reasonable prices. Bar, exorbitant cost of a small glass if beer. Room clean but asthmatic air on was annoying as was the lack of double glazed windows when accompanied road.

They say first impressions last, this unfortunately was the case at check-in. Usually a good experience at the Chateau is the reason that I used them again. We requested a 'family room', which myself and a colleague needed to share. Even if I did have my family with me it would not have been sufficient. Returning to the desk and... More
