I was traveling through Christchurch with ASC on my way down to Antarctica. It was a very comforting stay. All the employees were very informative and polite. The Chef does an excellent job with the execution of all the food. I would definately recommend / stay here again in the future. Everyone from housekeeping to front desk were excellent. And... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in early August 2014. The room was adequate - we had a room with two double beds, so spacious. I ordered room service on the first night (salt and pepper calamari) - very disappointed, lukewarm and soggy. The snug bar was a nice surprise - reasonably priced drinks and a nice... More

This Chateau is actually in the midst of a Park. You'll actually hear ctickets & other insects chirping & birds singing ! One feels relaxed immediately on entering the Chateau premisis. One gets a feel of staying in a huge Colonial bunglow,with gardens all around,and one cannot see the neighbours!.The hotel rooms are excellent in size & comfort. The hotel... More

Chateau On The Park - the name is a tease.f We even booked a deluxe twin share park view room. What a joke. We got a great view of the roof and air conditioning pipes. We could have lived with that but our room was immediately above the reception area that had a very heavy office door that slammed about... More

We arrived in Christchurch at 7pm on a Saturday night without any accommodation booked. After a quick Agoda search we found a bargain at Chateau on the Park. The Agoda website would not process our booking so we decided to go in to the hotel and see what they could offer. The Duty Manager, Kerri was on the reception as... More

We arrived here after a long drive from Franz Josef along the Great Alpine highway. Large hotel and well located, near the airport and city center. Is right next to Hagley park, can actually walk through the park to city center (which is still a big rebuilding site after the 2011 earthquake). Room 146. Spacious, clean, large and comfortable bed.... More

I stayed there for a night with my girlfriend after 1 month of traveling sleeping in the car around the South Island. We enjoyed arriving in a warm comfy room with 2 king size beds, TV, fridge and a warm unlimited shower. Everything was clean and we didn't find any bad points. It's close to the road but it stays...

I spent a short time at this hotel. It is an interesting place. The lobby looked kind of 70's modern but also had a feel of an English castle with a knight in armor in the lobby. It has some beautiful grounds with a pond like area that can be viewed while walking through the hotel's lobby area. The hallways... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am disappointed to hear that you found our reception staff unfriendly, as we often receive very positive comments about the reception team. We have just completed our earthquake repairs and we are currently refreshing the accommodation rooms. Unfortunately it sounds like you may have been in a room that... More

The kids nicknamed this place Hotel Transylvania for it's slightly medieval appearance but it had it's own unique characteristics and overall it we all enjoyed it. The reception and inner workings of the hotel is very appeasing with glass windows, water and nature being the focal point. It really is quite elegant. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative. The... More

Architecture-wise, this is a very impressive hotel, all glass and angles and water and space. Gorgeous. In contract, the rooms are on the small side with no place to hang your coats. The breakfast is delicious, though I did wonder why the restaurant manager told us to sit at a particular table as the place was totally empty at 6.30... More
