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

Loved the proximity of hotel to downtown and airport. The property and public spaces were very nicely appointed. However, the rooms could use some updating, but overall comfortable. The bartender in the main lounge was great - I had fun teaching her how to make a martini up!

This hotel is classically beautiful, although a little dated. Room was quiet, comfortable and spacious. Staff were very helpful. All in all the hotel was great value for money and I would certainly consider staying here again in the future.

we stayed in a deluxe room which had 2x double beds. Large room which had mini fridge, desk and 2 chairs. Bed comfy, pillows a bit hard. Dated bathroom but large and included shower over bath. Could do with a good scrub around the edges. Tv needs to be upgraded, was old style and quite small Room service dinner was... More
