We had lunch in the restaurant which was of a high standard prior to putting the finishing touches to seating arrangements and decorations for a family wedding. The venue was immaculate and all staff were extremely helpful & friendly. On the day all went to plan and was expertly managed.

The room was very comfortable and clean with nice lake views from the balcony. The meals and breakfasts in the restaurant were superb. We spent the first and last nights of our trip here, ordered different meals and all food was exceptionally good. All staff were attentive and very pleasant and the wine list was extensive and prices acceptable. We... More

Although just out of Central Christchurch this offerring is well worth the inconvenience od a couple of kilometers to town. Friendly helpful staff, large well appointed rooms and this aging facility still has great ambience. Its well priced and provides a restaurant and a full suite of other services. If you like a bit of room and medium price range... More

We stayed here for the all blacks game and it was perfectly located in walking distance to the stadium passing through Riccarton with eateries and bars on the way. Nice walk through Hagley park to the main city centre area. We didn't get time to look around the hotel properly but was beautiful from the outside and our room was... More

Stayed here with my friend who is female and I am male. After booking on Booking.com on which we made it clear we needed a twin room and would be arriving at 10.30pm, we arrived in a very cold reception area, to be told the computer was down and they didn't know we were coming. We were given a room... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Chateau on the Park & it was a warm, comfortable stay. Our room was on the second floor, which we accessed from the car park via the back door. Our room was very clean, spacious & the bed comfortable. My request for an extra towel was quickly delivered tho it would have been... More

Starting with positives, the people are polite and friendly and the restaurant served up some excellent food and the service was also great. Good breakfast range too. The room itself was a little tired. Scratched table, long-established cup rings on the wooden surfaces. Also, the bathroom shower was quite hard to use with a tap thing that needed adjusting 'just...

Nice hotel, located near Hagley Park and about 20 mins from the city center. The rooms are comfortable with basic amenities included. The hotel has a nice layout with lot of places to explore including a lotus pool and a lovely garden with some of the most beautiful roses I have ever seen. The restaurant staff were a little rude,... More

The Chateau on the Park is well situated for a visit to Christchurch. It is a lovely hotel located just across the road from Hagley Park. It is therefore ideally positioned for accessing the centre of Christchurch. The hotel has a large car park making it well suited to anyone visiting the city by car. The hotel also has a... More

When we arrived they couldn't find our booking and at checkout they tried to charge us more than what was agreed. It was a nice hotel, a bit cold and draughty but we've since realised that most places in Christchurch are! There was nobody around at reception when we left in the morning or came home in the evening so... More
