3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We had a very small, outdated room. Refurbishment needed! Restaurant and bar are OK, but a bit drab. The gardens are lovely, and the location good. Free shuttle to the station for the TranzAlpine was a bonus.

We arrived late at night only to find our booking was not on the system! Veronica was brilliant at sorting this out and we had a comfortable room (although the bed seemed a bit small!). It's in a great spot for walking to the city and there are plenty of bars and restaurants very close. The wifi is included and... More

We stayed here before and after some other scheduled activities in Christchurch. The staff were very helpful in confirming our transportation for us. The water gardens and grounds are beautiful. The location just across the street from Hagley Park was great, as there are so many activities going on in the park and botanic gardens. Rooms were comfortable and spacious.

Stayed here on two occasions while touring NZ. The hotel was perfectly placed with easy access into the centre via the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Food was delicious, Staff, especially at reception were most attentive and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable. The hotel gardens were really lovely with a pool area. I would highly recommend this hotel

The rooms were clean and comfortable, beds really soft, really good shower. I had room service for dinner and the buffet breakfast, all of which were nice. Big park across the road and the city centre on the other side, nice for a walk or run. I used the gym also which was fine and had all the basics. I... More

Had a night for family birthday in group of 7 with dinner, bed and breakfast and enjoyed the hotel. It is very"80's" style of decor but in a good way! Rooms were very clean and the dinner and breakfast were really nice. Restaurant looks out to lovely gardens. We had prebooked for dinner and breakfast but both bookings had'nt got... More

The rooms were comfortable & clean although felt a bit old & tired and could be renovated/ updated. Gardens at the hotel are beautiful. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was very uninspiring and low quality (especially compared to Rydges hotel which I also stated at in Christchurch) Nice location next to park.

My wife and i stayed here twice on a tour of New Zealand. It is a nice cosy hotel and on both nights we had a good room which did, unlike other reports, have free wifi in the rooms. On both visits which were for just one night we ate in the bar from the bar menu. The prices are... More

while adjacent to a spectacular park/arboretum, that is the only thing to recommend this hotel. it is sprawling and poorly laid out, you will be walking miles to find your room. the rooms have no internet connectivity despite claims of wifi. there is no hairdryer, poor quality linens and toiletries, surly wait staff in the restaurant which is like a...
