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

Arrived very late to a cheerful reception and relatively fuss free checkin. Breakfast for family of 4 was supposedly included in our package although there was some discrepancy on arrival as the motel only had breakfast for two of us in their records. No problem on checking out, they did not try to charge us for the kids. Only shame... More

Room out towards the back carpark great easy to get in and out of. Was in a cold spell so even had containers of water by door to use to remove ice from car. Inside atrium very nice. Close to city centre Riccarton and Fendalton, just across road from Hagley Park

Found this quite cold due to its large entrance style, the heating did not see to keep up with the cold conditions. Found it frustrating as the courtesy van was not operating due to a conference, I personally thought that would be all the more reason to have it available. Was one of the reasons why we chose to stay... More

Stayed here during two freezing cold nights in June. The room was well heated, but the common areas of the hotel were very cold. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We ate one dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was good. The restaurant staff were friendly and attentive. The large garden must be very charming... More

Visiting Christchurch during a particularly cold period was in fact joyful. Returning to this hotel was less than joyful. To be fair the room I had was very clean and as an added bonus had a bath. This I love to relax in. Imagine how I felt on the last morning when I couldn't have a bath because no hot... More

Stayed here for two nights in June, mid winter. Nice location if you want to be near Harley Park but there's not much else nearby. Rooms are a bit dated but we're clean and everything worked. Breakfast restaurant was good, not spectacular but had the usual stuff. Lunch at the restaurant was nice and the staff were attentive.

Pleasant low-rise hotel set in pretty gardens. Extensive car park was usually busy, but we always found a space. Just across the road from the western edge of Hagley Park, which makes a pleasant (though not short) walk into the city - 20 minutes to the Museum and starting point for bus tours. Staff very helpful in arranging the free... More

This is a charming little hotel we picked because we couldn't get a group booking anywhere else. LOCATION Chateau on the Park is located on the left side of the Hagley Park while the city centre is on the right side. So basically you need to cross the park to get to the city centre. It's a 20min leisurely walk... More

Dated décor and television. Shower is over the bath and has a curtain which clings to you when showering. A shower door would be preferable. Air conditioning is tempermental. Room entry by lock and key is clumsy.
