This is a simple city motel but provides great, well equipped, clean, friendly and efficient services....from being able to watch the Australian Open tennis on Sky toa stroll across the road and exploring the botanic gardens and being shuttled to the railway station. Understated and over delivered.

First choice for my wife & I when staying in ChCh. Why 1 Hosts. Peter & Lena very helpful with great attitude & lovely manner. 2 Location. Opposite Hagley Park. Great for walks or running. Close to town & hospital. 3 Motel units. Spacious, comfortable, have a small kitchen, spotlessly clean.

Location of Argyle on the Park is perfect. It is right across the street from Hagley Park. There is lot to do a the parks-golf course, rent bikes, rent kayaks, walk,visit the botanical gardens, and visit the Century Museum. It close to the biggest mall on the South Island.

No-frills, reasonably priced motel across the street from the park. Reception was very friendly. We were given a huge family style room with a separate bedroom that we didn't need. The room, while quite dated, was very spacious with a sitting area and kitchenette, and it was very clean and comfortable. Great location walking distance to plenty of restaurants.

So when we arrived the the Argyle after 22 hours in transit from Calgary, getting lost in the rental car and jet lag making the concept of "left hand side" driving pretty impossible - to our absolute dismay, there was no record of our reservation. Tired and exhausted, all I had was a print out of the reservation. You could... More

Dear Lara. Thank you for your review. I must admit we were really surprised that there was no communication on your booking. Being new to the business we were a bit nervous as we did not have experience in dealing with those kind of situations.

Great location within walking distance of the centre of Christchurch. Also near the Botanic Gardens. Room was quiet and with everything we needed. We were staying there before our flight out of NZ. When we had problems with our flight, management was very understanding, generous and willing to help. Next time we go to Christchurch, we would stay at Argyle... More

the room was very well set up and there was minimal noise from the adjacent guests - good soundproofing. Closeness to the nearby park allowed peaceful walks into the city centre for further exploring. Staff were friendly and helpful
