I was expecting something fresh and nurturing given the recently completed makeover and certainly the glorious setting off the Chateau. The makeover is veneered - it is surface features with many areas left still looking rather 'shabby' to say the least - the doors are an example of this. The rooms are only just acceptable for the rate charged and... More

The Chateau on the Park remodelling is a disappointment. It is bland and lacking character now and no longer has the uniqueness and character it once had.It was clean and sparsely furnished and now looks like many many hotels.

Our first exposure to the Chateau on the Park was an absolute pleasure and made our holiday starting point in Christchurch feel warm and welcoming. Looking forward to returning in the none-too-distant future. Great staff, great service and a mighty fine buffet breakfast selection. Thanks NZ

This is the second time I have stayed at the Chateau and it has been excellent both times. The rooms are very spacious and beds comfortable, the restaurant is excellent and service all-round faultless. Sure, maybe it's a bit quirky outside but it is unique because it has huge manicured grounds while still being close to the city centre and... More

I stayed at this hotel over a bitterly cold weekend. The hotel was heated everywhere which seems to made the cold weather disappear. The building has style and is in excellent condition. All facilities were fully functional although the internet could be improved. It did however work. The staff were very friendly and helpful - great service and totally hassle... More

This establishment has always been a home away from home, from the friendly staff who are are only too happy if there is a problem with the room or minor issues for my diet requirements, nothing was a problem. When my son and his family, joined me for breakfast the buffet was scrumptious, smiles greeted his young family which put... More

Peaceful luxury, great location. Very helpful staff at reception, in Bar and Restaurant. Spacious room, massive bed. Beautiful gardens. Can't fault it 😊 put the do not disturb light on the morning you check out so the housekeepers don't try to get in early

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip for one night. It was very cold outside and when I walked into the room it was very warm as the heating was on. The room is nicely decorated and bed is comfortable. I tried switching the heating off after a while but the room stayed really hot. I tried to... More

We stayed at this hotel for business because that is where the meeting was being held. The food was quite good and fresh; however the hotel was very cold. The meeting room hadn't been heated and so it took most of the morning for the room to warm up. But then, the hotel has no heating in its corridors and... More

Heated outdoor pool, clean lovely rooms and a very nice restaurant and bar. The grounds are beautiful and worth a walk around, including Hagley Park which is right across the street. Staff were helpful, ample parking free and had a very pleasant stay.
