“nice stay but nothing luxurious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

the hotel is at a round about facing the hagley park south, the room is huge, bed is comfortable, bathroom is clean with nice fittings. free parking and wifi. there are many restuarants within walking distance, botanic garden is 5 min by foot. its an nice apartment, nothing like a hotel.

Had a good night at this hotel, well situated on the corner of Hagley Park and within 15 minute walk of city centre. The room was huge with kitchen area, desk, TV and bed. The bathroom was designed to cater for a wheelchair user so also very large. Alas we were not allocated a room with a spa bath. Everything was as we needed it, with a helpful proprietor who took us to our room. There is much building work going on which makes for a bit of noise, but the freshness of the room, the huge continental breakfast and the comfort made up for that. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a spa bath perhaps you have to ask, or upgrade.

We stayed here for three nights to attend a family wedding. Our room was a Premium executive and very spacious with reasonable furniture and fittings, though definitely not 5 star standard. The bed was comfortable but the sofa and armchairs were very uncomfortable with cushions made out of rock.
The room overlooks a major roundabout intersection and there was sewerage repair work going on right outside our window, the double glazing was really good at keeping the noise to an acceptable background level. However the internal repair work was EXTREMELY noisy - they were drilling tiles off walls and it sounded as thou it was happening right behind our headboard - this disturbed us at 4.30pm Friday afternoon, then on Saturday morning and before 9am on the Sunday morning - NOT acceptable. The absolute worse thing about the room was the complete lack of privacy - being on a busy main road with floor to ceiling windows and no net curtains. this meant that we had to draw heavy drapes whenever we wished to get changed, plunging us into complete darkness during the middle of the day when getting ready for a wedding.
The hotel has no facilities - breakfast is brought in from a cafe down the road so we gave that a miss imagining it to be cold and dry by the time it would arrive. There was no mini bar in the room and nowhere in the hotel to buy a drink - 5 star?
The bathrooms were nicely appointed but lacked finishing touches. for example they provide large bottles of shampoo and conditioner but no shelf in the shower to put them on, everything has to go on the floor.
Definitely not worth a return visit.


We would not stay here again - overpriced and average quality.

This is most certainly NOT a five star hotel, and the ugly exterior might be off-putting. It was clean, spacious, quiet and quite acceptable. And it had a bath - always a tick in my book.

No in-house restaurant, but the rowdy around the corner downstairs serves quite good food with generous portions.

Room Tip: Try to get one with a view over the park.

I stayed here for 5 nights. It is right by the park and in walking distance to a lot of things. The bed is very comfortable and has a toaster, microwave, kettle, and fridge for use. It has large containers of soap, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner for use along with a very nice hair dryer. The room is nicely decorated and was a perfect stay.

Putting in some fancy controls in the lifts and quality bathroom fittings do not make for a 5 star hotel - i am sorry to say. This is my 2nd night at Parkview on Hagley and most certainly the last. The place appears to be run by one 'mature' lady who delivers your continental breakfast at 8pm, so you can enjoy your stale toast when u wake up. Thats it - 2 slices of stale toast and a glass of OJ. The tiny container of long life milk in the fridge is a bonus thou! because it would be such a hassle to give out some fresh milk for coffee when u check in.
Yes, im getting picky here, my bad for expecting 5 star Hotel when booking this place.

My stay at ther Parkview on Hagley was very enjoyable. The room was huge and very well laid out. It had everything i needed for my two nights stay.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
From the minute I checked in to when I left I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
The room was very clean, the small kitchen was well kitted out if there was one thing I thought was a bit lacking it was a proper wardrobe. One of the larger kitchen cupboards was designated as the wardrobe which was a bit small.
The bathroom was very clean and even had a jacuzzi bath which was lovely! The products in the bathroom were really nice to use too.
I took advantage of the hotels room service from the adjoining restaurant and it was fantastic, huge portions and the chocolate brownie was just devine!
My room was at the front of the hotel at a busy roundabout but the double glazing was brilliant I couldn't hear the traffic at all it was pretty silent. The views over the park were lovely too. Because it was a business trip mid week I didn't get into the city centre but I got the feeling it wasn't too far out and would be within walking distance there seemed to be plenty of little shops and restaurants around the hotel. All in all a lovely little hotel that I would be pleased to use again.
Well worth a visit.
