We visited in Feb. 2013. Not very exciting from the outside but the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. Our room had a small kitchen; kettle, toaster, micro wave, sink and fridge, with table ware and cutlery. A continental breakfast was the only type of breakfast on offer due the the damage caused by the recent earthquake; no breakfast room.
Be aware that some rooms over look the park and some overlook the car park with views into the adjacent room from the small balcony. We prefered the room overlooking the park even though it had no balcony. The road works were not a problem, the working stopped in the evening and the double glazing was effective as was the air con.
The steak house nextdoor was very good and so handy after travelling all day, other restaurants were just a short walk down Riccarton Road; Italian,Thai and indian just five minutes down the road.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the park have a view. Other rooms over look the garage and you can see into the a...

As others have noted the Parkview is more apartments than hotel, so don't choose it if you want to be waited on. We just needed a comfortable room for one night during a self-drive tour of the South Island. The Parkview was easy to find and has plenty free parking spaces in a small multi-storey parking garage next door. Our room was spacious and well-equipped, with a spa bath as well as a shower, and decent kitchen facilities - fridge, microwave, plenty crockery & cutlery etc.. There is a guest laundry room which offers washers and dryers for just NZ$2 a go. We fetched a takeaway meal from the Thai Container, only about a mile away, and ate it in the room. Overall I thought the Parkview was good value for money, and I'd certainly consider staying there again.

Serviced apartment but not a Hotel. Nice "Penthouse" room with lots of space but for some reason no draws for clothes and very little hanging space. Its on a very noisy corner but with the windows closed it was ok. Good parking and access dispite the road works which are unavoidable in ChCh. Staff friendly enough without being outstanding. Enjoyable stay.

I got off to a bad start, reception was unattended and nobody was answering the phone however the remainder of my stay was good. I rate the room for a business traveller, lots of space, quiet despite being on a busy intersection, provisions for self catering. There is a good bar/restaurant right next door, 24hr convienience store 100m away and ample parking. Hagley park right across the road to stretch your legs. The traffic is a bit insane so navigation to and from by car wasnt the best but this applies to 90% of Christchurch currently. Might just be my prefered accommodation in Christchurch now!

This is a lovely serviced apartment, but if your looking for a hotel, this is not it. The room was well appointed, but overall it did not fully cater to what we were wanting. The woman who checked us in was lovely, explained where we could eat, park etc. but didn't show us to our room.The 'hotel' has mod cons, touch button this and that, but small tvs that get lost on the wall, and probably the worst water pressure we've ever had in a shower. The long life milk was a disappointment, as was the lack if explanation of where to find the air on control, which we needed in the middle of the night. Overall, we would stay here again, but not at $235 a night, as we could have got the same but cheaper service at a motor lodge or motel. Very handy though, and lovely big rooms.

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.
