Very modern hotel, with large rooms, including the bathroom with its jacuzzi tub. Kitchen area had a nice microwave. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel is located in an area that is convenient to everything, but is very quiet at night. Had a good nights sleep. Our room on the 2nd floor had a nice little balcony sitting area. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

I had never been to New Zealand and I was concerned about staying in Christchurch after the earthquakes. Our room was huge and all the usual amentiies were great. I was amazed that this hotel could still operate considering nearby buildings were demolished by the earthquake or after. I was saddened to see the city. The people are great and soldiering on. Now, back to the hotel... the food on the first night was amazing especially the pate. Definitely eat here. Slept really well and the food on the second night was just as pleasing - like really good. The owner /manager was all over the place - checking on service and the rooms - how good is that! With Christchuch needing tourists I say - just go and you won't be disapointed. This city and Pavilions is really worth a visit.

Thank you for your positive comments on the hotel and for the thoughts of people of Christchurch. Christchurch is really starting to open up again with new restaurants and bars popping up everywhere and is certainly an interesting city to visit at the moment. Its good to hear you enjoyed our food and service. We do hope to see you back here again soon.

We stayed by mistake after Jetstar cancelled our flight (thanks JS..) - the chef did an awesome job to have 50 people dumped on him on a Sunday night and pull off a fantastic meal. I'd go back just to eat there.

Room was OK, clean, shower nice.. everything you need, but don't rely on the wakeup call, otherwise solid.

I'm glad that we were a good mistake for you. It certainly is a challenge for our Chefs when 50 people arrive at once unexpected and they do a fantastic job under the pressure. Our meals are fantastic, I can vouch for that, I am lucky enough to dine here a few times a week.

We apologise for your wake up call issue, however it has been resolved. Daylight savings had happened on the night that you arrived to the hotel and an error was made in the change of over our phone clock.

We look forward to seeing you again on your next stay be it planned or unplanned in Christchurch.

We stayed in the Pavilion after dropping off our campervan so were delighted when we found out that we had a massive comfy bed for the night! Bedroom and bathroom were both spacious and clean. Reception staff were helpful - especially as we weren't sure what parts of town would be open after the earthquake. Maybe the hotel looks like it could do with a bit of a refurb as some of the communal areas look a bit tired, but it doesn't really detract too much from the overall experience. Didn't have too long in the hotel really as we had an early check-out, but if we were back in Christchurch we'd definitely give the Pavilion another look.

We really appreciate your positive feedback. We do take pride in the cleanliness of our rooms and its great to have the positive comments back. We often receive good feedback on our beds as we have the special underlays that provide that extra comfort - many people send emails after their stay asking for the suppliers of the underlays for beds.

We also really love the fact that you noticed our friendly staff. Most of our staff have been here with us for sometime and we make every effort to ensure our guests are looked after and well informed about our city.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

This hotel is really getting tired. The decor and room set up, especially the studio type unit with the ubiquitous noisey fridge really needs some work. The positive were the staff who were all terrific. The food was okay from the restaurant and the location is good. I did attempt to write his review on my iPad from the hotel, but the wifi was dodgy to say the least. I might do better research next time and stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Avoid a studio unit and eat out.

We appreciate your feedback on your stay. I cannot locate your booking easily from your name, however I do hope that you reported both the noisy fridge and the wifi problems to our reception team. We can often resolve those issues immediatley if advised, we do apologise that you experienced this during your stay. I am glad you enjoyed the location as it is a very central place to stay in Christchurch.
