Turned up wanting a room that was available for $150 on wotif, the receptionist matched the rate as i wanted to pay via eftpos. Awesome tidy room, spa bath, kitchenette, plenty of room, fast internet, parking at your door and good tv. Would stay again!

Thank you so much taking time to post comment. We are glad you noticed how clean our rooms are as it is a priority here to have outstanding cleanliness. Its also great to see you enjoyed the comforts of the spa, kitchenette and noticed the size of the rooms as they are bigger than your average rooms. We have recently upgraded our internet to the fastest available in this area so its great to see it recognised also. We do look forward to seeing you again soon.

My wife and i came down for some unpleasant circumstances and from the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by a lovely young man by the name of Troy who made us feel very at ease showing us to our room. We had a meal at the restaurant that night where we were looked after by Chelsea and were so impressed with the quality and excellence of the food and service that Sanjay and Bibek (chefs) deserved our full compliments. The following morning we sat down to have breakfast and found two lovely young ladies Jess and Jasmine who went out of their way to make our morning an awesome one. After complimenting Graham Horncastle on the fantastic atmosphere we felt compelled to let everyone know that we would not hesitate to recommend or come and stay again. Thank you so much for your hospitality and making us feel like part of the family you truly are a 5 star team. We wish you well and will definitely return at a later date.

A family owned hotel and we were treated like family. Service and accommadation was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. On site parking and the location was very convenient for getting to the centre of Christchurch.

After having not the best start to our holiday (luggage was lost!!) Pavilions Hotel was a fantastic hotel to stay. The location was fantastic, rooms extremely clean and well presented and the staff brilliant!! We loved the atmosphere of this family owned and operated establishment and were lucky enough to chat to them a little. Would love to say a special thanks to Hayley who looked after us and took the time to get to know us a little and make our stay a little more memorable. A big thank you!! Would highly recommend Pavilions.

I remember you both and congratulate you again on your engagement - just lucky you made the decision to propose prior to leaving Australia so you still had your ring. I do hope your bags eventually showed up along your travels.
Thank you for taking the time to post comment we pride ourselves on our clean rooms and our fantastic staff. Hayley certainly does an outstanding job and I will ensure she receives your feedback.
We hope to see you back this way again.

We were 3 Norwegian couples on tour in Australia and New Zealand that had one night in this hotel. We came in around midnight and went out next morning at 07:15. So may be we should not give our review. But we liked the architecture of the building and the location, and specially the excellent service we got both at night and in the early morning. We agreed that if we come back to Christchurch we certainly would stay at this hotel again, and not only for one short night. The rooms were fairly big, the beds very comfortable, the whole athmosphare was friendly.

We appreciate you taking the time to post comment on your stay and sorry you didn't get to stay with us longer to enjoy our fantastic food and service. Its great that in the short time you did stay that you noticed our family friendly atmosphere and enjoyed the service. Our beds are particularly comfortable and the secret is in the underlay - they make it perfect. Its also fantastic you noticed how big our rooms are , it is definitely a competitive advantage we hold.
