Last days of a great trip

We enjoyed our stay at Chateau on the Park. The room was great. Location was great. Bed was great. This stay came after 10 days of exploring the South Island and we were ready to stay in one place and not drive. Would stay here again.

Pleasant Surprise

I was pleasantly surprised by the kindness each staff person exuded. The room was comfortable as well as the overall feel of the hotel. There's a pond in the interior of the hotel separated by glass so as you're walking through the corridors your gaze lands on water. It was a nice touch. The hotel seems to be catering to the family experience so the hallways after the day wore on tended to need a touch up on vacuuming. Also, I like my room really warm and it felt like the heating temperatures were controlled. Other than that. It was an overall good experience.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a bus stop for the #23 Bus right in front of the hotel that makes thing very simply for getting around the city without a car.

Nice Experience

The hotel is situated just on the other side of the big park that has the botanical gardens, canterbury museum and I info site. It's nice because they have a shuttle that will take you the point of attraction with advanced notice. I thought my overall experience was pleasant. There are a few things I would change: The atmosphere was very family centered. For the single and business travelers such as myself, I would invite the staff to pay attention to the hallway upkeep from the children playing. Also, maybe don't allow smokers to smoke on the outside garden patios, they need to be directed outside. Other than those few things I was very pleased with my stay.

Great Location

This hotel is on the edge of the main park of Christchurch. A beautiful park with botanic gardens that borders on the city center. You can walk to the city center or to the nearest mall. Driving to/from the airport and other destinations is a breeze. Staff is courteous and helpful. The facilities are a bit dated but you have to give all of Christchurch a break after the horrible damage done to the city and local economy by 2010-11 earthquakes.

Christchurch Revitalizing and South Island Countryside

Chateau on the Park is a lovely centrally located hotel in Christchurch, just outside of the CBD. It is located in a quiet neighborhood within 10 minutes walk from commercial districts and tne CBD. The room was cleanand well appointed with the basics, plus refrigerator and kettle with a tea and coffee selection. While the hotel experienced eathquake damage and was u dergoing substantial repairs in December 2013, there was nothing about it that affected our stay. During this time much of the CBD was rebuilding fro extensive damage. We spent most of our time exploring the contryside around Christchurch, and we highly recommend making the drive to Akaroa for a harbor wildlife cruise to see the dolphins and penguins. The South Island has magical qualities!

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The Brewery by Cassel & Co is a brilliant brewpub with great food and friendly people. We dropped in on Trivia Night and fell right in with the crowd.

Excellent hotel

Only problem we had with this hotel was that it was some way from the shops, although it did have a shuttle bus on Thursdays and Fridays to the very large Riccarton mall. Restaurant was very good.
