Pleasant stay in a unique location

The hotel was located ideally, next to the park, not far from the town center. The grounds were immaculately maintained with the gardens providing a warm ambiance.

Pretty setting but not central

The hotel was very nice with gardens and ponds, however it was a long walk to any restraunts other than the one on site. Additionally, the room smelled of smoke. Overall still a very nice place to stay but not my top choice.

Chateau On The Park highly recommended

Friendly and very courteous staff. Assistance always available. Convenient shuttle service to and from downtown and to train depot (delivery, but no pick-up). Unfortunately, no shuttle to airport. Great location, adjacent to gorgeous Hagley Park and Mona Vale. Easy and very pleasant walk to downtown, the preferable way to go if the weather is nice. Good eating facility on site, but there are also good and less expensive eating places nearby (which we had to discover ourselves).

Great location

The hotel is across the street from Hagley Park, which has some nice walking paths. The staff was very friendly and professional.

Beautiful, Comfortable and Convient

Approaching The Chateau on the Park was a pleasure to the eyes. Checking in was quick, convient, and friendly. They were on-top of our lost luggage situation, immediately. They were more then professional, friendly and helpful. Our room was attractive, up-to-date and at all times clean. Lovely gardens both in the interior and exterior of the hotel were tended to at a constant pace with loving care. Each room has a frig (mini-bar) and coffee/tea set up. Heated pool is outside. The rooms open onto a patio in the garden. Good photo ops. at every turn, in the path. The restaurant was exceptional and not overly priced, with swift and very pleasant staff. Breakfast buffet! Computers were easily available in an alcove in the lobby. A lovely walk through Hagley Park to the city was just a few steps from the hotel's entrance. All our needs were met with professional and warm friendliness. This in my opinion is a dream hotel. I would always return to this hotel in visits to Christchurch, NZ.

Hagley Park just outside Chateau, is actually 640 acres. It has a botanical garden, one of the top ten in the WORLD. Streams, bridges, fish, ducks abound in the park. A gazebo restaurant,is in the park. There is a gondola ride, where you can see a vast valley of beauty, including Christchurch itself. There is a shop at the top & a restaurant
