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!

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.

Farther from center of town, comfy amenities

We stayed here one night before heading to the airport early. I thought it was closer to the town. There is a nice botanic gardens within walking distance. You can take a bus to get to town center. It's about 2-1/2 miles from the canter berry museum. The hotel had a/c tv iron, fridge, coffee pot hairdryer, heated drying rack for towels. There is a nice place to eat 2 blocks away next to a convenience store running bull had lovely salad and pizza, burgers. We used super shuttle to get to the airport. The front desk made the booking.

Hotel Chateau on the Park

We had stayed at this hotel 4 years ago and it was so great we decided to stay there again. Since then they have added a Gym and a Spa. This time we had a chance to have room service and the food was suberb. It is very close to the airport but right across from a beautiful park. They also have a free shuttle to City Centre. Could not be better.

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.

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).
