Recent guest reviews

Family of 5 stayed for one night after landing in Christchurch very late. Very clean and affordable. Would definitely stay again. We had two rooms in our apartment which suited us. Close to city and amenities.

First time visitor to Christchurch, hosts went out their way to accommodate all our usual tourist enquiries. Room spotless, fluffy towels everyday, beds WOW, wanted to bring them home to Sydney. Hosts dropped & collected us from station re Trans Alpine Tour also did same for our day trip to Akaroa. It was my birthday whilst on the 11 days stay & came back from Riccarton Races to find a little surprise Birthday Cake in room, not too many establishments would do that !!! Thank you Lena & Peter

Wonderful and comfortable motel unit on a relatively main road - but really pleased at overall lack of noise once in the unit. The motel is right next to the park and has buses close by. The unit itself was really well laid out (3 single beds in one room and a Double bed in the main lounge area). For 4 adults it did not feel cramped at all. Kitchenette and bathroom with separate toilet. The beds were so comfortable and quality linen throughout. Lena was lovely and friendly and my 91 year old Dad was delighted with the small gift left for him as it was his birthday. It's the small touches that count. We got a free transfer to the Train station in the morning along with another couple. What a great motel and would definitely recommend this for friends / family to stay.

we stayed here for one night after the trans alpine rail trip. it included a complimentary transfer from the station and they collected us within 5 minutes of phoning them. A good continental breakfast is also offered at an additional charge. Room was clean and good value. Would use again .

It was so nice to have a kitchen with a small oven and just about every thing else you would need so if you wanted to say in you could. We had a great stay and enjoyed the room and its facilities. Like any motel/hotel on Deans road there will be noise as it is one of the main roads in Christchurch and also the way to the Accident and Emergency Hospital . We slept well and it was nice to be able to walk across the park into the centre of the city or the cricket ground.

Excellent location next to Hagley Park with walking access to the botanic gardens and central Christchurch. The suite was clean and spacious with all the amenities including kitchenette. The host was very friendly and welcoming. We would recommend the Argyle on the Park to friends and would gladly stay there again.

The large family room was clean with a well equipped kitchen and sky TV. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Not a central location but on way to airport and walking distance to museum and botanic gardens.

The motel is in a handy position on Hagley Park close to town. It is a bit noisy being on Deans Ave, especially Friday night when the boy racers come out to play. The unit was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. Large screen TV with all Sky channels

Very friendly manager. Great location, a nice walk across the park into the centre of Christchurch. Very comfortable rooms and well equipped kitchen. Very handy for Christchurch airport, only 10 to 15 minutes by car.

Lovely unit. Hosts were really helpful. Excellent location and close to Botanic Gardens for an early morning walk. Shuttle service from Trans Alpine and to the airport was great. We had everything we needed and the unit was super clean too. Walking distance to heaps of dining options as well.
