After a frustrating day of air travel we arrived late at night. We had kept in touch with our hosts and he was only too happy to wait up for us. Our rooms were beautifully warm and cosy. We chose this motel as it was close to the railway station for our early morning start to catch the Trans Alpine. Having a shuttle service to the station is a real bonus.

Friendly and helpful, room had too many beds for our needs - room slept 5 we were just two. A smaller room could have done us. But value for the money. Know next time to book just 1 room for 4. Close to town and park. Great service with drop off and pickup from train.

it's all we needed, warm room, friendly staff, close to the hospital we were visiting and no traffic woe's. will make it our base on our next trip, the bus stop is 2 min's around the corner. I can recommend this place to all..

This motel is great, I would recommend it to fellow travellers, so lovely and clean and so comfortable. The only thing I would recommend to the owners is when you need to replace the shower rose, put in one with the hose attached they are so much better and more modern, but really, I couldn't fault this motel. Awesome standard. We will stay again

Handy location, close to Riccarton and city. Clean and comfortable, pleasant hosts but the motel units are definitely showing their age. However at the cost these are fine for a short stay.parking available on site is a bonus, at no extra cost.

Good location walking distance to Hagley park and city centre, tram stop. King size room was well equipped even had an oven. We had a separate bedroom with TV too. Close to Riccarton mall. Use their free pick ups/drop off for Tranz Alpine journey

Great hosts Peter and Lena very helpful and socialible people. Rooms are well maintained and very central to the hospital where one of us was for 5 days. They were good enough to reduce the room rate for our stay. Thank you

Argyle on the Park is a perfect location to stay given ease of access to the ever-changing roading situation in post-earthquake Christchurch. Close enough to the centre of the city and very handy to all the facilities that Riccarton and Church Corner have to offer.

Great room , great staff very friendly . Great location stayed here a few times in the past , just a shame about the bed in the lounge . Would definitely stay again as handy and easy to get around Christchurch

Check-in is fast. Service is very good. The owner is very friendly & helpful. She is able to give you lots of information. The room is clean, normal standard size with everything in need in a motel, a place to cook, boil water, a fridge, hair dryer. We had a room upstair, if you stand at the front of the room, you can see part of the park. The Hagley park is within walking distance. From the park, you could walk to the Botanic garden & the Canterbury Museum. In fact we also walk to Cathedral Square.
