We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Spacious and well appointed room with excellent amenities. Located just next to a park and a nice walk to the botanic gardens. Breakfast was very good and generous, and the restaurant staff were great. Each morning, we looked forward to meeting the restaurant captain/manager who was so very hospitable and enthusiastic in greeting guests at breakfast. The front office manager Cecilia Zhong was most helpful.

A very relaxed pleasant atmosphere makes this an ideal centre for a Christchurch visit. It’s a lovely walk into the city through Hagley Park but buses are easily accessible too. The gardens are beautiful and the pool is warm and sheltered from wind. All the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient and the restaurant serves good, if fairly traditional, meals. I felt dry comfortable to be staying alone.

We moved from the Pavilions Hotel where we stayed for one uncomfortable night. The Chateau On The Park was a delightful contrast. We were made to feel welcome and the staff were very obliging. We were caught in the Christchurch earthquake and we cannot speak highly enough of the way all the hotel staff strived to make us feel as comfortable as possible in the dreadful circumstances.
