This property is one of the old classic hotels in Christchurch having a great ambiance with the long corridor connecting the lobby with dining area & rooms. The food options were pretty good. Although, Christchurch is re-building after the earthquake, but this hotel remains unaffected and is very near to some good parks & other historic buildings in the city.

Across the street from Hagley Park and Botanic Gardens. Easy walk to EQ area and town. Not far to shopping mall. Friendly staff. Good internet connections. Beautiful hotel garden. Food was excellent but a little costly - food in general is expensive in NZ when compared to America.

Room was spacious, very comfy bed, nice bathroom, patio doors to an enclosed garden space. Restaurant food was fantastic and all bar and waiting staff were great. On site laundry facilities, only...

A lovely little hotel in the middle of the city. Walking distance from the park & a 10 minute drive to most attractions nearby. The rooms were slightly aged & majorly in the need for a renovation. The staff & service was average. The design of the hotel is pretty though & gives the feeling of a traditional chateau. Loved...

Great hotel within walking distance of the City and great parks. Real luxury hotel but the dining experience is let down by the ambiance in the restaurant which is rather run of the mill in comparison with the hotel and grounds. If ever in New Zealand again would love to stay at this Hotel.

The welcome was luke warm and reception staff seemed distracted. Overall hotel appeared dated and in need of a refreshing update. Rooms were comfortable and clean but again dated. Bar staff friendly but surroundings were a little dark and again, dated. Dark wood appears to be the flavour throughout this hotel. Restuarant at breakfast was brilliant with huge selection. We...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on a recent tour of New Zealand. The hotel was handily placed for the airport, being only a 20 min journey away. The hotel is on the edge of Hagley Park which is a lovely way to walk into the centre of Christchurch. The room was very pleasant, on the ground...

Stayed here for one night whilst away for work. The buildings have a medival / castle theme which is different to your average hotel. There is even the odd knights Armour and cauldron around! Beautiful gardens and outdoor area. Friendly staff. Rooms are dated but comfortable, think 90s cream and gold. Bathroom is well appointed with excellent shower pressure. You...
