We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2010. The exterior of the building and the interior rooms (especially the bathrooms) are pretty dated and do not look quite as nice as the carefully cropped and cleverly lit photos on their website. I am a fussy sleeper and I found the beds far too soft - I think the mattresses...

Someone mans the desk 24 hours a day. We have stayed there twice and have had two difreant appartments. The one we liked the best had seperate doors for the bedroom and lounge. however, both were good.

As an apartment it offered more room than a hotel and convenient car parking. The lounge and bedroom were certainly spacious. The room was serviced daily and reception has a number of necessary supplies for purchase. In fact staff went out of their way to quickly obtain an item not in store. Some effects of the recent earthquake can be...

Good proximity to town and [retty good service. Rooms and environment are rather dated which was dissapointing. Bed was really soft which didn't help our sleep but we didn't ask to move. Units were very roomy and were serviced daily to a great standard. So if you don't mind the dated /old school look then a great place to stay.

Although rather dated the Chateau Blanc Suites are a charming place to use as a base to explore Christchurch. Other family members have stayed here before and while they think it gets a little shabbier each time they always return when visiting the area. The size and location of the accommodation coupled with friendly, helpful staff really do make it...

The hotel apartment is clean, bright and airy. Fully kitchen facilities and strategic location. The apartment/suite makes you feel like home. The staffs are friendly and polite, especially 'Alice' ( hope I spell her name correctly). Highly recommended for family traveling with young children.

As with other reviewers, we have been really impressed with the location and spacious room style of this apartment block. We have walked round Hagley Park and Gardens,being only 50 metres or so away and had some success at the casino which is 2 min. away around the corner. The Town Hall and Cathedral Square and Shops are a 5...

Having just come back from another visit to Christchurch and a retiurn to Chateau Blanc Suites we were not disappointed. This Aparthotel gives you greater flexibility and is much more homely than a hotel, having fully serviced spacious apartments with a lounge and fully appointed kitchen area, to give you a self catering option if required, seperate bedroom, bathroom and...

I've stayed here several times now for a regular business meeting. They are always friendly, welcoming and leave you to get on with business and relaxing without interference. Rooms are spacious and pleasant, beds comfortable, staff helpful and accommodating. They seem happy to work there too! Self catering with decent provision of cooking utensils and appliances. Close to the city...

This is a much better option than a hotel stay but I will agree with a previous reviewer who said the rooms were dated. It was just a tad 80's looking and a bit tired. Good points - brilliant location. Rooms are a good size and really decent size balconies. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I'd still recommend it...
