Chateau on the Park - Christchurch, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel is designed to provide a tranquil, resort-like stay. The 5-acre property - boasting a moat, a vineyard and a beautiful rose garden - makes our Christchurch, New Zealand hotel feel secluded, but it is only 2.9km from the city. From this hotel, you'll be able to walk to Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Hagley Golf Club and the western business district. Riccarton Westfield and the University of Canterbury also are nearby. Ask our friendly staff about the hotel’s Baronial architecture and complimentary shuttle to the CBD as they welcome you with a signature, warm chocolate chip cookie. This charming escape from ordinary life offers smart amenities including seven dedicated meeting spaces and a business kiosk. Enjoy the heated outdoor pool and modern fitness room. Select a refurbished guest room, also available with accessible amenities, a garden view room or a suite with a jetted tub.

Review collected in partnership with DoubleTree by Hilton
We stayed here for one night as a family of 3. The hotel is near the park but the wrong side from the city centre so it is a bit of a trek. On first glance this is a good looking hotel with lots of wood and open fires. The warm chocolate cookie at check in was a nice touch.

Nice hotel on the edge of Hagley Park. Once we learnt about the electric scooters there was no stopping us! Rooms were spacious and had a good level of facilities with a bit of a balcony with a view over the gardens. Gardens were lovely with an English style rose garden taking

I would like the shuttle schedule from the hotel to the city center
I would suggest you contact the Hotel directly as they will have scheduled timings for the shuttle service. It is a very efficient service and they are able to take guests to many places within Christchurch city. We use their shuttle service for our visiting Academics who stay with them and they are more than happy to deliver them to the University.
