Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

This was my second time staying here. I like the hotel and the staff are friendly and helpful. I do recommend staying here.

There's only one issue. A lack of restaurants nearby.

This hotel is above The Running Bull bar and grill but the service at the restaurant is not that good and the food is a bit ordinary.

Breakfast is by room service only.
Upside is free wifi and satellite television.

The hotel is across the road from Hagley Park and if you go left into Nth Hagley Park there is a very pretty Botanical Gardens to walk around.

The city center is accessible within a 15 minutes walk through the park.

Getting accommodation in Christchurch can sometimes be a challenge these days (post earthquake) with a high demand for available beds. I have tried several places so my recent stay at the Parkview on Hagley was a first time visit. What I liked was the spacious, modern room that I had (301).It was a studio style room with bed, couch, dining table and chairs, and two casual chairs all in one room. But there was plenty of room. Ranch style sliding doors opened up on to a small balcony albeit that the view was over the car parking. That didn't concern me.
The car park was also a plus for me. There was plenty of space starting with covered parks at the lower levels where parking is shared with a restaurant in the same building to guest only parking on the top open air level. For the purpose of my travel access to and from the hotel was easy as I headed south on Riccarton Road and arrived back in the evenings via Deans Ave. Both were left hand turns without any traffic congestion problems which can be a very real issue in Christchurch at present.
The office hours I recall were 7am to 8pm so if you arrive later in the evening, as I did, you will likely find your welcome envelope with entry instructions taped to the office door. Everything was very clear and presented no issue.
I cannot compliment the restaurant in the same complex based on my experience. It was the only negative but shouldn't be interpreted as anything to do with my hotel stay. There are plenty of other dining options a short distance away down Riccarton Road.

We stayed here twice once when we arrived in Christchurch and once the night before we left. The clerk even gave us the same room. The rooms are huge and really comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was an added bonus. The view out the rooms are not great, but everything else was awesome. The rooms were a little more expensive than other hotels of comparable amenities in New Zealand.

Our two night stay was comfortable. The room was clean, modern, had great facilities, and the hotel was quiet. It is close to the town, and has lovely views of the park. The staff were minimal, as we stayed over the Christmas holiday, but the lovely girl who checked us in was helpful, as was the manager

Clean and spacious rooms. Free WiFi, lots of Sky Channels, Very friendly and helpful staff. Handy to Riccarton Road restaurants and right opposite Hagley Park. The rooms facing onto Deans Ave and Riccarton Road are lighter with bigger windows but can be noisy with morning rush hour traffic as the hotel is right on a busy round about. Recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Riccarton Road are lighter with much bigger windows.

We stayed here by chance having spotted it whilst on the lookout for somewhere suitable to stay in Christchurch. We only planned to stay one night but found our room comfortable, spacious and well located so we used it as a base for three nights. Plenty of good restaurants close by, and close enough to the CBD for those who enjoy a pleasant walk through the park. Only negative is that it is located on a busy road but once the windows were closed the noise of the traffic was barely audible. Would have liked a park view and probably could have asked for one. It did seem odd that our room had a well equipped kitchen, except for a stove top/oven - just a microwave for cooking. Not an issue for us as I had no intention of cooking. Would definitely stay there again.
