“A wellcoming stay on a cold winters weekend”
Reviewed 28 August 2010

We had a very enjoyable stay, the room was warmed for our late evening arrival and very cozy. Handy to city center. We were not aware the All Blacks v Australia (Tri Nations) at time of booking. So the town was buzing.

We were very happy with the hospitality of the family run Pavilions Hotel.My partner & I had so much fun with management & even had a karoke night after the rugby.The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance to Resturants & Cathedrel Square.The room we had was very nice although the bathroom was a little small and we couldn't get over the fact that they had no exhaust fan in there nevertheless we enjoyed our stay of 5 nights.Plenty of parking and very comfortable. I have no problem recommending this hotel to my friends.Debbie & Ryan .... FANTASTIC & thankyou.

We have stayed at Pavilions twice and enjoyed it so much have booked again in early September.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel to anyone.

We loved the rooms and very surprised to find no street noise even though we were right on the street front.

We liked the rooms which were allocated to us 801 or 802 it was so handy for us to go for meals and or a drink.

Thank you for looking after us so well and also being able to leave our car with you.

This hotel was great.....not only was it clean, comfortable,lovely surroundings,excellent service but it also provided an amazing atmosphere. This is a family run hotel and that shows with every attention to detail in order to make your stay a great one! It is also a short distance into the city centre where there are lots of fine restaurants,shops and bars! I will definitely be back!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband, son (2yrs) and my husbands parents, one night when we first arrived in Christchurch and then one night at the end of our ten day driving holiday.
The first room we got was on the ground floor. It was quite spacious and had a large spa bath in the bathroom. Although it was clean, large and warm it was by no means "modern" apart from the tv. That said this is a "budget" hotel and the room was good considering what we paid.
The second room we stayed in was on the top floor, this room wasn't as good in my opinion. It was smaller and had a very small bathroom with no bath. Not so good when traveling with children. However it was still clean, warm and the beds were comfy.

We ate at the restaurant on our first night and all of us ate something different and we all enjoyed our meals. The fish was especially good!

I can't say much about the location as we had a car and only really sleep and then left early. But I did notice it was near a lot of restaurants and other hotels, but I have no idea of the walking distance to the city.

Overall I would recommend this hotel if you want somewhere nice and clean to stay but don't want to pay too much. Just be careful which room you get if you are traveling with young children.

This was our first vist to New Zealand,used the free phone in the airport to phone the Pavilions hotel for free pick up,our room was on the first floor, very clean,large sitting room plus bedroom,and spacious bathroom.We didn't use the restaurant at all as we were room only,there were restaurants and cafes near by all within walking distance.To walk from the hotel to the center of cathedral square took about 20 minutes.Would recommend the Bailise Irish Pub in cathedral square for a meal, it was excellent.The botanic gardens are worth alook,there's a free shuttle bus that goes round Christchurch,also a tram for a small charge.
