Chateau on the Park - Christchurch, a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #15 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2010

The hotel is a good choice for a quiet location next to the Botanical Gardens yet not too far from the town. However it is a 20min walk across the park to reach the edge of the town centre.

Sounded so great on the website, but what a tired, noisy, smelly and run down dump this was. The room was filthy, the furniture all worn out (bed however was clean and comfortable). The bathroom was really dated and constantly smelled. The staff were pleasant enough but not helpful at all (how do they manage that?). This place has really had its day, and with so many fantastic places to stay in Christchurch, I would give this place a wide berth if you have the choice

It would help English speakers if the reception desk employees spoke a more clearly enunciated English. We had to ask several employees to repeat themselves over and over.

My husband and I stayed at Chateau on the Park on the first night of our month long tour of NZ. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel which was in a good location for us. Situated on the far side of the city park, it meant we could walk into the city (about 10 mins) and not have to negotiate the town traffic when moving onto Kaikoura the next day. The hotel was unexpectedly quite large but quiet and set in lovely gardens. The room service that night was very reasonable and meant we didn't have to go out after our long day. Our room had a king bed, airconditioned and very comfortable. Good value and a good start to our holiday

This hotel was right across the street from Hagley Park and the Botanical Gardens. It was a lovely hotel with very nice, large rooms with balconies or private balconies looking out onto beautiful gardens and pool. The garden area was exceptional

Easy to get to from Christchurch airport. Quiet location with impressive gardens. Fairly standard hotel but the décor in our room was tired and dated. Very comfortable bed though. We made the wrong decision to have the continental breakfast – it was expensive and there wasn’t much choice. Highlight of the visit was meeting Gary the resident cat who uses the lift to get around.
