“Lovely place to relax and recover”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

After a long days work, I flew into Christchurch just before midnight. The TotP is a short drive from the airport and that was what I really needed (the last thing I wanted was a long drive from the airport).

I only stayed for a night, but the stay was well worth it. The room was very neatly made up and was extremely clean. The bathroom is a place I look at closely at each place I stay at and it was very clean. There were even no signs of watermarks in the shower/bathtub. The beds were very comfortable and fell asleep within 3 minutes.

Fortunately for me, I had a car spot directly in front of my room. However if the car spots are filled, there is ample onsite car spots to choose from - these are less than 1 minutes walk away from your room.

The shower pressure was strong and it really made me relax and fall asleep much quicker. Although we motel is situated on a buy road, I didn't hear any traffic noise during the night nor the next morning.

The complimentary wifi internet access was a blessing because I had landed at midnight and all the telco shops had closed and I wasn't able to purchase anything.

I checked out around 9am, and the lady at reception was very helpful and friendly. I really appreciated the information she provided to me on scenic spots and locations on my visit to Tekapo.

So if you're after a quiet and comfortable place to rest, this is the place for you.

Glad only stayed one night as room was across from laundry, behind a concrete pillar and with no actual parking place. (Family from hell either side of us didn't help either!)
Info from reception was very brief, left very much to sort going into city centre out for ourselves - never quite managed it and couldn't get bearings as previous visit was before the 2011 earthquake.
Didn't need a breakfast but arrangements for this were rather odd as location was a walk away!
Room itself and facilities were fine, for a necessary one night stop it was adequate.

Room Tip: Check room has access to dedicated parking space.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for your issues raised during your stay. We do not offer breakfast service at The Towers on the Park, we do however offer a special breakfast rate at our other Christchurch property The Ashley Hotel Christchurch. With Christchurch constantly under development, we understand how this can be confusing and apologize we could not be more of help. Once again thank you for your review and your comments go a long way to improve future guest experience.

Disappointed that we had to walk 15 minutes to get breakfast, but good for appetite. Room OK, clean but some road noise. Good access to Hagley Park (hence the name) and road to airport. Front of house staff helpful, looked after luggage while we went back to airport to pick up hire car.

4 of us stayed here for 1 night. We arrived very early in the morning and had to wake up a staff member to check us in even though we had advised them what time we were arriving. However, after that little hickup everything was great. Rooms were spacious and clean with all the facilities advertised. Location is very good as it is opposite a large park which makes a very pleasant walk into the center of Christchurch. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Room Tip: If you are arriving at unusual times phone the day before to reconfirm.

Accommodation in Christchurch is still an issue as the city rebuilds following the 2011 earthquake. This motel is centrally located, modern, clean and well appointed and so much nicer than a hotel just across the road!. My room had a large bathroom with shower over the bath, a well equipped kitchenette, a very comfortable bed and large desk. There was also a wall mounted flat screen TV with a good range of channels and free wifi.

The only issue, and it's a minor one, is that reception is not staffed before 7.30am so if you are catching an early flight make sure you settle up the night before.

Room Tip: There is no lift so if you have heavy cases ask for a ground floor room.
