    Fabulous

    Liked the easy email booking system that went quickly to reception, to no hassles booking in . Liked the reduction to $140 - have stayed twice at that price - if more expensive, would have gone elsewhere. Loved the garden, nice and peaceful. Sorry to see the elements of earthquake damage - but all seemed to be under control in a no-fuss way

    Fabulous

    The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was outstanding. I had brought my in-laws from the UK on a visit to NZ and it makes me very proud to be a kiwi when I receive such friendly service.

    Rooms were a little dated and could probabaly do with being renovated in the near future.

    Hi, we were treated to a night away by our son for our wedding anniversary. Having stopped there before we were quiite happy to come again. It is a nicely laid out reasonably large hotel. The breakfast we had was very reasonable for price and much appreciated. Altogether a lovely night away. Mike Hill, Whitecliffs

    Chateau is directly opposite Hagley Park and with cheap bicycle hire we were able to get to all the activities occuring in the Park as part of the Arts festival without the hassles of taxi's or parking. The staff are wonderful and the rooms comfortable. Its proximity to everything was a bonus!

    There were hairs in our bathroom which was disgusting. The central atrium area looks terrible. The pond etc needs an urgent tidy up. The whole place feels tired and in need of a revamp.

    Superb

    Best bit was the location to the Riccarton Rd. bars, shops and restaurants. The Chateau restaurant was excellent for dinner and brafast.

    It was hard to find in the dark after driving in from the airport for the first time.

    The room was clean in general, however, the kettle was quite dirty and needed a good clean.

    Really friendly and helpful staff Great location

    In view of the recent earthquakes this comment almost seems unfair but we felt that the hotel seemed a bit "tired" and the rooms a bit shabby in terms of their overall cleanliness and design, they are quite dark.

    The hotel was in an excellent location just a short walk from the city centre through a park & the botanical gardens.

    The very friendly staff.

    As an experienced business traveller it's quite clear the hotel preference is to cater for tour groups, not discerning clientele. The room refrigerator contained absolutely nothing, a certain sign of a mistrustful management. Apart from seeking room service the only way to obtain soft and other beverages was to purchase them from the restaurant - which we did, after making enquiries from the concierge. We also felt the price we paid was too much for what is now clearly an hotel which is 'tired' and has seen better days.
