                          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.

                          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.

                          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.

                          Convenient to the city. Quiet

                          Needs a bit of renovation. It is getting rather old looking and feeling. The breakfast staff were not all helpful

                          Convenient location

                          Very tired decor, finishes etc, not to standard expected for ranking and price - but respect earthquake demands on maintenance

                          Large room. Beautiful gardens, extensive layout of hotel (not another 'box' of a building)! Location - being on the edge of the park. Loan of bikes and golf clubs, access to Hagley Park.

                          Decor is looking very tired as is bed linen. Noisy trolley for porters to use. Overpriced for present condition.

                          Atmosphere, service, parking

                          Not within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants etc.

                          Location was the plus but I would look at other alternative in the area for my next stay.

                          Room service and lack of a weekend paper were the bad aspects of staying at the hotel.

                          The staff were very approachable, and helpful. The Chateau was clean and well organised, despite the damage from the recent quakes.

                          I felt the restaurant was quite expensive, though the quality of the meals were good.

                          Located very near Botanical Gardens.

                          The earthquake damage that was not yet repaired. I would recommend the hotel for it's service, but with a warning about the earthquake damage.

                          Very friendly service, beautiful grounds, shuttle service to downtown Christchurch.

                          food was really expensive, rooms are on the small and cramped size.
