The place is spacious for families. Our family suite comes with a nice kitchen nook. Got a nice living room and bathroom as well. Hotel is about 900meters from a nearby mall and supermarket. But everything ends there. Here are the list of negatives: 1. Very rude reception. We arrived about half past 5pm on a weekday. The lady at...

I stayed here for three nights on a business trip and my colleague and I were put in adjoining rooms, which was very convenient. The rooms are large, clean and fairly comfortable. The decor is outdated and the 12 hour internet connection is a bit of a pain, but overall my experience was good and I would stay here again...

I stayed here for almost a week for business and was generally happy with the hotel, although a few basic things were completely missed. While staff were friendly, the rooms were old, smelled of some strange kind of chemical, and had basic uncomfortable furniture. The bed was great to sleep on and the heat pump actually had the right time...

I was quite nervous about staying here after reading various reviews...but we didn't have time to be picky due to being evacuated from our home during the Port Hill Fires.

Spent one night here and was quietly pleased I had chosen to stay here. At reception, everything was efficient and quick, our room (a two room apartment) was big and clean although one of the rooms had no natural light). The cooking facilities were good, and wifi worked a treat.

Came to Christchurch for an aunt turning 90. Stayed at the Garden Hotel and also had the function there at the restaurant. We wanted clean, comfortable and convenient and that's what we got. The staff were faultless at reception and in the restaurant / bar - cafe. A memorable weekend. Thank you.

I had no issue with the cleanliness of our room. It was spotless, though the paintwork is very shabby and chipped. The kitchen is old-fashioned and not user friendly.
