On arrival the receptionist was extremely rude. Later on I asked if she had any maps of Christchurch and she thrust one at me without a word. The rest of the staff were very helpful. I was disappointed with the room size as there was little room for our luggage. The kitchen was extremely small with only provision for two...

Excellent hotel and stay. Overall, this was a great hotel. My wife and I only stayed 1 night but we wish we would have stayed longer. It will definitely be on our list to return to when we would return. Nice size rooms with a great bed. Restuarant was great for drinks and the breakfast was also good!!!

We stayed for two nights and I was planning to discuss the following when we checked out, but the staff member was short with us and did not ask how our stay was. Firstly we asked for a room with a balcony and got a ground floor room which we had to duck under stairs to enter. The bathroom floor...

Nicely done. Well situated between the airport and central Christchurch. Quality cottages and above average service. Whirlpool baths but bathrooms do need better cleaning. Some hairs were found and the bath jets spewed out black particles. Buffet breakfast is a bit expensive at $25NZ/EA. There are other accommodation options.

We had a wonderful time while at the Pavillion. The room was large and roomy. Had a great kitchenette. We LOVED Jimmy's and all the photos and history there. It has parking on site, a pool and a hot tub. I would recommend it highly.

Our room was more like an apartment with two bedrooms, a bathroom and sitting room. Spacious and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant which was offered a good choice and very good quality food. It was easy to walk to the Botanic Gardens and city centre from the hotel. We wished we had planned a longer stay.

We booked into Pavillons Hotel for a 4 day stay in January. The staff are obliging and always available to help with any questions. Pavillons is conveniently located close to the city. There is public transport at the front door if you don't have a hire car. The rooms were clean and well appointed. We stayed in a one bedroom...
