My partner and I only stay here for one night but it was very welcoming and comfortable. It has a good restaurant and bar onsite and free parking. My only issue would be that the walls are a little thin as we heard a baby crying for a good couple of hours. But all in all it was a nice...

Suberb service where the staff went the extra mile all of the time to ensure our stay was the most enjoyable it could be. Excellent location and all everything on site you need and more. Additionally the food was great and overall the value/experience exceeded expectations.

I have stayed a number of times since the Christchurch earthquake at Pavillions. (Used to stay downtown, but those hotels are gone and the new ones in the downtown are a bit soulless.) Pavillions has character. The rooms are generally large, clean, and fairly basic. The restaurant has good food, but sometimes silly pricing. Go for dinner and order what's...

Thank you for the feedback your stay with us. I am glad you enjoyed the "soul" of Pavilions. We are unique where we are family owned and operated and our entire team is part of our family.

The best food ever! Have only ever had one nicer seafood chowder. The nicest and most knowledgeable barman ever and manager who were happy to provide local and historical knowledge :-) This place is located in the middle of the city, so roughly 15 minutes to everywhere in the metro area. Most all staff were friendly (apart from one of...

Thank you so much for your feedback on your stay with us. I am glad you enjoyed our staff, food and the location (which is fantastic). It is also pleasing that we could assist you with your ongoing travel. The weather certainly hasn't been on our side for Summer this year and you are correct its definitely worth planning ahead.

Our stay was very nice and the staff were excellent! Jimmy's Restaurant and Bar had excellent food but a little pricey! Our room was adjacent the parking lot so we had to keep our drapes closed which was a drag!

The hotel was nice, but our accommodation (an apartment) was alright. Kitchen was a little small as we had three people and only two dining chair at table. The bathroom leaked a little and was suited for an person needing a wheelchair. We didn't. Beds, themselves were great and very quiet.
