I spent one night at Argyle on the Park after my 3 week long hiking trip throughout the country. I did not spend a lot of time in the hotel itself, but the time was there, was very pleasant. The second I checked in, I started feeling at home - the hostess was very accommodating, gave me milk for my...

I stayed at the Argyle Motel few months ago for about 4 weeks......I really enjoyed my stay there. Very clean and friendly service from the office at all times.It has a nice view of Hagley Park and is about 5 minutes drive to the city. We definitely needed to cook so we had all kitchen facilities which was very clean....

The ratings for this accommodation make me question the usefulness of trip advisor's ratings. It is very dated, not clean (finding hairs on the bathroom floor is never pleasant), the shower does not fully drain and the metal outdoor stairs mean that you can hear people coming and going at all times. On the plus side, check in was easy...

Recently stayed as an Under 15 Cricket Team. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. From providing a larger fridge to helping scrub the cricket whites.

With the convenient location would recommend to other sports...

We had a very nice 3 night split stay during the start and end of our South Island trip. The owners were so kind and accomodation to the fact that we have a baby and toddler. Room was exceptionally clean. Good location.

Convenient location to shops and park, older style motel but comfortable, could be noisy if room was next to road but ours was in the back and therefore was not affected by road, very friendly and helpful hosts

In short, I would say this: Conviniently located, on the budget, clean, all necessary bells and whistles. We've stayed in this hotel in November 2015. It comes high in my travel agency score (which is Chase) and this score is true. This little hotel located across Dean Av from Christchurch central park.

“Important to ask for a room more to the back of the building as the front rooms are exposed to main road traffic noise. Noise from upstairs rooms can be a little annoying because of timber floors between the 2 levels. We spent 5 nights here all together and would stay here again.”
