We were moved to Pavilions for a night because our tour company made a mistake in reservations. We were told we were given an executive room. I would give the room an OK, not great. No air conditioning which would have been alright except the room was right at street level and next to the hotel bar. Having the windows...

We were staying in Christchurch overnight before going on a 5 day tour of South Island. The Pavilions is a standard 3 star hotel and provides neat and tidy no frills rooms. There is no a/c so ask for a fan if hot. The pool pictures online are an excellent example of wide angled lenses- the pool is tiny and...

Awesome service, the receptionist was so friendly and just lovely to us. She gave us advise on where to visit in Christchurch (even though we live here and were just wanting a night away from home) We booked the jetted tub room which was brilliant, the room was very clean and had all the comforts you could need. The tub...

Thank you for taking the time to post feedback on our stay. I am really glad you enjoyed your night away. I hope that we were able to let you know of something new in Christchurch perhaps you weren't aware of. The spas in the rooms are great with very strong jets making it nice and relaxing on aching bones....

My wife and I stayed at the Pavilions Hotel for 1 week. The hotel is located to walking and sort driving distances to the city centre and shopping malls. The beds are so comfortable to sleep in, we got a good night’s sleep every night. There were lots of pillows to choose from to get the right height to make...

The Pavilions Hôtel was Fantastic. In a great location, comfortable bed, spacious room, great amenities including a decent hairdryer. The thing that really makes this place is the excellent staff.

We were quite underwhelmed with our stay at Pavilions. While the room was spacious and the bed was comfortable, we were on the ground floor right next to the main road. The curtains had to be closed at all times otherwise people could see straight in, both from the road and also from the courtyard outside our room, and I...

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 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.
