We got a very dirty room. We had to clean the kitchen and floor had chocolate and blood on it. We showed the receptionist and he would inform management. Next day we asked an other receptionist about our complaint and she would also inform management. We also complained by email but no response. For $ 214 a night there are better places to stay and probably you will be heard over there.

We stayed at the Garden Hotel for 8 Saturday nights during May and June. The rooms were always spotless and couldn’t fault the lovely reception staff. It was in a great spot for us as we were spending time with my father who was at Burwood hospital. We had a meal in the restaurant great food and very busy. We also discovered there were a lot of places to eat in the vicinity. If we come back to Christchurch again we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here. Jenny Hall

Generally not a bad facility for the price, however our 1 complaint was bed bugs in at least 3 of the beds in our family room. To their credit, staff did apparently investigate this when we advised them of the issue, however they decided that we were wrong. They did ask for evidence but I did not feel like sharing photos of mine, my daughter and my mother's bodies covered in bites... Just be warned.

Dear Wayouteast102, Thank you for sharing your concern. I am very disheartened to hear that you did not have the most pleasant experience whilst staying with us. We acknowledge that there are a number of variables affecting bites you experienced. We do take cleanliness very seriously. A few of our cleanliness measures are monthly insects and pest control in all of our facilities, individual double inspection on each room being let, internal audit, cleanliness inspection by an external auditor are only some of our procedures to keep up with the standard we strive for. There are a number of other guests who were in the room after your departure who did not have similar issues. This has led us to believe there are other factors that caused this. I do hope however you recover well. Thank you and I look forward to hosting your stay again in the near future, with a better experience I trust. Jason

Eat at this Restaurant at your peril. Food was about as bland as it gets, no flavour, a lot of it was lukewarm and it certainly wasn't worth the price you had to pay for it. Have been here a few times over the years but never again.

We went there for a group meeting and morning tea, Saw the '$14 lunch special' and decided to stay. I always try a fish & chip snack given the opportunity so we decided to stay for lunch. The meal I got was artistically prepared with 2 BIG pieces of delicious fish and a tasty salad with chips. Its was PERFECT. The fish was fresh, the onion rings and lettuce selection was very nice. The price was great and we will be back. The special lunch varies so variety remains a spice for life. AAA +++ very nice.

We had a great stay. We were upgraded to a three bedroomed suite which was perfect. The suite was really spacious and had everything we needed. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly too. Went to the dinner buffet at the restaurant. Came out way too full! The selection was wonderful and the service was great. The food was done very well especially the roasted pork ribs. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend especially if you have a family.

Staff went out of their way to accommodate me at the cafe for dietary needs and service. Note there are no "greens" on the plate as that was part of my request 😉 not how the meal is normally served. Roast beef was tender as!

We were saved by the Garden Hotel at the beginning of the COVID-19 lock down. We were made very welcome and supported through what was a distressing time for everyone. Despite their own concerns staff went out of their way to help us. Our room was clean and had everything we needed to remain comfortable through our 2 week stay. Thanks to all and particularly Zoe who was our first contact when we arrived.
