Popular Chateau on the Park hotel reopens

Chateau on the Park – Christchurch, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, has reopened.

Perched on the edge of Hagley Park, it is the perfect place to provide a tranquil, resort-like stay providing an ideal base for trips to Mount Hutt, local winery tours and beautiful botanic strolls through the garden city.

“We’re so thrilled to be able to offer Chateau on the Park to guests once again. The hotel is very special and we’re excited for everyone to truly experience what authentic hospitality means to us, ” says acting Hotel Manager, Nigel Astridge.

“The hotel has been refreshed including new furnishings, flooring and fixtures. Our signature and iconic restaurant, Garden Court Brasserie, has recently completed a refresh with new paintings, flooring, furniture and crockeries.”

Designed by the late Peter Beaven, the Chateau on the Park – Christchurch, boasts a heated outdoor pool and seven dedicated meeting spaces.

Designed by celebrated New Zealand architect, Peter Beavan, the hotel is designed around an internal moat and a forest of timber columns made from peeled tree trunks, offering a unique experience and a glimpse into Christchurch’s architectural past.

Beavan passed away in 2012 and the neo-Gothic-inspired hotel remains one of his last standing buildings after several were sadly destroyed in the Christchurch earthquakes.

As well as a stunning weeping willow sweeping across the internal yard and a pristine rose garden, Chateau on the Park – Christchurch, boasts a heated outdoor pool, modern fitness room and a free scheduled local shuttle service to the CBD merely 2.9kms away.

The hotel is known for being a go-to for business functions with seven dedicated meeting spaces, 170 onsite parking spaces and a business kiosk to serve guests.
