  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The place was next to the park, the property manager was so nice & helpful, the room was clean. None of the furnishings were new but they were clean & well maintained. Despite being near a major intersection, it was rather quiet & it was easy to walk to restaurants etc.. It wasn’t just a lovely park but the botanical garden was also there.

Highly recommend this place!

My husband and I had a one bedroom kitchenette that was more than spacious. The unit was updated and comfortable. Lena at reception owns the business with her husband and is extremely friendly and helpful. It is across the street from Hagley Park where a walk through the huge park will get you to the downtown area There are lots of restaurants nearby and a supermarket about a 15 min walk away. We stayed three nights and tried to get again when we returned to Christchurch but it was booked up. Laundry is $3NZ for washer and there are several clothes lines and pins to hang clothes in back. Highly recommend the Argyle on the Park. If you need a ride from the train station, airport or other location you might try J&L Shuttles. very reasonable.
