The Garden Hotel and Lodge Tavern Christchurch Reviews

Identity Crisis Dec 14, 2011
This hotel is 5 minutes away from Christchurch Central. Despite its description being a hotel, it's actually a motel because most rooms here have their own kitchenette & that there's a large sliding doors leading straight to the carparks. Unlike Europe, there's a lot of space in New Zealand & so, one word to describe the ground here: sprawling. In terms of amenities, it's within 5 minutes away to the Palms, one of the largest Mall in Christchurch. Then, Garden Hotel boasts the largest buffet restaurant in Christchurch (400 people capacity) & there r 100 dishes to choose from. U'd better book on weekends because the queue is exceptionally long. Then, there's Cafe Atua where u can get snacks & cafe during the weekdays. A stone throw away, there's Stock Xchange, the new reincarnation of Lodge Tavern which got destroyed during the Christchurch major earthquake. Stock Xchange was one of the most popular bar in Christchurch Central previously & because its original location got destroyed, this is a marriage made in heaven. Go & say hi to Gump & Ken, the publicans there when going for a drink because they would tell u yarns that would last through the night. Garden Hotel is arguably one of the closest hotel now in Christchurch City that isn't destroyed by earthquake. Some of the rooms r dated & tatty & do request for the newish rooms. Also, don't mix up with Garden City Hotel because this is a very common mistake made by taxi-driver (I was told). Commendable stay.
