Reviewed 4 February 2016

This is a simple city motel but provides great, well equipped, clean, friendly and efficient services....from being able to watch the Australian Open tennis on Sky toa stroll across the road and exploring the botanic gardens and being shuttled to the railway station. Understated and over delivered.

No-frills, reasonably priced motel across the street from the park. Reception was very friendly. We were given a huge family style room with a separate bedroom that we didn't need. The room, while quite dated, was very spacious with a sitting area and kitchenette, and it was very clean and comfortable. Great location walking distance to plenty of restaurants.

So when we arrived the the Argyle after 22 hours in transit from Calgary, getting lost in the rental car and jet lag making the concept of "left hand side" driving pretty impossible - to our absolute dismay, there was no record of our reservation. Tired and exhausted, all I had was a print out of the reservation. You could...

Being new to the business we were a bit nervous as we did not have experience in dealing with those kind of situations.

Great location within walking distance of the centre of Christchurch. Also near the Botanic Gardens. Room was quiet and with everything we needed. We were staying there before our flight out of NZ. When we had problems with our flight, management was very understanding, generous and willing to help. Next time we go to Christchurch, we would stay at Argyle...

the room was very well set up and there was minimal noise from the adjacent guests - good soundproofing. Closeness to the nearby park allowed peaceful walks into the city centre for further exploring. Staff were friendly and helpful

“Important to ask for a room more to the back of the building as the front rooms are exposed to main road traffic noise. Noise from upstairs rooms can be a little annoying because of timber floors between the 2 levels. We spent 5 nights here all together and would stay here again.”
