TravelPod Member ReviewsHagley Park Motel Christchurch
The location for Hagley Park is one block away from the park and right around the corner from shops and restaurants.
What the motel lacks in modern furnishings it more than makes up for with the services rendered by the new owner.
He pointed us in the right direction for local eateries and maneuvering around town. Very friendly.
The room was very clean and had all amenities we would want.
