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.

The room was very clean and had all amenities we would want.

... fruit off the bushes in the back garden. The centre of Christchurch - how can I describe it? Well it's weird, there are big holes everywhere, buildings collapsed and have been cleared away. Then you get the buildings which are boarded up whilst decisions are made about them - weird to find once plush hotels and offices boarded up and the place literally is like a ghost town. Some places have been fixed and done up and some of the trams are ...
... of being cheap and easy to construct.
Even almost two years on there are few buildings operating as they were and the trams thunder down the street with few people on them. There are signs of life in the city mall which is a nice street populated by shipping containers which have been made into shops, the idea being to get some life and business back into the city centre.
We did find lots of life in the city park, however, which is delightful. There was a ...
