The hotel is beautiful and luxurious but the prices are still relatively low.Centrally located, it is just opposite Cathedral Junction. The food offered in the hotel is great. The service is amazing. Definately the best hotel to stay at if in Christchurch.

Good suite style room with sitting room, kitchen and laundry facilities - great if you have been travelling a while and need these extras. Beautiful old building in central Christchurch. Clean, comfortable and good value.

Stayed here again after a few years away and were not disappointed with the overall experience. The building is amazing and the service fantastic. The bathrooms are a bit tired but the bed was so comfortable and the whole luxury of the room really made up for this. Although Christchurch is slowly rebuilding the Heritage provides a bit of luxury... More

It is heartbreaking to witness the destruction caused by the earthquakes in the central business district of Christchurch, and this destruction is evident in all directions from the beautiful historic Heritage Hotel. Most impressive were the rooms themselves. My partner, two friends and I shared a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom "suite" with a full kitchenette and two upstairs lofts. The room was... More

If you appreciate historic buildings, you'll love the Heritage. It's in an old government office building where an amazing restoration job was done. The restoration was so well done that it easily survived the devastating earthquake of 2011. The ceilings are so high that they were able to create upstairs bedroom lofts. The suites are well equipped, even have a... More

The room was very well equipped indeed with Champagne and Fudge awaiting us on the coffee table. Massive bed and a kitchen in our digs. Sleep quality was great with minimal noise despite the works going on around us rebuilding Christchurch. Close to New Regent St with cafes etc and the tram stop is literally at your door. Restaurant does... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel over 100 years old. All the rooms are called suites and are self contained. They have full kitchenettes, a large lounge with TV and DVD and dinning table. The bedroom was upstairs in a loft style situation. The entire room was very spacious and worked well. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you're... More
