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

The Heritage Hotel is located in one of the historic buildings just by Cathedral Square. The apartments are beautifully appointed, very clean and spacious. There is a gymnasium, spa pool and lap pool in the basement which can be used by all guests. Breakfast is available and in time the restaurant will be reopened for dinner. They have made this...

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

No secret Christchurch has been through a rough time over the last few years, pre-earth quake one of my "go to" hotels was the glorious Heritage Christchurch - well it`s back. In a historic building, the fact it is still standing is a miracle, bodes well for the strengthening work done years ago. No generic hotel room here, ooooohhhhhhhh nooooooo,... More

Stayed two nights in the Heritage Christchurch. The room, (actually they are all suites) was beautiful and the building itself is stunning. Very clean and well furnished and I was slightly surprised to find that i had to go upstairs to the bedroom mezzanine. The suite was huge with a mammoth and really comfy bed, a good sized bathroom and... More

I only stayed one night and I instantly wished I had more time. Situated right next to the ill fated famous Christchurch Cathedral that suffered during the earthquake it is a stunning old world building. 2 story suites and 3 story beds. Awesome nights sleep. No restarant and no breakfast buffet but cooked breakfast was ok and not expensive.
