I was very surprised by the elegance of this hotel. Booked what I thought would be a normal "room" at a reasonable price and found that it was a 2 story 2 bedroom apartment ... Complete with washer dryer and laundry soap! Elegantly restored in the middle of Christchurch downtown devastation. Highly recommend!

The accommodation is very impressive. Wide passages and double volume ceilings. Great way to experience Christchurch heritage buildings. Centrally located although very quiet inside the establishment. Well worth the visit.

The comfort, attention to detail, well-furnished and fitted rooms, and great facilities were all we could hope for at a time when we needed rest and relaxation. Getting to/from the front door by vehicle can be tricky at present with the rebuild but the valet parking is well worth it to get rid of any thoughts of parking hassles. The... More

We stayed at the Heritage Christchurch earlier this month on 5 Aug and had such a comfortable stay with such a wonderful bed and heating that we cancelled our B&B stay and came back again for 2 nights from 15-17 Aug just a week ago.

Very impressive hotel in the heart of Christchurch just behind damaged Christchurch Cathedral. Good-size and comfortable duplex-suite with bedroom(s) on mezzanine. Pleasant a la cart breakfast. Guest can also enjoy gym and pool on the basement floor.

We stayed 2 nights at the end of our holiday in New Zealand. There is so much space in the apartment, and lovely to have our own staircase up to the comfortable bedroom and bathroom. There is noise outside from all the rebuilding around the hotel...the jackhammers start at 7am on the dot...but this did not disturb us too badly.... More

This hotel is wonderful in every way - location, room size (huge!!!), feels like a home room not a hotel room.

Parking was very affordable, restaurant breakfast was a very high standard and good portions. The quality and age of the hotel was outstanding.

This is a very stately hotel in the center of the city. It was spacious and the staff were especially helpful during our stay. Very quiet in the rooms and old school in its very wide halls and grand center staircase. Christchurch was hard hit, but this hotel is an oasis in the city center.
