“Lovely landmark of Nelson.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed at the Rutherford Hotel which looks straight over to Christ Church. I was fascinated by the spire, which is a great landmark in Nelson. Walked around the building which was very impressive and the grounds are lovely so you can take a picnic and sit under one of the trees and gaze across the city.

“Dark but imposing...”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

...the way it stands out on an elevated position is quite cool... it acts like a Beacon as you drive around Nelson and the suburbs...

“What a beautiful building”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

What a lovely experience to go to the Cathedral. Such an awesome building, with its lovely high roof and trhe beautiful stain glass windows. We were there when the Christmas tree displays were there and they were a real treat to see.
