Have stayed at Millennium but not Crowne Plaza. Internal decoration of Millennium is quite dated, don't think it would be nice enough for honeymoon, although in a very good location for general tourists.

Millennium is in a great central location and rooms are of a reasonable size. They have done some work on the hotel rooms but agree with last post, rooms are pretty basic, decor is a bit bland.

Crowne Plaza rooms are much smaller but if you go for a Club room you get a much nicer room, better amenities and a few extras.

Atrium view rooms at Crowne Plaza have the nicest outlook. Crowne Plaza has great Restaurants and Bars.

However, to be honest the best hotel in town is The George, amazing service and as long as you book one of the newly refurbished Executive Suites then you are getting the best room in town. Of course the George is also a lot more expensive.

Another option if you like personal service is a central B&B. Something like the Worcester maybe, or if that's too personal the Classic Villa. Both right in the heart of town. The cities best known B&B is the Charlotte Jane but it is out a bit so not ideal.

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, we are looking for something a bit nicer. The George appears to be booked on our dates. what are the other luxury hotels that are centrally located (not B&B's)?

Have a look a this website below, use the 'accommodation search' under 'Christchurch' & 'hotels' and you'll get a list of them, with a link to their websites. Also put 'city centre' in the key word phrase option.
