My fiance and I are heading to Christchurch for four days during October as part of our honeymoon. We are going to spend two nights in Mount Cook so we can do some of the activities offered up on the mountain. The last two nights we want to spend near the city. We will have a car and are not concerned about being in the centre of the city. We have looked at a lot of the accomodation in central Christchurch but havent found anywhere that is REALLY special. Have heard heaps about the George but dont really like that style of accomodation. We love old buildings and LOVE Otahuna but the $1600 per night is beyond our budget. We are happy to pay anything up to $600 AU per night for someone amazing as it is the last two nights of our honeymoon.
Can anyone recommend a place within 30mins of the city????
