Accomodation in Christchurch

We are traveling to Christchurch next March and have heard there is not much there left standing in the cbd, so we have decided to fly straight to Wellington and then Auckland and only stay one night in Christchurch before we fly home. Could anyone tell me where is the best place to stay with a restaurant the night before we fly home.

There is a wide variety of accommodation outside the Cbd and at least 3 hotels have reopened in the CBD. What is your budget and will you have rental car to drop off or be relying on taxi/shuttle?

Www.wotif.co.nz is a good place to start. My choice would be somewhere on Riccarton Rd or Papanui Rd as there are plenty of restaurants in those areas, and only 15-20 min from the airport.

Our budget is about $150 aus and we will be relying on shuttle to airport.

There are dozens of motels along Riccarton Road and there are also lots of restaurants. We were very pleased with the Aalton, which cost less than your budget. We stayed there when we arrived in Christchurch, taking the bus from the airport. (You would want to be able to handle your own luggage to do that!) We also stayed there our last evening in New Zealand. The taxi to the airport very early the last morning was not expensive as there was so little traffic.
