Having enjoyed our stay a couple of years ago we opted to stay here again during our NZ holiday and we were not dissapointed. On arriving it was nice to be greeted as returning guests and even nicer to be given an upgrade to a suite in the old building which was larger than our flat back home. It had a large ground floor with seating area, dinning area and well equipt kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom were contained on a mezzanine floor which was spacious with ample storage space. The bathroom housed a very useful washer/dryer. Oh how we wished we could have stayed longer. The soft furnishings were luxurious.
The location is right in cathedral square which is really convenient for enjoying the great eateries of Christchurch however it could be a bit noisy but as the sleeping area was on the mezzanine floor it was not really a problem. The old building has been sympathetically restored with the original stairs, doorways, huge vault doors and tiles retained. Will certainly stay here again if we are lucky enough to make it back to Christchurch.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Christchurch is a long way from the Mediterranean - nevertheless, the opulence of an Italian High Renaissance Palazzo awaits you at the Heritage Christchurch. Designed by Joseph Clark Maddison and opened in 1913, the hotel is listed as a category one building on the Historic Places Trust Register, reflecting its status as a building of national significance. The hotel's grand design is fitting: after all, Christchurch is regarded as the Garden City, and is regarded internationally for its culture and refinement. ... more less
