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.

We stayed at 1 bedroom suite for 3 nights, very happy with its big size and facilities. Especially travelling with young kids, the laundry facilities are essential. The hotel was more built more than 100 years ago, but still with good construction. We loved the grand stairs!

We stayed just one night here during a bus tour of the South Island. It’s a beautiful renovated former government building. We were given a spacious room with a very comfortable bed. We wish we had more time here.

Christchurch is okay but not a place to spend more than a few days. I agree with Darth check out Queenstown or Wanaka or even vineyard region on north island
