Certificate of Excellence
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.

This is one of the most beautiful historic hotels I've ever visited, and I would definitely stay here again. The staff were incredibly kind and accommodating, and the food at the restaurant is amazing! It's centrally located, and the room was large and comfortable.

Firstly, this hotel was extremely difficult to find in that the centre of Christchurch is one over-sized construction site since the earthquake. Secondly, the hotel signage is poor and the Heritage sign is hard to spot. If they called the OGB - well, then maybe we wouldn't have d

Hi there! My fiancé and I are looking to book with you for our honeymoon in New Zealand! It’s our first experience there and we’re hunting around for some recommendations for places to stay in Christchurch through June 2018, is there any deals or promotions you could offer? Regards, Joanna Roth And Danniel Ferraro
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
