Classic Villa is a classic destination!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Apr 2024
This is a fantastic place to stay in Christchurch in beautiful surroundings and close to restaurants and shopping. Our room (that's it in the photo) was stunning, spacious and beautifully decorated. The managers Steve and Jackie were terrific - personable but professional and very welcoming, as well as helpful about local suggestions. Breakfast was excellent.

We stayed at The Classic Villa for 3 nights during our holiday to New Zealand, and on arrival we were told that we had been 'upgraded' to the suite, which was a great suprise. The suite was superb. Very quiet, spotlessly clean, quiet, and comfortable. The main attractions in Christchurch were all a pleasant walk away. Jackie and her husband, were excellent, and very helpful, 'hosts' - it really felt more like a B and B than a hotel. Breakfast was very good, and we were absolutely delighted with everything about our stay. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the end of February for 3 nights .The villa is very central; walking distance to botanical gardens. It is a very beautiful and clean place . It has period features which I loved . The owners Jackie and her husband made our stay even more special ; they are a very lovely and helpful couple. If we go to Christchurch again, we would definitely stay here again.

Room tip: Their patio is lovely to cool out.

Absolutely beautiful private hotel run by wonderful hosts. Very welcoming, helpful & genuinely friendly. We stayed in the King Suite, which was very comfortable with a lounge area equipped with a large flatscreen tv, refrigerator plus tea & coffee making facilities, a very nice bathroom & very large bedroom with king bed & also equipped with wardrobes & large flatscreen tv.
Downstairs is the breakfast area, guest lounge & outdoor area for relaxing in.
Check in is any time after 11am & check out by 11am. They’re happy to store luggage & invite you to use the lounge after check out while waiting for pick up.
This was a memorable stay & we hope to return.

Room tip: Parking is available on site & the tourist tram stops out front.

Very welcoming boutique accommodations, situated conveniently to bars, restaurants, shopping and attractions. Steve and Jackie could not have been more gracious hosts - always checking in with any requests and ready with lots of local suggestions of things to do, where to eat etc. Breakfast was toast, fruit, yogurt. Only suggestion - more protein at breakfast like hard boiled eggs or something hot like oatmeal. Would definitely stay here again.

Superb experience and location. We stayed here and would again. Breakfast is buffet style and was great. We had a front room and it was huge. There are lots of place to relax in the common areas. The rooms are quiet and the blinds are good. Parking is tight but you can walk the downtown area quiet easily.
