Stayed for three nights at this property. Would highly recommend it, lovely suites, with a ground floor sitting and kitchenette area and a top floor bedroom. Nice high ceilings. Centrally located .Very courteous and helpful staff. One downside is that they charge for parking.

Lovely relaxed hotel. The rooms are very spacious and nicely appointed. The service is relaxed but friendly. Recommended. A bit of old Christchurch in a city that is being rebuilt. Very central location. Near to tram station and city centre amenities.

Sadly only stayed one night but loved the one bedroom apartment with well appointed kitchen which was perfect for making breakfast before an early morning tour departure. The room was beautiful with the lovely wooden banister to the staircase and the amazingly high corniced ceilings. Bed was super comfy too. Fascinating book in the room told the history of this...

Had one night here in a two bedroom suite for our anniversary. Was an awesome old building as other reviewers say. Nice to have pool/spa and a very well-equipped gym too. The bed was very comfortable and felt luxurious. A pity the bathrooms and couch seating weren't quite the same. Good, but not as luxurious or comfortable, considering the price....

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
