The enthusiastic hotel opening team include some very committed Cantabrians delighted to be working back in the CBD of Christchurch.

The luxurious Heritage Christchurch Hotel offers beautifully appointed one and two bedroom suites and a fully equipped health club with lap pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. The hotel presents a delicious gourmet breakfast daily, setting guests up for a day exploring the increasing delights of a regenerating city.
