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 had two rooms for two nights both faced the same problem, the rooms get very stuffy and sticky when warm. During our stay it made it almost impossible to get a decent sleep. We were offered a fan but this didn't really make any difference. The rooms are getting a bit tired

Dear jalnic, Thank you for taking the time to place feedback on Trip Advisor subsequent to your recent stay. We are delighted that you found our location nice. We do apologize for any inconvenience caused due to unusually hot weather; the Old Government Building that houses Heritage Christchurch is a Category 1 building, and is on Historic Places Trust list, which limits us in what we can structurally do to the building, including installing air-conditioning and ramps. Again I would like to thank you for taking the time to place your feedback and look forward to welcome you back shall you visit our beautiful city in the future. Kind Regards, Astrid Hay

Heritage is a beautiful former government building that was saved and converted into a hotel. We had a great suite on two levels, with two bedrooms and bath up and a living room and extra bath with washer/dryer down. The location is very convenient. There is a buzz in the bar

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
