Dated elegance

We were there over Christmas, and services were greatly reduced. There was no lunch or dinner service on Christmas day, and no dinner on Christmas eve. We had a large suite with a full kitchen and the bath and bedroom on a loft area above. A washer/dryer was included, but the dryer barely worked. We got a sheet to put over the sofa as it was really quite dirty looking. They only provided one use of internet/24hrs, maximum 1 hr. They staff were very nice and friendly and tried to be helpful. The best part of the visit was the botanical gardens, beautiful. Don't take the tram, it is $10 but only runs 1 km. The city is still devastated from the earthquake that hit it in 2011.

Heritage Christchurch

We stayed for 3 nights. The location in the heart of Cathedral Square is perfect -- close to the museums and the Botanic Gardens, with lots of restaurants nearby. Despite the earthquake 3 weeks before, the city is in marvelous shape and the aftershocks are minimal. The hotel restaurant gave us a 2 for 1 buffet breakfast deal each day of our stay and the breakfast was great. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, arranging for transport to the Railway Station for our trip on the TranzAlpine. Christchurch is a beautiful, very walkable city and the Botanic Gardens were outstanding. We would gladly return to the Heritage.

Great location! [...]

The location of the hotel is just superb. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was spacious and clean. Sadly there was absolutely no view from the room. Maybe I ought to have specified that I wanted a room with a view. Breakfast was somewhat pricey. The swimming pool was quite small. Again, the location was superb.

all as it should be

Convenient central hotel, oppsite the cathedral, short walking distance from the main restaurant strip and the botanical gardens. Clean and pleasant rooms - a bit musty but that quickly cleared with the windows open. Quiet for a central location. (Approx) 25 meter two lane lap pool in the basement of the historic government building next door. Helpful staff who tried hard to make us feel comfortable. Free ride to the train station the next morning.

The Botanical Gardens are exceptional and well worth the walk. We also did the complete city walking tour which was excellent.

Heritage Christchurch

Great location and helpful, professional staff. We easily walked to local sites or connected with transportation. The adjacent restaurant in a historic building was good--we preferred the food ordered off the menu--though the buffet was comprehensive. Highly recommend if you are staying in Christchurch. Our room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. We used as a base for day trips as we were not driving.

Good hotel choice in Christchurch

The Heritage is a very nice hotel located right beside Cathedral Square but tucked away to the side so it isn't noisy or busy right at the hotel. We had no complaints. It was clean, staff was friendly, everything was there that we needed. There was nothing remarkably different than a normal good hotel, but nothing lacking and we would go back for the best feature, the location.

Don't miss the Botanical garden in Christchurch. It is spectacular. The aquarium in the cathedral square that also houses the kiwi bird was worthwhile. The tram ticket is a good deal as well. We went up the bell tower of the church in Cathedral square and got a view of the city. Also nice. Christchurch was a great little city.

Great Stay from Top to Bottom!

This was a great "splurge hotel" at the end of a two week stay in NZ. Got a really good online name your own deal for the hotel and it was totally worth it. Everything was great---the room, the check in, the service, the cleaning of the room, the location, etc. Even has a nice little workout gym with a two lane pool. Didn't try the restaurants because the proximity to really good, moderate priced Christchurch eateries. Hotel is right at the square and a 3-5 minute from almost everything!
