Good location in the center of the city with short walk to great restaurant. Different from cookie-cutter new hotels, this one has a charm of old building.

Nice adjoining rooms for families Helpful staff Somewhat outside of town but not too far Convenient restaurant with decent pricing discounts for families with kids

Amazing character and nostalgia. From start to finish, our stay was exceptional!

The whole family agreed that it was the best accommodation in the trip. We had paid similar prices in popular tourist places throughout New Zealand. The historic feel was unique and pleasing, and there weren't any signs of tiredness.

We loved our stay. Ryan and Dilshan very kind enough to take care of our needs. Location is awesome. In room service can be a little slow but that was fine with us. I wish we were warned about losing door keys and being charged 50$. Rest of it was a great experience.

Great location and spacious. The staff was quite courteous. Ryan and Dilshan were the best. We had a fabulous time. The pool and Sauna are fun to use. While checking out, I had to pay 50 dollars for the key since we did not find the second one. I wish we were warned at checkin time about the price tag of a lost key which most hotels don't carry. Not a big deal and hence the 5 star.

We really needed some rest after being on the road for a long time and this was the most beautiful and comfortable hotel we had stayed in for a long time.

In visiting Christchurch there are few hotels that are still standing and in good/decent condition from before the earthquakes. The outside of the hotel is really nice and has a classic and timeless feels amidst the devastation still present and the ongoing construction to rebuild the city. The rooms were fine - nothing fabulous and definitely haven't been updated in 10+ years (likely due to funds being tight). We somehow received a two bedroom room, which was fine, but we really only needed one. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable and we received a queen rather than a king sized bed. This hotel is good for larger groups or people with extended stays since there is a full dining room and kitchen, which we really didn't need for a two night stay.

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.

I have sleeped enough after long jorney from Japan, via Australia amd after have beem begun 2am, so tired andbefore of check-out at 11h,with breakfeast.

great hotel fantastic location car parking a bit pricey $20.00 per day considering that you do not need a car to get around christchurch transportation fantastic

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.

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.

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.

Located in the center of Christchurch within walking distance of everything. Good resturant recommendations from staff and a very nice bar next door.

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.

The whole family agreed that it was the best accommodation in the trip. We had paid similar prices in popular tourist places throughout New Zealand. The historic feel was unique and pleasing, and there weren't any signs of tiredness.
