New Zealand’s oldest city, Christchurch is the capital of the spectacular South Island and one of the most charming cities in the world. Known as the “Garden City”, the city’s natural splendour is sure to win the affections of even the most discerning traveler, and whatever your tastes we have a Christchurch hotel to suite. With lush green open spaces, floral and architectural beauty coupled with an exciting downtown precinct, Christchurch offers something special for everyone. Cruise down the gorgeous Avon River, stroll through the beautiful botanical gardens, or ride the scenic 955 metre high Christchurch Gondola to view all the city’s charms as well as the rich surrounds of Lyttelton Harbour and the wider Canterbury Plains. Just a taste of Christchurch’s other must-see landmarks include the popular Art Centre Market, Christchurch Cathedral, Christchurch Art Gallery and International Antarctic Centre, all within easy striking distance of our Christchurch accommodation options.
