You can't get a better location. The Heritage is located right next to the Christchurch Cathedral in the heart of town. You can walk down Worcester Street past many shops and cafes on your way to the beautiful Botanic Gardens and the huge Hagley Park, which holds free concerts on Sundays. You can also catch the trolley if you don't want to walk. The Heritage's Maddison's Restaurant and Font Bar are located next door in a beautiful old building. The rooms are clean and spacious.

Great Location Dec 23, 2009
We do hope this hotel is okay after the earthquakes. Andrew and I normally stay in another hotel but this time we were looking for 2 bedroom appartments because we also had my sister and brother in law with us. I found it a lot harder to find 2 bedroom appartments in a good location and a good price but this one fit the bill. We stayed here for 3 nights.

The Heritage Hotel is in Cathedral Square, right behind the Cathedral. There are 2 parts of the hotel though. Although I didn't get to look through it all, what I saw was as follows.

The 'newer' part of the hotel which was where we had to go to reception. There was a doorman who dealt with our luggage and there was valet parking. The other part of the hotel which is where we stayed, was the Old Government Building so if you book the OGB that is it. If you book the Tower, then it is in the new section. The OGB also has a restaurant, a small bar, massage and I believe that the gym and pool are on the lower floor too. Didn't have time to chech them out.

We went out the front doors of reception to go to the OGB to our appartment. By the time we had got up to our room, the doorman was there with our luggage.

The downstairs part of the appartment had the living/dining/kitchen area and a bathroom that had a bathtub/shower/toilet and washing machine and dryer.

Up stairs had 2 bedrooms and a small bathroom with shower and toilet.

It was I think like a mezzanene floor as the bedrooms had shutters that when opened up, it was like being on a balcony as you looked out over the living area.

That could be its only fault. It didn't do much for the noise factor if someone was watching tv downstairs. The second bedroom also had a window that looked out on a laneway. The views were not great but it isn't everyday you get to see the trams passing by.

All in all, not fancy but good location and secure as late at night you have to use the security card to get in. However the reception in the other building is open 24hrs. Great for 2 couples because you can split the cost of the appartment. Would be good if travelling with children but a bit expensive that way.

The first floor has mens and ladies toilets along the corridor. Although that might not be unusual, the outer doors to these are extremely thick and heavy vault doors. Obviously from the days it was a government building. If you take the stairways to your floor, there are also leadlight windows on the landings.
