The Distinction Hotel Christchurch is newly refurbished and located right in the heart of the famous Cathedral Square. Described as ‘an urban escape combining sophisticated smarts and familiar warmth’ the hotel was renovated following the rejuvenation of Cathedral Square.

Its central location means that all the main attractions are quite literally on your doorstep. For example, you can walk to the Avon River in just a few minutes. You can stroll along the banks or take a punt down the river. Not far from here are the Botanic Gardens which is New Zealand’s largest inner city park. There’s a casino if you know your way around the tables, or a mall if you know your way around the shops.

Then there’s the hotel’s exceptional backdrop of the alps and ocean – a truly unique landscape to step out of the hotel and see. And as you explore Christchurch and its attractions further, you’ll quickly pick up on how the city’s urban regeneration and traditional English heritage complement each other brilliantly to create a rather distinctive environment. Plus, with its lush gardens and carefully preserved greenery, it’s clear to see why Christchurch is known as the ‘Garden City’ around the world.
