Distinction Hotel, Christchurch

Star Rating 4   Official rating
Star Rating 4   Distant Journeys rating

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.

Your stay

During your stay at Distinction Hotel Christchurch you’ll stay in stylish and modern rooms complete with large flat screen smart TVs, perfect for unwinding after a busy day in the city.

Dining at Gumption Restaurant

If you’d like to dine at the hotel, the on-site Gumption Restaurant is located on the ground floor. The menu is described as showcasing rich robust flavours, seasonal favourites and an inventive take on some classics. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant and bar area has the perfect mix of relaxing atmosphere, wrapped in the surrounding vibrancy of the city’s Cathedral Square.
