At Distant Journeys, we want you to enjoy a range of unique accommodation styles during your trip. So, for your stay in Christchurch, we’ve chosen Heartland Hotel Cotswold, with its distinctive Tudor-style architecture. This lovely hotel is likely to make you feel right at home, as its styling and classic charm is reflective of the city’s English heritage.

Heartland Hotel Cotswold is genuinely warm and welcoming – you’ll feel relaxed from the moment you arrive. Its spacious grounds and award-winning gardens mean it’s as beautiful and quaint outside, as it is inside, and well worth exploring.

While located on the edge of Christchurch’s central business district, removing you from the hustle and bustle of the centre, it’s still only a short stroll to Merivale Mall where you can shop the boutiques, Christchurch Casino if you’re feeling lucky,  and Hagley Park should you want to explore the area’s natural beauty.

Your stay

During your stay at Heartland Hotel Cotswold you’re more than welcome to take advantage of the hotel’s fitness centre. Or if you’d like to spend a little time relaxing, just head down to the hotel’s swimming pool for a refreshing dip, or take a seat in the sauna.

Dining at Tudors on Papanui Restaurant and Bar

The styling and atmosphere of the Tudors on Papanui Restaurant and Bar are in-keeping with the rest of the hotel’s character and charm, with its impressive bare beams, wooden décor and grand open fire place. You can start your day here with an a la carte and buffet breakfast from 6.30am. And in the evening the hearty but innovative dinner menu is available from 5pm. If you’d like to relax with your favourite drink, the Earl of Essex Bar is open from 4.30pm serving firm favourites and some new regional beverages for you to try during your stay.
