Heritage Christchurch Nominated in World Luxury Hotel Awards


Heritage Christchurch has been announced a nominee in the prestigious international world luxury hotel awards.

Heritage Christchurch is the only New Zealand property nominated in the luxury historical hotel category of the prestigious awards, often likened to the Oscars for luxury properties world-wide.

Set in the 103-year-old Old Government Building (OGB) on Christchurch’s Cathedral Square, Heritage Christchurch has been in hot demand for leisure guests and business travellers since its formal re-opening in 2013.

“This is a terrific endorsement for Heritage Christchurch. Guests respond so well to our elegant century-old building. They also comment on our spacious suites and luxurious on-site health club and swimming pool which is an added bonus in the CBD,” says Ana Vivas resident manager of Heritage Christchurch.

The Heritage Christchurch’s OGB has been recognised in the bi-annual Canterbury Heritage Awards in 2010, 2012 and 2014, most recently in the tourism category.

Heritage Christchurch’s building was designed by renowned architect Joseph Clarkson Maddison in an Italian Renaissance Palazzo style and is considered of ‘monumental’ importance to the city by architecture experts. The hotel’s fine-dining Maddison’s restaurant is named in his honour.
