Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch

Relax into the rhythm of a city stay in the south at Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch which overlooks the Alps and the river, Avon. Whether your treating yourself to a romantic night in or in town for game night, this stylish hotel puts you in the middle of the action.  Cathedral Square, Christchurch Art Gallery and Victoria Square are on your doorstep and close to the vibrant food and bar scene that’s emerged in the city centre or surrounds. 

Rendezvous Christchurch is right next to the Christchurch Tramway, allowing you to jump on a restored vintage tram for a tour around the city. If you’d rather explore on foot, the city’s beautiful Botanic Gardens, Hagley Park, Canterbury Museum, and the Cardboard Cathedral are all an easy walk away.

And, in a city that embraces art in all forms and nurtures a vibrant and growing art scene, you won’t have to go far to spot a huge mural entitled Rising Tide by artist Richard ‘Pops’ Baker on the walls of the hotel itself. Plus, Christchurch’s revitalised shopping scene easily offers a day’s distraction and for those that want to answer the call of the wild, the city’s crisp winter’s days and soft powder of nearby ski fields are almost impossible to resist.

Spoil yourself with 24-hour room service, a comfy bed, friendly staff, and Rendezvous Christchurch’s trademark five service.
