Hotel nearby train station

by Liefding

Hello Christchurch!

We will arrive by train from Greymouth and after arrival we don't want to look for a hotel. Does any member at Christchurch knows a good hotel nearby the trainstation? Hotel/Motel or bed & breakfast. Thanks!

by danielinnz

Hi the city centre is only about 10 mins from the train station and you should head in there. There is nothing much at all around thre train station itself. Wouldnt recommend staying near there.

RE: Hotel nearby train station

by chansomvia

Christchurch Rail Station is a small station in an isolated suburb (no VVV) with no accommodation within walking distance like European cities. There are many motels along Riccarton Road, a 5 minute taxi ride. Or 10 minutes to the city centre for more hotels. The train from Greymouth is the only train arriving that night so there is no public buses. Grab the first taxi as there are not many waiting. Would suggest you ask the motel where you are staying about transport, if you are lucky they may even pick you up, but in any case they will let you know how to get to their place.

Travel Tips for Christchurch

The flat lands

by fishandchips

Christchurch is a very flat city. You get a real sense of this from the air when you are on your way out. The city is squished up against the port hills with homes covering much of their lower slopes. There are two main beaches being Brighton and Sumner with Sumner by far the nicer of the two. There's also Taylor's Mistake over the hill from Sumner. The airport is at the North of the city and in the foreground of the photo. Hagley Park is in the middle of the city and can be seen as the expance of land in front of the lighter coloured buildings in the centre of the photo.

10 Pin Bowling

by fishandchips

10 Pin bowling is a fun way to spend part of a day and Christchurch has several options. One of these is Bowlorama in Iverson Tce off Moorhouse Ave. It has 24 lanes and costs around $13 for a game with a lot of speacials when including food & drink or for multiple games.

We had a kids birthday party here recently and they all had a huge amount of fun. For the smaller kids there is a ramp to bowl the balls from which means that everyone can participate.

The centre is fully computerised so you don't have to do anything except bowl your ball when it's your turn. Your name etc is taken by the assistant who loads it into the system. A big screen above your lane displays your name, shows whose turn it is to bowl and all of the scoring. Very easy!!

Lyttelton

by keeweechic

Lyttelton is the lovely scenic port of Christchurch. It is a wonderful sight driving into Lyttleton from the hills and looking down.

There are lots of little coves and boat moorings and you can reach Lyttelton by driving through the road tunnel or over the Port Hills.

A Great Place for Books and CD's - plus Coffee

by Kakapo2 about Borders

What I like about Borders is that it is so big that you have space even to sit and browse through a book you are interested in, and do not have to step back and forth all the time for other browsing customers.

They have a great choice of books and CD's, many directly imported from the USA - which is interesting for New Zealanders. For overseas tourists the big selection of NZ books about plants, birds, history, hiking, and travel guides is impressive - although I want to give you the tip to check the bookstore at the airport for bird books, they have a fabulous selection. Although Whitcoulls and also PaperPlus have nice stores, Borders surely is the biggest bookshop in Christchurch.

Also the magazines section is impressive and inviting.

If you are exhausted from browsing you can have a coffee right in the shop. The café area (made of Gloria Jean's beans) in the righthand rear corner of the shop is quite big - as are the prices for coffees and cakes. I recommend Coffee Culture next door. This is not only nicer, you also get the large coffees in real cups and bowls and not in cardboard cups... Borders is good if you cannot get a seat at Coffee Culture.

As Borders is right outside the Westfield Riccarton Mall you can also have your coffee in the many cafés inside the Mall.

Regardless of this, Borders is a fabulous shop for those things it is primarily meant for: books.

The Orbiter

by fishandchips

Getting around Christchurch and to its suburbs has been made easy with the introduction of the Orbitor Bus service. This bus travels around Christchurch in both directions and has a total travel time of about 85 minutes to do a full circuit. The bus goes by all of the major Shopping Malls (except Hornby) plus the University, Westpac Trust Centre, Princess Margaret Hospital and the Alpine Ice Skating arena. As it doesn't go through the middle of town you may need to take a bus to one of the malls and change service - eg take the 11 or 13 bus and get off at Barringtons then walk to Barrington St (30 seconds away) and cross the road.

The cost of the Orbitor is $2.50 and your ticket is normally good for 2 hours.

Buses run every 10 minutes on weekdays, 15 minutes on Saturdays and 30 minutes in the evening and on Sundays. They also run in each direction.
