    Grand Chancellor Christchurch


    I stayed here in March 2005 and was very impressed. I booked a one bedroom apartment for NZ$150 which is probably a bit more expensive than average for Chch for about right for most big cities in NZ.
    Most rooms here are hotel style- but they do have a couple floors of self-contained apartments which are great if you need to spread out of stay more than a night or two.

    When I arrived they gave me my room key which - upon exiting the lift - I discovered was for a penthouse room - joy!
    My colleague who had checked in several hours earlier was also given a penthouse so it wasn't just me who they smiled upon.

    The room was HUGE- 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms- in a corner with views right across Chch to the Port Hills. Much larger than my apartment back home :)
    Plus I got a free welcome drink at the bar.

    One thing to watch - the breakfasts are very expensive. One bagel cost about NZ$17 - which may sound cheap to North Americans - trust me, when you get here you'll realise that's about 5 times the going rate for a bagel.
    Better to eat out I reckon... when you are this close to so many cafes and resturants there is not much of an excuse

    Unique Quality: Central location
    Great views
    HUGE rooms
    Go for the apartments with full facilities - some have spa baths

    Directions: Right in the CBD- you won't need transport to explore the city and museums etc
