There are various accommodation options depending on your needs. Deluxe rooms sleep two to four people and offer either a king bed or queen bed, or two double beds. Premier rooms are a little bit more luxurious than deluxe rooms, overlook the tranquil gardens and offer plush linens, bathrobes and slippers. Executive suites offer a separate living area and bedroom, as well as a luxury en-suite spa bathroom and shower, while the Presidential Suite is the most luxurious of all, set on the third floor with a view over the rose gardens, featuring a kitchen/dining area with private balcony, a king bed and an ensuite with spa bath and shower. All rooms are simply furnished and decorated and feature amenities such as tea and coffee-making facilities, fridge, hair dryer, Sky TV and an iron and ironing board.
The hotel offers an extensive range of activities to enjoy on-site. For example, take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, build your stamina in the on-site gym, hire a bike and explore the nearby surroundings, enjoy a game of golf, practice your backhand on the tennis courts, order a hamper and take the family for a picnic, enjoy some time on the putting green, or simply relax in your room and watch a movie. The centre of Christchurch with its numerous attractions, cafe, restaurants, bars and shops isn’t far away if you want to venture further afield. Kids will love the Orana Wildlife Park and the International Antarctic Centre within 25 minutes of the hotel.
The Garden Court Brasserie set in the heart of the hotel overlooking the award-winning gardens is a special place to enjoy breakfast, morning and afternoon tea, lunch, weekend brunch and dinner. In the warmer months, guests can also enjoy dining outside at a table set under the shade of the garden’s elm trees or on the sunny terrace with views over the rose garden. Menus change weekly but tend to feature modern fusion dishes such as blue cod fillet with salad green and French fries, slow venison in Spanish pimento saucy or chicken and coconut curry with rice noodles and Asian greens.
