Prior to the Christchurch earthquakes, there were nine Hotels around Lyttelton harbour, we are one of two still in operation and fully restored and repaired to a very high standard. We offer widely recommended gastro-pub fare 7 days and nights per week. Nearby is Lyttelton township, some fantastic walks, world renowned private gardens and a vast array of water based activities.
Lastly, please be aware that if you are visiting Christchurch there is still a very good chance you may experience more aftershocks, we can almost guarantee it. To date there have been over 10,000. For us, this is a daily part of our life's now but we have the upmost confidence in the ability of this Hotel to withstand everything thrown its way.
