The service from the moment we stepped in the doorway to check out was nothing short of exceptional. First class service that has left a lasting impression. I cannot recommend Novotel Christchurch high enough!

The view over the demolished cathedral, it is a unique perspective of the destruction from the earthquake.

Great location. Within walking distance to attractions and restaurants. Rooms were clean and modern but very small.
