This well-situated hotel is just 2 km away from the central city district, Hagley Park and the Christchurch Gardens. It is just 5 minutes' walk from many fine restaurants, antique shops and a shopping centre in fashionable Merivale Village. There is a large weeping elm set amongst the spacious grounds. The house was built in 1920 and native timbers and lead light windows are used throughout both storeys of this early New Zealand colonial-style home. The hotel offers convenient rooms.
