Heritage Christchurch Reopening

Heritage Christchurch Reopening - for Immediate Release

Heritage Christchurch's Old Government Building (OGB) wing is to formally reopen on Monday the 13th of May. It has been a part of the Christchurch hospitality industry since its opening in 1996.

Designed by Joseph Clarkson Maddison and opened in 1913, the OGB is registered as a Category One Building on the Historic Places Trust register. The building was awarded the Christchurch Heritage Trust Built Heritage Award in 2010 and the New Zealand Seismic Award 2012 in the Canterbury Heritage awards.

The Old Government Building which houses the hotel’s luxury suites and food and beverage facilities survived the February 22nd 2011 earthquake with relatively minor structural damage and with no harm to guests and staff. It has been behind the red zone cordon for the past two years, whilst careful planning and a loving restoration has taken place.

The OGB offers spacious one and two bedroom suites, complete with separate lounge living from the bedroom and full kitchen and laundry facilities, making the hotel ideal for the business guest or leisure visitor to Canterbury. In addition, the hotel has a restaurant and café bar, health club and lap pool on the premises.

“We are delighted to soon see our beloved hotel back in business and thrilled that this unique heritage building has withstood both the test of time and seismic events. We consider ourselves privileged custodians of Christchurch’s past and an important part of its tourism and commercial future,” says Gary Jarvis, the general manager of Heritage Christchurch.
