Heritage Christchurch Announced a Finalist

Heritage Christchurch Announced a Finalist in Canterbury Heritage Awards

Heritage Christchurch has been announced a finalist in the Canterbury Heritage Awards in the tourism category.

The awards honour Canterbury individuals, organisations and companies involved in heritage restoration, retention, promotion or tourism. The biennial awards were first held in 2010 and have since evolved to reflect the changing heritage landscape of Christchurch, post the 22 February 2011 earthquake.

“We are very grateful for the recognition of our hotel in these prestigious awards. Every entrant knows the challenges faced to reprise and maintain a heritage building post 2011. We applaud all our fellow finalists in the awards and look forward to the outcome on 15 June,” says Gary Jarvis of Heritage Hotels.

The winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony event at the Isaac Theatre Royal on Friday 15 June 2018.

Heritage Christchurch is set in the 104-year-old government building (OGB) on Cathedral Square. The hotel offers elegant suites in one, two and three bedroom configurations as well as a health club, lap pool and sauna on site.

The building was designed by renowned architect, Joseph Clarkson Maddison, in an Italian Renaissance Palazzo style. It opened in August 1913 and is considered of ‘monumental’ importance to the city by architecture experts.

In late 2017, Heritage Christchurch was named a winner in the World Luxury Hotel Awards in the Luxury Heritage Hotel category for the Australasia and Oceania region and the Luxury Historical Hotel category for the New Zealand region. The hotel was also a winner in the historical category in 2016.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Big Spenders Are Not Our Tourism Salvation

Covid and climate change have been changing the face of tourism. That’s why it seemed oddly premature last week for Tourism Minister Stuart to announce that New Zealand isn’t interested in mass tourism any more, or in attracting the sort of budget visitors who “travel around our country on $10 a day eating two-minute noodles.” Instead, New Zealand aims to focus its marketing efforts on attracting wealthy, big spending tourists. “In terms of targeting our marketing spin,” Nash said, “it is unashamedly going to be at … High-quality tourists.” Really? The comments have raised a few eyebrows overseas, and a few hackles here at home. Nash’s comments have also been something of a gift to an Opposition adept at portraying the Ardern government as a bunch of liberal elitists out of touch with ordinary people...
