Heartland Hotel Cotswold

Located on the east coast of the South Island, Christchurch is a city of contrasts. It is a place where its residents continue to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle amidst a natural environment world-renowned for its beauty. A growing cosmopolitan ambiance also adds a touch of excitement without overt flashiness. There is nowhere else in the world where within two hours of an international airport you can ski at a world class alpine resort, play golf, bungy jump,go rafting, mountain biking, hot-air ballooning, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world class wineries and gardens. The city centre is comfortingly compact and the most delightful central feature is the gently winding Avon River. On its grassy banks lined with poplars and weeping willows, office workers and visitors join street entertainers, seagulls, and ducks for lunch in the sun.

Heartland Hotel Cotswold’s distinctive Tudor style architecture is a perfect fit with Christchurch’s reputation as the ‘most English of cities outside of England’. This Christchurch hotel is located on the edge of the Christchurch Business District. It’s an easy stroll to boutique shopping at Merivale Mall, Christchurch Casino, and the beautiful Hagley Park. Full of character, Cotswold is warm and welcoming, and the perfect place to relax during your visit to Christchurch. The spacious grounds feature award-winning gardens, and there is always a seat waiting for you in the Earl of Essex Bar. Just twenty minutes drive from Christchurch airport, Heartland Hotel Cotswold is well positioned for travellers visiting on business or for leisure.
