The Observatory, Christchurch


A stunning boutique hotel where funky meets historic charm

This unique hotel is housed in a spectacular 1800s gothic style building, which was once the city’s university. There is a fascinating history of research and discovery here – the lounge area was once a biology lab! But what makes this hotel really special is the blend of heritage and contemporary design.

Each room has been individually fashioned with its own unique style handpicked furniture. Step into a world of bright and bold colours from sunny yellow to deep pink. Lavish William Morris designs adorn the cushions, headboards or wallpaper, while walls feature prints by local artists – part of a charitable group to support young and upcoming artists. Each room features premium amenities, including complimentary high-speed WiFi, air-conditioning, espresso machine, and a Smart TV for your indulgence.

Situated close to Hagley Park, The Observatory Hotel offers an unbeatable location for exploring Christchurch. As part of the Arts Centre complex, there is a great selection of food and drink available. Grab a coffee then wonder around the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens.
