Peter and Jan are wonderful hosts, the hotel is clean and close to the center of town and the breakfast is fantastic. My wife and I stayed there on the first night of our holiday. We knew we would be back in Christchurch at the end of our vacation and after staying there we booked our last night at The Classic Villa. We will stay there anytime we are in Christchurch.

Best location in Christchurch. Across from the Arts Center and the Canterbury Museum and botanical gardens. Many nice restaurants and shops nearby. On two of the three mornings we needed to leave before the breakfast serving time and Peter was up to serve us our continental breakfast and tea and coffee.
