About the place

Just send us a message with the dates you have in mind and we can let you know what we have available.

Wake up refreshed after a great night's sleep, thanks to luxurious linen and a mountain of pillows, not to mention the quietness that belies this quirky apartment's central location. Note too the well-placed designer lighting and cool modern art.
Our apartment is a recently re-decorated one bedroom residence with a single sofa bed that can sleep a third guest. If you are wishing to sleep a third guest, please note that the bathroom and toilet are in ensuite format and can only be accessed through the bedroom.

Traveling with baby? No problem. We can provide a highchair, portacot, baby bath and toy box for no extra cost. Please just ask :-)

The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, plus all the utensils, cutlery, crockery and glassware that you will need. There is even a washer/dryer if you need to do laundry on the go!

For corporate stays, there is a desk, iron, full sized ironing board, hangers and free unlimited wifi.
You will have full, private use of the entire apartment and all of its facilities.
The setting of this lovely apartment in Cathedral Junction is within a short walk of just about everything. That includes New Regent Street, Isaac Royal Theatre, and The Cardboard Cathedral. Even better, the Heritage Tram stops on the doorstep.
There are numerous transportation options within Christchurch CBD.

WALK
Christchurch is an incredibly walkable city. The main CBD area has a very flat terrain, and there are all varieties of street art, eateries and shopping to be discovered along the way. Exploring on foot also means there is no need to navigate through roadworks and road closures, of which there are plenty given the massive post-earthquake rebuild effort.

CYCLING
Christchurch is a city of renewal and this forward thinking has made cycling an integral part of its public transport system. Consider signing up for a bike-sharing service where you can share a bike for as little as $4/h . Check out the Christchurch city council website for cycle maps or the Transport for Christchurch website.

CAR RENTAL
All the major car rental and campervan companies (Avis, Budget, Hertz, Europcar, Ezi, Hertz, Thrifty) are located inside the International Arrivals Hall, near the domestic baggage reclaim and provide vehicles on pre-booked or walk-up basis. Rental cars can be picked up and dropped off at Christchurch Airport.

Some other rental car operators provide a pick up and drop off transfer shuttle service to their depot for pre-booked customers. Rental car transfer courtesy shuttles are located outside the Regional Lounge (exit through Doors 1 or 2).

BUSES
The new Bus Interchange is located on the corner of Lichfield St and Colombo St, Christchurch Central. The Bus Interchange is 500 metres away (or a 6 minute walk). There are 26 bus lines servicing all of Christchurch; and all of them stop at the Bus Interchange. Departure and schedule times are clearly displayed on screens throughout the building.

Timetables and route maps can be found on the metroinfo website: ********

Alternatively, visit the Metroinfo Counter - Which is open 7:30am – 6pm weekdays and 9am – 5pm weekends.

TRANZALPINE
Enjoy New Zealand’s finest inland rail journey on-board the TranzAlpine. The best way to take in the South Island’s stunning mountains and the vast Canterbury Plains, the TranzAlpine runs daily departing Christchurch at 8:15 am. It stops at Greymouth for 1 hour before departing Greymouth at 2:05 pm and arriving back at Christchurch at 6:31 pm. The TranzAlpine does not run on Christmas day.

Christchurch Station is located on Troup Drive, Addington, Christchurch (13 minute drive from Christchurch CBD). It is serviced by city buses that stop approximately 300 metres from the station.

HOP ON-HOP OFF DOUBLE DECKER BUS
Hop on and off as many times as you like, while experiencing an informative insight into the effects of the earthquakes and the rebuild effort. A fun and interesting tour of the city that is 1 hour in duration, and includes the following 8 stops:
Canterbury Museum
Mona Vale
Riccarton House & Bush
Westfield Riccarton Mall
Earthquake Memorial/The Terrace
Cardboard Cathedral
Margaret Mahy Playground
Cathedral Square (this is the closest stop to our apartment)
Kids under 15 ride for free. Both 24 and 48 hour tickets are available with buses departing every 30 minutes.

HERITAGE TRAM
Jump onboard a beautifully restored heritage Tram to see some of Christchurch’s leading attractions. Your day-long ticket allows you to get on and off the Tram as often as many times as you like at the 17 en route stops.
Use the tram to go Punting on the Avon, and to transfer to a Christchurch Botanic Gardens Tour.

Departing from Cathedral Junction (our doorstep!), stops include the Avon River, Container Mall, Gothic-style Arts Centre, the Canterbury Museum and New Regent Street. Trams depart every 15-20 minutes.

TAXI
It is advisable that you pre-book a taxi service, particularly if you need to be somewhere by a particular time. Below are some options for taxi services operating in Christchurch.
Green Cabs: ********
Corporate Cabs: ********
First Direct Taxis: ********
Most Taxi companies also offer an online booking process.

UBER
Uber is widely used in Christchurch, and is definitely our personal preference. Much cheaper than taxis and the opportunity to review drivers often results in a better quality service. Make sure to download the app and have it operational before you need to use it.

CHRISTCHURCH AIRPORT
Christchurch International and Domestic airport is a 25 min drive from 113 Worcester Street. The distance is 11.3 km (7 miles) if you travel via Memorial Ave.

Travel time will increase during peak travel times/ roadworks so it is advisable that you factor this in when planning your trip.

In addition to travel time, allow at least 40 minutes for domestic flights and 2-3 hours for international flights when checking-in.
For more specific information regarding check-in, contact your airline directly.

There are also very regular buses to Christchurch Airport departing from Platform C at The Bus Interchange, Christchurch Central.

SHUTTLES
Shuttles provide a door-to-door service to all parts of Christchurch and some surrounding areas using multi-passenger vans. A shuttle can be cheaper than a taxi but you will usually share the van with other passengers and the shuttle may stop at other destinations before your own.

Travel time from the city centre to the airport and vice versa is approximately 20-25 minutes, however, you should allow additional time during peak times, and for the shuttle to make stops for other passengers. Prices vary by shuttle company and you are advised to ask before beginning your journey.
The shuttle rank is located outside the International Arrivals Hall, next to the taxi rank (exit through door 7).

You can book a shuttle by calling 0800 SHUTTLE ********).

The taxi rank is located outside the International Arrivals Hall.

UBER
Uber is widely used in Christchurch, and is a good option for a trip from the city to the airport.

It is advisable that you book an Uber ride in advance if you plan to travel very early in the morning or very late at night.
While this apartment is located in the Quest Hotel Building, it is a private residence and therefore completely separate from the hotel.

The hotel reception and housekeeping are for guests of the hotel only. We have a wonderful relationship with the Quest Hotel Management, and we ask that our guests respect this relationship by being polite and considerate towards hotel guests and staff.

Check-ins must be between 3:00pm and 9:45pm.

While the apartment does not come with a carspace, there is a public car park located on Worcester Street directly next to Cathedral Junction - $8-$12 per 24 hours.

Please be aware that Christchurch City is undergoing a lot of construction and road closures affect the entire city area. We would recommend allowing for extra travel time.
