Top tips for finding the perfect New Zealand hotel

  • If you want the best mix of heritage and nature, Christchurch is the place to be. The stunning gardens and parks and the peaceful Avon River have contributed significantly to giving Christchurch its unofficial title, New Zealand’s garden city.

It sits at the center of this grand city with easy access to Hagley Park’s botanical gardens and the Bank’s Peninsula.
  • Welcome history lovers, Dunedin awaits. Different types of heritage buildings are scattered across the city, with the only Larnach Castle in New Zealand found in this city.
