About New City Hotel

The New City Hotel has been serving Christchurch since the 1930's offering local and international visitors good old fashioned "Kiwi Hospitality"

Our History

Located in the heart of Christchurch, we are the last of the "Traditional Hotels" left in Christchurch's C.B.D. That makes us HISTORIC! In fact our original liquor license dates back to 1864.
