To start planning your vacation to Hotel Montreal
This all-suite hotel is located in a quiet part of Christchurch, close to the park and in an area less affected by the earthquakes than other parts of the city. Sister-property to The George, Hotel Montreal is a modern and stylish base for your stay in the city.
A subtle Argentinean polo theme runs throughout the hotel, with a polo-themed bar, photographs on the walls and an Argentine slant to the dishes served in the restaurant. There is a lovely terrace adjoining the restaurant with a fireplace, pizza oven and rotisserie. Guests can also use the small gym on site, or there are numerous jogging routes to enjoy nearby.
There are 26 rooms in total including a penthouse. All have balconies, a lounge and small kitchenette, as well as the usual mod cons such as WiFi and climate control, and all are open-plan. There are four family suites with children accommodated in the lounge area, two of which have a king sized bed, and two with twin beds. The penthouse takes up the entirety of the fourth floor and is vast, with a huge lounge, formal dining table, large kitchen and balcony with outdoor seating. There is a master bedroom ensuite, and two further bedrooms with a shared bathroom joining the two.
For couples or families, the Hotel Montreal is a great option for your stay in Christchurch. The staff are friendly and attentive and it's well placed for exploring the city on foot.

When to go
The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.
Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.
