2018 Winner

Heritage Tourism Award

Heritage Hotel, Old Government Building (OGB)

Entrant: Heritage Christchurch

This substantial Heritage NZ category 1 Hotel opened in 1913 and designed by J C Maddison was one of the few central city buildings to survive the Canterbury earthquakes largely intact.  Its survival is a testament to the quality of the original design and construction and today its strengthening and restoration are a symbol of resurgence after the disasters.  Its completion has been widely recognised in the media and in the tourism industry for not only the retention of the building but for the very high quality of the result.  The awards jury can attest to this, using one of their luxury rooms for deliberations.
