Quaint Historic Hotel with a View
Quaint, 7 room oldtime hotel. Owners were great. Be sure to get a bayview or you'll be disappointed. Restaurant/bar was great, addedto the feel. The seafood chowder was awesome, a real meal! Biggest issue is shared baths. For us, not. There are two 1/2 baths for everyone. And robes supplied.

An idyllic hide-away
Governors Bay hotel is a gem - tucked away next to the Lyttleton inlet, with fabulous views of the inlet and mountains from the balconies, yet only 20 mins away from Christchurch. (This journey can either be through the Lyttleton Tunnel under the mountains, or the BEST way - over the mountain pass with its breath-taking view of the Southern Alps and Canterbury Plains!) Friendly, helpful staff and relaxed quiet atmosphere. (Just be warned.... there are stairs up to these first floor rooms - no lift as it is a traditional inn, and the mattresses are rather soft.
