Huntley House - 67 Yaldhurst Road, Christchurch

First Class Accommodation

Huntley House provides guests with a quintessentially Christchurch experience. A former homestead belonging to one of the city’s earliest settlers, Huntley House has been lovingly restored and is a fine example of late 19th century architecture.

Surrounded by mature gardens and towering trees, guests can luxuriate in a peaceful, tranquil haven just minutes from both the central city and airport. It is the perfect locale from which to explore Christchurch or venture further afield for a variety of exciting day trips – to Akaroa, a delightful French coastal settlement; Waipara Vineyards, to sample stunning Pinot Noir; or to Russley Golf Course for a round on one of New Zealand’s stunning championship courses.

Huntley House offers 15 rooms and suites, along with dining and bar facilities, a superb library and a Billiard room. A variety of accommodation types offer the agent a range of options. There are four homestead rooms, four garden rooms, four garden suites, two two-bedroom garden suites and one nautically themed cabin.
