The Charlotte Jane

The Charlotte JaneJust minutes from the centre of Christchurch in New Zealand, The Charlotte Jane is perfectly situated for guests to enjoy the city at their leisure. Sophisticated, yet homey… elegant, yet comfortable this grand Victorian house is an outstanding boutique hotel.

This magnificent residence was built in 1891 for Captain Frederick Gibson whose daughters founded the Miss Gibson's Private School for Girls (Rangi Ruru StudyGirls' School) and later accommodated family and up to sixty students. Now, over a century after it was built, the Charlotte Jane has been magnificently restored and refurbished to provide luxury bed and breakfast accommodation.

Each room is individually decorated, with fine furnishings in keeping with the grandeur of the house. There is also a beautiful garden, blending native trees with Outdoor Diningrhododendrons and roses and fresh flowers are throughout the house.

The Charlotte Jane is for honeymooners, couples or business people with discerning tastes and is unsuitable for children under 14 years.

Moira and Siegfried Lindlbauer, the hosts, speak German, Japanese, Spanish and Mandarin, in addition to English.
