In these uncertain times, The Tack Rooms is the ideal place to find a cocoon to make your own. A place where you can have the space and comforts of home, and enjoy the quality of curated finishes whilst feeling secure knowing that your stay is contactless with a keypad entry. The Tack Rooms is also practising 'room distancing', whereby each suite is blocked out for a minimum of 27 hours between all guest arrivals and check-outs.
The Tack Rooms are one of the city’s most innovative and unique accommodation options that doubles as an equally spectacular event space.
Originally constructed in 1967, the two buildings are neatly tucked into the lush landscape which gives a nod to Hagley Park, Christchurch’s green crown jewel located just down the street. Since their construction, The Tack Rooms have served as classrooms, army barracks and art studios. Now, however, they’re an exceptional spot to rest your head, relax, take a stay-cation, throw a party or any combination thereof with your bubble.
Before you even step inside, the two pavilions' visual character and charming location begin to hint at the experiential aspects that define the Tack Rooms. The gardens, greenery and spacious porch area offer outdoor appeal to match the exciting interiors of the two suites located on either side.
Inside the Tack Rooms you’ll find earthy tones, choice fabrics, beautiful joinery and carefully chosen accents which make them a treat to experience every time you visit. The understated luxury is welcoming and homey yet still manages to give you a ‘world away’ feeling.
The two suites both feature original gable ceilings and full length windows for maximum natural light and spaciousness while the custom-designed full kitchens doubles as ideal work spaces. The lounge areas include a complete entertainment console so you can have a movie night or watch the news with your morning coffee.
The master bedrooms have, again, been designed exclusively for the Tack Rooms character and ethos. Both feature plush bedding and sit-alongside free-standing bathtubs for a bit of old world glamour. The tiled bathrooms offer open showers, underfloor heating and organic ASPAR bathroom products - all of which make it hard not to relax.
These beautiful, historical spaces can also be hired for events. Events at the Tack Rooms are curated with the same attention to detail and customization that can be seen in their overall design. The gleaming kitchen spaces can be activated for catering and socializing while the deck area and lush outdoor features add an al fresco element to any gathering. Linked by laneway to Hotel Montreal and the Polo Bar, it’s the perfect spot for a long lunch, dinner or special evening.
