For the discerning modern traveller, The Mayfair is a rare and precious find in the typically heritage-focused city of Christchurch. Here you’ll discover a new form of luxury that is relaxed, welcoming and unpretentious. The Mayfair is a refreshing new hotel experience for Christchurch, one that you’ll no doubt want to repeat.

On a prominent corner of Victoria Street, the dramatic black and glass exterior exudes an iconic presence befitting this Melbourne-style boutique hotel. Inside you’ll find a refined and sophisticated monochromatic palette mixed tastefully with neutral earthy tones. Think elegant, clean lines, soft, warm lighting and fine design that has little need for embellishment. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow abundant natural light and look out onto the beautiful Hagley Park. From the top floor, you can even enjoy stunning views of the majestic Southern Alps while reclining on your private balcony.

In a successful bid to replace unnecessary formality with thoughtful and attentive service, The Mayfair has done away with the conventional concierge desk. Instead, a complete staff of carefully chosen individuals with extensive knowledge of the best restaurants and experiences Christchurch has to offer are available to you at every turn.  However, the 24hr room service menu is so exquisite you may be tempted to stay in and enjoy an intimate dinner with a view. 

Everything about The Mayfair experience is aesthetically pleasing. From the luxurious Byredo toiletries to the gram-worthy brunch menu and lush velvet booths of the on-site cafe and bar - Majestic at Mayfair. Locals who brunch will be familiar with the exceptional cuisine of Nick Tatom, previously Head Chef at Christchurch institution Hello Sunday. As with all aspects of the hotel, Majestic at Mayfair’s offerings, be it moreish brunches, dainty high tea, or the famous smoking cocktails, certainly do not disappoint.
