Luxurious stay in best part of Banks Penninsula
Great simply to head upstairs to our room after a great dining experience in Governors Bay Hotel. Lovely start to following day with breakfast on verandah overlooking Lyttelton Harbour on a pleasant Canterbury autumn morning.

Great place to stay
We are happy to tell others about the Governors Bay Hotel, just take ear plugs if you want to sleep early on Friday evenings. We would stay there again.
