The Charlotte Jane Hotel.

Mansion survives a test of nature

THE Charlotte Jane Hotel in Christchurch, New Zealand, remains open for leisure.

The old mansion was originally a school for young ladies, and after managing to survive that run in, the recent earthquakes have done little to harm the Victorian throwback, with huge bathrooms, large, plush rooms and touches of elegance throughout.

Our favourite was the stained-glass window near the entrance, depicting the original Charlotte Jane, one of the earliest ships to bring settlers to Christchurch.
