Property Directions

General Location: Dorset Street is located between Park Avenue and Victoria St. It is directly next to Hagley Park, and is one block below Bealey Avenue.

This is the northern end of the central city, within ten minutes walk of the Canterbury Museum, Botanic Gardens and Cashel St shopping precinct. For evening dining there is plenty of restaurants and pubs in the Merivale area, a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by bus. Or enjoy the shops, restaurants and cafes on quirky Victoria St, just a few metres from our front door.

It's easy to get around too, the airport bus is a 2 minute walk from Dorset House, or walk 15-25 minutes for national bus services.

To reach us from the airport: Catch bus 29 between 6.22am and 10.22pm, weekdays. Weekend hours: Saturday, 6.52am - 11.22pm. Sunday, 7.22am - 10.22pm. The cost of this bus service is $8 per adult, and services run approximately every half hour. Ask the driver to let you off at the first stop on Victoria St. From there it's about a 3 minute walk to us.

Outside these bus hours, you may choose to catch a direct shuttle from the shuttle/taxi zone at the airport. This will cost approximately $24 for one person and $5.00 for every extra person, and will drop you to our door. Please contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you would like us to book a pre-arranged shuttle pick-up for you. Shuttle transfers can also be booked to take you to the airport for outbound flights.

Taxi - the cost of a taxi from the airport to Dorset House will be approximately $45 - 50.

From the train station: Catch a shuttle service ($7), or taxi ($15-20) from the train station.
