    Everyone else pretty much covered the major things to do in Christchurch (at least, based on what I was prepared for when my wife and I visited). I'm not sure what your hotel expectations are or what you are prepared to spend, but we stayed at Strathern Lodge http://www.strathern.co.nz/ It was everything we needed (especially after the disaster of the first place we reserved), walking distance to shops and restaurants, and the hosts were quite friendly and helpful. It's also a short walk to the free bus route around the city.

    Bit far out for her to travel there for a day visit? I am not sure if she is going to hire car or not, but yes it is good place and IMHO I prefer Auckland's after been there recent.

    It's just behind the airport, surprisingly close to town, but I don't know about public transport to there.
