Positive Reviews

Sparkling clean, tastefully decorated rooms

The guest rooms are widely described as sparkling clean and comfortable, with cosy beds and tasteful decor. The bathrooms also get rave reviews for their high-end fixtures, and the sunny outdoor spaces are widely described as inviting.

A very warm and welcoming host

Travellers rave about their host, noting that she is a warm, friendly person, very easy to talk to, and full of useful information about the city and neighbourhood. Guests quickly feel welcome and at home thanks to her "above and beyond" gestures of hospitality, such as free lifts into town. She is also a talented cook, and is happy to provide hot dishes along with the tempting continental spread offered each morning. Travellers with dietary restrictions are delighted to find their needs are easily accommodated.

A quiet location, not far from the airport

Travellers note that the bed and breakfast is a fairly new building in a quiet, residential neighbourhood that is within a comfortable walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the Air Force Museum. Guests appreciate that the owner offers transfers from the airport, which takes about 15-20 minutes. Christchurch city centre is about the same distance away by car, and the neighbourhood is also well connected by public transportation.
