Wonderful friendly hosts, comfortable room with a great shower. Lovely garden. Safe residential neighborhood to stroll. Because we had to leave early the next morning, we appreciated the delicious filling breakfast they packed for us to take with us.

We were extremely fortunate to stay at such a wonderful B&B for the last two nights of our NZ holiday - a perfect end to an amazing trip. The welcome that we received was second to none and both the accommodation and breakfast were superb. It is obvious that Fay & Lindsay really enjoy meeting and looking after their guests....

Each B&B stay will be unique. The opportunity to share and enjoy good company and food is one of the many pleasures we enjoy about operating our B&B. We would also highly recommend a two night stay. Christchurch has so much to offer. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
