We spent our last night of vacation at Menteith Country House and without any doubt it was our best experience with Bed&Breakfast in New Zealand. The house, located in a beautifully maintained garden, is very impressive with charming, spacious rooms and a swimming pool. Our blue room was tastefully decorated, with a big, comfortable bed, tea/coffee facility, complimentary soft drinks...

Needless to say, Arriving in ChristChurch after 31 hours of travelling from Canada, we were both tired. Faye and Stephen welcomed us with warm hospitality. They assured us that we could come directly from the airport (shortly after 9:00 am) and that we could shower, relax or sleep for the day. The use of our room so early and the...

Fay & Stephen TOP THE LIST when it comes to hosting families in their elegant home. In all of our NZ travels, this couple went above and beyond to not only meet all of our needs; they joined us in a way that made us feel more like family than guests. The home and grounds are lovely; a true country...
