Close to the botanical garden, reStart mall (small but unique), and bus terminal, this quaint boutique B and B was perfect for a one night stay. Parts of Christchurch are quiet following the earthquakes, but the location of this bed and breakfast was excellent. Breakfast consisted of toast and jam. Staff was helpful with recommendations for dinner reservations. Would recommend...

Orari B&B is a lovely property in the perfect location of Christchurch with all sights and amenities in walking distance. Our room on the first floor was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was light and functional with a walk-in shower. Everything was very clean and tidy. Really handy to have stowing space for the suitcases too. Breakfast...

Beautiful old house , tastefully converted. Rooms of different sizes. We had a very large room ( number 5 ) upstairs. Nice bathroom. Good breakfast. In the evening, we met up with other guests in the spacious lounge, enjoying our complimentary glass of wine. Good recommendation and booking for local restaurants, by the manager Jan. Who was very helpful and...

Stayed two nights. Converted villas divisible into separate rooms for the likes of a solo business person. Safe, secure rooms. You can have the entire villa if you want. Appears that lots of tourists use it. Breakfast provided. Continental plus. Very well set up. Not so suitable for young families ( unless you take an entire villa)

Perhaps we were just unlucky to get the room that we got; #1. Next to the backdoor of the premises (everyone passing could look right in and the noise from the tiny wheels on the luggage was sometimes deafening) and at the beginning of the corridor that also provided entry to the shared facilities like the lounge and the front...

Hello Mr Helmich, So many of the many excellent reviews are from guests who stayed in that room and loved it. It is roomy (and at a good rate) with ensuite bathroom and a very comfortable bed and nice and handy to all the facilities. We have several regular guests for whom it is their room of choice. As long...

We stayed three nights here in a comfortable room on the ground floor. The house is large and has a beautiful living area for guests, and complimentary wine is served each afternoon. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious and the staff were friendly band helpful. The B&B is within walking distance of the Botanical Gardens and Canterbury Museum, both of...

Lovely B&B with 10 rooms in the heart of the city, next to park, botanical gardens, museums and the city's iSite center. Cozy but ample rooms, soft terry cloth robes, and a spectacular breakfast selection.

This is one of those beautiful grand houses in a perfect location, walking distance to the city centre. Clean, quiet, well appointed, with a good balance of furniture and functional space for belongings. Comfortable bed and pillows, and a relaxing shower. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. Unfortunately we only had one night in Christchurch.

Such a good find. We had a beautiful room which was very comfortable on the ground floor. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The Orari is certainly well placed - so near to the centre of town and everything in walking distance. On arrival, the receptionist suggested we book an evening meal as tables get booked up. She booked us...
