Very well situated close to the Centre. We had one of the superior rooms and it had 2 Queen size beds in it. The beds were very comfy. Once again a little more bathroom shelving would have been great - this seems to be an issue generally. There was a lovely continental breakfast and then a hot dish was offered.... More

Very accommodating in allowing us to check in very late at night after a long flight. It's a short drive from the airport and very well located for the botanical gardens and the museum. Lovely room, excellent cooked breakfast and looked after our bags for us while we explored Christchurch and found our hire car. Thanks!

The b&b is conveniently situated, with parking at the back if you are driving. Room is spotless and comfortable, and staff are accommodating. The breakfast was plenty, giving us a great start to the day. Our room (room 4) was a little snug for two (with luggage) so guests may want to opt for slightly bigger rooms!

Jan, our host & the other staff members could not have been more helpful. Our room was beautiful, very comfortable & clean. The scrambled eggs for breakfast were 'best ever'. Thanks for the great start to our holiday 👍🏻

We had a great time, very clean and well-maintained building with professional staff and clean accommodations. Breakfast settings were already placed in the evening we arrive with buffet stylefood and hot to order bacon and eggs served in the morning. Location is perfect with easy walking to city center and botanical gardens on the other side.

We were thrilled to arrive at Orari B&B and find a charming, beautifully decorated home with everything we hoped for and more. The staff were warm, friendly and helpful. The lounge - where we enjoyed an evening drink with other guests and sunny breakfasts - was a lovely bonus. Our room was cosy but spacious - and the bathroom large... More

Be sure to come and stay at Orari again next time you're needing a break away for the weekend! We don't do these things often enough when we're local but I hope now you've had a taste of dining out and staying the night in the city, it will become a regular treat for you both.

We booked Orari as we were going on the Tram Restaurant that night and needed an overnight stay. We decided on this boutique bed and breakfast instead of the central chain hotels. The position of Orari was perfect for the city centre (and museum and art gallery across the road). The hostess was wonderful and very helpful (even though we... More
