This was the last B & B we stayed at in our 8 week exploration of New Zealand and what a wonderful find it was. We had booked in for 3 nights and greatly regret that we couldn't stay for a longer period. We were given a lovely warm welcome by Denise & Bernie together with a welcome hot drink. On being shown to our suite of rooms we were extremely impressed with every aspect as it consisted of a lovely lounge with large TV and a quiet fridge in the corner, it was beautifully furnished and with extensive lovely views down the valley. The bedrooms was also furnished to a high standard and was of ample proportions. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and this room also benefited from good views. The ensuite shower room was finished with good luxurious & tasteful items. Breakfasts are taken either upstairs in Denise & Bernie's dining room or outside on the deck - both options had the benefit of fantastic views down to Pegasus Bay. Breakfasts were of a very high standard and the food was well presented. Thanks must be recorded to Denise & Bernie for their wonderful ability to make their guests feel so welcome and to go out of their way to help with recommendations for restaurants and suggestions for your itineraries. One of the best places we have ever stayed at and we would go the extra mile to ensure that we revisited when ever in this area. Many thanks to great hosts. Denis & Wendy UK

This B+B was one of our favorite stays in 3 weeks in New Zealand. The suite was spacious and clean, the hosts were very hospitable, friendly and welcoming. And the view! Although not from the room, the view from the deck, where breakfast is served and you are welcome to relax, was simply fantastic! The location, about 15 minites outside downtown Christchurch, was convenient and there are good beachfront restaurants 5 minutes away.

Really warm welcome from Denise and Bernie. Lovely quiet room overlooking Pegasus Bay. A short drive to Sumner with its restaurants and some great walks. Really good suggestions for activities and where to eat, also helped book forward B&B for us, we'll be back next time!

Room Tip: There is only one so book early!

Far enough from the city for those who want some peace and quiet but close enough to be downtown in just a short drive (and on the local bus lines for those with limited transportation -- but quite a walk up a very steep hill from the main road) with fantastic views of Pegasus Bay, this B&B served as a nice base to explore Christchurch and environs. There is only a single unit comprised of a bedroom, bathroom and living area. Breakfast is served upstairs in the main house with great views of the Bay out the window (or if the weather accommodates) from the outside deck. The space in the guest quarters allows for relaxation and the feeling you are not just in a bedroom. Bernie and Denise provide insight into local attractions and dining options (we already had reservations at one of their favorite restaurants). A nice choice if visiting the Christchurch area.

We stayed a total 3 nights with Denise and Bernie and they could not have been more welcoming, making us feel very relaxed and at home from the first moment. They were happy to spend time discussing our itinerary with advice on what to do and see (and what not to, thanks Bernie!) as well as giving us a real insight into how Christchurch has been affected by the recent earthquakes and, especially, how it is recovering with the amazing resilience of the local people. The accommodation is first class, very spacious, clean and well appointed; breakfast was more than enough and the views….well, that is just the icing on the cake. We would most definitely recommend this to anyone and if we are lucky enough to make another trip to NZ, Denise and Bernie will definitely be getting a call from us!
