“Great B and B”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Stayed January 2012. Two couples on two occasions.
Lovely house and very friendly, efficient staff. Rooms well presented and spacious with good facilities. Spotlessly clean and nice personal touches in public areas. Breakfasts exceptional with home made extras (muffins to die for). Great location on edge of `red zone` and within 5 minutes walk of two good restaurants.Five minutes walk to museum and park. Had to leave at 6am to catch transcoastal train and continental breakfast was ready for us before we left. Convenient for airport transfers.
Highly recommended

We felt so welcome here, right from our arrival. Easy to find from the airport (20 mins) and private parking to boot! The house itself is lovely. Plenty of old world charm set against contemporary art on the walls. Our room was huge and comfortable, the breakfast was lovely and the location was central. Only tiny niggle was that the bathrooms need updating but the whole place is scrupulously clean and very welcoming. Christchurch itself has to be seen, we have all rather forgotten the hardship and damage the earthquakes have caused and to see it is certainly sobering. On a positive note, the inventiveness and tenacity of the locals to soldier on is hugely impressive and inspirational! After a looooong flight, Orari was a welcome sanctuary. Thank you!

Room Tip: From what we saw, all rooms are large and comfortable. Bathrooms are a bit old fashioned but scrupul...

We stayed here for a night prior to our flight home after 3 weeks in a camper! The building is beautiful and staff encourage you to treat it as your home. Breakfast is served in the dining room which is stunning and a top quality breakfast is offered. Orari is in an excellent location-a couple of minutes walk from the I site and museum and perfectly located to make the most of your stay in Christchurch. We loved it!

We stayed for over a week in January and the rooms were lovely - tasteful and clean, and the service was excellent. The breakfasts were gorgeous - I hardly ever get up for hotel breakfasts but made a point of getting up for as many as possible at Orari and made my jet lagged guests get up too. They got in rice milk especially for me ...

It was great having wine in the evening and the lounge and garden felt relaxed and friendly - I had a few visitors to the Orari and all commented on how gorgeous it was. Jan is a great host and goes out of her way to make you comfortable. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 9 is huge - a great suite, and room 3 has a lovely garden outlook.
