The hosts are welcoming and the b and b has lovely large gardens. However, we couldnt get wifi in our room - if we stood at the very corner of the bath we could only. this was not satisfactory as we had an issue that came up at home and were trying to sort out. Free wifi is advertised, but... More

Lack of Communication WiFi: Free WiFi is available at all times in all rooms. We would have been very happy to assist you if we had known that you were having a problem. The room can accommodate three guests when they are wishing to save the cost of an extra room. An inner-sprung mattress or a folding out bed is... More

I had a very comfortable night the room was great and the hosts were very friendly and helpful and as I loved it so much I decided to stay another night. But... More

found a great deal online for the place, hospitality from the hosts was top notch and I'm personally nominating the B&B as having the most comfortable beds found so far on the South Island! nice quiet location, only 20 minutes from downtown and have a beautiful property

My husband and I were booked to stay at the Garden View for an evening this Easter. Our flight was cancelled due to bad weather so we had to cancel our booking very late in the day, with a break in the weather we were fortunate to get a flight the next day, our hosts were very accommodating, friendly and...

I booked a room at Garden View based on photos of the rooms and the garden and I certainly was not disappointed. My room is big, with a huge, comfortable bed. A large, clean bathroom with an excellent shower right next to it. There's also a huge window with said garden view. The garden is so lush and spectacular I... More

John and Beth were the sweetest people. You felt like being home from the very first second. They are very interested,caring and also talented people! Beth play wonderful songs on the piano before you go to bed for example. There's nothing you have to worry about. They even made sure we would get up early enough to catch our early... More

Our December 2013 stay at the Garden View B&B in Rolleston, south of Christchurch airport, was a wonderful way to begin our NZ tour. Our hosts, John and Beth, gave us a warm welcome and a personal touch, answering our questions and giving us pointers on what to expect on our travels. When we arrived, Beth had prepared a tasty...

John and Beth were great hosts and their house and garden are beautiful. Our conversations were so interesting, we couldn't quit talking, so we were late to bed and got off late, but it was well worth it. For Americans, if you ask enough questions, you will find out that they are the parents of Phil Keoghan, the host of... More

We had a lovely stay here. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the room was in perfect condition, fresh roses in the room and a beautiful bathroom. There is a big garden around the house and you wouldn´t guess that you are in the middle of a built up area. The only minus is that you really have... More
