We stayed at this place for the first night in NZ. It's location is close to the Christchurch Airport which is good for us to have a rest after long hours flight. The house is stunning and the host Jan was pretty kind and friendly.

Alan and Jan are wonderful hosts and they went "way out of their way" to make us feel right at home. Alan picked us up at the airport, where we had spent an entire day, due to our flight change that we weren't aware of. They made reservations at a wonderful restaurant for us and transported us. The next morning... More

Hi Liz, it was fun for Jan and I to both meet you, and also share our home with you. Belmont was built as a lovely and comfortable home and its great to be able to share it with nice people. 100 years on, she is blossoming again after the earthquake repairs have been completed.

We only stayed for one night after we had arrived in NZ. The location was ideal for us because it is close to the airport. It might not be ideal if one wants to visit the city centre. Service was great - very friendly and very patient with us :)
