I had a wonderful stay with Pam at Fendalton House. She made me feel very welcome and the room was warm, comfortable and full of thoughtful touches to make the stay something special. The breakfasts were delicious and made with produce from her own garden. Thanks for a lovely break!

Staying with Pam is like being welcomed home by your favourite aunt! She is very welcoming but not at all intrusive. Our room was lovely, spacious and well appointed. The chance to have a tipple of port or sherry in the evening was a nice touch. The en suite facilities are excellent. Pam's garden is delightful - colourful and cottage... More

Decided to ditch the hotels and look for a more interesting place to stay for a 1 week business trip to Christchurch. Had a wonderful time, Pam was a great hostess and provided the most amazing breakfasts each morning. Pam would ask what I would like for breakfast the evening before and each breakfast was great. . The house is... More

First place we stop when we land in NZ, The Second time we've stopped here, Pam's a great host, very helpful, always does a great breakfast, to start us off on our travels. Very quiet, only a short walk to shops, bars, and restaurants. Great food in the Fox & Ferret Bar!

I doubt you will find a more friendly, generous host anywhere else in NZ. We arrived from the Trans Alpine Express and were immediately invited to share a bottle of wine in Pam's delightful garden whilst we planned where to eat. As we were catching the 7am Coastal train the next morning we were expecting a basic continental breakfast but... More

It was my first time in Christchurch on a work trip, I was very well looked after over the 6 nights that I was here. Pam was a very hospitable host and I even met her family on day one. The room was daily cleaned and the large bed was very comfortable. Every morning, I looked forward to a large... More

Pam was very attentive from the start, she rang us to find out when we were arriving, and was very flexible as we were later than expected. She greeted us with chocolate brownies and a cup of tea, and showed us to our lovely room. The room had a comfy large bed and a clean and spacious ensuite. She recommended... More

Arriving in New Zealand, our first two nights were spent with Pam. Pam made us really welcome into her home. Pam had emailed us to say there was on going work to her house, after the earthquake damage, and would not be offended if we changed our minds. It was fine! Great breakfast one of the best we had in... More

When we booked our stay at Fendalton House, Pam let us know that she was having work done to repair earthquake damage, and would not be offended if we changed our minds about staying there.

We stayed in Fendalton House for three days at the beginning of our tour of the South Island, and on our last night, and it was the perfect start and end to our trip. It is in a quiet, leafy street, very convenient for the airport and Christchurch city centre, and ten minutes’ walk from shops and restaurants. The house... More
