Stayed here just for one night as we needed somewhere close to the airport (it's very close! We walked to the Jucy car rental office in the morning and it was a 20 minute walk - the airport is not much further). We stayed in the Magnolia Room, which was very large, comfortable, and clean. Mini fridge, kettle, TV, small... More

Everything was perfect from the moment we booked! Communication from the owner is excellent. When we arrived we felt immediately welcomed and knew this was the perfect place to be. Beautiful B&B. Delightful breakfast and helpful suggestions on touring. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

My partner and I stayed at night in Early October. We arrived at our accommodation at 2am in the morning after a late flight from Sydney. It was only a 5 minute drive from the airport which proved handy after a long day of flying. The property and manicured gardens are stunning. We stayed in the Balcony Room. It was... More

We recently spent one night at St James B&B after a late flight arrival. Margaret kindly left a key at the front door for us. I loved the bed, it was the most comfortable Ive ever slept in, breakfast was wonderful with plenty of variety and eggs cooked to our liking. Margarets home is warm and welcoming as is she,... More

We stayed only one night unfortunately would love to have stayed longer. Margaret was just the most lovely person even dropping us to collect our motorhome the next day. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in away from home. We had a fantastic breakfast with endless selections available and our great host to give some helpful tips... More

We stayed here two nights, when we first arrived into Christchurch before picking up our camper van and on our return before we flew back home. We could not wait to return! We stayed with our 4 year old and we had the loft suite.......it was just what we needed and more. Comfortable beds for all three of us, crisp... More

After dropping off our campervans we came over to the B&B to drop off our luggage and were able to get into our rooms. Rooms were excellent and very comfortable. We got great recommendations for dinner in the mall about 2 kilometers away and enjoyed dinner in the Tavern. We had an early flight but were able to have a... More

A beautiful residence with a fabulous host. Margaret was very accommodating with our after midnight arrival. The room and facilities are very comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast is at your selected time so we could sleep in, cooked by Margaret who was great company to chat with and get great tips of hidden NZ gems to visit. We will definitely... More

We stayed here twice, on our arrival into Christchurch and on our final night two weeks later. We were actually looking forward to going back to stay as it is a lovely place and Margaret did everything she could to make our stay more enjoyable. Very close to the airport it makes a very easy first or last night stop... More
