Can not recommend a better place to stay in the world, fantastic hosts who took care of us from the the moment we arrived to the highest level until our departure. Our loft room was stunning, and the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, absolute heaven! Breakfast was just perfect, relaxed, great coffee, and amazing home... More

This is a super B and B in Christchurch, 10 mins from the centre. It's a superb Edwardian Villa with lots of period charm. Pam and Dennis were excellent hosts , on arrival tea and cakes were served. Baking by Dennis. We stayed in the Garden Room which was a tad small but cosy. The bed was very comfortable and... More

If you want to see the interior of a classic New Zealand wood-frame home, this B&B is for you. The owners, Pam and Denis, are friendly and helpful. They offer an excellent breakfast in their bright, charming, fascinatingly decorated day-room and adjoining kitchen, with a lovely view of a large and well tended garden. For dinner they recommended an Indian... More

We stayed with Pam and Denis for two nights before our flight back from Christchurch. They were very friendly and welcoming and happy to chat with us about our visit and plans, providing us with tea and Denis's homemade cakes whenever we needed them. We stayed in the Mulberry room which was clean and comfy and had a lovely en... More

We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon in New Zealand recently, and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Delicious tea and cakes on arrival, extremely comfortable bed after our long flight and superb cooked breakfast, we couldn't have asked for more. Pam and Dennis were the perfect hosts, they created a warm friendly and relaxed... More

Pam & Denis' home and garden is GORGEOUS! Tea, coffee & delicious homemade baking by Denis, were offered and served in the luxurious guest lounge as soon as we arrived. (Refreshments were also kindly extended to a visiting cousin, thank you so very much) Elegant furnishings & beautiful table settings in keeping with the period of this high ceiling house.... More

we only spent 1 night here instead of the 2 we expected because of a mix up with Booking.com. Pam was wonderful and helped us find another accommodation even though it was quite booked up in Christchurch. We had the attic room, small but comfortable with a nice private bathroom ( heated floors, etc) right next door. I was afraid... More

Our last stop was Christchurch, after traveling 3 weeks in a campervan. We've booked this B&B upfront, thinking we might want to rest in a comfy bed the night before flying home. Lilac Rose offered this, and much more. When we arrived, Pam & Dennis were at home ready to welcome us. After some coffee and lovely homemade muffins, they... More
