This was my second stay at lilac rose. Such a lovely place. We had three rooms all of which were charming, spotless and comfortable. The hosts went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel welcome without being intrusive. This place is a real gem! I would happily go back again.

Parking is only in the public street. The owner welcomed us and brought us to the attic room. Positive: free wifi, nice look and feel, comfy bed. Can be improved: bathroom is across the hall, the owner assured us that the room next to the bathroom was only used for administration so a lot of privacy. But the full evening... More

My husband and I stayed a night in the attic room and it was lovely. Dennis, our host, was informative about the local area and really laid back which made the stay very relaxing. The house and room are beautiful, as is the second living room which we had to ourselves for the evening. A great end to our New... More

We only stayed for one night but could not have been made more welcome. The building itself is beautiful and surrounded by a well-tended garden. Our room was comfortable and far larger and better appointed than we expected. Pam, our host, was very welcoming and was there to cook a delicious breakfast in the morning. She was even kind enough... More

We stayed at the Lilac Rose as a family (all adults) so we booked all the rooms and really had the beautiful house to ourselves. It felt as though we had dropped in to stay with friends for the night as Pam and Dennis were absolutely wonderful company! The rooms were cosy and very comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

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
