We spent the first night of our honeymoon here and what a perfect way to start. The hosts were happy to advise places to eat/visit, we chose the local Thai restaurant (amazing) We had a great nights sleep and a lovely breakfast in the morning. To sum up the Lilac Rose I would say great hospitality, beautiful place and perfect... More

We were in love just driving up and walking through the gate! The property is lovely, and the spring blooming bushes and trees just added to its charm. Pam greeted us with coffee and a muffin and gave us some pointers on what to do in Christchurch. We stayed in the Garden Room, and even though there is not a... More

I endorse previous reviews stating how delightful this property is and how welcoming and charming the hosts are. To this I would add the excellent location. In a premier suburb located walking distance to an upmarket shopping and dining precent. The city heart, such as is left, is maybe 5 minutes away as is the truly stunning Botanical Gardens and...

We had a delightful one night visit as we were passing through town. The hosts Pam and Dennis were gracious, the room was spacious and comfortable, we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, and breakfast was hearty. Well-recommended!

We stayed here for five nights in the Mulberry Room, with it's lovely comfortable bed, and fabulous bath. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed the following week for three nights in the Garden Room, again with lovely comfortable bed, and fabulous shower room. Pam and Denis could not have been more helpful or hospitable. Breakfasts were great. When... More

We stayed at Lilac Rose on 25th July in the Mulberry room with beautiful en suite facilities. Our room was lovely with all you needed and very comfortable indeed with extra blankets and bath robes. Our hosts Pam and Dennis were superb and Pam greeted us on arrival with lovely tea and cake. Dennis later joined us for a drink... More

Stayed June 14th thru 18th. Purpose built B and B. Only three rooms. Stayed in the garden room. Wonderful and charming. Bathroom was next to the room but only for the room occupants, was as large as the bedroom and marvelous. Close to Cristchurch, downtown, and the train station. Dennis makes four great breakfasts which I tried all of them.

Our stay at Lilac Rose was everything we could have wished for. Dennis and Pam are gracious and welcoming, and the Garden Room in which we stayed was beautifully clean and tastefully decorated. There was a selection of teas in the room, along with a kettle for hot water, which was a lovely touch, especially since we stayed here during... More

Four of us stayed here for one night at the beginning of March 2014. We were welcomed with tea/coffee and home-made cookies and were made to feel immediately at home in their wonderful house. Although Lilac Rose is on a busy road, the house itself is very quiet and our room was at the back. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated,... More
