My husband and I spent three nights at this boutique B&B during our tour of New Zealand. We booked direct with the owners, Pam and Dennis and couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay. We chose The Garden Room: it was perfect with its own outside verandah looking out onto the garden. It doesn't have an ensuite bathroom,... More

y wife and I just returned from a trip of our lifetime in New Zealand - 7 days in Fiordland, followed by hiking around Mount Cook and a couple days in Christchurch, where we stayed at the Lilac Rose B&B. The gracious hospitality from Pam and Dennis Stevenson proved to us that their B&B is a labor of love, not... More

Thank you to Pam & Denis for the wonderful hospitality they have shown. We have stayed at the Lilac Rose Boutique B & B in April, 2012 & February, 2014. We stayed in the Mulberry room and it so cozy and just love the decor. We were greeted by Abbey, their gorgeous golden retriever at the door, and Tea, Coffee... More

The landscaping was beautiful, the family was wonderful, the bed was comfortable and the location was okay. As others have mentioned the flowers are quite beautiful and really brighten anyone's day as you walk up to the house. Once inside, it's more of an antique older house, but is quickly overlooked by the incredibly kind family. We didn't stay here... More

We went to New-Zealand for 12 days for my wife's birthday, first night I thought we could try a Bed and Breakfast ( first time ever, a change from the resorts and higher end hôtels ). Rested my choice on this one based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, the style of the house and the fact they had a... More

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
