We booked the garden room for the first two nights of our 3 week holiday to the South Island of New Zealand and requested the use of two bikes over our stay. The whole house is beautiful and as we left two golden retrievers at home it was a joy to see their lovely dog. We used the bikes to... More

We were sold on this B & B as soon as we saw the pictures. We were not disappointed upon arrival as the grounds and house lived up to our high expectations. We traveled with another couple and booked the Mulberry and Attic room. Both couples were very satisfied with our rooms and had a wonderful night's sleep in the... More

This was our first night in New Zealand and it was such a find to be staying at the lilac rose which looks exactly as it does on the photographs. A beautifully decorated home with one of the highlights being sitting in the garden with Maddie the golden retriever, and just enjoying the surroundings. Comfy attic room, friendly hosts and...

We had a short visit but the owners were very helpful with suggestions for transport, dinner locations, calling cabs etc. It was a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere in a lovely old house with a beautiful garden.

Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one night, but the Lilac Rose was the perfect start to our New Zealand adventure! After over 24 hours of traveling, the attic room made for an amazing night of rest. The bathroom is down the hall (really, four steps away), but private and beautiful. Denis and Pam were awesome hosts - they... More

This b and b is a must! Stunning rooms atmosphere, warm and welcoming 😊. Easily one of the best places I have ever stayed 😍 the lovely family who run the lilac rose were kind and helpful. Very welcoming. The lilac rose is a gem! Will definitely be going back if I go back to new Zealand.

Lilac Rose B&B was beautiful - the house is well appointed and our room was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was awesome - Dennis' home made tomato sauce was a stand out. Wifi signal strong (something we haven't experienced at all places!) Would definitely stay again.

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
