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

Lovely house. Comfortable rooms and welcoming, genuine hosts.Dennis gave us tea and a chat on arrival and told us where to find a good evening meal. Really couldn't ask for more but we got it in a wonderful breakfast. We just felt like we were friends who'd been invited to stay. What's better than that?

Pam and Denis were absolutely wonderful hosts and have the most beautiful home. The house is stunning and despite being on a busy road it is incredibly quiet. We stayed in the Attic Room and slept very peacefully. The shower was especially fantastic and I could have stayed in there all day! Breakfast was a fantastic feast, with both a... More

We stayed with Pam & Dennis in their beautiful home for 1 night before collecting our camper. We loved the double attic room which had a very comfy bed and a lovely clean bathroom (not en suite but for our sole use). Dennis cooked a mean breakfast and their beautiful Golden Retriever added a relaxed charm - I could have... More

Our first stay on our tour through NZ and what a welcome from Pam & Denis. They have got this B&B just right with lovely rooms and a relaxing atmosphere. Breakfasts (cooked by Denis) were great and the whole experience was just what we needed after long flights. Nothing bad to say!

Pam and Denis are the most amazing hosts and a great example of why Kiwis are known for being so friendly. Normally I shy away from B & B's as I prefer the anonymity of a hotel, however from the moment you walk in the front door of this lovely gracious beautifully restored home and are offered tea, coffee or...
