The Orari is a heritage building in central Christchurch. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. There is free parking. The centre of the city is only a 5 minute walk. There are lots of good restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast was great. The bacon eggs a delight. The staff were all very helpful from suggesting places to visit... More

I even received a map from Ashley which highlighted all the diners recommended and landmarks by written!! The room is neat and nice, slept very well. The breakfast is awesome,... More

I dislike posting negative reviews on TripAdvisor, and I would like to say up front that the Orari was clean, the room was spacious, and the breakfasts were good. The location, too, is central. We went out for a walk and after 10 minutes found ourselves right in the city. My main issue is with the room... in a word,... More

Hello Kateena. I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review and therefore allowing the opportunity to address your concerns. Firstly, we booked room 1 for you from the choice of 3 asked for by your agent. It is a sought after room for its size, location and rate. Unfortunately at the time of your... More

Stayed here for one night. Whilst the location is good & the house was clean & well appointed, I wasn't over enamoured. The owners & staff don't appear to live on site,so are only available between 2-6pm. We had to leave early to catch the Transalpine train, so were advised that breakfast would be left out. As I am both... More

Great place to stay after having spent 3 memorable weeks touring South Island in a campervan. Centrally situated, very comfortable a real oasis. Owners have spent a considerable amount of money refurbishing after the earthquakes. Would definitely recommend and stay again if we visit NZ again.

My husband and I visited Christchurch during our honeymoon in July 2013 and we stayed at Orari for two nights. The B+B itself is absolutely beautiful and even the small-ish room we had selected was well appointed and perfect for our needs. We were impressed with the number of breakfast options we were offered, and everything we ordered was delicious.... More

Only had time for a one night stay however wish it were longer. Beautiful grounds and building, nicely decorated and very welcoming. Staff were accomodating and friendly and took the time to share traveling stories with us. Gluten free friendly meals available which wasn't a hassle, couldn't fit in all the food offered at breakfast. My only suggestion would be... More

Great location close to the centre of what remains of Christchurch but car parking is in a very small and very tight car park. Our twin Queen (Room 10) has a sloping roof so you have to mind your head. One of the windows did not shut properly making the room noisy from the traffic. This was reported on leaving.... More

I'm not a city person but if I were staying in CC again and wanted to visit the city highlights like Riccarton Bush, Hagley Park, Canterbury Museum, shopping.. then I would treat myself and stay here. The staff were quite friendly, the rooms (ensuite) simply amazing with lots of space and looking out into the garden. Breakfast consisted of lots... More
