Whilst this establishment is comfortable it is not really a bed and breakfast more of a small hotel. It is impersonal run by staff. The room we had was a good size had all we needed. You need to carry your own bags and the car parking is restricted. The breakfast is adequate.

This was our third trip in New Zealand. This time, we stayed at Orari 4 nights out of total 9 nights. We could recommend my friends, therefore, that if they plan to visit Christchurch, stay at Orari: because of warm hospitality, good location, delicious breakfast, etc. Take advantage to stay at a best location: only one block to Botanic Garden,...

This lovely old house has been beautifully restored. My only regret is that we did not have more time there. The hostess was charming and so very helpful. We were tired after a long day on the train, and were faced with a very early departure for another train. Julie pointed us to a good restaurant only a block away,... More

This is a stately home with lovely rooms with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I would have given it five stars but we did have to cross the hall for the bathroom. We had a beautiful room and did not mind crossing the hall to use the bathroom. The room and bathroom were very nice. Wine is offered at 6:30... More

We stayed at this delightful B&B for a night and couldn't have better received and looked after. As a listed building it has retained it's character. The room we had (9) was spacious,clean and had quirky additions that added to the charm. The glass of wine at 5 30pm was welcome.The breakfast suited all tastes. It is an easy walk... More

A lovely (large) old house within 10 minutes walk from what is left of the centre of Christchurch, but only a couple of minutes from the (excellent) museum), and wonderful botanical gardens with some magnificent specimen trees. Lovely room, good breakfast, friendly and welcoming owner. Highlight was the "happy hour" eac evening where wine was provided (free, or course), and... More

We stayed in Orari B&B twice for one night each as we were using Christchurch as a launch point for the southern region of the South Island. Both times the B&B was full, but Jan did a superb job of keeping the flow smooth and providing excellent facilities, service, and food. Our room was nicely furnished, the bed was comfortable,...

Orari is a really good B & B in a nice central position. We had a lovely sized room with a seating area where you can make use of the tea and coffee making facilities. There was a fantastic choice for breakfast where you can help yourself to fruits, yoghurts, muffins, croissants and then any hot food you choose is... More

We stayed one night in the Orari while travelling round NZ with friends. Jan is extremely efficient, she had booked our evening meal and checked our transport to the station for the following morning before we even saw the rooms. Our room was comfortable and large with a nice windowsill, however it was a bit dated with a rather small... More

Can't speak highly enough of the Orari. Comfortable accomodation, super breakfast and complimentary wine in the lounge in the evening to meet other guests. Nothing too much trouble for Jan, whether booking an evening meal, arranging transport to the airport or sorting out our faulty hire car. Marj
