Our shuttle had problems finding the address as the number was obscured but we made it, and it was such an enjoyable stay. Were invited for a wine, but as being a non alcoholic drinker, a juice would have been nice and perhaps a cracker. Very quiet and the lounge was enormous, all had our own couches and well heated

Great B&B located close to cafes, restaurants and the botanical gardens. We stayed in Room 9 and it was spacious and luxurious. Breakfast was included, and there was free off-street parking. We would stay there again, and will recommend to anyone travelling to Christchurch.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this B and B. Heart of the city. Spacious living area to hang out in. Nice touch with the wine in the evening provided by the innkeepers. Very full breakfast, both cooked and continental options. Our bathroom was not in our room but that did not bother us - robes provided for the jaunt across... More

After traveling on four planes and for 36 hours from Florida, Orari B&B was the perfect place for us. Julie checked us in early because the room was ready (due to a no show the night before). This was so very much appreciated. Wine at 5:30, wonderful breakfast, dinner recommendations and bookings, shuttle reservations....all taken care of immediately and without... More

The room was nice and cosy. Our group has 3 adults one 5 yrs old child and one 2 yrs old child and was booked in room 9 but the owner would not let us stay in the same room so we had to pay for another room with no discount. :( Other hotels if we book this type of... More

The downtown location puts it in walking distance of the botanical garden, the museum, restaurants and shops. It has a lovely garden with a seating area and the roses frame the house with lots of color. The rooms are well decorated, comfortable and clean with a luxurious bed (at least in room 6 and room 9). Parking is available for... More

You could not ask for a better Christchurch location than the Orari B&B. In just a few minutes you can walk the the cathedral ruins, the Canterbury Museum, the fabulous Botanical Garden, the Restart Shopping, etc. Good restaurants are also within an easy walk. The B&B itself survived the big earthquakes. It is very comfortable, but you probably want a... More

This is a wonderful house with very well appointed rooms, a cozy common area & a great breakfast. The staff are as cheerful & helpful as you could ever hope for. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Christchurch.

I stayed here with my husband and another couple in April 2015. We found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable and the beds nice and firm. The location is an easy walk to town. Breakfast was lovely, not fussy just good. The staff were very helpful advising on local restaurants and attractions so we got to see a... More

A small guesthouse which is charmingly furnished. Very restful and peaceful. Good central location with most central locations within easy walking distance. Close to Airport Shuttle bus service. Breakfast is delicious with a wide range of choice: not what you might expect from somewhere so small
