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

we found it difficult to find as signposting wasn't good but had a wonderful greeting when we did arrive despite others arriving at same time making it difficult for the host. The building is lovely but we weren't there long enough to make the most of it sadly. The host was very helpful and made recommendations for eating and then... More

Orari was chosen for us by the travel company but turned out to be a great choice. Located near the centre of Christchurch and close to a large number of dining choices. Orari is an older styled building with comfortable self contained rooms, a large old fashioned guest lounge and adjacent dining area that served a delicious cooked breakfast plus... More

Everything about the Orari is great--the rooms were huge, comfortable and nice. The art in the hallways is a nice addition. The breakfasts are delicious, and the staff will leave food out for you if you need to leave early (like to catch the TranzAlpine train). The staff also was wonderfully helpful with a shuttle to the train station and... More

My wife and I toured the South Island in February and had the good fortune to stay at Orari three times. Firstly at the beginning of our holiday before we started our tour, then two weeks later arriving back to Christchurch on the Tranzalpine and lastly the night before we flew home after a journey on the Coastal Pacific from...

The house is an old wood frame building very central, close to the museum and botanical gardens. The rooms are pleasant and spacious and the communal lounge very comfortable. Guests are encouraged to meet for a glass of wine and a chat before heading out for dinner. There is parking available, albeit in rather a tight space. It provides a... More

Really well positioned boutique B&B, walking distance (10 mins) into Christchurch centre and Hagley Park, with nice rooms and lovely guest lounge. Good breakfast with cooked option, but needs to start earlier than 08:00.

Very comfortable room, bed and ensuite made this an excellent stay for a couple of days. We were made very welcome - the complementary wine for all guests in the early evenings is a great idea too. Breakfasts were of a high standard eaten in a large communal room. Very good location in central Christchurch.
