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.

We arrived here after spending a month in a motorhome to a warm welcome. The house is a large old place which we had seen on the website but that didn't do it justice! Our room was fantastic, we had a comfortable king size bed, a three piece suite and a fabulous bathroom with a bath tub as well as... More

Stayed for two nights. Very large room with en suite, free Wi Fi with good speed and bandwidth. This is a large B&B probably 10 rooms plus. No fridge in the room. Breakfast was nice eaten in very large communal room. Atmosphere is more 'business like' rather than 'family' - but very pleasant. Good position for seeing what is left... More

This is a lovely house with comfortable rooms and a lovely breakfast served in an elegant dining room. We enjoyed the location which allowed us to walk to the Botanic Garden and to the town center for shopping. Many restaurants are also within walking distance. The hosts are gracious and helpful--they offered us their own map with a highlighted route... More
