4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed seven nights here while visiting with family in Christchurch. It was delightful and I enjoyed my small upstairs studio however I would not recommend this particular room for a couple. It was small and pokey and poorly lit. I needed a light on even in the middle of the day. There was no bedside table and the double... More

We just spent 2 nights here and absolutely LOVED it. It was so sad to leave! Wayne and Karen are fabulous hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were very comfortable. We stayed in a beautiful room in the main house which has been renovated to maintain the "old world charm" whilst having all the mod... More

We were travelling around the South Island with 2 other families in January 2014 and stayed here for a few days. We all loved the place in every aspect. Architecture, comfort, close to most sites, and above all the friendliest hosts you can find on the planet. The husband and wife team who run the Manor are simply delightful, have... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night before leaving New Zealand. After reading the reviews, we opted to stay in the Manor itself, which I think was a great decision. The house had an old-fashioned feel to it, and our room was very comfortable. They even give you food for breakfast for your kitchenette! My only regret is... More

We started our recent trip to New Zealand in Christchurch and stayed for 3 nights at the Merivale Manor, having a lovely double room in the main house. It was very comfortable, well furnished and a good start to our travels. Our arrival late at night went as smooth as clockwork. The balcony adjacent to our room was handy for... More

We stayed two nights here in a one bedroom apartment on the top floor of the main building. The apartment was lovely with nice furniture and fixtures, yet maintaining its old charm from a bygone era. We enjoyed walking from here to the merivale shops for dinner and we also walked into the cbd. The hosts were very friendly and... More

The Merivale Manor is a charming hotel in the Merivale area, north of the city center. We had the ground level room in the back of the manor (#211) and found it to be very comfortable and nicely furnished. It consisted of a main sitting room with a kitchenette, a bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom is a little cramped... More

This motel is located in Merivale just north of the city centre. There is a bus stop right outside or it is about a 35 min walk into the city. 5 min walk north and there is the centre of Merivale, with a good choice of restaurants and shops and a supermarket. Received a warm welcome from Wayne on check... More
