4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We took one of the 3 bedroom apartments for 4 nights in September. We were two couples and we had told them in advance that we would have a big SUV - they reserved the first apartment which had additional parking on the side which was perfect for us. The owners are non-interfering and pleasant. I only met them once... More

we arrived late into christchurch but had absolutely no hassles, as promised the codes and key were all waiting for us. We stayed in the new apartments across the road. Myself and the party of 3 were very impressed with the property. Comfortable beds, nice pillows and the bonus of bread cereal spreads and milk, a lifesaver when we got... More

I travel alot and Merivale Manor has to be the BEST motel I've stayed at for a very long time. It's extremely clean. The rooms are well appointed. Comfy beds. We couldn't have asked for more friendly or accommodating hosts. In fact, my work mate did some washing and hung it out. While we were out it rained so a... More

Arriving well into the night was no problem for Karen and Wayne who' d left our arrangements for getting into our rooms easily organised. The rooms were well fitted out, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners made our stay in Christchurch even more special by sharing their knowledge of the area including places to eat. Breakfast was not included... More

We stayed in the Merivale Apartments opposite the actual motel because of renovations being done to the room we had booked. Well this was even better than we expected. The unit was spotlessly clean, well appointed with great cooking facilities, roomy and had nicely furnished bedrooms and lounge room. It was very conveniently situated to the Merivale Shopping Centre, for... More

Very friendly owner, she was very interested and helpfull. We also got fresh bread for breakfast and milk, the studio had tea and coffee, jams, butter and several... More

Nice motel, rooms are modern, clean and with kitchenette and spa. Free serials or toast for breakfast. Electrical heating carpets in bed is a luxery when Christchurch area have 4 seasons in one day. 5 minutes walk to supermarked in a small mall. Probably Traffic noise in the rooms close to the road. Nice hosts.

This motel room was lovely and the owners friendly & helpful. Good location. We were a bit confused as we assumed when booking it we would be staying in the big manor house, not motel rooms, but nevertheless it was a perfect bit stop before getting the Tranzalpine train first thing in the morning - which the owners organised our...

We stayed 2 nights in an apartment at the back, although it was small it was comfortable and very clean. The manor has been renovated very tastefully, it is close to shops and restaurants all within a 5 minute walk. The owners Karen and Wayne were very welcoming and and run their business extremely well. I would have no hesitation... More

This pleasant and relaxed location is near central Christchurch areas of interest including restaurants. Clean and comfortable although the somewhat small motel like extensions are near a busy street.
