    Excellent motel near the centre of Christchurch. Excellent bathroom comfortable beds and quiet when we stayed in August. Generous hosts who provided bread, milk and good hospitality. However, there was a confusion with our booking and we had to stay in the manor house for the first night. This room and particularly the bathroom was very small and with all... More

    We stsyed for one nigh after a long drive ready to catch a flight the next mornimg. Our first floor, large bedroom with kitchenette was beautiful with high ceiling and elegant furnishings. The hall, stairs and landing were similarly decorated in the style of the original (well renovated) building and it felt like a four star hotel. Most of the... More

    We only stayed one night and not knowing Christchurch at all, were very pleased with the location and proximity of restaurants. The accommodation itself is faultless - we stayed in the beautiful main house, with a stunning, corner room at the back. Like others we would have happily stayed longer, but was a perfect stopover on arrival in NZ before... More

    We booked on the recommendation of friends. Booking while traveling was effortless and the welcome on arrival was as you would wish for. Friendly, professional and hassle free. The rooms are spotless and location perfect. Wayne, Karen (& Raffles) will make you feel relaxed and at home. We highly recommend a visit.

    Our only regret was that we could only stay one night, great hosts who helped us plan things to do in Christchurch and as this was our wedding trip they even upgraded us which was really kind. Couldn't fault the place, immaculate rooms, great location and like most places we stayed in NZ really kind hosts, would definitely stay again... More

    My husband and I stayed one night at Merivale Manor Motel, definitely recommend it. The main building is beautiful and sophisticated, we love it very much! One thing need to consider is the mattress, the one we had was quite shacky, it swayed whenever we turn or move the body.

    Merivale is 5 mins from the city and has great cafes and restaurants as well as a large supermarket. We needed two bedroom accommodation and the town houses across from the hotel were perfect. 2 bedrooms, two bathrooms and a lounge and kitchen. Modern decor, comfortable beds. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming.

    My husband and i stayed here one night on a business trip to Christchurch. We were booked into the Peacock Suite which is in the main manor house. On arrival you are greeted with perfectly manicured gardens and hedges and lawns. Very friendly and warm smiles from the owners Karen and Wayne.The interior design has a fantastic mix of history...

    I am envious of those who stayed more than one night here. My husband and I were traveling with friends and were given the 2 bedroom suite in 'the manor house'. It is a beautiful set of rooms with high ceilings and tasteful decor, fresh flowers, comfortable beds, and lovely en suite bath. We also appreciated the easy to use... More
