My husband and I stayed at the Merivale Manor for 3 nights on the last stop of our 3 week tour around NZ. Good location, great size bedroom and bathroom, light breakfast included and free wifi. But the highlight for us was the fantastic service that we received from Wayne. From the moment we arrived, Wayne was so helpful and... More

We have just spent 5 nights in Merivale appartments and our every need has been met. Great location. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and we will definitely be back.

While in Christchurch we stayed here for a few nights. We had booked the room on the 2nd floor in the mansion. This is a very nice spacious room, the bathroom is a bit small. During our stay Wayne made great suggestions on what to see while in Christchurch. It is so sad to visit downtown and see the destruction... More

We traveled to the New Zealand on our honeymoon, and we stayed at Merivale Manor on both our first and last night on the South Island. Wayne and Karen were wonderful hosts -- they greeted us with toast and milk and their dog Raffles, and they gave us wonderful recommendations for what to do with our time in Christchurch (Godley...

Stayed in the manor on the second floor in a suite. Well appointed, quaint and friendly staff. They advised we go to the downtown area and see the botanical gardens, earthquake damage and the innovative ReStart Mall and spend a day in Akaroa. We had a blast.

This property is lovely although we were across the road in apartments, but these were beautifully appointed. Our disappointment was that when we booked this hotel it said a full breakfast, that we took to mean a cooked breakfast. When we checked in we were handed bread for toast and cereals and milk. When I queried it I was told... More

It all started when we found our itinerary to call Merivale Manor to let them know we would need a late check in as our flight was arriving at 1am. We were sitting in the departure lounge in Sydney, and at this point realised that the dates were wrong, and we were booked in for 4 days later. We called... More

When searching for accommodations for our 15 December 2014 stay we found Merivale Manor and were surprised to find that the price was the same as others we considered but the accommodations and appearance seemed better. We were very pleased with the rooms, grounds, cleanliness, location and breakfast. Wayne and Karen were very helpful and friendly. Wayne provided great restaurant... More

Sadly, we only stayed one night. The house is so beautiful. Karen and Wayne were really helpful and nice. They gave us a lot of information on the city's sights. Merivale is not the " happening " part of Christchurch. The rooms were really big and comfortable. The free wifi was good. And Raffles was a delight. The CDB is... More
