We stayed at Merivale Manor for 3 nights and the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to leave. It was nice to have a very light continental breakfast, it was all we needed. Everything was very clean and the double shower was magnificent.Will stay again.

Last stop for our 9 days road trip. Room is very cozy and comfortable. The land lord is very friendly and helpful, thank you Wayn. Located in quite and safe area so you can walk to the pub or restaurant nearby. Highly recommend.

My husband and I have only recently returned home following a wonderful trip to Australia and NZ... On route to Wellington in the north island we chose Christchurch and couldn't have picked a more delightful place to stay. We only met the owner's Wayne and Karen and their lovely pooch briefly as they were going away on holiday the day... More

From the moment we checked in we knew this place was special. Wayne and Karen made us feel very welcome and took the time to explain how things work. They gave us some fresh milk, and bread out of the freezer for toast the following morning. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the location is an easy walk to... More

The hosts Wayne and Karen are special people. The manor house is gorgeous. The rooms are all beautifully decorated. The motel location is central and near to all the action. Everything is spotless. Service is impeccable. What else could you want in a motel?

Arrived here after a long delayed flight. We had booked a spa room. Host was lovely and chatty upon check in, pointing us in the right direction as we needed to eat. He gave us our 'light continental breakfast' which was light indeed. He took pre packed frozen bread out of a freezer in reception, a small bottle of milk,... More

We have stayed at the Manor House four times in the past four months and each time for two to four days. It is our first choice when staying in Christchurch. Each room is different, well decorated and a spacious feeling of home. Located on a main road (but no road noise to speak of) it has an excellent cafe... More

I spent several weeks staying in several different units, all of which were excellent and of a high standard. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and also the temporary Managers as well. Merivale Manor is situated in a great location, for me personally it was close to work. Also walking distance to the Merivale Mall, bus stop outside the door... More

Christchurch is our home town so we visit as often as possible and at least once a year. We always stay at Merivale Manor, our home away from home. It's location is the perfect base for daily visits out to friends and family all over the city. Merivale Mall is walking distance for almost everything you need, from food supplies,... More
