Merivale Manor is an attractive old building that has been beautifully restored. There is the main house where we stayed and other units off to the side as you approach the house. We arrived early after a protracted flight and much exhaustion. The host very kindly was quick to check and see if our room was ready so early.... it... More

Merivale Manor is a gracious old mansion that has been beautifully restored to the highest level. This establishment is gorgeous and the epitome of good taste. The beds were so comfortable, the furnishings elegant and the bathroom & kitchen areas beautifully finished. The atmosphere is warm and restful. There is ample off street parking and the grounds are very well... More

My husband and I stayed here upon our arrival to and departure from Christchurch, and I can't recommend this spot enough. First off, it's very easy to find, even if it's super late at night and you're driving on the wrong side of the road/car. I liked the location of this place because it provided a nice walk into downtown... More

The room was just what we needed for a comfortable nights sleep after over 24 hours of flying from the UK. The owners were very friendly and showed us our room. We had one of the motel type rooms with parking. WiFi worked well with a good speed. Bed was lovely and the shower was amazing after a long haul... More

This place is a Bijou. The owner treat the guests like good friends, are very helpful for finding the right spot you are searching. The rooms cosy and well equipped. We felt sorry, for not booking there for more than one night!

I have stayed twice, and absolutely love it. Very tidy. Heaps of free WiFi. Polite owners. Great location. Lots of nice restaurants in easy walking distance. Next time I may try a stay in the Manor house itself! I would suggest the Motel participate in a meal charge back scheme, merely for convenience.

There for a mere 2 nights, it was on the top of the list of hotel experiences. Wayne was an incredible host, providing me with bike and map for a day tour of Christchurch, but went above and beyond by providing me with a winter jacket and gloves, as I was somewhat unprepared. The main manor rooms are gorgeous, recently... More

Marivale Manor has charm of British times. The property has old charm and at the same time has all the modern facilities. The hosts were really welcoming and helped us with the local sightseeing. Location is quite close to the botanical garden and other important landmarks.

You've found the perfect place to stay in Christchurch! A unique experience, that didn't fail to meet our expectations. Location was absolutely perfect, easy walk to shops, restaurants cafes and a comfortable walk to Hagley Park. For the energetic, top class bikes available - with a mapped out easy bike route for sightseeing. For the ultimate experience book, a room... More

We stayed for a single night and found the room to be cozy and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was good with plenty of hot water. The rate included a continental breakfast consisting of cereal and toast. Free parking and friendly receptionist helped make our stay even better. Highly recommended.
