We stayed here at the spa studio. Room was just ok. Not much spacious. Though their kitchen was very much useful. One advice... if possible don't go for studios here as its very close to the road and you might not get sound sleep.

We recently stayed a night in an upstairs front room of the Manor. The room was beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and we were impressed with the facilities, including beautiful bed linen, towels and a complimentary breakfast supplied. There was a heat pump in the room and a bathroom heater. The shower had excellent pressure with nice toiletries supplied. The hosts... More

This post is belated, but I wanted to write about how excellent our stay was at Merivale Manor in December 2013. We were two couples on a two-week road trip around New Zealand and stayed at various accommodations, and Merivale Manor ranked among the most impressionable. Wayne and Karen were fantastic hosts; while we only stayed there for one night... More

Everything was clean and good. Bed reasonably comfortable and supplied light breakfast set us on our way. Motel is a good location, close to Merivale village with restaurants and supermarket and a reasonable walk into earthquake-shattered centre. Owners very helpful and friendly. However the spa suite we had was right next to road and traffic noise was very annoying, -... More

I stayed seven nights here while visiting with family in Christchurch. It was delightful and I enjoyed my small upstairs studio however I would not recommend this particular room for a couple. It was small and pokey and poorly lit. I needed a light on even in the middle of the day. There was no bedside table and the double... More
