Merivale Lodge is a great place to stay. Accommodation is superb and hosts Warren and Gwnyeth are the very best. Nothing is too much for them. This was our third visit and each time they have excelled in accommodation and service. They absolutely know what their guests like. It's a 20 minute walk from the city but there is a... More

We were happy with our decision to stay on Papanui Road in Merivale, close to restaurants and shopping, and even happier that we booked into the Webb Suite at Merivale Manor. From the moment of our arrival, hosts Warren and Gwyneth were extremely warm and friendly, showed us around the magnificent historic (but recently refurbished) mansion, and ensured that we... More

Stayed one night based on some of the recent reviews. Could not have been more pleased with our selection! We were invited to join other guests for drinks at the manor house and just had a glorious time. The facilities are absolutely immaculate and completely updated with every need met with thoughtful planning put in to room design and equipment.... More

My husband, my 7 years old boy and I stayed in a main building of Merivale Manor Motel for one night. The motel is elegant. The room is spacious and clean. The neighborhood is very nice with lots of restaurants. The owners were very warm and welcoming. Too bad that we were there for only one night. Highly recommended.

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.
