Great service, very friendly and helpful staff. We made a mistake and booked two rooms and found it is much easier to deal with them directly an we sorted it out easily with no fuss. Great rooms, even for stock standard. We loved the spa bath after a week spent around the South Island in a campervan but would be... More

We stayed in a small queen room upstairs in the Manor. Whilst the room was small for two people, it was beautifully and tastefully designed with quality furnishings. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. The Manor is located close to shops, places to eat and other activities and Wayne was a great host too. We would recommend... More

We were welcomed by Karen, Wayne and Raffles. They are so lovely and very helpful. Wayne recommended some hidden gems in the city centre, it made our trip. The room was immaculate, spa bath, all the accessories required to cook, but close enough to restaurants that you don't need to. We were in a room close to the street, noise... More

Beautifully and tastefully decorated. Very large rooms, comfortable cozy beds, even a complementary breakfast. Great location being able to walk into Merrivale Village. We had... More

Very large room with comfortable bed, with lovely bathroom amenities. Karen and Wayne were very friendly, and helpful. We unfortunately forgot our phone chargers, Wayne very kindly found two and lent us overnight! The... More

Karen and Wayne, are the definition of impeccable hosts. We stayed in the wonderfully decorated Manor, which has huge rooms, comfortable beds, excellent linens and a great living room. Excellent restaurants, coffee shops and shopping only a short walk away. Couldn't ask for more!

Having stayed here once before and having thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I was looking forward to returning. The staff were very friendly, it was a bonus to have a continental breakfast included and the WIFI was great too. Unfortunately, however, I was left a little disappointed with the quality of the unit. The bathroom sink had a large crack in... More

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.

Spacious,clean and warm and had everything we needed. We were very pleasantly surprised to receive complimentary breakfast. On our return we had booked the two bedroom downstairs front... More
