Fantastic service!!!!! I had to change rooms after one night and the great team moved my large amount of stuff for me - thanks. Cereal, milk and bread to make toast are provided which I hadn't realised but is a nice touch (jam and butter also provided) The spa baths are a lovely size but if there are two couples... More

We stayed for one night at Merivale Manor in a spacious room in the main house. The room was impeccably clean, very spacious with a queen bed, pull-out couch and a single bed to accommodate our family of four (2 kids under 7) and we still didn't feel too crammed in. Modern kitchenette which was well-equipped although we didn't use... More

We stayed at Merivale in the main building at either end of our 6 week trip on South Island. Handy for a walk onto the city, easy access to the airport, great accommodation and helpful staff...what more could you want! Our first stay on October was excellent and when we returned in December the new owners had taken over and... More

The room looked lovely but it was not very comfortable, The bed was old and saggy. The room was at the front of the motel and the traffic noise was quite loud. The shower leaked all over the floor each time we used it requiring us to use our towels to wipe up the water so that we didnt slip,... More

We stayed in this nice motel for our last stop of a 12 days drive trip thru New Zealand. Wayne and his wife are very friendly, helpful and accommodating just as all the owners we encountered during our trip. Excellent location, lots of restaurants to eat and shops in the area. Room was clean and comfortable, came with continental breakfast... More

Fantastic! We had a very special time at Merivale Manor. Karen and Wayne made sure everything was perfect. We stayed in a gorgeous room in the main manor - spacious and gracious. The decor is welcoming and stylish with lots of special extras. The bed was super comfy & I loved the bed linen, fluffy towels and great breakfast choices.... More

We stayed here on our first couple of nights and our last night, ini 2 different types of room: one in the manor house & one studio unit. The studio unit has a jetted tub, and felt great after such long travel. The manor house was lovely, very spacious with a great bath but no jetted tub. Wayne was very... More

Stayed here twice on our road trip with my parents - our first day and last day in NZ. I don't really know where to start - it was just an awesome and refreshing experience! I have stayed in Christchurch on number of occasions and this has been the best accommodation by far! I have got a really friendly email... More

Stayed in a studio spa bath unit for two nights in October 2013. The unit was spotless and very modern. The kitchenette was well stocked and the spa bath was a welcome luxury. Having stayed in at least half a dozen other motels in the area, I would highly recommend the Merivale Manor.

Merivale Manor is beautiful. The hosts Karen & Wayne are so welcoming. The accommodation is first class. We stayed in room 214 just off the front verandah. A quiet room with well equipped kitchenette facilities, and a lovely bathroom. The décor is really very special and is in keeping with the style of the Manor House. Well worth a visit!
