My husband and I stayed at this wonderful villa for only one night. Nonni made us so welcome and she has an amazing sense of humour. Our bedroom and bathroom were beautifully furnished. The breakfast was amazing, so much to choose from . Huge breakfast table where guests were able to share their travel tips. We could have sat there... More

Great hotel with a great owner. We only stayed one night, but the location was perfect and the breakfast was amazing. Breakfast is a large buffet - including anything and everything you'd need to cure a hangover - with family style seating. The only downside is if you're a light sleeper this may not be the best place as we... More

It was an incredible place to stay! The room was clean, quiet, and very tastefully furnished. Breakfast was an incredible homemade spread and the hosts and other guests were so... More

We need a new scale to rate Unique Villa. Peter and Anna have created the ideal B&B . This is like walking into your very best friends home and being greeted by your friends. Their service is beyond impeccable. The breakfast is sumptuous and served in a beautiful setting. The home is so inviting you almost don't want to go... More

A lovely small property. Perfect location between the park and downtown. Walking distance to everything with two nice restaurants on the block. The rooms have character and charm and are well equipped. Bed very comfortable. Nice breakfast in the morning and help-yourself tea, coffee, soft drinks. Lots of personal attention, such as scheduling a dinner reservation and offering an early... More

Hosts were absolutely awesome in making us feel at home, they have a lovely dining area, lounge with a big TV and fire. Room was huge, had underfloor heating, towel warmer. Is located right next to the beautiful botanical garden. Only problem we had was that the walls were very thin so early morning risers woke us up with opening... More

Great place to stay - right in the centre of the recovering City, a short walk to Hagley Park and Cathedral square. Truly nice building with excellent lounge and out door space to relax in. Has wifi as well if you really have too! Peter is a great host very friendly - didn't get to sample the breakfast but suspect... More
