We stayed for 3 nights and even from before booking, Shelley and Craig worked hard to please to accommodate our stay. Beautiful room and lovely location to get to the beach. A cooked breakfast was offered every morning along with plenty of fruit, cereals, bread and juices. Craig is a pleasure to talk to, really very welcoming and will provide... More

We stayed at the Beach B&B for one night while touring around ChristChurch in Feb 2015. Craig, the proprietor was excellent at giving us tips and hints as to where to eat and what to do. He also filled us in on what happened in the earthquake of 2011... All in all, it was a very good stay. We had... More

This was our first accomodation during our round trip in NZ and we loved it! We were not in the best mood when we arrived due to the fact that my suitcase got lost on our trip to Christchurch (Craig: I got it back when we left NZ 10 days later) but Craig was such a great host that I... More

We were only able to stay one night, but were so happy we found this spot. The room had everything we needed, the breakfast was great, and our host, Craig, was most personable and lots of fun to chat with. A quick walk to a wonderful beach and the sound of the surf off our balcony were an extra bonus.

We stayed 5 nights in this lovely, welcoming b&b in January 2015. The location is perfect for visits into the centre of Christchurch from the bus stop just around the corner. Christchurch is recovering well from the earthquake with the very interesting temporary Cardboard Cathedral and the shipping container shops area the highlights for us. The beach and the park,...

We had only one night in Christchurch and were delighted to find At The Beach B&B which is less than 100 m from the beach and has tastefully decorated rooms. Craig is very helpful and ready to assist with activity selection. A very enjoyable stay.

We stayed at the B&B for two nights in Nov. After an initial mix up with the rooms, we settled in and the room was nicely presented. On site parking and cooked breakfast is included in your room rate. Breakfast was great. Hosts were very welcoming and took the time to have a drink and talk about Christchurch. Recommend based...

This B&B is located just across the street from the Pacific Coast, we had a view of the Ocean and enjoyed listening to the surf. Craig and Shelly were great host, extremely personable and provided us some very nice... More

The B&B is some way away from Christchurch city centre and 1 min from the beach. The rooms are immaculate, very comfortable, very well decorated and the beds are excellent for a good night's sleep. It has onsite parking for two cars which might be limited if there are more than two guests but street parking is available if need... More

Breakfast was from 8am to 10am. I asked if I could have an earlier breakfast at 7.30am. Was told that was no problem. I arrived to the dining room at 7.30am and had to turn the lights on as there was no-one there. There was no heating on and it was freezing. I helped myself to a box of cereal... More
