We booked this room based on reviews, so was extremely surprised to find out it was nothing like the website or reviews. *Our complimentary toiletries, which are expected anywhere not the least somewhere advertised as luxurious, was wall mounted pump soap/shampoo. Just like public toilets. *Slippers were old, used and dirty. I also found hair in them. See pics. **There... More

This is the third time we've stayed in this luxurious B&B almost on the beach at New Brighton, Christchurch. In a two-storey modern building, it is all quiet elegance and privacy. There is also a great breakfast room downstairs, with all types of cereals, fruit salad, meusli, yoghurts, toast, and hot food if required, as well as coffee and several... More

Stayed here in March for a few nights after driving up from a family wedding in Clyde before flying back home to Scotland. Craig was extremely friendly and helpful, took some time to sit and get to know us and also recommended us a number of places to visit and gave us tips on where to go to eat out... More

Great B & B - very very smart, neat, tidy and clean. In the cold weather when we arrived they had switched the heater and electric blanket on so the room was warm and toasty! Awesome shower and great bathroom and all you need in a room. The owners are lovely they moved us from the upstairs room we booked... More

This was our last stop of our tour before flying home. It was the perfect end to our holiday. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was just right. Craig was a friendly and generous host. Advised us about travelling to the city by bus and also arranged a taxi to drive us to the airport. We would definitely recommend... More

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,...
