We spent only one night at Vivienne's delightful B&B (start of a touring holiday), but would thoroughly recommend this as a base for a longer stay in Christchurch. Excellent facilities, beautifully cooked breakfast, and lovely environment with well-chosen art works. Vivienne was a charming host - helpful and most interesting to talk to. Situated in a beautiful area of Christchurch;... More

Vivienne welcomed us warmly as we arrived in the early hours of the morning after a much delayed midnight flight into Christchurch. We slept like logs in the most comfortable bed and woke to a yummy breakfast. I recommend Thornycroft B&B because Vivienne reflects the warmth of character and friendliness that we experienced all across this earthquake-battered, recovering still beautiful... More

We stayed 2 nights at Christchurch for New Year and had a great time! Vivienne is such a charming host and made us feel like home. We spend very nice moments to chat with her and exchange about our experience, where we came from and family trees. Vivienne knows a lot about local history, specially the Akaroa and French immigrants.... More

As we were planning our trip to New Zealand we wanted to stay in Christchurch a little longer this time to experience the city. So we wanted a place not too far from the centre, but safe in regards to earthquakes and maybe not too far away from the airport. We choose B&Bs when we think we can profit from... More

We had the pleasure of staying two nights with Vivienne and Ruby (her cat) during a recent trip to Christchurch for our daughters Graduation. Vivienne is the perfect host, sharing her home with complete strangers and making us feel like part of the family - nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and private. Each morning we were... More

We stayed only one night but wished we had longer at 40 Thormeycroft St B&B. A quiet, comfortable, private bedroom with perfect, crisp bedlinen and an en suite with top quality bath products and everything you could possibly wish for, provides perfect comfort in an elegant modern spacious house with a private, tranquil courtyard garden where our breakfast was served....

40 Thornycroft is as close as you'll ever get to having your own house in town - but with the benefit of a charming host to cook a lovely breakfast and tidy your room! We had the Rhodes Room which has its own private bathroom across the landing. Not ideal but didn't detract from our enjoyment of our stay at... More

From the moment we drove in, we were impressed. We are very fussy about cleanliness, this place is spotless and Viv applies attention to detail. Viv was warm and friendly on our arrival, welcomed our children, gave us hints of where to go and how to get there. Spoilt us with scrumptous food, sent us to a great restaurant within... More
