We had naively decided to wait and see where we should stay once we arrived in Christchurch for our last two nights in NZ. We soon found out that everywhere was booked out solid for a long period of time.
We eventually found that there was one remaining vacancy at Garden View and jumped at the vacancy. We would have taken anything that night but what a surprise when we arrived and found this wonderful home with the extremely friendly and generous hosts, Beth and John.
We enjoyed a brilliant night at this B&B but had to leave at 4.30am to catch a plane. We insisted that we would quietly sneak out so not to wake everyone but Beth and John insisted that they would get up as they always farewell their guests.
If you are after a B&B where your every need is taken care of I would strongly recommend spending at least one night with these brilliant hosts.
