We do not normally opt for bed and breakfast accommodation but were underwhelmed with the current hotel offerings in Christchurch (I miss the Crowne Plaza!). The situation is bound to improve as the recovery continues to gain momentum but the options were pretty limited when we looked. So we booked in to stay at Stoneleigh and were very impressed. Room price reasonably high but good value for money, especially compared to what the George is currently charging. Spacious, clean and tastefully decorated room with large and comfortable bed. Very clean bathroom. We were offered the use of a lounge area as well. Didn't have time to try the pool this time. Went for a walk down the lengthy and beautifully maintained drive to check out the alpacas and was greeted by a frisky Burmese (one of three much loved pusskins on the property). Back inside for a hearty breakfast of muesli and fruit, sausages bacon and eggs, toast and coffee. Hosts Chris and Liz very friendly and considerate but discrete and the house is so large that we truly felt like we had our own space. Very quiet and rural, but only 25 mins to the airport, so not much further away than the CBD.
