We had an extended long weekend in Christchurch to attend a family wedding, and stayed at Volcano Villa for three nights. It's location is superb, about 15 minutes drive to Christchurch in the delightful little port of Lyttleton, with interesting views over the harbour. The accomodation is the best of how B&B's used to be before so many of them became more like hotels. Our hosts were wonderful, and the breakfasts were large and yummy!
