“Fantastic Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

This Bed and Breakfast really is as beautiful as it looks on the website, and is finished inside and out to a very high standard.

Pam and Denis are the perfect hosts with excellent cooking and brilliant advice for exploring the area.

Lilac Rose goes above and beyond a Bed and Breakfast! I highly recommend it as a great place to stay to explore Christchurch and the surrounding area.

After a long search for an open B & B in Christchurch we (four of us) were welcomed at the last minute with great accomodations! Pam & Denis are wonderful hosts. We had a great time, great food and great hospitality. And no one can resist sweet Abbie, the Golden Receptionist. I wanted to take her home! We will definately be back on our next visit.

Stayed at Lilac Rose to 2 nights and the Garden Room we got is one of the prettiest room we've stayed in. There's even a vase of fresh roses in our room. Definitely a nice touch!

Pros:
* Although not very spacious, the Garden Room is very comfortable
* Fantastic cooked breakfast! Had the egg benedict on smoked salmon two days in a row.
* Wonderful host. Both Pam & Dennis are super friendly and they even helped us made dinner reservation at one of the great restaurant near by.
* Complementary internet access (wi-fi available)

Cons:
* Garden room does not come with en-suite toilet. However, we didnt have to share the toilet with anyone, so it's not a real problem to us.

Overall, it's a really great B&B. Wud definitely dropby during our nxt visit in Christchurch

Stayed for a wonderful 2 nights at the start of our 3 week trip to NZ. Lilac Rose is a beautiful B&B - our hosts Pam and Denis made us feel very at home and were a great source of information on the surrounding area and further afield (useful as our trip was ad hoc in terms of planning!). Breakfasts were great, the endless supply of tea/coffee was very welcome, and our room was very peaceful with a very comfortable bed. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to stay on the outskirts of Christchurch city centre.

My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room our last night in New Zealand. Our room was lovely and clean. We had our own private bathroom next to our room that was spacious and clean. Our hosts were friendly and attentive. We were able to use the hot tub and enjoy the grounds. I would recommend this b&b to anyone who is looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay. We were sad we only stayed one night. Our breakfast was delicious and enjoyed at our leisure.
The hosts have a friendly dog that was quiet and we enjoyed his company. Lilac Rose is within walking distance to grocery stores, and is in a nice location all around. Denis was helpful with everything we needed, and very friendly.(his wife was out of town the time we stayed) We would love to stay here again if we were in New Zealand again. We had a wonderful experience had very gracious hosts.

We stayed at the Lilac Rose in early April. We changed our plans slightly because of the earthquake like many people. We stayed at the Lilac Rose for the first and last night our our holiday in NZ. To put it simply-there is NO better B&B to stay in if you are heading to the Christchurch area. Pam and Dennis have truly thought of every single thing thing that makes a perfect stay in a B&B and they have added more. We were picked up at the airport by Dennis- after a long flight from the UK this was fantastic.The garden room was simply a stunning room to stay in overlooking their beautiful garden,everything is there for your comfort. The bathroom is really big with all the wonderful toiletries that Pam leaves for you to use . We had drinks in the evening, wonderful tea and cakes and the most fantastic choice of food for breakfasts. Pam and Dennis work so hard to make their guests welcome-they even took us out whilst we were waiting for time to pass before we flew home! If you are going to NZ first book your flight, secondly book the Lilac Rose. I promise you , you won't be disappointed. We cann't wait to return.

This Bed and Breakfast is a real gem.From being collected from the airport at 1.00 in the morning we were made to feel so welcome. Luxurious bedroom and bathroom, and breakfasts to die for.Best ever B & B!
