We stayed at Lilac Rose twice during our travels of New Zealand and the second time we arrived Pam and Dennis (and their beautiful dog Maddie) welcomed us back as old friends. The house is delightful with a gorgeous rose garden. We stayed in both the Garden Room and the Mulberry Room, both furnished beautifully. On our first stay Dennis was kind enough to pick us up from the airport and then the next morning, at an ungodly hour, happily took us to the train station for our TranzAlpine journey. This service was definitely above and beyond our expectations and we were so very grateful. The breakfasts were delicious, and the coffee and biscuits on arrival were very welcome. Lilac Rose is close to restaurants and the bus if you need to travel the short journey into Christchurch. We cannot recommend Lilac Rose highly enough. Don't look anywhere else if you are looking at visiting Christchurch.
