“We could not improve in any way on standard of warmth and care and the accommodation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2011

A very well located and beautiful property on the outskirts of Christchurch, within walking distance of shops and food outlets. A garden full of fragrant roses and heavenly spar pool. A beautiful garden room in which we cosied down for five nights taking full advantage of the garden and spar (dressing gowns supplied!) Simply charming hosts in Pam and Dennis and their beautiful home made it hard for us to drag ourselves off sight seeing! We feel we made true friends. I just hope that we are able to return at some time in the future.

Wonderful hosts who go the extra mile to make you feel completely welcome and at home, We thought our Labrador Retriever was the soppiest dog on earth until we met Abby at Lilac Rose! Pam's Rhubarb and Raspberry crumble for breakfast was devine! Sorry to leave!

We would have stayed with Pam & Dennis or a week, a month, maybe more…The best of luxury yet cosy house and a warm family atmosphere, you will feel so much at home that you may just want to come back again and again. Recommended for an unexpected and affordable treat, for families or to those tired of 5 star hotels but will never backpack either. Great!

This is a beautiful old home (without the 'old' home smell or feel) that has wonderful modern bathrooms, bedrooms and amenities along with youthful and abunduntly helpful hosts. The gorgeoue rose gardens and private yard in a quiet suburb greet you when you first walk through the gates along with the most beautiful and quiet Golden retriever I have ever met. Pam and Denis made me feel right at home as it was my first night in New Zealand and I was all alone. They welcomed me with coffee, tea or wine when I came in the great room and introduced me to the other guests.
My room was beautifully decorated and had access to the yard and gardens from two sets of doors and a luxurious private bathroom right outside my door. Best shower head I had all month in NZ! Heated floor and towel racks, double sinks, bathrobes, lovely towels. My bedroom was comfy with lots of warm blankets and pillows, a heater, cold water at night, tea and coffee in the room, tv and lovely views of the yard and spa.
But the breakfasts were to die for!!! They made fantastic eggs and french toast and granola and yogurt and jams and sauces and wonderful coffees. You sit in their beautiful breakfast nook and gaze at all these incredibale rose bushes while you eat and think you are in heaven. They also had homemade biscuits any time of day available with their special coffees.
Pam and Denis were so heplful when my suitcase broke and I needed a new one, when I needed to buy a cell phone and with their suggestion of a GPS -- which I used the rest of my month long trip. They were the greatest advertisement New Zealand tourism could ever want. The town center was 10 minutes by bus and a shopping mall a few blocks away. Great location, great home, great amenities and great hosts!

This was a great stay. Pam & Dennis were great hosts, very friendly and very accomodating. They have a ovely family and really cute dog - Abbie who won our hearts.

The house is cute vintage home and the property well manicured with a lovely garden and gorgeous roses all over the yard.

We felt very much at home and truly enjoyed our stay.
