We have stayed at the Gables a number of times over the past ten years. It is located in the Banks, Peninsula, a spectacularly beautiful part of the South Island. Lin and Chris are charming and attentive hosts. Their meals are exceptional and unique, with almost all the food grown on the premises. The guest room is somewhat small, but very tastefully appointed. We always make a stay at the Gables a part of our itinerary when we are in the Christchurch area.
