Ardross House is very easy to find - it is right on the main road north out of Christchurch. Surprisingly, it is nestled into the side of the road and the traffic noise is nil. The rooms look out over charming meadows. We breathed in the peace and tranquility.
Hosts Michael and Kathryn were friendly and good cooks to. Brekky was delicious.
The house is beautifully maintained, especially the breakfast room which was very inviting in the morning. We really found it hard to get up from the table.
It is only a two minute drive from town, so it was easy to go to town for dinner and there were many restaurants to choose from.
As gardeners we found the surrounds very interesting, especially the vegie patch.
The only drawback for us was that perhaps the bedrom could have been larger (but the bathroom was huge and very upmarket). Others may find the many stairs a drawback.
Overall, we loved it. We do not normally chose b & b's but on this occasion we are glad we did.
