“Beautiful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was a brilliant B&B and an ideal place to stay after a day of whitewater rafting - was only about a 30 minute drive away from Rangitata Raft company. Rick and Evalyn immediately make you feel at home. The rooms are very well presented and quite large so plenty of space to move. Loved the large bathroom and a decent showerhead as well along with cuddly-schmuddly ( that's a word) towels. Free wi-fi is a nice touch. Breakfast showcased the local produce in style. I would definitely stay here again.

This was our second stay at this lovely B&B, and it was every bit as good as the first. Rick and Evalyn really know how to make their guests feel welcome. We arrived after an exhausting overnight flight and were instantly made comfortable. I can’t imagine the work and energy it takes to run a B&B, but we very much appreciate their efforts and will happily return on our next visit to Geraldine…and perhaps stay a bit longer!

If you're looking for a top quality B&B one hour south of Christchurch this is the one to go for. My wife and I stayed only one night here in Feb 2013 but we were still treated like royalty. From the moment you turn into the drive you feel you are in South Fork territory. Beautifully scented standard white roses line the path to the front door. Rick and Evalyn are really super hosts. We were offered a cool beer before we'd even unpacked. Then, a little later there were pre dinner drinks sitting and chatting in their stunning lounge. The dinner, which we'd requested a day before, was delicious. Again we sat with Rick & Evalyn sipping wine and hearing about their building in one year of the fabulous house. Our bedroom was similarly beautifully designed and furnished.Next morning the excellent cooked breakfast was prepared by Rick.

There was a bit of noise from the nearby road but that wouldn't trouble us if we ever visit the area again. Geraldine itself is a very nice little town. I wouldn't bother taking the Inland Scenic Highway. Better to get to Chch early and use the time there.

We spent one night at Richlyn Park B&B at the end of our three week tour of the South Island.

This is the beautiful home of Rick and Evalyn, an oasis they built themselves to exacting standards. It's obviously a labor of love; it oozes quality and superb workmanship.

As light sleepers, we initially had concerns about the B&B's location on the main road into town, but Geraldine is pretty sleepy, so it was a non-issue.

They offer two queen bedrooms to guests, both located in a separate wing of their lovely home, offering complete privacy. There's a coffee/tea making station in the hallway nearby.

Our room was perfect; spacious with a large closet/changing area, massive bathroom with heated floors, accessible shower, good water pressure, posh thick bath towels and excellent lighting. Everything was immaculate and fresh, comfortable and warm.

Upon our arrival, we were invited to share a drink with Rick and immediately made to feel at home. After dining in town, we were welcomed into their warmly decorated lounge where we were offered tea and had a nice chat. With morning came more good conversation and a nice cooked breakfast. Rick makes some mean grilled tomatoes on toast

Rick and Evalyn are lovely people and caring hosts. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
