We would not have thought to stay here except for many Christchurch accommodations being booked or closed due to the earthquake. While we were very sad for the loss in Christchurch, the silver lining was that we discovered this place, and we met Beth and John. It was like visiting my grandparents, except really cool grandparents who are interesting and... More

Garden View is a very nice place to stay, but what really sets it apart are the innkeepers, Beth and John Keoghan. They have a way of making you feel that you are staying with family (family you LIKE, that is!). Shortly after arrival we commented that we had not seen kiwi fruit jam anywhere in New Zealand. Within minutes... More

We had naively decided to wait and see where we should stay once we arrived in Christchurch for our last two nights in NZ. We soon found out that everywhere was booked out solid for a long period of time. We eventually found that there was one remaining vacancy at Garden View and jumped at the vacancy. We would have...

We returned on 2 more occasions as we were touring New Zealand for the rugby world cup, there was always a warm welcome. Lovely breakfasts with home made jams and... More

Our first stop in New Zealand was the Gardenview Bed & Breakfast in Rolleston with Beth and John Koeghan. We were a little apprehensive because we had never stayed at a B&B before, but right away they made us feel welcome in their home with hot tea and cookies. They were genuinely interested in learning more about us, how we... More

Our family (2 adults + 3 young boys) stayed a few days with Beth and John. Their highly personalised attention was beyond service - we felt immediately accepted into their family. They are very warm and inviting, full of interesting knowledge and information and amazingly patient with young kids. The accomodation rooms are 5-star, and its easy to find on... More
