Lilac Rose exceeded all of our expectations. The property is beautiful and Pam and Dennis are friendly and welcoming hosts who made the last night of our holiday extra special. We had booked a twin room and they upgraded us to two separate BEAUTIFUL rooms. Unfortunately, we were only there for a night, so couldn't make the most of this beautiful location - but we can highly recommend the spa! The breakfast was also exellent. Couldn't recommend this place more, we felt like princesses!
'Lilac Rose' was our 'go to place' when our children were at boarding school in Christchurch. Whenever there was a function, we stayed there. They graduated, we moved house, times changed. Then after about 8 years I went back, delighted that they were still in business and it was like returning home. Such a gorgeous welcome. Endless cups of tea, comfy luxurious bed, and superb breakfast. It was a joy to be back. Pam and Dennis are a unique and gorgeous ,friendly couple and provide a first class amazing B&B . I am looking forward to the next time already.
We arrived here after a long flight from the UK and Pam & Dennis made us very welcome from the start. Lots of thoughtful touches in our room and in the lounge used for guests. We had the garden room which had easy access to the hot tub - very nice after a long day sightseeing and we had full access to the lovely garden. Easy to get into town either driving or bus and lots of places to eat within walking distance. Pam and Dennis were very helpful in helping us to plan our trip around Christchurch and our wider NZ itinerary. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and included home preserved fruit. Our room had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated and furnished. There was a fridge in the room which was great for drinks and snacks and Pam & Dennis were happy to provide ice or anything else we needed. A very friendly and hospitable couple and a lovely home. …
My dad and I stayed here as were traveling through. The house was beautiful and the hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly. They gave us GREAT recommendations for where to stop on our way from christchurch to queenstown. The home was clean, parking was easy, and the dog was the best part. Would stay here again.
We enjoyed our short stay at Lilac Rose. The room was comfortable and our host cooked us a delicious, hot & made-to-order breakfast. We had to head out early to the airport, but the owner got up early to cook for us. Thank you!
