They just restart the B&B after the earthquake in 2011 and renovated it. Pauline and her husband welcomed us after our 36 hours travel so warmly with coffee and biscuits. Rooms are very clean, modern new bathrooms. Walking distance to the Center and sites breakfast was just excellent with the best French toast ever. We recommend!

Great location, close to city, sights and eateries. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful, immaculate room, with tasteful decor. Newly decorated with excellent insulation and sound-proofing, despite being on a main road.

Stayed at Home Lea for 2 nights in December. Having just travelled around New Zealand sleeping in hostels, staying in a lovely family home was just what we needed. The ensuite room was lovely - not sure what number but up the stairs and immediately on your left. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very helpful and accommodating. Thank...

I rarely stay anywhere that I would consider better than my own house, so that should say what a great stay Home Lea was. Pauline and Gerald are tremendous hosts, cheerily welcoming me when I arrived late at 11:30am and equally cheerily seeing me off the next morning at 6:45, with a breakfast box thoughtfully ready. Breakfast was delicious with...

I had a lovely visit at Home Lea B&B in Christchurch. Very convenient location near the downtown, concert halls, botanical gardens. All just a short walk away. The host and hostess were friendly, helpful and good cooks!

Stayed one night at this charming double storey character house. Easy walk to cbd, resturants, galleries etc. Easy to get to and find. Great hosts and we were sold, over the phone, by the charm and sales pitch of their lovely daughter. We had an upstairs room at the back which was very quiet. Bealey street is a busy road...

Aside from the clean room, tasty breakfast and great location, this Bed and Breakfast should be known for the hospitality of the hosts. Gerald and Pauline Oliver were awesome. They made my whole family feel like an extension of their own family. They made calls to tourist locations, arranged transport, even dropped us off one time into town. I cannot...

The descriptionof this bed and breakfast should include that it is on a very busy main road. The traffic noise was constant until about 3AM. This was bad enough but our hosts decided to empty their Garage of bricks starting at 7AM so we had very little sleep. The accommodation is all rather dingy and old-fashioned, possibly my view of...

I have returned from a month touring NZ. Stayed in Home Lea B&B, 195 Bealey Avenue, Christchurch.This is an easy walk to Cathedral Square.
