We found Orari B & B the perfect place to stay for our brief holiday in Christchurch. Very conveniently located near the centre, it’s just 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the railway station. Located opposite Orari is a new modern building housing the Art Gallery and within a few minutes walk are the Canterbury Museum, Botanic... More

A truly gracious old house yet with all the mod cons. Good parking on site which is a bonus in the CBD. Our winter stay was lovely thanks to the outstanding heating - now can't wait to try Orari in summer and enjoy the gardens and more of downtown Christchurch!

Great location for CBD, Canterbury Museum, Art Gallery, trams etc Comfortable place to stay - far better than a faceless hotel - and warm and cosy, even on a chilly Christchurch winter's day. Lovely comfortable bed with electric blanket and quality bedding. Shower was excellent, as was underfloor heating in bathroom.

My boyfriend and I had a very nice stay at Orari, it's a lovely B&B. The room was beautiful and clean, plenty of heaters, which made it a very cosy stay in the cold weather, the breakfast was simple but delicious, and it was nice to have magazines in the lounge area. I would certainly recommend it to any of... More

We stayed 2 nights at Orari Bed & Breakfast last weekend. What a delightful place. From the moment Jan (Manager) greeted us on Saturday until we departed on the Monday morning we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room spacious, bed great, breakfasts very satisfying. Ambience and location awesome. Have already booked another stay in August.

Booked at the last minute for a stop over for our 25 yo son but he wished it was for longer. The staff could not do enough for our son from facilitating his late access on an international flight, waking him the next morning with a superb breakfast and being so friendly. He said it was like being in someone's... More

We stayed here for one night before the Transalpine crossing. We loved the location, it was easy to walk out and see the rebuilding of central Christchurch. Our room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. We had an early start, but Orari booked us a shuttle, and out out a good little DIY breakfast. All in all a... More
