The Orari B&B is very centrally located in Christchurch. There’s free parking, but be aware that the car park is tight! Jan greeted us on arrival and made dinner reservations for us. We were in room 9 at the top of the house. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large

We were only here for one night but wished it had been longer. A beautiful and spacious old house with lots of original art. The room was comfortable and we received a very warm welcome from Julie and the team. They also provide complimentary early evening drinks in the lounge

Ironically - given its history - there is nothing memorable about this guest house. A few thoughtful touches would make all the difference. A water jug in the rooms, fresh flowers, perhaps an update on some of the carpets. Perfunctory is the word here, there is no magic. Our

Response from topbnb, Manager at Orari Bed & Breakfast

It is disappointing that you found us 'perfunctory'. We would love to be able to look to see what may have gone wrong but without knowing the date of your stay and which room you were in, we cannot investigate. We would really like you to email us with some details, as we would do strive, and generally achieve a much better standard than your review suggests was the case for you. As you will have seen, the majority of our reviews are very good. Thank you for drawing our attention to your lessor experience.

Are there hair dryers in the rooms?
Hi Julie, yes there is a hair dryer + toiletries, eg. shower gel and shampoo. coffee and tea, I think chocolate as well. I travelled all over the south island, motels, hotels, pubs and a splurge at the Orari all had hair dryers. Orari bed and breakfast is beautiful, you will want for nothing! Fabulous breakfasts, comfortable and easy walking to most things to see and do in Christchurch. Have a fabulous time, the south island is just sublimely beautiful. Enjoy! kind regards Kerry
