Just returned from a fantastic 8 night stay at the Merivale Manor. The Merivale is in a great location, within walking distance of Christchurch town centre, local restaurants and bars. The rooms are very well equipped and of a very high standard. The room was serviced each day to the same standard as if you had just arrived. Look forward...

We stayed in one of the Spa studios, while our daughter - the Bride and Bridesmaids stayed in the Manor. We couldn't have asked for anything more from Wayne and Karen, all the little extras in the room - like flowers and chocolates and spotless rooms, and accommodating my husband's requirements to watch his football match, resulting in a late...

We booked a room in the manor house which was perfect for us. Great extra details made by the owners and the hosts could not have done anything more to make our stay better. Merivale shops and restaurants just a 5 min walk away otherwise the bus into the city centre stops outside the hotel. We'd definitely recommend staying here.

Excellent start to our New Zealand holiday! The hosts, Wayne and Karen, were very friendly and helpful assisting with sights to visit as well as the best route to drive around the South Island. On arrival we were upgraded, fabulous room full of charm and character. We returned for our last night in New Zealand and staid in the studio...

This is really nice place with rooms in the old Manor House which has been refurbished to a high standard as well as Motel units in the front drive. We stayed in both as we had to change our booking following the earthquake. If we had to book again, we would definitely stay in the Manor House, even though it...

Everything is spotless. Everything works. Every detail is thought of. Very warm welcome from the owners who know what you are likely to want and make helpful recommendations. POWER showers. Location is close to the town centre.

Extremely nice manor/motel in Christchurch, NZ. The couple that owns it go out of their way to accommodate their guests and make them feel at home. Everything is very nicely put together and taken care of. Would definitely stay there again

This motel is a gem. Decor was lovely, the room was spotlessly clean and the staff absolutely lovely. It is wonderful to stay at a place which is so obviously loved by its owners. Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Christchurch.

This is a very nice and quiet place to stay. Located on Papanui Road in Merivale, Christchurch, it is just one of many accommodations along both sides of the road. The grounds are impeccably landscaped and consist of a grand old house flanked by two parallel buildings with ground level suites with a driveway / courtyard in between. I think...

Great little B&B near Christchurch. The rooms are nice and the service is super exceptional. We asked for early check-in and got it with fresh espresso and a smile - 6 hours early! Our hosts were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Could not recommend this place more.
