We arrived at the B&B in the morning after a 20+ hour journey from the US. We had emailed with Viv earlier and arranged to drop our bags off before the room was ready. On the way to the house, the taxi driver pointed out that it was in a "very posh" part of town. We met Viv and she... More

We only had one night here before flying out for our journey back to the UK. We enjoyed it a lot. We were welcomed well and it was very good to connect with the host who was warm, helpful and smart! We were given good tips about various local restaurants and then a reservation was made for us when we... More

This house is beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. Vivienne is a lady of refinement who looks after her guests with care and consideration. Her healthy breakfasts are mainly home made and delicious. We ate a takeaway from a local Indian restaurant back in the courtyard garden on our second night there as we had to leave at 4.30am to...

Absolutely the best bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed in. A home away from home, conveniently situated near central Christchurch and Hagley park. Vivienne went the extra mile for us. Her professional manner and attention to detail made this a memorable stopover.

My husband and I spent 3 weeks travelling around the South Island and were looking for somewhere comfortable, clean and relaxing. Viv was lovely and easy to chat with about the history of Christchurch and gave lots of advice on places to visit whilst in Christchurch. The house was very clean, the bathroom and bedroom were immaculate. The food was... More

Greeting us at the front door like long lost friends, we were welcomed into Vivienne's home after our long drive, beautifully. The house was immaculate, and nothing was too much trouble for her (even trying to hunt down a lemon for a much needed gin and tonic!). Our bedroom was bright and comfortable, ensuring a wonderful night's sleep, ready for... More

This was the first time I had stayed at 40 Thornycroft. Vivienne was a fantastic host. I felt like I stayed with a family friend. Very welcomed and comfortable. The room and bathrooms were immaculate and clean. It was a very cold night but the house was warm and comfortable and quiet. Great sleep. I would easily recommend. Oh and... More

We spent only one night at Vivienne's delightful B&B (start of a touring holiday), but would thoroughly recommend this as a base for a longer stay in Christchurch. Excellent facilities, beautifully cooked breakfast, and lovely environment with well-chosen art works. Vivienne was a charming host - helpful and most interesting to talk to. Situated in a beautiful area of Christchurch;... More

Vivienne welcomed us warmly as we arrived in the early hours of the morning after a much delayed midnight flight into Christchurch. We slept like logs in the most comfortable bed and woke to a yummy breakfast. I recommend Thornycroft B&B because Vivienne reflects the warmth of character and friendliness that we experienced all across this earthquake-battered, recovering still beautiful... More

We stayed 2 nights at Christchurch for New Year and had a great time! Vivienne is such a charming host and made us feel like home. We spend very nice moments to chat with her and exchange about our experience, where we came from and family trees. Vivienne knows a lot about local history, specially the Akaroa and French immigrants.... More
