We stayed for three nights during march. There was no problems with a late check in and it was easy to find from the airport. The location was good but as we had a car and friends nearby we cant comment on the surrounding amenities. Comfy clean room, & common kitchen with plenty of tourist info. Overall a great relaxing stay.thanks

Designer Cottage is an easy B&B to stay whild visiting Christchurch. The owner Chet has created some interesting outdoor courtyards amd gardens.

We booked in two nights in March at the Designer Cottage B&B, and really enjoy the realax, easy going B&B experience. Breakfast is continental, and served in the newly contracted function room. Viewed toward the water feature.

This is not a five star hotel, but a nice Kiwiana retreat with the lovely designer host.

We wish the B&B all the very best, and we are looking forward to return one day.

Room Tip: I will only booked the ensuite double room. Personally we don;t like sharing bathroom with others.

Designer Cottages is a great collection of several houses surrounding a central courtyard just south of the CBD. Far enough out however to be out of the Earthquake zone and if driving has easy street parking Very comfortable en-suite room that was very quiet with a Continental Breakfast that is the weather is good you can enjoy in the courtyard. Great value for what you get.

Thank you for the wonderful Christchurch experience. Off the high pace/noise of the main roads this "cottage" is found in a charming little community on the outside hub of downtown Christchurch. Close to Colombo street and all down town sights. Chet was a generous host, always being accommodating and generous whenever needed. Can't wait to come and stay again!

The designer cottage was a quaint comfortable place to stay. Not far from grocery stores, cafes, or entertainment in town. It's great to have personable people running the place as well. Being tucked along a residential street, it was nice to have it quiet and safe outside.
