Belmont on Harewood
Ranked #5 of 138 Christchurch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 11, 2012

On a recent trip to Christchurch our flight was changed, we landed too late to pick up our camper van. Alan was woken at 1:30am to see if they had a room, he stated they did and then promptly picked us up from the airport, delivering us to his beautiful home and in particular our boutique/colonial style bedroom, where we were made to feel very welcome. The super king bed, was also a drawing card and did not disappoint. In the morning we were greeted to a gorgeous breakfast, which Alan and Jan enjoyed with us, making the experience that little more homely. Alan then drove us directly to our camper van company and gave us directions for touring the city. Nothing was ever a problem, the Taylor's are fantastic ambassadors of Christchurch and are amazing people. Highly recommend the Belmont B and B to anyone traveling to NZ.

Thanks for the great review. The staff at the Christchurch I Site have a habit of finding nice people who are in need of a good sleep and they call us. It was a pleasure to meet you all and in a small way, welcome you to NZ and set you off with some extra tips to enhance your experience. You are very welcome to come again and we would love to be able to care for you with a god sleep and a hearty breakfast to start you off.

Travel safely.
regards Alan

From the first contact I was greeted warmly and with every endeavour to meet my needs... A large bed was organised for the only room available for our 5 night stay, a desk also added for my husband to be able to work in private. Fab breakfasts, lovely greeting on arriving back 'home' each day. Finally the airport pick up and drop off with Alan taking care of us with genuine kindness and a big hug. We heartily recommend Jan and Alan Taylor's delightful B&B.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, our final night was awesome in the Platinum Room, with wonderful full size spa...

Hi Eileen and Mark, sorry for the slow response to your great review. Jan and I loved meeting you guy's. It was great to be able to assist you in supporting our local people out there doing stressful earthquake recovery work. I am glad that we were able to be part of your plan.
Thanks for choosing us and I am pleased we were able to meet you needs and help you enjoy the stay.

Please be welcome to come again.

Howeve we were surprised by the warm welcome, the beautiful house, efficient transport-servise we got, and above all- the pleasant evening we spent with Alan and anpther 2 guest, talking about things that we love, things that bother us, and more...

Hi Nirit,
thank you for the kind words. It was great to share our home with you guys and it was equally enjoyable to sit and discuss the world and its differences with a diverse group of nice people.

I hope this and following years are good for you both and the chance to travel comes to you again soon.
Take care and go well.

Nothing was too much trouble for Alan. He picked me up at the airport, and took me into his home. He fed me breakfast, and while I was out at dinner, came at said that if I wanted a ride after dinner, he would pick me up. The amenities were nothing short of what you would expect from a man who takes such pride in what he does. A gem and a pleasure to stay there. I will be again.

Hi Ian, thanks for the words of praise. Sharing our home with nice people like you is a pleasure and its equally a pleasure to try and make your stay both comfortable and memorable.

Christchurch has heaps to offer despite the earthquake damage of the past and getting the chance to help show it off in its new light is both interesting and fun.

Take care and I hope this and following years are good for you.

We would love to see you again and provide that safe and comfortable home you enjoyed here with us.

Go well.

regards Alan and Jan

Me and my wife Taeko got to Christchurch after midnight and had the pleasure of staying at the Belmont one night in the begining of july/12.
Alan take us at the airport.
The house is very beautiful and comfortable.
The breakfest was realy good with fruits, juice, cheese, etc and the talking was agreeable. Unfortunately, because of work matters we stayed for only one night.
We totally recomend the place.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Belmont for a week while my house was being repaired. Jan and Alan are marvelous hosts, very friendly and welcoming. The house itself is truly amazing. It is heartwarming to see this wonderful Victorian mansion being so well preserved. The thirteen foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers and stained glass windows are something to behold! This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Platinum room. It was so big it was like having my own house.
