We stayed at Lilac Rose on our first and last night of our New-Zealand tour. It's a wonderful place, very charming, the breakfast is delicious (especially the rhubarb-raspberry crumble!) and Pam and Denis are very friendly and helpful hosts (without forgetting Abby!). We will definitly go back there again for our next trip to New-Zealand.

The Lilac Rose is a lovey, picturesque home that has all the amenities one would want including free wi-fi. As nice as the home is, however, the hosts are even better. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome, to help plan your trip, answer your questions, provide advice, and even offer you a drink at the door when you arrive. A top notch place that I'd stay time and time again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the grond floor and were able to walk out out door though the garden to the jacuzzi out...

We started our trip at the Lilac Rose on the 20th of november. It was the best place to start our Trip in New Zealand. Denis picked us up from the airport which was great. The room was lovely and the bed divine. Our room had an overview on the pretty rosegarden. We enjoyed the hot tub very much and the wine that was brought us, what a service. Our own private and floor!heated bathroom had a very nice shower and there were fluffy bathrobes for each one of us. The company of Abby the dog or the cat while sitting in de guestlounge with a nice cup of coffee and homemade cookies made us feel really at home.

For breakfast you can choose from cereals and homemade crumble and other light things or go for yummy cooked options like french toast, english breakfast and waffles that Pam makes from scratch.

Denis and Pam made sure we were well taken care of. We would suggest no other place than the Lilac Rose in Christchurch!!

We were in town from the US in June. We were very impressed with the beautiful house that is in a great location. It was great to spend time talking but to also be left to our privacy when necessary. The food was wonderful, it was difficult to decide which breakfast to choose from the tempting options. Overall a very comfortable place, great food, and wonderful hosts.

Was just using this b & b as a stop between flights which was a shame, would love to have stayed longer lol the breakfast was amazing everything is homemade and fresh I quite enjoyed the preserves and yoghurt. The hosts are very welcoming and will help you all they can.
