We flew into Christchurch and Menteith County House was only a short drive from the airport. Fay and Steven could not have been more welcoming. Fay had already prepared a South Island Itinerary for me as I mentioned in my emails to her that we were struggling to decide what and where to visit.

The room was quite perfect, ensuite had a wonderful shower and there were lots of other small touches which showed their attention to detail and their desire to make our stay as good as possible. The bed was especially comfortable and I had a great night sleep. We had been up since 5.30 am so a good nights sleep was vey welcome

We shared breakfast with Fay and Steven on both mornings and also sat with them in their living room in the evening. Wifi internet access is available and we were able to book our accomodation for the next part of our journey. There is also an indoor pool and spa, which we did not use, but whcih looked extremely inviting

We dined in the evening at a pub close by. I forget the name but Fay provides a list of recommended restaurants in the immediate area and is happy to phone up and book a table.

It was a great start to our holiday in new Zealand and we would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to one and all

We stayed for the first two nights of our trip at Menteith House and what a wonderful start to our New Zealand trip it was! Planted in the middle of a picturesque country setting with animated lamas to boot, Menteith House was such a nice stay we felt quite wistful leaving! Faye and Steven were so warm, welcoming and friendly and made it their priority to make us feel comfortable in their home. The breakfasts provided were nutritious and home cooked and they took extra time to provide us with a variety of fresh juice options to please our taste buds. Our bedroom was very presentable and was equipped with a lovely ensuite bathroom, including a very good shower. Faye and Steven managed to be very professional, while also providing a personal touch that was special and memorable. We would recommend Menteith Country House without hesitation and hope to go back there again one day ourselves!

We stayed at Menteith for our first two nights in New Zealand and it was the perfect way to start our trip. Fay and Stephen were welcoming and friendly and their home was an ideal place to have a little peace and quiet after our 31 hour flight.

Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable with good facilities and a lovely hot shower. The breakfasts we had were both varied and delicious and we especially enjoyed the preserved fruit and honey that they produced themselves.

Both Fay and Stephen gave us great advice on where to buy low cost Merino clothing from and some places to visit on our trip around south island - the stop off in Hanmer Springs for a dip on our way up to Kaikoura was most refreshing!

All in all Menteith was a lovely, relaxing place to stay and Fay and Stephen were the perfect hosts. We would both highly recommend staying here.

With our daughter living in Lincoln and no spare beds in their house, we were looking for somewhere to sleep - and we discovered Menteiths. Whilst we were really only looking for a bed, somewhere to put our heads down...what we found was a luxurious, rejuventating escape. Fay & Stephen were warm friendly hosts, the house was beautiful and warm ( a far cry from a cold University house). The beds were divine, we slept late every morning. The room was perfect, everything you needed was there, and it was so beautifully laid out. I would certainly recommend this property.

Our first trip to glorious New Zealand and the South Island. So many memories of a wonderful holiday, including the lovely time spent with Fay and Stephen Graham at Menteith Country House just outside of Christchurch. Two knowledgeable, helpful and entertaining hosts, who made us feel so welcome and our Bed and Breakfast stay ultra- comfortable in one of their immaculate guest suites. The house and gardens are delightful (as are the alpacas they keep in the garden). Fay (who has worked in the travel industry) gave us all sorts of great advice and hints for our itinerary, which proved invaluable, and we felt very lucky to have chosen what must be one of the best, if not the best, home stays in New Zealand. We can't recommend a stay here highly enough - we will certainly be back to renew our acquaintance with this lovely couple (and p.s. to enjoy Stephen's breakfasts - simply scrumptious!).
