Reviewed January 7, 2013

Our trip to the South Island was made even better by staying in such a lovely accommodation, close to the Beach lovely continental breakfast. Lovely Restaurant next door for lunch. Top quality through out, very comfortable beds, very clean. Craig and Shelley perfect Hosts, couldn't do enough to help us.

We had a wonderful night At The Beach B&B. When we first arrived booking.com had only had the reservation for 2. However, it was easily corrected with a cot from our host, Craig. The room was spacious. Clean. Modern. Large bed and bathroom. Nice continental breakfast in the morning. Close to the beach.

Room Tip: I would suggest booking directly with Craig.

This B&B is perfect if you want to stay out of town it also within reach of the beach. It is modern and all facilities are as if new, nice. It shower and very comfy bed.

The proprietors are very friendly and helpful and a good selection is provided for the continental breakfast.

Being out from the city you will need a car to get around, bt you can also borrow their bikes for a more energetic way to get around.

Very modern take on a B&B. Super clean, almost new. Spacious. Service upon arrival was not-so-welcoming. But owner Craig couldn't have been more friendly the morning of our departure. Right at the beach. Need a car to get to other amenities though.

Pros:

1. The room was very clean and fresh. Bathroom is super clean, bed are superbly comfortable and a lovely garden.
2. Facilities are new: fridge, heater, tv, dvd player (no sky tho), but they got a million and one DVDs that you can watch for months.
3. Guests can borrow bicycles to bike around the beach track.
4. Hosts were friendly and helpful.
5. 1 minute walk to the beach...awesomely beautiful beach.
6. Parking.
7. Breakfast.
8. A lovely cafe just right next door.

Cons
1. Sky TV would be a plus.
2. Hot breakfast would be nice as well.

We booked rooms for three of our employees who worked several days in Christchurch.and they were so well cared for they felt they were on holiday. The rooms are modern, clean and fresh and the hosts were excellent, including providing an evening barbecue for their guests on the last evening.

Room Tip: The B&B is not central, which can be an advatage and the cafe next door makes awesome coffee and...

The hosts were great; very friendly, but not in your face. Very comfortable room with modern, clean, simple decor and design. Lovely en suite with huge shower! Cafe next door had fantastic staff and delicious food. A great place to stay over all.
