Our experience here set the stage for a great stay in Christchurch and became the litmus test for food and lodging during the rest of our three-week NZ trip. As others have noted, the location is ideal - an easy walk into the (rather depressing) Christchurch CBD and then onto the beautiful botanical gardens. Very friendly owners who make sure everything is shipshape and the kitchen is stocked for breakfast and snacks all day. The rooms are wonderful; updated and modern but still retaining the charm of the original historic building. Don't worry about noise coming from the pub. For whatever reason, it was very quiet even though you're right next door to a (incredible) pub. The pub, also owned by the innkeepers, is outstanding. An impressive array of craft beers from Christchurch and across NZ and a respectable wine list that also shows off NZ's best. The food was delicious too; "gastro pub grub" using the freshest ingredients and assembled with care. Turned out to be the best fish and chips we had in three weeks (and we know our F&C!) The smoked salmon salad also set the standard for the rest of our time in country. When we were there the weather was beautiful, so we could enjoy the cheery atmosphere of the garden and later retire into the very Englishy pub feel of the interior to listen to excellent live music. All this on a Sunday night!!
