Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely stay at Merivale Manor, the room was very comfortable and well appointed. Wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to make us comfortable, including rearranging the furniture to meet my exacting requirements! We had a very good sleep and would definitely stay here again.

I visited Merivale Manor prior to joining a hiking tour with Active Adventures. We arrived a day before the tour began so we only stayed for one night. I booked the entry level room, a studio spa. Had I been staying longer I may have upgraded the room. We found the proprietors to be very friendly and helpful. The room was nicely sized with a small kitchen area and a very modern bathroom. The shower had great water pressure. Merivale is an area just north of Christchurch proper, about a 30 minute walk to the Riverside Market. For dinner we walked to Tutto Bene, a very nice Italian restaurant about 5 minutes north of the hotel. Also nearby is the Mevimale Mall. There is a very upscale grocery store inside the mall that has just about everything. From their deli area I purchased two meat pies for breakfast the next morning. Overall, this was a great introduction to Christchurch.

We were fortunate to stay at Merivale Manor two separate times during our month in NZ. The location, amenities, and hosts were really the best we found. The ability to walk into downtown Christchurch, or stay close in a great neighborhood with good restaurants, pubs, and shopping, was a definite bonus. Our room was warm and had just what we needed for 2: a small dining table, kitchenette, TV by the bed, and an enormous bathroom. Casey brought us a large breakfast for each morning and with our dinner leftovers, our fridge and kitchen got plenty of use. Casey helped us navigate walking around and sightseeing, gave us some ideas for other things in see on the South Island, and helped us finish the laundry when we had places to go. The parking was easy and spacious and we got some great flat whites and groceries at the mall just steps away. Casey's genuine hospitality and welcoming personality made coming back to the Manor feel like coming home when we returned for our second visit. We truly enjoyed everything about our two stays here.

Wonderful place and wonderful managers. Rooms are really confortable and the people very friendly in a quiet place. City center is very close and not so far from the airport. Self laundry service very good and the cleaning service of the rooms is first category

Stunning residence and very well set out room. Location ideal to get around and pubs and cafes nearby. While the main road is a busy one - noise in the rooms wasn’t too bad. And the owners - lovely and very responsive to questions etc. when back in CC…. Will return!

This was my second time staying with the charming folks of The Merivale Manor. It was lovely to see some friendly faces and have a good old chat. The accommodation in the main house was absolutely fantastic ! My Kiwi hosts were awesome, as always. A little gem in Merivale with a touch of nostalgia. The Manor is within easy walking distance to the Merivale Mall which offers loads of dinning opportunities with a bit of shopping if you need it. Hagley Park is just around the corner if you fancy a walk, just to stretch your legs or get in some exercise. Just lovely, thank you folks, for being part of a brand new chapter.
