Can't be less than 'Excellent'

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Mar 2022
We were given a voucher for Christmas.. Given a tour of the property on arrival, including a chance to change our booked room. We stuck with the one we had already booked, the blue room. The room had a view of farm paddocks. Nice to get away from the city life.

Took the opportunity to walk around the area of Terrace Downs. Christine gave some useful guidance on a path which gave a view of the gorge.

Pre-dinner drinks served outside on a warm evening, and expectations met with Robbie's cooking. Four courses, each superbly presented and very tasty.

Nest morning, a continental breakfast was all we needed, despite the offer of a further cooked breakfast available.

Thank you both.
Date of stay: March 2022
Room Tip: Only 4 rooms, any of them provide the same rural aspect.

Quickenberry and master chef Robbie provide an unforgettable culinary experience in a most beautiful setting, near the mountains, but so close to Christchurch. Both Christine and Robbie are wonderful hosts. I'm buying a bunch of gift vouchers for family and friends as I really can't think of a better or more memorable gift to give. My only 'complaint' to Robbie and Christine was in advice that they didn't charge enough! $390 is amazing value for a stunning 4-course meal, a full breakfast, an awesome setting and beautiful rooms & accommodation.

We had a fabulous stay here. Robbie and Christine are lovely hosts and very easy to talk to. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, there is a library, and the lounge with fire is great for winter drinks and chats.
The four course dinners were amazing, beautiful food and presentation.
As we were the only guests (sadly last minute cancellations due to COVID), the table was set up by the fire. Made it extra special.

Room tip: All rooms are good, open onto a small patio and then onto the outdoor grass and garden area. Shower only or shower over bath are an option.

You will be pampered and enjoy good company. The cuisine is worthy of a 5 star restaurant! Away up high near the mountains of Canterbury, this estate has mown grass everywhere with tall and beautiful trees. Next to a Golf Resort with a Gold Course to be proud of - world classs!

Room tip: Mid range prices for a five star place. Only 4 rooms with ensuite so you are never crowded and its fun to make new friends!

Christine & Robert hosted four of us last night at their delightful Quickenberry Lodge. On arrival Christine was very welcoming showing us to our tastefully decorated
rooms then served us tea & delicious chocolate cake.
We enjoyed pre dinner drinks in their comfortable lounge with Robbie joining us prior to our amazing four course dinner served in the intimate dining room.
Wonderful service & company was enjoyed by all!
A very special evening & hope to return one day.

A great experience. Christine and Robert were super welcoming and we had plenty to talk about while I was there.
The bedroom was classy, with lovely linen, lots of space, rural view, bath in the ensuite. Guests can also use a library and a large lounge with a fireplace.
I was the only guest and sat with them for dinner, though they were busy cooking and serving. Robbie cooked a gourmet four-course meal which was perfection. Local ingredients, great presentation and fab flavours.
A very special evening thank you
