Review of Merivale Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Feb 2021
A seasoned Antarctic traveler for work, pre-covid travel to the ice was relatively simple. This year though in order to keep the Ross Sea region of Antarctica covid-free, we had a two-week pre-deployment stay in the Merivale Manor. This seemed weird and OTT since NZ was in level 1 at the time – but from stepping foot in the door Kate and Matt were super welcoming, highly professional, and their warmth, care and friendliness set our minds at ease and made for a great stay.

We stayed in main house of the Merivale Manor, the rooms was fantastic and roomy (I was spoiled with the Peacock Suite), very clean and well equipped kitchenettes, the grounds kept immaculate, top balcony perfect for evening drinks. There is a great little library, a nice lounge with coffee machine and comfy couches on the bottom floor, and sufficient little gym. The staff were very friendly and professional, and since we were in managed isolation, we had the luxury of great catered meals.

Kate and Matt really understood what it meant to be away from family and our furry children (pets) so we even got to spend time walking Willow their dog around the perimeter of the property. All in all I thoroughly recommend Merivale Manor and thank Kate, Matt and their team for a great stay!
Date of stay: January 2021
Room Tip: Peacock suite was superb!

A two week stay turned into an undoubtedly the most memorable three weeks of my life. You will fall in love with this place the moment you walk in. The rooms are magnificent and spacious with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The furniture and arrangement gives you peace. Matt and Kate are superb hosts and employ very exciting staff who are super friendly and helpful and know how to make your stay even better. You cannot complain about anything and will leave with a bigger smile.

Whether staying for a short while, or a long stay as I was in managed isolation prior to Antarctic travel, this hotel is a pleasure to stay in. Our group stayed in the Manor house part of the complex and it has been beautifully restored. The rooms are luxurious, well furnished, air conditioned, have small kitchenettes perfect for to odd little extra meal preparation and the bathrooms are beautifully appointed.
The rooms and facilities are fantastic but what really makes a stay here special are the hosts and their superb staff. There is nothing they won't do to make your stay here memorable. Thanks Kate and Matt.

Room tip: Some suites have 2 rooms, lounge and bedroom while others are larger single rooms. All rooms are remarkably quiet. Great balcony!

I had the pleasure of a 2 week stay in the Manor. Room 210 was a stunning self contained room with immediate outside access. The room was exceptionally clean, well maintained and well stocked. All staff wore facemasks, there is ample hand sanitiser and all other precautions were taken to ensure guests remained Covid-19 free! Matt, Kate and the team went above and beyond to ensure that we were wll looked after and havde evrything we needed. The Manor is well situated in the heart of Merivale, walking distance to one of Christchurch's nicest cafe strips, and extremely close to the centre of town. There is plenty for the whole family, with bikes, basketball, games, a TV lounge and lovely kitchen. Despite only living around the corner, I'll definitely come and stay again. Thanks for the incredible hospitality - 2 weeks flew by! Thanks team

Room tip: Rooms upstairs have nice view of the property, rooms down stairs have direct outdoor access
