Best Accommodation and Host Experience

Review of Merivale Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Apr 2022via mobile
From the warm welcome on arrival to the most comfortable tastefully decorated accommodation, the Merivale Manor for us was the highlight of our six week South Island road trip. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. They made us the best barista quality coffee, somewhere to clean our car and good laundry facilities are just a few of the things we appreciated. We stayed for three nights. Really comfortable bed, hence the best sleeps on our travels. Handy location.
A home away from home. A huge thankyou to our hosts Karen, Wayne and Josh.
Date of stay: April 2022
Room Tip: Great car park outside the door of our ground level unit. Uber to CBD/tram system under $10....
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Every time we visit Christchurch Merivale Manor is our first stop. Wayne & Karen are very welcoming & fun. Great position near the city centre & easy walking distance to Hayley Park, gorgeous Botannical gardens art centre etc. They will provide us with bikes too.

We have a favorite room but they are all spacious clean & comfortable

Highly recommended & we will be back.

I absolutely LOVED my stay here! The manor is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Beautiful refurbished old style with a modern flair, leaving your feeling so comfortable and homely. The bedding sucks you in and you never want to leave. Karen and Wayne and always there for anything you need and go above and beyond! My partner had been in a paragliding accident soon before I arrived and I had to leave him in hospital to fix some broken bones, and they waited up until 11.30pm for my now solo arrival to see if I was ok and then laid all his stuff out for him in the garage to dry out. So kind!! Very much recommend!!!I

We stayed in the family suite, which was perfect for 2 couples (our parents and ourselves). The accommodation was very elegant, immaculately clean and felt like a home away from home. The hosts, Wayne and Karen were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the location was ideal - very central, within walking distance to great shops, cafes and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again!

A fantastic place to stay. Wayne was so welcoming, the room was immaculate and beautiful and the rest of the house was amazing. Will definitely stay here every time we go to Christchurch. Having an evening drink on the balcony in the sun was so lovely.

Room tip: We had a suite at the back and it was beautiful. Very Quiet
