Good location, close to museum, art gallery and gardens, rooms downstairs were dark but nicely furnished and large, en-suite small and a bit cramped as an add-on in corner of the room. Large continental breakfast selection.

Date of stay: September 2018

Lovely people providing a very clean establishment and wonderful breakfast in a great location just a stone throw from the Botanic Gardens and Hagley Park. With the benefit of hindsight I would have booked a bigger room but oin the end it had everything we needed.

What a wonderful overnight stay we had in your delightful Villa! So close to town for walking and checking out the sights! Hosts just superb! Room magnificent! How lovely to have one of original Christchurch Villas so beautifully renovated and up an running after the earthquake. The room/ en-suit immaculate!

Room tip: Room 2, allocated by the Hosts! Great choice

Stayed in one of the four rooms located on the second floor of The Classic Villa at the back of the building in what feels like a far later addition to the original construction.
As such they do not have the same old world charm as the front, ground floor rooms. I imagine staying in the ground floor rooms is a delight, however the second floor rooms are average, hence the rating. Second floor rooms are also most likely to be the rooms you will secure if booking through trip advisor (cheapest).

Important to note that the check-in process was easy, and parking available. Unsure if the car spots would be free if all rooms were booked and all travellers had cars; only appeared to be 5 parks available.

Hi James, I am having problems finding your booking. What date did you stay with us.
The upstairs rooms are the newer rooms. They are all Super Deluxe Rooms, therefore a lot bigger than the downstairs rooms. The Trip Adviser rooms are normally the 4 Corporate / Business Rooms downstairs. You were probably given a free upgrade to a Super Deluxe Room upstairs. We also have 2 Deluxe and 2 Super Deluxe Rooms downstairs.
Guests can always request a downstairs room.
Hopefully you will return and experience these on your next trip.
We have 6 Car-Parks available. A lot of our guests do not have cars. If the car-park is full we pay for on street parking
Cheers
Peter
