The Classic Villa is in the perfect location for exploring central Christchurch on foot, with the Botantic Gardens, Museum, Art Gallery and Art Centre right on your doorstep. The villa is full of authentic charm and our room was well appointed. What made our 3-night stay particularly special was the warm welcome we received from our hosts, Costa and Despina, who were happy to share their knowledge of the locality, recommending some excellent restaurants and attractions. We'll be sure to return the next time we're in Christchurch!

My husband and I had a lovely staycation at The Villa, Costa and Despina are great hosts and we loved our chat over breakfast the next morning. My husband also left his phone behind and they made sure they located it and it was left somewhere easily accessible for him to collect the next day.

Beautifully restored and decorated villa in the heart of ChCh. Wood and light fixtures and cut glass - even the door knobs give the feel of old ChCh. Welcoming owners made check in a breeze. Cozy gas fireplace, robes and slippers were good for winter. Breakfast was muesli and fruit, juice, fresh bread and croissants in a communal dining room - perfect way to start our day. Romantic getaway.

We recently had a two week stay at The Classic Villa, transitioning from Australia to New Zealand. This stay exceeded our expectations due mainly to the warm and welcoming hosts who looked after us well and went above and beyond for us. We enjoyed the communal breakfast and lounge areas which offered an opportunity to relax or engage with other guests. Our room was comfortable and warm and surprisingly quiet. The location was excellent and walking distance to many places. Highly recommend and much nicer than a sterile motel or hotel room.

Beautiful villa in the city, not only a great location but staying here is more than a home away from home as you feel quite spoiled. Our room was very comfy, lovely big shower and gorgeous smelling toiletries. Breakfast and late night cups of tea included loads of interesting conversations, such a bonus. Thank you for having us!
