Wonderful trip

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Dec 2018via mobile
We spent 9 nights stay at Clearview and had a fantastic time with Robin and Sue. Their home is luxurious and spacious and yet you feel trully like one of the family.
I will miss the wonderful breakfast every morning they prepared, and cause we are vegan they bought vegan food for us.
There are a lots of great things happen, we are almost their last guests, but I do experience more than “guest” but family.
A big thanks to Robin and Sue!

Thank you Yo, We really enjoyed having you to stay and hope you enjoyed your cooking classes in Christchurch. We enjoyed all the vegan treats you brought back home for us to try.
We were a little sad to say goodbye to the last of our guests and to know that Clearview Lodge will no longer operate under that name. We have had many wonderful years with guests and have moved a little further out of town. We will now have time to enjoy and visit our little granddaughter. Our email still works for us so if you want to golf with us, just send an email to our Clearview Lodge email.
Lovely to meet you.
Kind Regards

Sue

Reviewed 5 September 2018

WeI have spent in the historic lodge only one night before flying to Germany. Still, it was a great experience due to the caring and informative hosts of the lodge. The villa is conveniently situated in a walking distance from the natural reserve with a variety of birds, plants and animals and a Maori performance. Airport is 10 min by the car. Guest rooms overlook the garden; hence, it is quite there (until numerous birds will awake). Wine, fruits, Sue's tasty cake made the stay even more enjoyable. The lodge has a heated pool. Breakfast is perfect.

This was our second visit and once again we were welcomed and spoilt by Robin and Sue. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, the breakfasts delicious and personally cooked, the wine (from their vines) and home baking added to those personal touches that added to the beauty of the surroundings. Nothing is too much trouble for these gracious hosts. The guest lounge has a lovely view and comfy chairs with tea/coffee making facilities. Very convenient to the airport.

Room tip: We have stayed both downstairs and upstairs. Both rooms were excellent.

Room was lovely and Robin & Sue were great hosts. Sue even joined me for golf at Clearwater, which was really nice. Being local they were able to recommend good places to eat and even booked tables for us and arranged a cab for us in to the city. 5 star service.

Our room was excellent, nothing was missing, our hosts went above and beyond, I especially loved Sue’s honey, lemon &ginger tea, I was unwell & she was so caring. Staying with Robin &Sue was like staying with friends, breakfast time was so much fun we were reluctant to get up from the table. Should we ever return to Christchurch this is the ONLY place we could stay. We wish them prosperity for the future.

Room tip: Balcony room excellent

Sue and Robin saved us! After fleeing from a cyclone, we made a desperate search for accommodation in the Christchurch area and by sheer luck found Clearview Lodge. They went out of their way to make our short stay truly memorable. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, and sparkling. They recommended places to visit and eat that were perfect. The tour of their property was an added bonus. In retrospect, wish we could have stayed on a bit longer...
