A bit disappointed!

Location, hot shower, attentive staff
Picked it as close to friend I was visiting & had breakfast included. Looks lovely from the outside but a bit tired inside. Weather was cold but heating in room adequate & electric blanket very effective. Nice to have access to kitchen for tea, coffee but breakfast was a real let down. I was the only guest during my stay and the guy in charge hovered awkwardly & made me feel uncomfortable. (In the end I asked him to sit down & tried to chat). Had to ask both mornings for a cup of tea which was a bit strange. Breakfast was basic - excelled in selection of jams & marmalades but otherwise disappointing. Thought it was pricey for what you get - I'm used to Queenstown prices but it was steep by comparison! Probably wouldn't choose to go back there again.

Great place to stay near the city

Staff were very helpful explaining the area and things to do, friendly and place was very clean
I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay at the cottage. The owner explained the city and provided me with a map of things to see and do which I found very useful since I only had a short amount of time in Christchurch. The cottage is in a great location and was very clean and quiet.
