Superb hospitality”
Chet and his colleagues were extremely professional in the carriage of their duties. We were greeted warmly, given an excellent map of the area. Activities available and how to access them were carefully explained to us. We were given excellent recommendations for dinner which we enjoyed. Our room was pleasantly and comfortably appointed. So enjoyed our breakfast with other guests in the charming breakfast room . Breakfast was great. Would highly recommend Designer Cottage! Thanks to Chet and colleagues for their gracious hospitality.

Wonderful place to stay”
We stayed here only one night but it was very comfortable and cute. The room was warm and there was also an electric blanket provided which we didn't need to use. We were able to keep our food in the full size fridge and use the kettle in the morning. There was coffee and tea provided. This is a heritage house that has been restored. One of the owners let us know that the beautiful wooden section on the bathroom wall is some of the original. There are secure locks on the doors and free street parking out front. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

Great hosts, cozy and clean”
Thoughtful details, delicious breakfast, kind and very knowledgable hosts. They made us feel very welcome and answered our questions about the city and New Zealand. Loved eating local breakfast and getting to mingle with other guests. Steve makes some amazing poached eggs! Try Hell pizza just down the street, it rocks.

A nice base to the explore”
The designer cottages were a lovely base for our adventures in Christchurch. The room was lovely, the hosts friendly and entertaining at breakfast (so many stories!) and the location may not be in the city centre but it's an interesting area in CHC.

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.

Lovely and calm situation, Very friendly Owner,
We arrived in the afternoon finding a note on the door for us how to contact the owner, very nice room, lovely cottage, got there by bus from the Airport, very easy and close to the bus stop. In the morning nice breakfast in the garden, very friendly. It was like living at a friends house and not in a B&B. But if you wouldn't want to be in contact with other guests there is enough place for everybody.

Trendy Comfortable Cottages”
Location, Fun Cottages
Our initial thoughts on arriving were that we were long way from city centre - but 10 min walk and we were right in city centre - so location great and nice and quiet at night. Cottage nicely furnished with period pieces - we had 2 bed cottage which was bit big for just 2 of us - but would be great if we had others or kids as well. On another front it is very sobering to see the devastation and hardship everyone in Christchurch have experienced - so please visit the city and spend some money in the city.

grounds lovely, and landscaping interesting , staff friendly, and helpful, when around.
Myself and others I spoke to were not informed we were sharing a bathroom, and kitchen. we would have expected to be informed of this, and at least charged accordingly. we were charged top price for shared bathroom, and kitchen not good. enough for the money. At my earlier accdn, I had fully self sufficient room, and a cooked breakfast included in the price.

Chet - the owner, the room the garden and surrounds
The stay at Designer Cottages is a great experience. The whole complex is individual and special with each cottage totally different but very thoughtfully and tastefully decorated.Our room was very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Chet is friendly and charming. He makes each guest feel very welcome and safe. The breakfast is a must as apart from having a great start to the day it is an opportunity to meet other travellers and enjoy Chet's fascinating company. We would highly recommend staying at Designer Cottages.
