What a brillian experience!”

The luxurious facilities, the location and the welcome from the host.

We were delighted with the standard of the accommodation at Merivale Manor, which was extremely comfortable and very tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and equipped. The welcome we received from the hosts was very warm and helpful and the hotel is situated in a perfect location: close enough to the centre of Christchurch to walk and surrounded by lots of really good eating options. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough and would love the opportunity to go back any time!

As an introduction to my first NZ trip,my 2 day stay at Merivale Manor was an excellent choice. From the minute I arrived,I was made to feel very welcome by the staff and was very comfortable in my studio room. I was surprised at the spaciousness of the room& bathroom & it was very well equipped with soft bedding& towels and such a comfy bed!Nothing was too much trouble for the staff,they were happy to give excellent tourist advice,such as the local bus service,way into the city and good eating places nearby.

Great place to stay.”

The owners were very helpful. The room was very comfortable. Well located for access to the city and local restaurants.

We had a great stay at Merivale Manor. The room was spotless and the owners obviously pay great attention to detail. Whilst it is very well located it is on a busy road, so I would suggest asking for a room away from the road. Having said that the windows are double glazed so even though we were near the road the traffic noise didn't disturb us. A great place to stay!

Very nice rooms”

Merivale Manor had all the amenities. Very clean and large bathroom. I got a couple of pieces of fresh toast for breakfast and fresh milk. There is also a selection of breakfast cereals to choose from and tea and coffee in the kitchen. If you are staying in the rooms closer to the main street, I suggest bringing ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as you do hear the traffic. It's about a 30 minute walk from the city centre though there is a bus stop near by if you are not driving. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming, It was very easy to find from the airport and would have been great to hop on a bus and going to the city with bus stops right outside. Merivale mall and shops were just down the road. I loved staying in the Farr suite of the old house, it was well appointed and the reading nook was lovely - shame I didn't have longer!

Good service and great location! Very clean room and even thou our room is next to the street, place is still quiet. We forgot to inform the hotel that we will arrive late, called the office at 8:30PM and they said that they've been waiting for us for hours. We kept them late and still the reception was great. We forgot our jackets when we left and glad that they kept it (1 week) until we went back to Christchurch. Sadly, there was no room available when we came back, would have loved to stay there again.
