We had a great stay at the Designer cottage in Christchurch. The room was cute, clean, and the friendly hosts. We are from Wellington and just stayed a night. The location was convenient near the shops, cafes, and restaurants. We will come back.:)

About
Description
Christchurch B&B Designer Cottage was a sailors' retreat in the 70s and is located in peaceful surroundings just off Colombo Street near the shops and opposite Sydenham Park. The walk to the city More centre from the cottage will give you the chance to admire many listed heritage buildings on Colombo Street. We offer a variety of rooms, which are all tastefully decorated, including share facilities, private room with en-suite and a self-contained cottage. Less
