The owners of Merivale Manor could not have been more welcoming and helpful in ensuring our stay was a pleasant experience and comfortable in every way. Well located not far from the city centre we would highly recommend this motel for your stay in Christchurch.

We spent a night in the Manor building itself on arrival in NZ and then had a night in the apartments over the road at the end of the trip. In both cases, we had very comfortable accommodation although the Manor is the more attractive. The staff were all very welcoming. Really enjoyed the fact they provide slices of bread...

We had the use of a large balcony, a small complimentary breakfast was included and there was a free laundry. It was a 20 minute walk into Christchurch-10 minutes of the walk is through the park and a 5...

Bathroom was finished nicely but a touch small. Accommodation was clean and tidy and on site parking available. Room rate per night was reasonable and basic (very basic) breakfast...

Merivale Manor was a delight after an extended drive from Blenheim. The rooms are brilliantly equipped and perfect for tourists to Christchurch. Brian made us most welcome and suggested restaurants close by. It is a twenty minute walk into the city along a road lined with bars, cafes , restaurants and hotels. We would definitely recommend visitors to stay at...

stayed here for 2 nights and the warm welcome was well received after a long drive. Brian could not have been more helpful with restaurant and attraction details. The motel is about a 25 min walk into the city but the bus stop is directly outside. They also offer milk, bread and cereal as a breakfast, not many hotels we...

Good size bathrooms with excellent shower pressure (something I always look forward to!). Breakfast is not provided but there are tea & coffee products in each room as well as packs of cereal. Bread and milk are provided on arrival...
