We stayed at Finlay Banks b & B for 4 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Fay and Lindsay are the greatest hosts. They welcomed us into their home as if we were family.
We were picked up after arriving by bus to Christchurch and were driven to the train station upon our departure.
The house is so beautiful and gardens spectacular. We had breakfast with them on 2 mornings and dinner as well.
Lindsay and Fay were there to answer any question and pointed out the places to visit.
If you want a most relaxing, wonderful B and B do not hesitate to stay here.

Owner operated B&B's are unique in every way. It was our pleasure to welcome you into our home. We truly appreciate your review and confirmation that we have achieved our goal of operating a relaxed and welcoming B&B. Every guest is special, we enjoyed our dinner and breakfast conservations. Remember it is never goodbye but "farewell until we meet again".

We loved our stay at Finlay Banks for one night when passing through Christchurch so much that we booked 3 nights when we returned the following week. Fay and Lindsay were so welcoming and their home is beautiful. They couldn't do enough for you. Everything was spotlessly clean and the decor and furniture of very high quality. The breakfast was lovely and Fay even offered to give breakfast to our daughter and friend who were staying in a motel in the city. Would not hesitate to return.

As you found one night is not enough, we and our city have so much to offer. The new development happening in Christchurch is exciting and will be well worth returning for.
Thank you for reviewing your stay in our home, it was our pleasure to be your hosts'. We look forward to your next visit.

My wife and I stayed one night of our honeymoon at the Finlay Banks Boutique Bed & Breakfast in March 2016. Lindsay (male) was kind enough to pick us up at the Christchurch train station (at no charge!) and told us a bit about the city while pointing out restaurant options along the way. As we already had supper plans in town, Lindsay called a cab for us (less than 10 minute ride from the center of downtown) and which made the evening very convenient. The next morning, we opted for a prepared breakfast where Fay cooked a wonderful eggs benedict with farm fresh eggs! We were only at Finlay Banks for about 15 hours but very much enjoyed it.

We were welcomed by our very friendly hosts and had a nice room. We only stayed there for one night to fly out the next day and so I wanted to do an early check-in and asked the hosts for a computer and printer, which was no problem at all. The bed and breakfast is only a 5 minute walk away from a small shopping centre with 3 restaurants/bars. We had a very nice meal at the pub.

Our close proximity to a very well serviced shopping mall works well for our guests. With a choice of restaurants, retail shopping, banks and movie theatres only a five minute walk from our door our guests' can relax and leave the car parked up.Thank you for your review, perhaps next time you will be able to stay for longer.
