Great facilities, helpful owners, felt like a home away from home.

On arrival, the owner allocated one of the ground level access suites for us instead of the room upstairs. This was very considerate given our luggage. A spacious room with all facilities you'd need for a short stay - including free wifi access!

Good location - close to shops, restaurants and iSite office. Highly recommended!

I stayed at the manor for 3 nights. The hotel was in easy walking distance of the city. The hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful with my tourist questions. Rooms were clean, spacious with a great spa bath!

Stayed in main house which was lovely and quiet, rooms pleasant with all things necessary for cooking a meal. Very generous to have free washing and drying facilities. Easy bus ride into town.

We stayed one night at at Merivale Manor before catching a flight out.

The rooms are great quality, large and bright and well equipped. The staff were very helpful and friendly and a great source of local information. In addition to the milk left in the fridge for our arrival there was also bread, cereals and marmalade etc to prepare yourself a breakfast - a very pleasant addition.

The hotel is in handy area with restaurants within walking distance and shops too.

The only reason we didn't give this hotel an 'excellent' rating is the privacy. The room has big windows which anyone walking/driving towards reception can see straight through and into the rooms. There are curtains however they would benefit from blinds or net curtains to provide privacy without blocking out all the light.

Stayed here for 2 nights, people mentioned how quiet Christchurch was going to be and why were we staying 2 nights? My feeling was and is that the people of Christchurch are trying to re build their business and deserve to be helped. I was glad we did stay 2 nights, we went into the town and yes a lot of the streets are closed due to unsafe buildings. Some of the shops and restaurants are the same as when the quake hit. However we were very impressed with the temporary units being used to keep the shops trading and even a temporary bank!
We arrived in the early hours of the morning so Mike had left basic provisions which was a nice touch. Support the people of Christchurch.

Room Tip: Good location
