We found Fay and Lindsay wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming and a fund of helpful information. Their B&B, situated in a residential area just a ten-minute bus ride from the centre of Christchurch, is spotlessly clean and comfortable. There is a shopping centre ('The Palms") quite close by, but we didn't have occasion to use it except to identify our...

It is very rewarding to receive such good feed back and to know that you were able to sample and enjoy, such a varied taste of our lovely city. The progress being made here is just amazing and each visit to the city offers something new to see. Our quiet aspect and location so close to the city centre, is...

We travelled around New Zealand for 3 weeks in a mixture of B & B's, Hotels & Homestays & this was by far the best all round accommodation that we stayed in. Fay & Lindsay couldn't have done anymore for us. Their comfortable, welcoming home is spotless and every possible need is catered for. The breakfast was superb and they...

Although our stay was only for 1 night we were made to feel very welcomed. Lindsay and Fay are great hosts. They joined us and the other 2 guests for breakfast and this gave us the opportunity to chat with them which was great....a. ice personal touch. .

We stayed two nights here and Fay and Lindsay are great hosts. The room was beautifully appointed with comfortable bed, seating area and shiny bathroom. There is a lovely airy siting room to have a cup of coffee. Breakfast is a continental delight with lots of choice and if you get a chance do book an evening meal. We did...

When guest's choose to stay for 2 or 3 nights and include the opportunity of an evening meal, when the time comes for them to leave it is like saying,"farewell to good friends'." It was our pleasure to share our home and your company. We enjoyed our many conversations around the table. Thank you for choosing to be a guest...

Recently stayed 4 nights with Faye and Lindsay at Finlay Banks. As many other reviewers have said they are excellent hosts to the extent that they make you feel you are staying in their own home rather than in a Bed and Breakfast establishment. Over the 4 day stay we had numerous chats with them both which gave us information...
