Reasonable rates. Quite spacious. Comfortable beds. Clean room. Very accommodating hosts. Great location, within walking distance to a lovely Vietnamese restaurant. Nice to have a kitchen so we could make our own breakfast.

We had a long drive up to Christchurch travelling overnight and the owners were happy to accomodate our early arrival on the day (prior to the usual check in time?) so we could drop off groceries and freshen up prior to our appointments in Christchurch....More

Lovely host, clean unit and well priced. Across the road from dairy and takeaway shops. Not far from the city and Riccarton Shops. Rented a 2 bedroom which suited as I didn't have to hear my mate sore - Will be back

Room was comfy clean & warm. Kitchen facilities & everything you need for a short stay. Close enough to town & a 5min drive to Horncastle Arena. Information about local sites & restaurants. Bed was good, unit needed a wee bit of TLC.
