A further 8 spa studio units are situated in front of the Manor, with 7 chic 3bdrm townhouse apartment accommodation ideal for families and travelling executive groups directly across the road. Situated at 122 Papanui Road, Merivale, Christchurch and reasonably priced, the Manor is in a great location, close to the Merivale village with its premier shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars. We are conveniently close to St Georges & Southern Cross & Nurse Maud Hospitals, St Andrews, Rangi Ruru, St Margaret's and Selwyn House schools.

Wayne and Karen were incredible hosts at Merivale Manor. The fact that this is a family-run hotel made all the difference - it adds a personal touch you just don't get at chain hotels. The rooms are clean and quiet, the bed was beyond comfortable, and its location can't be beat.

We arrived in the evening and once we had our rented car, it was a short and easy drive to Merivale Manor. We were welcomed by Naomi and shown to our room on the first floor of the Manor. I had specifically requested a room towards the back so we were not troubled by street

Hi, do the rooms come with a proper fridge with freezer space?
Hi there, Every room at the Manor has a small fridge as explained by our other guests. If you require freezer space specifically, we can provide that for you - but this won't be in your actual room. The Merivale Apartments however, have a full size fridge/freezer - if you were looking for more space for up to six people. Wayne - Owner

There are small boxes of cereal in your room and we supply fresh milk daily at reception for that and your tea and coffee (also in your room) The bread has aGF variety as well as brown and white.

Hi, Is breakfast complimentary ?
Yes. However it is essentially continental and consisted of some very good homestyle bread for toast, butter, jam and coffee and milk. I am not sure but there may have been some fruit. The coffee was powdered with a counter electric water boiler and fresh whole milk. We were there only briefly because of the travel problems we encountered (6 hours sleep after 37 hours of travel) so it is a little bit of a blur. I definitely remember the bread being homestyle with lots of grains and delicious. The place it self is excellent. Good luck.
