Although we only stayed one night , we were very impressed by the decor and high standard of accommodation. Viv is an excellent hostess, who is both discreet but also clearly enjoys interacting with her guests. We found lots to talk about, which made our all too brief stay memorable. Beautiful bedding, tasteful furnishings, and an excellent en-suite added to... More

We arrived at the B&B in the morning after a 20+ hour journey from the US. We had emailed with Viv earlier and arranged to drop our bags off before the room was ready. On the way to the house, the taxi driver pointed out that it was in a "very posh" part of town. We met Viv and she... More

This house is beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. Vivienne is a lady of refinement who looks after her guests with care and consideration. Her healthy breakfasts are mainly home made and delicious. We ate a takeaway from a local Indian restaurant back in the courtyard garden on our second night there as we had to leave at 4.30am to...

Absolutely the best bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed in. A home away from home, conveniently situated near central Christchurch and Hagley park. Vivienne went the extra mile for us. Her professional manner and attention to detail made this a memorable stopover.

My husband and I spent 3 weeks travelling around the South Island and were looking for somewhere comfortable, clean and relaxing.

Greeting us at the front door like long lost friends, we were welcomed into Vivienne's home after our long drive, beautifully. The house was immaculate, and nothing was too much trouble for her (even trying to hunt down a lemon for a much needed gin and tonic!). Our bedroom was bright and comfortable, ensuring a wonderful night's sleep, ready for... More

We spent only one night at Vivienne's delightful B&B (start of a touring holiday), but would thoroughly recommend this as a base for a longer stay in Christchurch. Excellent facilities, beautifully cooked breakfast, and lovely environment with well-chosen art works. Vivienne was a charming host - helpful and most interesting to talk to. Situated in a beautiful area of Christchurch;... More
