We loved our stay at the Downs. Myron and Alison are wonderful hosts and run the place like professionals. The lounge area is also great and the gardens are beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Alison also gave us some toys for our little one to play with.

Such a friendly warm welcome! Excellent B and B with superb facilities in a beautiful garden - We had a difficult drive at night through rain- what a treat to arrive at this haven of a B and B! It was also a great base for Ashburton Lakes and Peel Forest

Nice quiet B & B, a few minutes drive out of town. Friendly welcome from Alycen & Myron and good, cooked to order, breakfasts. We made good use of the guest lounge and the free laundry too. Thank you both. P & T

We recently visited The Downs and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was beautiful and the gardens were a treat. Many thanks to Alycen and Myron for adding to our New Zealand experience. Nearby Geraldine presented many opportunities for dining out. Roy

It is an amazing B&B with lovely hosts, delicious breakfast and cosy and clean rooms. We've only been there for a short time, so we did't have time to use it, but the garden looked very pretty too, you have a nice view on it from the breakfast room. All in all- fantastic, I would come back any time!!

We were made so welcome at the Downs. It was so much nicer than a motel- a huge bedroom with a large en suite and our own lounge with a small kitchen area . Breakfast was excellent and the view over the garden was a bonus.

The Downs is located just a short drive from the centre of Geraldine & is an excellent place to stay for a first night out of Christchurch or the last night before a flight. The house is spacious with a large garden and the hosts are very welcoming and happy to talk without being pushy. The rooms are spacious, clean,...
