Our December 2013 stay at the Garden View B&B in Rolleston, south of Christchurch airport, was a wonderful way to begin our NZ tour. Our hosts, John and Beth, gave us a warm welcome and a personal touch, answering our questions and giving us pointers on what to expect on our travels. When we arrived, Beth had prepared a tasty spread of snacks for us to enjoy on the patio in full view of the bountiful garden. The acre+ garden is a beautiful array of domestic and exotic plants and reflects John's background as a plant scientist and his eye for color, texture and composition. Our room was comfortable and immaculate. In the morning they prepared a hearty breakfast and we embarked on our NZ adventure with warm wishes and glad that we had stopped at the Garden View B&B and met John and Beth.
