“Wonderful B&B Accommodation in Christchurch”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

We stayed at Fendalton House during the last leg of our trip to New Zealand. Pam greeted us and offered wine. We had just arrived from the TranzAlpine train. She recommended a good variety of restaurants for dinner. Fendalton House is only a 10 minute walk away from Riccarton, where you can find bars, restaurants, and entertainment. The breakfast provided the next day was spectacular. In addition to yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, coffee, and juice, she also cooked French toast and an omelette with herbs snipped from the backyard garden. We only had a few hours to spend in Christchurch, and Pam helped us plan an itinerary to make the most of our visit. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention that she helped us get to the airport on time. We underestimated our time walking back to Fendalton, where a cab was waiting for us. We called her to let her know, and she came to pick us up! Now, I have been to a fair share of B&Bs, but this is the first time I have received such a level of service. Thank you Pam! We hope to come back for a longer stay in the future.

Our final destination after travelling through New Zealand was Fendaton House, where we enjoyed the hospitality of a welcoming host, Pam. The room and ensuite was extremely well appointed and very comfortable, with complimentary Port and Sherry. The breakfasts were outstanding with a hearty and wholesome selection of hot and cold, who needed lunch?!
Pam had a wealth of local knowledge to impart to her guests as well as offering excellent recommendations for dining out.
Nothing was too much trouble for our convivial host. We would have no hesitation recommending Fendalton House to anyone who should find themselves in Christchurch. We hope that we will be fortunate enough to return one day.

Thank you Pam for looking after us so well and helping to make our time in Christchurch so special. The rooms so comfortable and the breakfasts unforgettable. Just to prove the point to our friends we have a photo of the breakfast table and of the waffles! Definitely recommend Fendalton House to anyone visiting Christchurch.

Pam is a wonderful hostess, providing not only very comfortable and quiet accommodation with excellent breakfasts, but also very interesting to talk with. The complimentary sherry and port in the room is an additional treat! We will stay again if we are back in Christchurch.

New Zealand is full of high standard B&Bs. FendaltonHouse is one of them. What sets it apart is the host. There are people with whom you feel at home at once and you are said when parting - even though you spent only very little time with them. Pam is one of these persons - and her American pancakes are the best I have ever eaten. I will miss her company and her breakfast when I am back home and I am sorry I could not stay longer with her.

Fendalton House is a comfortable B&B located in a quiet neighborhood halfway between the airport and center city. It is within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. The guest room is small, but nicely appointed and has a very comfortable bed. Pam, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. She cooked a terrific full breakfast in addition to a continental breakfast with great croissants. The house has a lovely garden and off street parking. It's a good choice for being close to Christchurch without the bustle of the city.
