“This is it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

This was the last of 5 locations I stayed at in NZ recently, and was easily the best. The accomadation is spotless, the location gives easy access to Christchurch and yet is an oasis within itself. The breakfast was perfect.... and the service from Kim & John is first class. I really cannot fault it at all. I found this accomadation by chance using Wotif.com and have no affiiation at all with the owners, but have no hesitation in recommending it to all travellers!

A regular visitor to Christchurch for business, I have found it difficult to find quality accomodation in the city. At only 12 kms from the city (with the option of pickup and dropoff) makes Sturat Manor an excellent choice. The accomodation is outstanding and so much better than any hotel. The service is exceptional - personal, but without obligation. The meals are superb, with exciting menus, freshest ingedients, and large helpings. The rooms, the gardens and the thoughful care of John & Kim make Stuart Manor the perfect place to chill out after a busy day.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent.

We ended up booking a room at Stuart Manor quite by chance, but are so glad we did. A gorgeous old homestead, beautifully renovated, and the hospitality was wonderful! Very friendly hosts, food was superb! We will definitely be back!

I was lucky enough to find Stuart Manor B & B. The owners John and Kim went above and beyond with their hospitality. I fully recommend this place when staying in Christchurch. They were so welcoming that I didn't want to leave!

By sheer chance I ended up at Stuart Manor (a referral from a motel that was fully booked put me on to John and Kim), this is when fate intervens and its the best thing that happens!!!!!!!! From the first moment I arrived in Christchurch everyone working at Stuart Manor made my stay enjoyable, entertaining, relaxing, they made me feel so welcome and went out of their way to ensure I had a memorable and fantastic weekend....Big thank you to Ray, Jan, John and Kim. The food was DEVINE, the company fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and it was the BEST $169 I have ever spent on accomodation. Thanks so much, I will DEFINITELY be back :) Tarnz xx

The house is beautiful, John is a gem, the food was wonderful, the wine was aplenty, and we slept soundly. John and Kim offered to drive us at 4:30am to our hot air balloon ride pickup spot, which is over and above what they needed to do. The ride got cancelled, but the offer was still greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Stuart Manor!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Akorora Room which was very nice. The bathroom was wonderful.
