“Wonderful”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Stayed June 14th thru 18th. Purpose built B and B. Only three rooms. Stayed in the garden room. Wonderful and charming. Bathroom was next to the room but only for the room occupants, was as large as the bedroom and marvelous. Close to Cristchurch, downtown, and the train station. Dennis makes four great breakfasts which I tried all of them.

Our stay at Lilac Rose was everything we could have wished for. Dennis and Pam are gracious and welcoming, and the Garden Room in which we stayed was beautifully clean and tastefully decorated. There was a selection of teas in the room, along with a kettle for hot water, which was a lovely touch, especially since we stayed here during winter. The bathroom was large, with double sinks and underfloor heating, which was such a treat! The luxurious toiletries provided - all New Zealand-made - also took our stay another notch up. When we awoke the next morning after a great sleep, we were treated to a delicious breakfast - there was a superb continental spread to start off with, and Dennis whipped up a scrumptious egg breakfast for each of us. What we found particularly enjoyable was the lovely chat we had with Pam and Dennis during breakfast - they are vivacious and warm, and made us feel just like friends. We would return without hesitation to Lilac Rose!

I was barely at Lilac Rose for 12 hours but thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This is a beautiful house loaded with character. I stayed in the Garden Room which was gorgeous and comfy....I especially liked the underfloor heating in the bathroom! Dennis & Pam are friendly and welcoming and Dennis makes a mean eggs bene! I hope I get the opportunity to stay again.

Four of us stayed here for one night at the beginning of March 2014. We were welcomed with tea/coffee and home-made cookies and were made to feel immediately at home in their wonderful house.
Although Lilac Rose is on a busy road, the house itself is very quiet and our room was at the back.
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms have gorgeous toiletries for your use and the garden is a lovely place to sit and read - not forgetting the hot tub which is available for guests' use.
The breakfast (Eggs Benedict) was absolutely delicious with home-made Hollandaise Sauce as well.
Pam and Dennis are excellent hosts - extremely friendly and helpful, making sure all your needs are catered for.
Like so many others, we all fell in love with their Golden Retriever Maddie - she is so soft and friendly and very well behaved.
We would highly recommend the Lilac Rose B&B if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Christchurch.

Lovely house. Comfortable rooms and welcoming, genuine hosts.Dennis gave us tea and a chat on arrival and told us where to find a good evening meal. Really couldn't ask for more but we got it in a wonderful breakfast. We just felt like we were friends who'd been invited to stay. What's better than that?

Pam and Denis were absolutely wonderful hosts and have the most beautiful home.
The house is stunning and despite being on a busy road it is incredibly quiet. We stayed in the Attic Room and slept very peacefully. The shower was especially fantastic and I could have stayed in there all day!
Breakfast was a fantastic feast, with both a continental and cooked breakfast offered. Denis's tomato sauce is definitely recommended.
My personal highlight has to be the roaring fire in the lounge room, I spent a very comfortable and happy evening there enjoying the company of their golden retriever.
It genuinely felt as if we were house guests in their home rather than paying customers. Denis helped us with our bags while Pam equipped us with maps and advice about Christchurch.
I am definitely planning on coming back to the Lilac Rose and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys that little bit of luxury.

We stayed with Pam & Dennis in their beautiful home for 1 night before collecting our camper.

We loved the double attic room which had a very comfy bed and a lovely clean bathroom (not en suite but for our sole use).

Dennis cooked a mean breakfast and their beautiful Golden Retriever added a relaxed charm - I could have taken her with us!! :-)

We wish we had stayed longer but would highly recommend Lilac Rose to everyone and we would not hesitate to stay again if we were in town.
