We booked Purple-der House because of its proximity to the airport, as we had an early morning flight. The location is therefore perfect for the airport, but it's not very close to anything else - unless one has a car.
We were upgraded to a better room, so we ended up having a bathroom inside the room, which was a nice surprise (having stayed at hostels for the rest of our stay in NZ). There is a kitchen right across the room with a fridge, a stove and lots of dishes, so it's possible to cook and store food.
The room was very spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom was clean, and the shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The bed was super comfy (it was hard to get up in the morning). The room also had a big TV with what seemed to be lots of channels (I'm unfamiliar with NZ cable).
The service at the House was very good, our hosts were nice and courteous. Overall, I'd highly recommend this place for its cleanliness, affordability and proximity to the airport.

Clean, friendly, well equipped, convenient for New Brighton and it's cool quirky bars, loved it. Owner ver helpful room was amazing, liked New Brighton full of character. Purple Der guest house totally recommended. Also not too far out of town only 15 mins to get back into Christchurch so all in all a great place

This was a lovely haven for us in the suburb of New Brighton. We were greeted warmly by Kim the owner and allowed into our room early as it was already ready for us! This was great as we were tired and had been carrying heavy rucksacks - definitely appreciated.

The rooms and facilities are excellently maintained all really clean with lots of special touches that make all the difference. Close to the beach and to the centre of New Brighton where there are places to eat drink and relax.

We found this accommodation to be excellent value for money and it is easy to see that the pride Kim takes in the place pays off. Would definitely stay again

Kim was very friendly and although the check-in was a bit in limbo in the front foyer he was quick and organized! The room was very homey, warm and Kim went as far as personally walking us to the room to show how everything worked. It was obvious that Kim's attention to detail and hard work is what keeps the place going - it was nice to support a small local business.

A great place to stay & Kim (the owner) was very friendly, patient & went out of his way to ensure my stay was delightful.
The bedrooms were very clean & comfortable.
They made my holiday the best in a long time & I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here & would recommend this place to anyone visiting Christchurch.
