It was tricky finding a B and B in New Zealand that could accommodate more than a couple traveling at an affordable price. We found Gingerbread to be very accommodating for my husband, myself and adult daughter. Affordable and comfortable. Hearty breakfast eggs, bacon, tomato, yogurt, fruit.
Spent 3 nights and had a satisfying delicious breakfast. One morning Miki prepared breakfast as early as 6:45 so we could make the alpine train to Greymouth. That is why we stay in B and B's and she helped make our stay most enjoyable.
Located in a residential area so it is quiet at night. If you have a car there are restaurants and city centre close by. We did not find this to be difficult to get around and we are Americans driving on the other side of the street.
Other great reasons to stay here: great value, very clean, sweet dog and delightful helpful host.
Make sure to eat at Tequila mockingbird( out favorite place) and The Bodhi Tree ( 2 nd favorite restaurant ) in Christ church. Call ahead to make a reservation if you wish to sit at a table rather than at the bar or a high top. Yes there are many things to do in Christchurch.
