“Quality Accommodation”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We stayed in an aptly named superior spa studio. The furnishing was of a high standard, with the bathroom being fitted out to a five star level. The unit was spotless.The double glazed windows kept the road noise to a minimum.

The service was friendly and efficient.

The motel is a $30 taxi ride from the airport and is located very near to shops, restaurants and cafes.

After a late bus ride arriving into Christchurch and seeing nothing but no vacancy lights on, and talking to multiple other hotel / hostel desks we ended up here. Samantha was pleased to help us call around even though there was NOTHING left in Christchurch, when the other desks just said "sorry we don't have anything" and that was it. With no where to stay and nothing available she was willing to put us up in a room that wasn't for rent. Our night quickly went from what would have been BAD, to being the best night we had in NZ. The room was still loads better than any we stayed in our whole two weeks in the country. Her and Michael offered breakfast and coffee and even gave as a ride to the airport in the morning! Thanks Samantha and Michael, you made our day for sure! Beautiful Place and a great location for tourism.

We arrived in christchchurch late Friday afternoon and cruised up and down Papanui Street looking for suitable accomodation. Not only was the Merivale Manor the cheapest on offer (the only room available was $105) it was by far the nicest. The room had heaps of character, was clean and had an amazing shower. We were provided free of charge toast, cereal and milk for breakfast and we also washed and dried all our clothes for no additional cost. The staff could not have been more accomodating, even delivering us the morning paper. We could not have been happier - we have stayed in 3 different hotels in Christchurch (some ranked higher than this one) but none of them compared to Merivale Manor. Wouldn't stay anywhere else, will definitely return.

Great facilities, helpful owners, felt like a home away from home.

On arrival, the owner allocated one of the ground level access suites for us instead of the room upstairs. This was very considerate given our luggage. A spacious room with all facilities you'd need for a short stay - including free wifi access!

Good location - close to shops, restaurants and iSite office. Highly recommended!

I stayed at the manor for 3 nights. The hotel was in easy walking distance of the city. The hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful with my tourist questions. Rooms were clean, spacious with a great spa bath!
