this was our first trip to New Zealand, and we used the Merivale Manor on 2 seperate occasions both at the start and end of our week in South Island.
We had a wonderful stay on both occassions and the owners of Merivale Manor went out of their way to be as helpful and nice to visitors as we could wish for. It is also very convenient for both central Christchurch and the airport.
We would recomend this hotel to everyone whether on busines or holiday and would definately use it again.

A group of friends stayed for two nights at the Merivale Manor and had a wonderful time...we didn't want to leave. Mine host was great and the rooms were warm and cosy and clean and the beds very comfy. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The two bedroomed apartment in the Manor was wonderful. The bedrooms were large and the separate lo...

I know its kinda late to provide review but this place was one of the best place that we stayed in Christchurch for such value of the money. We arrived late night and arrangement was done perfectly as have been communicated earlier(via email). Room was very clean, clean bathrooms, comfy bed. Best place to stay in Christchurch.

We stayed at the Merivale Manor 2 nights in April. It was a wonderful experience. The room was fantastic, great shower, good continental breakfast, extremely clean. Very good location for restaurants and convenient to downtown as well as the botanical gardens. The owners were very nice and quite helpful in all respects.

We stayed here twice during a recent visit to the South Island and loved it. The building has so much character, very clean, nice high ceilings and great fit-out. During our 10-day trip around the South Island this was the only motel that offered free unlimited internet....this was also the motel that far and away offered the nicest complimentary breakfast fixings. I wouldn't say it was a full breakfast, because it's not, but they made an effort with cereal, toast and milk which is enough to fill your belly until you get out and about, compared to some other places that would literally just hand you a small half-pint bottle of milk.

The location is good too. Only about 20 mins drive from the airport and very close to the heart of the city and the huge park/botanical gardens. There is a small shopping strip about 5 mins walk away, so everything is very convenient. We didn't explore Christchurch too much but as it was our gateway to the South Island, we stayed at this motel on the first and last days of our trip. It was by far our favorite motel throughout the trip (and all of the motels that we stayed at were within a $20-$30 price range of each other).

Room Tip: The family room upstairs (215 I believe) was very nice. It's a studio, so prepare to live, cook...

I didn't have much expectations when this motel was listed within my budget. We paid 145 NZD for the superior spa room and was thoroughly impressed when we arrived at our room. It was extremely clean, spacious and modern. The kitchen had granite benchtop, microwave, toaster etc. and the spa with jacuzzi was wonderful. I normally don't trust the bath in the hotel bathroom, but this time we had to try it. Free bread, milk, jams and cereal (and newspaper if you'd like) is a nice touch. It had nice big TV and stereo too, and a reverse cycle aircon. There's free wi-fi accessible from the room. Also within walking distance to Merivale shopping mall and restaurants. We arrived on Sunday night and there was nothing to do in Christchurch, but stayed in very comfortably.
