The Chester Bed & Breakfast Apartment
Ranked #80 of 138 Christchurch B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The rooms were compact but comfortable. Continental breakfasts were provided. The hosts, Jan and Jennifer were eager to help, and did a washer load of washing for us free of charge.The accommodation is convenient for Christchurch and its surroundings. The hosts were very helpful in pointing us to good restaurants. Secure parking was provided, and an electronic key was lent to us to operate the electric gate at th entrance to the property.

Jan and Jenny are the most wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It's a home away from home; and if your home is a haven then you have a good idea of what awaits you at the Chester. Highly recommended.

Jan and Jennifer could not have been more accommodating and helpful as we started our vacation on NZ's Southern Island, and the apartment suite is quite comfortable with a sophisticated decor.

A luxurious bed and breakfast in a nice quiet street in Christchurch. It's a very peaceful location and a lovely stylish building.
Close to most amenities and a short walk to the bus stop.
The hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had initially booked two long weekends for September 2011 at The Chester, for England's originally planned RWC games. Games were switched to Dunedin and Jan, our host, immediately released us from any obligation, which was a generous gesture considering we had reserved the accommodation a year earlier. That seemed totally unfair, so we reached a compromise and we stayed there just one long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Jan & Jennifer were extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable and the eating arrangements suited us very well. The Chester is located close to Christchurch Centre (which is closed, of course) but we found plenty of things to do - Hagley Park, The Avon River walks, Canterbury Museum etc. There are still plenty of restaurants/cafes open close to the centre and we enjoyed some good meals. We were really pleased that we kept Christchurch on our itinerary and we thoroughly recommend The Chester as a convenient, comfortable and friendly place to stay. Good Luck Christchurch!

we past our last night in New Zealand in this lovely appartment easy to find and a 10-minute walk from downtown of christchurch. The hosts are hospitable and very good advice to find the rental car , petrol station and to go to the airport before leaving new zealand.

We past a good night and have a good breakfast even if we would have liked to take it with our guests to discuss with them a little more.

Self-contained B and B accommodation on quiet street within walking distance of central Christchurch. Continental breakfast is brought to your room or left in fridge for you to have at your leisure. Large, clean room and pleasant and helpful owners. Eating places nearby without need to go into Christchurch.
