Thank you so much Carmel for a wonderful, homely stay! The home baked goods were a real treat and even though it was only a night, we felt so rested after a nice hot spa and wonderful relaxed evening. Just a little treasure amongst a stunning setting and the chalet was so warm and romantic! A real treat!

Room Tip: The stand alone chalet is a great romantic getaway!

When my partner and I, who are currently living three and a half hours apart, decided neither of us felt like travelling the whole distance for the weekend, we thought Geraldine would be a good place to meet in the middle. Nestled in a stunning setting, the cottage at Stonebridge was a warm and beautiful place to stay, not to mention a delicious breakfast! Topped off by a lovely walk around the gardens with Carmel in the morning. A wonderful experience for our first time staying in a B&B, would thoroughly recommend to all.

Thank you for your kind words and so pleased you enjoyed your first experience of a B&B - a home away from home with someone else making you breakfast.

We managed to find the place in the dark and boy, it was a beautiful homestay. Thanks to Carmel for the lovely dinner and breakfast. It was a beautiful premise that we walked around the next morning. Thanks Carmel and Ferg for the great stopover at Geraldine! Good choice if you are heading from Christchurch towards Lake Tekapo and beyond.

After airport delays, a full days travelling, driving through rain and in the dark we arrived at Stonebridge to find a wedding in full swing, no sign of an office or "Reception" and no room due to a double booking. The proprietor did find us accommodation at a nearby property however after blaming everyone and everything but herself. Not a terrific experience.

Yes, it was a shock to me as well especially with the journey you had gone through to get here and presumed the guests in the live booking system were from invited guests from the wedding. We are very grateful for our neighbour to have vacancies for you.

It can be assured it won't happen again as all wedding booking accommodation will be blocked and entered by ourselves in future. This will block any live bookings like yours getting through.

Our sincere apologies again and trust the rest of your stay in New Zealand were pleasant ones.

Our daughter was married at Stonebridge.
Everything about the wedding was magical and because of the friendly professional staff, making prior arrangements was so easy. The ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening ceilidh just happened so effortlessly, leaving the wedding party stress free.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough, nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious.
The location suited and impressed our guest list of international and local (NZ) visitors and everyone was made welcome. The gardens are beautiful ! A green oasis in our dry Canterbury Plains.
From some of the subsequent comments it was the best wedding ever attended and the most enjoyable.
Thank you Carmel and your team.

Thank you for the wonderful experience you gave us all. Hearing all those bagpipes going was amazing along with everything else about the wedding. It will be one memory that will last a very long time not only for myself but also for the staff.

We stayed one night and were made to feel so welcome staff could not do enough for us.
The room was wonderful and breakfast was delicious such a peaceful place.
I could not fault the StoneBridge and would to tell all our friends to visit if they want a perfect stay.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and also thank you for your pure gold entertainment throughout the night. You had all the guests in the palm of your hand as you sang and strummed your guitar and gave 150% of yourself. There are not many entertainers that can have the audience so enthralled they are clapping while they are dancing plus sitting at their tables and then still finish off with more clapping at the end of each piece of music you played. Congratulations! We will certainly hope more hosts choose you for their event as you are worth every cent and we can look forward to you and your wife staying again.

Our stay there was a beautiful one. Such a big garden and a nice and friendly atmosphere made our day out there a unique one - you won't be able to find such a great place in the nearer surroundings! Breakfast was really good, and Carmel & Ferg did the rest to let us feel like home!
