An absolutely fabulous place to stay. It was peaceful and quiet in a lovely part of the city of Christchurch set in the most beautiful garden. The bed was super comfy. Great shower and super clean.Breakfast with our host was great, nice informal chat and delicious food. We recommend and we will be back.

Very spacious, clean, comfortable room with a comfy bed. The bathroom is nice and exceptionally clean. Gaye had yummy cookies waiting for us when we arrived and a delicious breakfast for us in the morning. She's an outstanding host!

t was a fantastic first b&b experience. Gaye has set the bar high.

The breakfast Gaye prepared for me was perfect for my special dietary needs. I especially appreciate that she took time to write out how she makes her homemade yogurt. I love how clean everything was and the beautiful homemade shortbread was a stunning touch.

Really great to have stayed with Gaye. The best stay we had in 4 weeks in New Zealand

Gaye is a super hostess. Our room was part of the bungalow and with separate access. Gaye greeted us at the station and also had time to take us to the airport. Breakfast was superb. Good storage room for cases part of our room. Bus stop almost outside the property.

Overall a comfortable stay and conveniently located to the main sights in Christchurch

The B & B was centrally located, and easy to access with off street parking. The room was spacious and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities were included. Our room looked out onto a lovely garden area and we had our own private entrance. The breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. Our host was friendly and welcoming.

Clean comfortable stay with an amazing host!

Gaye and family were an amazing host! They were so welcoming and thoughtful throughout our stay. The night when we were in Christchurch, it was pouring out while we were sightseeing in the city, Gaye even reached out and asked if we needed a ride home! The breakfast was fantastic too! The property was spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed, private access to the room without disturbing the host. The location is great too. It's near all the nice bars and restaurants and a short drive from the city center too! Loved this place and will definitely come back if I have the chance to visit Christchurch again! Thank you!

Very comfortable and lovely accommodations. Would definitely recommend. The Breakfast menu is gourmet and we highly recommend the Eggs Benedict!


Great 3 night stay in Christchurch

Pros: The cooked breakfasts were fabulous

Location: Many restaurants easy walking distance from B&B. A longer walk straight into city center - but very doable.

Clean and comfortable room and bath. Great cooked breakfast - with many choices. Enjoyed amazing vegetable omelet, salmon omelet, and full English breakfast. Host gave great suggestions for restaurants and sight-seeing.

The owner is friendly and inviting, she gives you a large option of breakfasts and is always approachable.
Amazing food comes your way for breakfast.
The room is huge, with a private bathroom and a walking wardrobe.
With a great view and instant access to the wonderful garden.
Within walking distance to both a mall and city central.
Will recommend to all and will be back ourselves.

Very comfortable stay

My wife and I stayed two nights at Garden B & B during a South Island trip. The room is large and very comfortable with its own entrance, and an outdoor area looking out on to a pleasant garden. It is in a good location, easy to get to from the airport and a short bus ride to the CBD. There are good restaurant options a 10 min walk in either direction. Gaye was a gracious host and breakfast was first class. She offered to transport us to the airport which was much appreciated. We plan to stay again on our next visit to a Christchurch.
