The description 'motel' has a different connotation where I come from so I had some misgivings about booking here at the price quoted. But it was worth the money and an ideal base, not too far out of town, when the city itself is still a bit of a bomb site after e earthquake. Having the kitchenette and the provision...

We stay here for 2 nights when we arrived in Christchurch and were totally surprised at how beautiful this property is. Warren and Gwyneth were so friendly and helpful and made us feel at home immediately. The bed was so comfortable - we had the best nights sleep and we had every convenience we needed. We were walking distance to...

Absolutely loved staying at the Merivale Manor. Warren and Gwenyth were the consummate hosts making us feel very welcome. The rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable! The Manor is located within walking distance to many good pubs and restaurants. They suggested the Brewer's Arms for dinner where you can cook on a hot stone and it was excellent!! We...

Firstly, I agree with other reviewers that the nicest rooms are those that are in the main house. They are back off of the road, have high ceilings and are just marvelously furnished. Ours was in the back of the house, the Farr Suite, and the king bed was super comfy, the room was quiet even with the windows open...

Christchurch's Merivale Manor Bed and Breakfast, like Timaru's Glendeer Bed and Breakfast are both a notch above the average with a sense of quiet elegance and hospitable hosts. The nightly rate is comparatively high when you consider that a cooked breakfast is not included. I would recommend staying at Merivale Manor, it is immaculate with beautifully maintained gardens within walking...

This is an excellent place walking distance to restaurants. Beautifully done 2 bedroom apartment with all the facilities we needed. It was a sad family occasion for a funeral visit but the hotel did everything they could to help us and support our family visit. Absolutely recommend

Between May 2013 and August 2015, I travelled to Christchurch for business at first every week, and later fortnightly. I initially booked accommodation across four different motels to see where the most comfortable lodgings could be found. After trialling four providers, one was clearly heads and shoulders above all other options and Merivale Manor truly became my ‘home away from...

Warren and Gwyneth are so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk into reception. Merivale Manor is beautiful, with perfectly maintained gardens and a beautifully renovated old house in the middle. If you get the chance to stay in the house - jump at it. It is a bit further back from the road and has a lovely feel...

always well looked after, rooms spotless, well appointed and very comfortable. Location is also very convenient to the CBD along with great restaurants. nothing is too much trouble and the style of the manor house really sets it apart

A very good location to walk into the CBD and very close to the Merival shopping strip. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and the motel units very well equipped. Christchurch needs a long time to recover from the Earthquake and every support should be given.
