Cute Designer Cottage

Posted Jan 29, 2018
Cons: Expand and improve the bath room.
It was a very enjoyable stay. The hosts were exceptionally hospitable. The cottage was old fashion antique-ish but very comfortable, especially the beds. The lanai in the back was beautiful, quite and peaceful. Perfect place to relax. The place was a charm.

A B&B that lives up to it's name! The Designer Cottage is truly a remarkable place to stay. After having received a very warm welcome, we immediately felt at home. Everything was just perfect: the hosts, the room, the breakfast, the location ... Thank you very much for taking all your time to explain in detail where to go and what to do in the area! We (almost) did it all and enjoyed every single recommendation! :-) Specifically where to go for great food ;-) Super highly recommended!

A comfortable stay with great hosts

We felt very at ease and enjoyed the breakfasts very much. This is in a central spot and being able to use key-codes to get back into the hotel and our room was very convenient.

Nice B & B

Posted Nov 7, 2017
Pros: Quiet B&B in a quiet street
Cons: Give client the opportunity to have breakfast even if you the owner is not serving it.
Location: N/A
It was a nice B&B though it would be nice to have a limit stay on the one opening window. I had chosen this B&B because it is supposed to include breakfast - even if only continental. However, breakfast was only served from 7.30am and unfortunately I was picked up everyday at 7.15am so therefore I missed out on breakfast. I feel the owners could have asked what I wanted and put out a plate with cereal and 2 slices of bread for toast with gladwrap over both plates so I could have made my own breakfast.

First B&B stay

Posted Oct 20, 2017 on Wotif
Location: Not central Christchurch but 10 easy minutes away. It si on that circle around the centre so driving out to the coast is easy - north, east and south.
I stayed two nights and I couldn't fault the experience.

My daughter and I flew to Christchurch from Auckland and staying here was a last minute decision - one that I was very happy with. We were tired and just wanted a safe, warm place to stay, which is what we got! Complete with lovely staff who welcomed us we recommend this cottage to all.
