Staff were very welcoming when we first arrived after a long journey from the UK. Room was very comfortable and convenient for shopping and travel into Christchurch and the surrounding area. One small criticism was the size of the kitchen area which was cramped.

If you.need a comfortable bed and a nice, easy walk to some of the best restaurants and bars Christchurch has to offer, this is the place to go! The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff is very friendly and considerate. The Kauri is a great stay for business or otherwise.

Helen & her husband are excellent hosts and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. However, describing a room as "executive" is a bit misleading as it was far too small for our suitcases, felt claustrophobic & the spa bath took up too much space in the bathroom. However, Helen was able to upgrade us to an...

On a busy street, but didn't hear much noise from our room. Ask for a bigger room, ours was pretty tight, but there are larger ones available. Host was very friendly and helpful, even did my laundry for me! I supposed you could walk to downtown, but a bit far. However, be sure to check out the Riccarton House a...

Very friendly staff and clean room. Room included a spa bath and kitchen. Room was quite small with limited space for our suitcases, but was really nice other than that. Also bed was not very comfortable - a little too hard.

Very clean with good quality linens. Double glazing ensures no noise issues from Riccarton mall across road. Welcomed with muffins in unit. Greatly appreciated willingness of proprietors to change bookings at last minute during a very busy time period. Highly recommend.

Several members of my group stayed here. The rooms were very clean and everything was in good condition. The owners were very nice and helpful - they even washed a load of clothes for one of us. In the room you can hear noise from the busy Riccarton Rd, but this would be true for any establishment along Riccarton.

Friendly greeting, nicely appointed rooms. Extremely clean, reasonably comfortable bed. Only slight negative was street traffic noise able to be heard through door. Convenient access to Christchurch city as well as to airport and main roads out of the city.
