From the moment of check-in Warren and Gwyneth made us feel like old friends and the customer service stayed that way the whole time. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a front room of the property room, which was immaculate, modern and tasteful. We did not find the traffic to be a problem. The location is fantastic, with...

This place is well appointed and the hosts are very nice and helpful, but if you have one of the new rooms in the front rather than in the old house in the picture, you are very close to a busy road and there is a lot of traffic noise. So it's a good place to stay if you don't...

We stayed here in a three bedroom apartment - 6 people and a baby - me, my husband and our 7 month old, my husbands parents, brother and sister and it was actually really comfortable which is saying a lot for that many people living together. The lay out of the apartment was really good with rooms on separate levels...

The motel look old style. However, interior finishing is near new. The room (small Studio) is really small and it located upstairs without lift. You need carry your own luggage via stairs. The motel listed as breakfast included. However, the reception hands over two toasts and a bottle of milk. there are cereal packs in the room. That is it....

2 very tired Aussies arrived early morning & although our room was not available, the lovely Warren let us bed down for a few hours in a vacant 5 star apartment. We were so grateful & would thoroughly recommend Merivale Manor, it certainly was the best accommodation we experienced on our travels. Elaine & Jill

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.

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...
