We chose this Bed and Breakfast for its proximity to our rv rental and airport location. Turns out we actually could easily walk to the rental places. The B&B is a wonderful place to stay: an all around beautiful house and garden with plenty of little touches to make it special. Thank you to our host for making our final day in NZ even better.

I stayed at St James B&B for a total of 4, non consecutive, nights during my stay in New Zealand and I can highly recommend it! Each room is individually decorated and has a personal touch to it. Finding home made cookies and muffins in the room was very nice! I was very impressed by the breakfast! Fresh brewed coffee, cereal, free range eggs, fresh rolls, hash browns to name a few things that was offered. You can really tell that Margaret makes an effort to make every guest feel welcome! The location is only a short drive from the airport and is not far from the International Antarctic Centre either. St James B&B will for sure be my first stop when I return to Christchurch and New Zealand.

Stayed at St James briefly for one night on a Christchurch stop over at the end of a long trip and we were so glad we did. Margaret is a welcoming and kind host who is able to manage hospitality with privacy perfectly.
Our balcony room was gorgeous, and the shared bathroom no issue. The entire property is beautiful and very peaceful. Margaret even made us a breakfast to go for an early flight which made our morning much more bearable!
Thanks for a great stay, we will be back for longer!

Room Tip: Balcony room was beautiful overlooking gardens but shared bathroom.

Close to the airport and only 15-20 min from the town centre.
The facilities were great and Margaret was the perfect host.
We're a bit hesitant of pet friendly establishments due to past exposure, but Margaret's dog and cat should be on the payroll. Clean, well behaved and making us feel welcome at all times.

Hello there and thank you so much for taking the time to review. I am so glad to hear that Spoodie and Puss Puss made you welcome. They certainly are characters but I do ensure they are not a nuisance to guests at the same time! I am glad you enjoyed your stay here and certainly look forward to the next time you visit
kind regards

Margaret was so welcoming and the Magnolia room exquisite! What a memorable experience. Perfect in every way followed by a gourmet breakfast...simply amazing.
By far the nicest B and B we've stayed in anywhere.
