Stayed one night after renting a campervan and returning it to Christchurch before changing to a car to head up to North Island. We were able to drop our luggage off at B &B and return van then walk back the short distance to the B&B.
Margaret is a very welcoming host who provided useful information on where to get dinner. We stayed in the Magnolia room which had lovely views over the beautiful garden and was very well appointed. Unfortunately the Alpacas were not around as they were away getting clipped.
The B&B is a short walk from the bus stop where regular buses go into the city centre if you do not have a car. We walked part of the way in for dinner then caught the bus back.
In the morning Margaret provided a very substantial breakfast with plenty of good food to chose from.
