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.

I've been there just for one night with my family. But it was a good and quiet night. Very clean, comfortable place and easy to get to the airport. Margaret greeted us personally, introduced us to the room very kindly and carefully. I do recommend that bed and breakfast in Christchurch.

We flew into Christchurch late in the day and were more than pleased with the accommmodations at the St. James B&B. Margaret was gone, but the key to the stables was there for us, and we settled in easily. The unit was attractively decorated and impeccably clean. Margaret had provided a lovely breakfast pie, bread for toasting, jams, fruit, ramen noodles, bars, orange juice and milk, cereals and coffee. The unit was a charming apartment only a short walk away from the sweet Alpacas. I couldn't recommend this B&B more highly, and it's only a kilometer away from the airport, easy walking distance. How I wish we could have gotten a room there for our return flight, but it was not to be.

Stayed: January 2017

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days and absolutely loved it. We tried to change or plans to stay longer. The owner is a lovely lady who knows how to make you feel welcomed. The location is very relaxing even though the airport is very close. A lot of thought was put into the design of making guest feel comfortable. The decor is warm and cozy. The bathroom has a shower/tub room and a separate toilet or water closet. There is also a cottage that is completely self contained. She has the sweetest pets which only add to the warmth of the location. Beautiful garden. Great place for a wedding or a small family reunion. We look forward to returning someday.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed nice. Ours had a balcony.

We stayed one night. Chose this Bed & Breakfast because it was close to the airport. We had traveled all over New Zealand for 24 days. It was nice to relax in this beautiful home.
We had the lovely balcony room with a queen size bed. Gorgeous home & grounds with roses and flowers. Margaret is a wonderful hostess, breakfast was french toast and assortment of fruit, there was yogurt and cereal, juice and homemade muffins. The home was decorated for Christmas. We were there on December 12th. Highly recommend St James Bed & Breakfast we had a great stay!!!!

Room Tip: There are several different size rooms some on ground level and several upstairs.
