The Villa was very quaint and comfortable! The hostess at the time we were there (in November), Nonni, was extremely friendly and accomodating. She was also very helpful in providing suggestions to eat and explore around Christchurch and the surrounding areas that were not impacted by the earthquake.
The food was delicious and nutritious. The cheese selection was great, though a larger warm food selection would've been even more ideal!
We stayed in Room No 1, which was very spacious though it was the furthest from the dining / internet area. The fireplace and heater provided sufficient heat, and the washroom was very clean and neat (the shower is also spacious). Laundry service provided by the B&B was also very convenient as we had travelled for a week already.
Be warned that the Villa is close to the city center core which was heavily impacted by the earthquake, so getting to the hotel with your GPS may be tricky due to blocked roads nearby. The location is ideal otherwise. It is also very close to South Hagley Park, which is also very ideal for runs and walks.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay!
