Fantastic B&B! We'll be back!

Quaint B & B
We were only able to stay overnight and missed the breakfast but we were pleased with the location of the Classic Villa. We wanted to walk around downtown Christchurch and this B & B was a perfect location to do that.

Wonderful stay!
We stayed one night while visiting Christchurch. Beautiful old building with original doors and locks. Friendly and helpful service, excellent fast wifi, perks such as free breakfast and soft drinks. It is an old building so it can be noisy when guests are moving luggage on the hardwood floors but that can be expected at a historical building.

Very Good8.0
Charming Bed and breakfast! Great value!
Christchurch is still recovering from the 2011 earthquake and you can see the damage all around you. That being said, The Classic Villa has more going on around it then other parts of the city centre. Would definitely recommend it! Right next to the Canterbury Museum and Botanical Gardens and an easy walk to great cars and restaurants. Staff was friendly, free parking, charming rooms!
