Paradise in Christchurch
My wife and I traveled New Zealand for over a month and stayed in several B &B’s on both the north and south islands. The exceptional service, friendly and giving owners make Designer B &B the finest inn we encountered. Chad and Steve provide a clean, welcoming and calming environment in which to relax and recharge. Their breakfast is a feast while Marmite the feline adds an added touch of entertainment to the morning conversation. A special thank you to Chad for being such a kind and giving human; I injured my knee prior to visiting Designer and he took pity upon me and provided me with a cane to maneuver around Christchurch and then getting back to the states. Needless to say, my wife and I will be forever grateful for his kindness. Definitely our next trip to New Zealand will include a much longer stay at Designer B & B.

Good spot to stay
Good place to stay. A little out of the city centre but it’s an easy 30 minute walk in and out. Breakfast is nicely done with cereal, toast and eggs with tea/coffee and juice. Chet is a lovely welcoming host and will give plenty of information on what’s around and what’s on.

Chet is a remarkable host. We loved everything about our stay at the Cottage: the chat the friendly social atmosphere with all the guests, the accommodation and Chef's gardens. We landed in Christchurch after a long flight from the UK and we were instantly made welcome by Chet. Thank you Chet.
