Designer Cottage B&B, Christchurch
An affordable and comfortable Bed and Breakfast
The hosts were so accommodating and serve the most lovely breakfast.
Micaela, us1 night trip
Designer Cottage B&B, Christchurch
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.
