      Value for money, friendliness, well-run, secure - a home away from home

      The host was very friendly and offered great advice on what to see and do in Christchurch. For this trip I booked a shared bathroom room which was excellent, but next time I stay at Designer Cottage I will book the ensuite room option as these rooms looked very nice and homely. Breakfast was set up for me each morning and I could enjoy this whatever time I liked, just like home. The garden at Designer Cottage was a real bonus and I found them to be very relaxing.

      Very nice atmosphere - very laid-back. Helpful, friendly owner (Chet). Liked the set-up - nice to be able to wander in and out of kitchen, make cups of tea, etc. Pleasant decking for sitting outside. Good location.

      Loved the home-y feel of the place. Nice and private. Lovely decrations.

      I think you could add alot of value is there were more than one bathroom/shower/toilet

      Disaster

      Old stinks not clean

    • Older travelers
      4.2

      There is only one bathroom shared with several rooms. It´s too expensive, because the room doesn´t have bathroom and It´s far from all the attractions of Christchurch.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Cosy cottage feel

      Lack of full length mirror in room or bathroom; also lack of very bright mirror lighting

    • Couple

      Love the heritage and cultural of this unique Christchurch B&B. It is so Chet... the host is a real desiger in Christchurch(Landscape Architect). The B&B is very special, one of the best B&B we stayed. If you are relax and easy going travellers, also open to new concepts. Why not try this unique Kiwiana stay in Christchurch. Only few minutes walk from Colombo Street and many attractions. Looking forwards to our next visit.
