              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

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              It was quiet and like being at home. We could wander around the house. It was close to town and shopping.

              Nothing it was falsely advertised a lovely self contained cottage it was dirty,smelt of mould and mildew.All the dishes were dirty, the toilet would not refill after flushing on a whole the place was disgusting.

              Some effort had been put into the appearance of the rooms There was an electric blanket on the bed

              cheap shower cubicle with flimsy fittings poor and erratic breakfast provisions very little contact with staff

              Chet the keeper was very helpful and really wants to make sure his guest have a great stay! He is a step above his competition!!

              It was far from my expectation. I was looking for charming I got mediocre !

              It did not live up to the advertising.

              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
              10.0

              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.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              It was clean and comfortable, location was convenient for visiting the city and the owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area
