Sandy and Chris are lovely hosts. As a Super 15 Fan Sandy went out of her way to bring me to the match last Friday night to see Dan Carter and Richie McCaw play for the last time together for the Crusaders. Lovely breakfast and easy access to city by bus and airport.


Lavender Towers was a beautifully kept B&B, with lovely rooms and a great breakfast. The owner was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful - ordering me taxi's, packing me up a lovely breakfast for my early start and even offering to drop me to the airport on her way out. I cannot recommend Lavender Towers highly enough. I enjoyed my stay so much that I returned on my final night in Christchurch before travelling home. Thank you so much Sandy :)

Put a lock on the bedroom doors and the place would be perfect! I understand that its a very safe area and a family home with a locked front door but when you're leaving things like your passport in the room it makes you feel a lot more comfortable if there is a lock on the door. Apart from that a lovely lovely stay.

This home-away-from-home is perfect without any lock on the bedroom doors. There is a security camera outside on the driveway, there is a burglar alarm for the inside, a locked bolt on both side gates, good working locks on the outside doors and we have two very reliable dogs, who sense nasty people hanging around. Yes,we live in a very safe, upmarket suburb of Northwest Christchurch. It is a known fact, that when travelling you should keep your passport with you at all times,also valuables.


I had a wonderful two night stay at the Lavender Towers B&B. The facilities were clean, the food was delicious and the owners were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The B&B is not located near the downtown, though it is walking distance from stores and a good restaurant. They were my last two nights in New Zealand and I was looking for something relaxing and close to the airport. It was perfect for what I wanted, and as a bonus they have two adorable, friendly dogs.


Very kind, friendly and helpful host.
