The finest bed and breakfast accommodation in an elegant 1920's setting in Christchurch, New Zealand. View our luxury bed and breakfast accommodation options.
There's no better place to enjoy your Christchurch bed breakfast holiday than the charming Elm Tree House in stylish Merivale. It is so named because of the large weeping elm set amongst its spacious grounds. This large family house was built in 1920 by the England Brothers who were known at the time for their unique architectural style, and was later owned by Canterbury's Member of Parliament from 1925 to 1930. Native timbers and lead light windows are used throughout both storeys of this early New Zealand colonial style home.
Elm Tree House bed breakfast is well situated 2km from the central city district, Hagley Park and the Christchurch Gardens. It is 15 minutes by mini shuttle from the airport and Trans Alpine Rail, and just 5 minutes walk to many fine restaurants, antique shops and a shopping mall in fashionable Merivale Village.
Your hosts, Karen and Allan Scott, are native New Zealanders who returned to Christchurch in 1994 after extensive world travel over a period of twenty years, living and working in England, Europe, America, Australia, Japan and South Africa. During that time Allan pursued his engineering career working for one of England's top motor racing teams. It was from their home in Oxfordshire, UK, that Karen first found her passion for Bed & Breakfast accommodation. They returned to New Zealand to full-time involvement in providing truly fine hosted Christchurch bed breakfast accommodation for the discerning traveler.
Each of our six Christchurch bed and breakfast accommodation options has its own unique style and character. King, Queen, twin and triple beds, all with private en suite bathrooms, television, telephone, tea and coffee, DVD player, clothes iron, hairdryer and bath robes.
