      Great place to live at in Christchurch. It is about 10 minutes drive from the city center, which is still recuperating from the 2011 earthquake. The hotel proudly stands at 132 years of age and has a vintage look that gives it a very romantic aura, perfect for honeymooners like us. The lady at the reception was very welcoming and gave us handy tips on where to eat and visit.

      We stayed at Merivale Manor for 2 nights, one day each at the start and end of our roadtrip of the south island. The room during our first night was equipped with a full kitchen, music system and Jacuzzi bath. However, during our return trip, though the room price was only 10NZD less, it was considerable smaller in size and had no Jacuzzi. Hence the reason I gave 4 stars to the hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend the hotel!

      ... slow walk back to the motel but really glad we had done it. I lay down on the bed and zonked got up about 1 am took off my clothes then zonked again however both of us woke up at 4am totally awake and enjoyed tea and toast and a brilliant shower which was so powerful we enjoyed a free back massage as well. It gave us time to rearrange our cases and backpacks and get into the zone. The next leg was the Tranz Alpine train. The lady owner of the motel provides a free transfer to the ...

      ... we started hunting for cars and vans to hire, immediately finding loopholes and wondering how we would sell it in time at the end of the trip. We quickly lost interest! The next day we moved on to Foley Towers Hostel in the CBD where our friend Zoe that we met in India worked with her boyfriend, Ben. We checked in and gave Zoe a big hug quickly catching up on the last eight months since we met; It's so amazing how travellers paths cross. We were shown to our sweet ...

      ... the first time in a long time I actually felt scared. I feel very safe in New Zealand but there's something very eery about this town. People are agressive in the way they speak to you and look at you and I felt bad for taking photos of the trodden down buildings. I just wanted a little corner shop and I asked a cleaner and he sent me on a wild goose chase - but I eventually found one on my own accord. As I was walking though a homeless person approached me - I was by myself ...

      ... public in July/August 2013 over 2 and a half years after the February quake. What I did take away from the city was the unbelievable resolve of the locals. The shops that had to close are now housed in a Re-Start Mall which is a shopping mall made entirely out of refurbished shipping containers - post offices/banks/clothes shops/cafes you name it you'll find it in the Re-Start Mall. The Anglican Church arranged for the building of what is ...

      We were to spend two weeks travelling New Zealand's South Island in similar fashion to our road trip in Australia but weren't due to collect our new camper van until the day after we landed. This provided us with an interesting opportunity to spend some time in Christchurch. With NZ accommodation being as expensive as Aus we found a decent hostel (although still too snobby for dorms) a ten minute walk from the centre. New Zealand lies on major fault lines and ...
