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!

... if you get organised early enough, they can get booked out up to a year in advance, and our happy to share a hut with 39 other people they are a good event. We eventually found a reasonable local track doing a loop around the town the steepness of which was enough to tax Roz's back. Looking at a map of one of the major tracks I realised how different the walking here is. The animal life, sand flies apart, is benign but the remoteness and weather is not. Remember that ...
... we also got the feeling from the guide that the city is fighting back. This was apparent with the new temporary shopping 'mall'. It has been erected from ship containers but the effect is quite hippy and stunning, it was very busy with tourists and locals alike. The tram guide even said that some of the locals thought it better than the original mall! Also throughout the city street art works have been erected against the devastation backdrops giving a glimmer ...
... bite we hit the road for Hanmer Springs making just one short detour to pick up some fresh fruit as a roadside fruit and veg market. The coastline faded and the landscaped started as rolling hills and then transformed into grassy mountains the closer we got to our next destination. While the landscape shifted heaps and heaps of sheep remained a constant across our two hour drive. We arrived around 7:30 PM to a small village with the promise of hot springs, spa and ...
... to finally begin our road trip adventure. Just driving in through the Southern Alps was beautiful enough but then seeing Lake Tekapo was really stunning. We ventured up to Mt Johns Observatory to look down on the Lake which seemed to go on forever. It looked like a filtered holiday brochure with the blue water sparkling in the sun surrounded by the orangey-brown mountains and no buildings in sight. We then found a campsite and put our tent, table and chairs up ...
... is made from compressed cardboard - huge cardboard pipes form the impressive arched ceiling and the roof is constructed from corrugated plastic sheets. The interior of the cathedral was serene and calm, and we lingered there for a short while before heading further into the centre. The shopping centre of Christchurch is now a quirky collection of container shops. The container ATM made us chuckle as ...
