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!

... and with a building size of around 300sq metres. The garden alone is the size of a playing field. It is just stunning. The inside of the house has three bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a play/games room, a garage the size of some houses and the most amazing family space with an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen (with pantry). It felt strange to have so much space around us. The girls didn’t waste any time taking over their cousin Andrew’s bedroom with all their toys ...
... opened in front of me. The Wahakaraupo or in the Lyttelton Harbour was so wonderful that I could have stay there for hours! But we had to get moving since there was scheduled a car view in later afternoon.
Along sheep we crossed climbed a hill and for the first time ...
... thumbs up to you all and A BIG THANKS to everyone!!!
As we drive away from Lake Hawea and over the Lindis Pass the clouds begin to lift and it's not long before the sun is shining and there are bright blue skies all around.
The drive through Linis Pass was beautiful and quite different to a lot of New Zealands scenery, with light brown grasses covering rolling hills and not jagged mountains.
We stopped in the small town of Omarama for a bite ...
... lane road, but then a one lane bridge! There is a sign telling you who has right of way. The one in the pic is long so there is is a passing point half way. We had a late lunch in Geraldine a sleepy town with many of the shops closed on Saturday afternoon and plenty of free parking on the Main Street, what a novelty. Nearby was Grumpy Jack"s holiday park and the Tin Shed cafe and shop. From here we headed slightly south east through Burkes pass then picking up SH 79 ...
