Our hostess Chris was a lovely person and did everything to make us welcome, including inviting us for drinks before we went out for dinner (the restaurant was closed as we were the only guests in off peak season).The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean and a...

Fyffe Country Lodge would be one of the best places to stay in Canterbury. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and very upmarket. It is 6 star quality! The outdoor surroundings are beautifully kept by Colin (host) and are so picturesque with specatular views of the mountains. The hosts are very friendly and served us the absolute best Seafood Chowder we...

When making our bookings for our N.Z. trip from the U.K. we relied to a great extent on Tripadvisor reviews. I'm wondering whether we did stay at the same place! This place was the only disappointment of the whole trip. We appreciate that this was the winter 'off' season but everywhere else had kept up the expected high standards. On...
