My husband and I recently stayed two nights at this lovely house. We had a super comfortable room, excellent breakfasts and the owners Jim and Karen made us feel so welcome. Wonderful garden and super hosts.
We spent an overnight stay with Jim and Karen to break the trip on our drive from the Marlborough Region to Queenstown. What a delightful place Carradale Manor turned out to be. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The garden is extraordinary and I can highly recommend the full breakfast. Home made bread, fresh preserves and oh those peaches! Just wonderful. Jim and Karen will make you very welcome and entertain you with plenty of yarns about the area. Don't forget to say hello to that sheep in the backyard!
We stayed with Jim and Karen the first night of our holiday in New Zealand as it is only about an hour's drive from Christchurch airport. They could not have made us more welcome starting with tea and homemade biscuits! They have retained their zest for meeting new people despite the fact that they have been doing B and B for many years, firstly from their farm but now from their modern house with a beautiful garden. Breakfast was made especially enjoyable with homemade jams and preserved fruit from the local area. If you want to meet a genuinely lovely couple this is the place.
