The family-run Clearview Lodge is a luxurious bed and breakfast offering guests warm hospitality and the benefit of the fourth-generation owners’ local knowledge. The hotel is surrounded by lush gardens and situated on 10 acres of vines, orchards and olive groves offering guests a tranquil, rural retreat for their time in Christchurch. It’s also well situated just 15 minutes from the city centre for access to shopping and sightseeing, next door to Clearwater championship golf course which features lakes and fishing, and only 15 minutes from Christchurch airport.
The bed and breakfast boasts three en-suite rooms – each named after fruits grown on-site offering a nod to the hotel’s vineyards and orchards – all with private balconies that open up onto the garden. The Pinot and Frantoio rooms are upstairs, adjacent to the guest lounge, while the Braeburn room adjoins the formal dining room, opening up onto a private patio. They all have super-king beds, bathrooms with heated flooring, bathrobes, a hairdryer, massage showers, a phone, TV with Freeview and Sky channels, fresh flowers, fruit platter, chocolates and water.
The lodge is located just outside the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Christchurch, which offers great shopping and sightseeing opportunities including the Restart Mall, Canterbury Museum, Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Christchurch Art Gallery, the Cardboard Cathedral, the Orana Wildlife Park and the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve with Kiwi House and Maori Cultural. Back at the lodge, wind down after a busy day of city touring, take a walk through the hotel’s gardens or enjoy a cooling dip in the pool.
The hotel has a cosy dining room where breakfast is served daily. For lunch and dinner, there are plenty of options in nearby Christchurch city centre which is bustling with cafes, bars, restaurants and nightlife.
