      We wanted a nice luxurious weekend without having to go far. This ticked all the boxes friendly accommodating staff, amazing food and luxurious rooms. We had no idea Christchurch had such a gem and it was nice to stay local and support a Christchurch business. I would reccommend Huntley lodge for anyone who wants to be treated!

      It was so nice I didn't like having to leave!

      In the restaurant, I had lamb. That was extremely nice. I have never had such a delicious lamb before.

      I arrived there at night time and there was no light of this lodge so that it was difficult to find there.

      Not only is the service impeccable, the staff are friendly and help to make you feel at home. I would definitely stay again if I return to Christchurch. We were even upgraded to a Garden Suite on our arrival.

      We had a wedding in Christchurch but didn't want to stay downtown. We loved Huntley Lodge for the location (near our event) but more so because it offers luxury, boutique accommodation in a beautiful old building with lots of history. We loved the wrap around verandah, grounds, high is a cross between a boutique hotel/ lodge and b&B. We would recommend it to friends.
