Anselm House B and B Facilities

Guest Lounge

Anselm House provides comfortable, relaxed and friendly accommodation located on the banks of the Avon River in Christchurch. You enjoy a home away from home in a beautiful setting, where you can rest undisturbed in the privacy of our house and garden, or explore Christchurch with ease.

Enjoy Christchurch's warm, summer evenings on the terrace beside the river. This is the ideal place to relax and unwind with a glass of New Zealand wine after a day of sight-seeing.

Our lounge room attracts the best sun of the day through the bay window. The room is decorated with art and craft furniture and you can enjoy the use of a widescreen TV, DVDs of iconic New Zealand movies and snuggle up in front of an open gas fire.

We provide a choice of Continental or full, cooked breakfasts, served each morning in our dining or family rooms. An evening meal is available by arrangement.
