Awesome place, awesome lady Gay Walker, totally rejuvenating environment. Needed a rest from my busy life; I really appreciated your kindness. I highly recommend Flaxton Manor. Thank you Gay for letting me stay and having a lovely time! Yours, Raewin.

Having to shift out of our home for EQ repairs was not something we looked forward to – we needed somewhere to stay for 4 weeks with our young family that was like home, warm, and relaxing, and I think we hit the jackpot. Gay was amazing, the rooms and beds were all very comfortable, the shower was great and the country outlook was excellent. The kids got to see the fish and parrots and feed carrots to the horses over the fence. The thing that really mattered was that if felt like home. Thank you Gay, we really appreciated your kindness and accommodating friendliness and we highly recommend Flaxton Manor.

We had the pleasure of staying at Flaxton Manor for a few days last month. In addition to the comfy bed, beautifully prepared and served breakfast and the serenity of our surroundings, we also enjoyed time with the “Hostess with the Mostess”, Gay. I cannot recommend Flaxton Manor highly enough and we will most certainly return again in the near future. Kae & Chris, North Lakes, Qld Australia.

This has to be the best Canterbury has to offer for anything from a weekend away to a lavish wedding. A must for anyone needing a place to stay!

Firstly Wow! Secondly Wow! and thirdly a very big Wow! Best price I have ever come across in all my travels around the world for tranquility, beauty and peace, what a treat! Moved to Christchurch 8 years ago and I always had to travel out of town for a break, but the Flaxton Manor was right here, and I only just discovered via it this wonderful website! Believe me, the photos speak for themselves and you get much more when you’re there in person. What a bonus. Having to work and raise children with one child with mental disabilities, I chose Flaxton Manor as my respite and I was blown away and came away feeling well rested and very impressed. Great set up and I can’t thank Gay enough for the great hospitality and making my stay so enjoyable. I plan to book monthly for this beautiful accommodation. I will also recommend the Flaxton Manor to friends and family coming from abroad – stay at this lavish 5-Star Manor! Once again thank you Gay for having a lovely escape not to far away!

Fantastic B&B – peaceful, relaxing wonderful surroundings and a great choice of accommodation … certainly will be back. Thanks Gay.

Gay, we were so pleased we could still stay with you when arrangements for the Rugby World Cup games changed following your tragic earthquake in Christchurch. I will remember when we found your home – the exhilaration at the location, beautiful grounds and the grand Manor. The special touches you have make it 5-Star class and we felt very spoiled. Certainly we would say the best BnB we have stayed in with our travels overseas and in NZ. Congratulations on your terrific B&B; we will definitely come back with family if in NZ. The options of rooms and self-contained area would suit beautifully. Take care, so nice to meet you.

For four weeks, this was home for us. Thank you Gay. You made us feel so welcome under very trying circumstances. Great location, great facilities, great people. We couldn’t ask for more.

We can’t thank you enough Gay. With all the chaos getting married only a few days after the Chrsitchurch Earthquake, we were so pleased to come across you and your beautiful accommodation. You were absolutely wonderful from the start. We had an amazing stay on our wedding night; it was so lovely to come home to candlelight and soft music playing (thank you thank you!!). It was so nice to wake up as newlyweds to such beautiful surroundings and your cooked breakfast was divine! I would highly recommend anyone to stay at your lovely accomodation. Your immaculate grounds and home made for absolutely stunning wedding photos. Thank you for being a part of our special day and helping to make it perfect. Jasmine and Enda Murphy – Wedding February 26, 2011

Gorgeous accomodation, absolute luxury and privacy. Spent 4 nights here and will definately be returning. Gay is a wonderful friendly, people-person.

My wife Pam finds all our accommodation when we go away and when she showed me the website here for Flaxton Manor, we both loved what we saw. Now we’ve stayed here for 3 nights, we can say the reality is as good as the pictures. Actually better. The peace and quiet … the free broadband internet … the comfy beds … it’s all been great. And Gay is so friendly and helpful. A top spot. So we’re coming back after we have a few days in Queenstown, before we return home to Oz.

AFFORDABLE LUXURY – Have stayed twice at Flaxton Manor while travelling for business and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the cooked breakfast a total treat! After our busy daily schedule we find it so easy to relax with a stroll through the property. Peaceful and yet so handy to the city. Thank you for your hospitality – we will definitely return.

Sonya and Gary


Congratulations on your website. We just want to mention that we stay at Flaxton Manor every time we come to Christchurch and have always been impressed with the surroundings, and how Gay makes us feel welcome, like a part of her family. We would recommend Flaxton Manor to everyone who wants both luxury and tranquil surroundings.
