Testimonials

 

Thank you – February 2013
We wanted to say a special thank you to you and Ian for our lovely stay with you in February.  It was a great introduction to Bed and Breakfasts in New Zealand  - we stayed in a few – all very welcoming, but yours was very special!
 

True Kiwi Hospitality - Seattle, March 2010
"In other trips to New Zealand, we have been disappointed with how few New Zealanders we met when staying in B & Bs. Tangley is a breath of fresh air on this score. Both Janet and Ian are true New Zealanders of several generations, whose hospitality and interest in their guests was genuine and generous. The house is well located on a quiet residential street only a few minutes drive to either the airport or the city center. A lovely small restaurant, Miscio, is a short walk away for dinner. The rooms are beautifully appointed in keeping with the home's 100 year old character, yet remodeled to provide all modern amenities, such as heated bath floors and additional sound proofing for privacy and quiet. There is no TV or phone in the rooms, which didn't bother us a bit. Breakfast is so good that Janet had to put together a cookbook to share her recipes."

Delightful - Marji, Houston, March 2010
"We loved every minute of our stay and appreciated their attention to simple details. They are located very close to the airport and within walking distance of good restaurants and shops. Their gardens and rooms are lovely - Janet and Ian make you feel very welcome!"

Janet & Ian Wallace are the hosts that enable you to feel like family while surrounded by a luxurious setting - Cheyenne, Wyoming, March 2010
"Our stay at Tangley on Clyde was one we will remember for years to come. Our hosts Janet and Ian Wallace are professionals in warm reception, and enabled our stay to be nothing short of perfect. Easy accessibility to both downtown Christchurch and the airport are a definate plus. Our accomodations were luxurious yet not pretentious, ones that made us feel like one of the family and spoiled at the same time. Janet is a master of the NZ gourmet breakfast while Ian is the ultimate travel planner. We utilized his lifetime knowledge of NZ South Island experiences to enhance our trip. They both earn and deserve their 5 star rating."

Lovely Place to Stay - Leah, Surrey, March 2010
"This accommodation was simply beautiful. a really lovely place to stay at the close of our 3-4 weeks trip to NZ to celebrate our 40th Wedding Aniversary.Tangley on Clyde is situated just outside the centre of Christchurch in a quiet, residential street. We were delighted with our room (with en-suite facilities) the house itself and our very friendly and welcoming hosts, Janet & Ian. They made us feel very comfortable and really treated us like friends.There was a great attention to detail in the furnishings and decor which was really special. The breakfasts were delicious with a selection of home-grown fruit and home made jams, one of the best breakfasts we'd eaten during our stay. If ever we were in Christchurch again we would certainly want to stay at Tangley again"

Home from Home - Bob and Scilla, Wales, Feb 2010
Delightful stay at the start of our NZ holiday. Served tea and homemade cake in the lovely garden on our arrival from the airport and made to feel so welcome. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom was great. Tangley is a beautifully restored house and Janet and Ian are fabulous hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they took the time to chat about the area and our travel plans without over doing it. And the breakfasts? Delicious ,from the homemade meusli and yogurt to the bacon and creamed mushrooms, toast, croissants etc etc!

Somebody once answered the question what "ladies and Gentlemen" are and do, in a simple, yet in my view to the point manner by saying: Ladies and gentlemen take time and effort to make other people feel as comfortable as possible. That is precisely what the two of you have done for us and we are very grateful for it.

The most loving welcome I've ever received, and hospitality tailored so perfectly to our needs, anticipated in advance was much appreciated. This is not a B&B it's a home.

I cannot believe it has been almost two months since our fabulous trip to Christchurch. We had such a wonderful time that we definitely want to return again. You and Ian made our trip better than we could have imagined! Your home and gardens are beautiful beyond compare and all the little details and time you spent sharing the details with us was amazing. Thanks to both for the wonderful suggestions, hand written maps and the Rugby match!!
