Was there anything really great about your stay you'd like to share?

Lorna was exceptionally understanding when (due to Air New Zealand) we missed our connection in Auckland and were an hour late arriving at the Miners Arms. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast excellent, an ideal stop over after a long day travelling and a great preparation to our holiday.

Everything was just as expected. Upstairs area all to ourselves with everything we needed. Animals were fun to feed & learn about & Lorna was very pleasant & interesting to chat with. The location was easy to find & close to places to eat out. I would definitely recommend Miners Arm as a place to stay

A lovely warm welcome when I arrived. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and inviting. Beautiful setting and the owners were very kind. A wonderful stay - would visit again without any hesitation and would highly recommend.

No, nothing to improve.

We had an extremely fantastic experience here! The place is very close to Christchurch airport, only 10 mins drive. Lorna and Steve are very nice and friendly and they made us feel like home here! The whole 1st floor (2 bedrooms, a living room area and a toilet) is provided to us, cozy beds, everything is tidy and super clean! Better than any 5-star hotels I would say. At night, you can watch stars at the balcony. A big and delicious breakfast is included! It only takes 7-8 min drive to the Bush Inn Centre which provides you plenty choices for dinner and a big Woolworths supermarket. The most impressive part is feeding and playing with the adorable sheeps and alpacas in their farm! The lovely dog "Sky" is also adorable! During our stay, a new doggie newly arrived and joined their farm. Hope that this 8-week old little doggie gets along well with Sky and the family! Conclusion: You must not miss it if you're visiting NZ!

Are there any improvements you would like to suggest?

Nothing, everything is fantastic!

Lorena and Steve were perfect hosts. The little farm and the sheep, dogs and especially the alpacas were an awesome experience for us. We'd Love to come again.

The hosts - Lorna and Steve - maintain a fantastic place, are very responsive and are an absolute delight to interact with. Breakfast was very good and the rooms very comfortable to stay in. We much enjoyed our stay here. Lorna also took special pride in showing the kids around the farm and our boys considered the time spent on the farm with the animals as the highlight of their New Zealand trip. Special thanks to Lorna and Steve for making this a memorable stay for us !

Friendly owner, great breakfast with tasty homemade jam. After breakfast, she will also bring us walk around her farm and feeding sheep and alpaca. Location nearby airport, definitely a great stay for last night in Christchurch.

The room was at second floor, we need to carry our luggage to upstairs.
