In the Christchurch area we are now featuring a new accommodation in our The Green Kiwi eco-focused self-drive. Earlier this year, after 20 years of operation, Clearview Lodge has been sold and the new owners will no longer operating as a B&B property.

We would therefore like to introduce Silverstream Lodge B&B.

Situated 4kms from Lincoln township and University, only 30 minutes’ drive from Christchurch, Silverstream offers a warm Kiwi welcome. This boutique accommodation set in a stunning rural landscape where guests will enjoy the peace and beauty of the surrounding countryside as they relax in luxury. The rooms are beautifully designed and decorated providing a quiet sanctuary where you can relax and unwind. Each has its own private balcony or outside garden area. 

Every morning at Silverstream you will be greeted by a home cooked breakfast including seasonal fruits, homemade bread, locally sourced produce and not forgetting eggs and bacon given by willing hens and pigs living happy lives at Silverstream. And of course, a fresh cup of New Zealand coffee or tea to get you ready for the day!

All itinerary documents in English and German have been updated as well as the rate sheet. Please note that published package rates for 2019-2020 are unaffected by this change.
