I was visiting Christchurch on a job hunting mission (which was successful) and came across Designer Cottages quite late in my hunting for accommodation. The double room was spacious enough for 2 (perfect for 1). It was clean and tidy, and the parking immediately outside very useful. Breakfast items were always left out on a self-service basis which meant that you could have a late night drink if you so wished. It was like staying over with friends who you never saw. Absolutely delightful. No endless lists or signs about what you can and can't do and I prefer the ultimate trust implication, makes you feel very welcome and very comfortable.
