We stayed at the Grange for our last night before heading back to the US. Great hosts and really nice room with some very pretty antique furniture. Within walking distance of Christchurch downtown and very close to some very good restaurants. The breakfast was so tasty, plentiful, and authentic!

Lovely boutique B&B - stayed last weekend for three nights with my Mum on a girls weekend, we shared the twin room, B&B accommodation. The staff are wonderful, very friendly - rooms spruced each day which was very nice, lovely facilities. Would definitely stay again - haven't seen anything else quite like this in Christchurch.

We stayed at The Grange twice for one night each time in June. Picked it for the location and rating and weren't disappointed in any way. Nice rooms both times. Service was excellent, Much more a business style establishment than living in with the family establishment which suited us fine.Staff were pleasant and very good with local attractions and eateries....

The Grange was a lovely place to stay with a generous sized room, well equipped kitchenette and free wifi . Location is good - within walking distance of city , gardens, restaurants and coach stops. Eva was wonderfully helpful without being intrusive. I would definitely recommend .

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Motel for 3 nights and we had a very enjoyable stay. The studio room was modern, clean and well equipped and the very comfortable bed ensured we slept well every night. The bedroom itself was spacious however the kitchenette was quite small. You can walk to most attractions within 10-15 minutes including the... More

We had a lovely time staying at this beautiful little B&B in Christchurch. Linda, who was on the front desk as we arrived was always helpful, informative and kind and we felt really welcomed and settled from the minute we stepped in through the door. Our room was lovely, great facilities and plenty of space. Super clean too. The Grange... More

I travel a lot for work and was looking for something a little different for my Sunday layover in Christchurch. My room was very nice and the staff was very helpful in assisting me with my late arrival and delayed departure. Great location as well, would definitely recommend to friends and stay again.

Enjoyed our stay in this B&B. The owners were nice and introduced us the attractions near the B&B. The breakfast comes included and it was good to take some time to sip your coffee slowly. There was ample parking space available as the B&B was not fully filled as we went in winter time. However, if the B&B and motel... More

Amazing room, great price, great location. We had such a good service at the reception that we forgot to ask their names hahahah but they are sooooo extremely friendly and helpful. The location is also right in the heart of the city which makes it easy to walk around, 10 mins to Botanic Gardens, 15 mins to the RE-Start Mall... More
