This was my second stay at The Grange, and when I arrived, staff remembered me. The rooms are comfortable, extremely clean and well-maintained. The location is perfect, just a few minutes away from North Hagley Park and a few more minutes to other places to visit in Christchurch. The only - very minor - thing to consider is the lack...

This is a period property nicely converted to B&B. Staff couldn't be more helpful, laundry included for three nights or more, mini bar and choc in room much appreciated. Lovely breakfasts. Christchurch itself is in rebuild mode but there's still not a lot in the city centre so follow the host's advice for places to eat.

We were initially put off by the B&B description of this accommodation. Visions of grumpy landladies and bland breakfasts came to mind. But this place is amazing! It's a beautiful, historic house which is full of character in a central location with tasteful, spotless rooms. Best of all the fantastic breakfast was as good as any cafe and included in... More

The best thing about The Grange is not its excellent accommodations, nor its convenient location in the heart of central Christchurch, but the friendliness and helpfulness of its staff who made us feel at home and provided us with extensive information about visiting the city.

Spent two nights here as part of our South Island trip. We are really glad we made the effort to visit Christchurch. The extend of devastation remaining four years on from the earthquake may shock you but the people of the city are trying very hard to regenerate their city and whilst many damaged buildings remain and many have been...

We arrived late on Dec 15 for a 4 night stay in the motel side of the property. The room was well appointed, very comfortable with a kitchenette, TV and wireless was available. We didn't eat at the accommodation only because we prefer to eat out at local cafes, restaurants etc wherever we go. The staff were very friendly and... More

We have had two nights at the Grange, at the beginning of our trip in November. This is a beautiful property, with wonderful service, great people. Warm welcome, beautiful room, huge clean bathroom, comfortable large bed, and a delicious full English breakfast, all provided :) Tea, coffee, and fresh milk in the fridge, great amenities in the bathroom. The lounge... More
