We had a great experience at the Grange, after travelling for 2 days we arrived very tired and were upgraded to the spa room, which was lovely and much appreciated. The ladies made us very welcome, cooked a great breakfast, and after we left, got in touch with us to forward some mail that they had received.

I found The Grange on the internet when searching for a B&B in Christchurch. I was chaperoning 2 elderly people giving talks in NZ and thought this would be a fabulous place to stay, as centrally located and looked amazing. We weren't disappointed as the staff, rooms, and ambiance were wonderful. We received first class service and everything they could... More

To be honest the boutique accommodation was good but the experience made even better through good service. They went out of their way help by printing out some tickets we needed and even let us use a discount card for the restaurant at the nearby returned war veterans club. The ground floor room was comfortable and heated by a spit... More

Great friendly welcome and all staff very pleasant. We stayed in a motel unit at the back of the complex . Lovely warm and quiet. Very good location with walking distance to the square. We were going to a dinner at Fiddlesticks Restaurant which is also walking distance. The rooms have been refurbished to a high quality. Just one little... More

Enjoyed staying in this very warm and quiet house. A real treat with so many historic places lost to the city. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, and lovely staff. Very handy to town and botanic gardens.

It was our first night stay of our 9-day New Zealand visit. Was a comfortable stay. We have friendly and helpful front desk while doing check-in and booking transport to the railway station for next day early morning. Only thing the floor carpet feel like wet when we check-in. It gets better after we turn off room heater for a... More

My mother and daughter and I stayed in the main house on the top floor. A beautifully restored early New Zealand home. Fabulous decor. An amazing bathroom. The breakfasts were outstanding. Endless free cups of 'proper' coffee...cappucino's, latte's or whatever. European cuisine. The Egg's Benendict were divine. A wedding party or family gathering would appreciate the enormous extra living room,... More

We booked in for 3 nights & wanted to see what was happening in the city. Our room in the motel block was very comfortable & had a separate kitchenette with a modern hot plate & microwave. We had a lovely breakfast in the house, our hosts were very friendly & helpful. Sad to to see the state of the... More

We stayed here for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Hotel/Motel is in a good position on the edge of the city. Clean; comfortable bed; large bathroom with shower; kitchen area. One of the best motels we've stayed in during our New Zealand visit. Would certainly recommend.

Room 8 (in the B & B section) has only a space heater and you will be chilly unless you're in bed with the electric blanket turned on. Also, we had been promised rooms 1 and 8 (both ground floor) when we reserved, and when we got there were told that room 1 was unavailable, so 1 of us had... More
