Stayed here for 2 nights in the Queen sized room and had a lovely stay - friendly and informative hosts, well cooked breakfast with proper coffee. The room was perfectly clean, with a super comfy bed. Liked the touches of having a choice of full sized bottles of red, white or pudding wine from the mini bar, which weren't overly... More

The Grange Motel is now my first choice of place to stay in Christchurch. The motel units look out onto a very attractive garden, are stylishly furnished and during my stay were very quiet. Leaving my car parked at the property for the full day after check out wasn't a problem. I was very happy with my stay.

The Grange felt like a home away from home. Linda was so helpful (and even concerned one morning when I didn't come down for breakfast), she had fabulous restaurant suggestions and even helped out one night when I just wanted to order in. The staff even organized shuttles for me and gave me maps of the city, then highlighted all... More

This place was a great little find for a one night stop over in Christchurch! Very friendly staff, comfy and clean rooms, all close enough to the town centre. We stayed in one of the motel rooms at the back, which was perfect for what we needed. Due to road closures and a somewhat complicated one way system, it took... More

We stayed at The Grange for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip around the South Island and 1 night at the end of our trip and we were more than happy to return to The Grange for our final night. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Linda was very helpful and the breakfast was superb. Highly... More

We unfortunately could only manage 1 night at this wonderful B & B/Motel but will definitely return on our next visit to Christchurch.We were greeted by a very friendly/professional Eva who made us feel very welcome on our arrival.I agree the breakfast is lovely served in a very warm/cosy room & much better than having to find a café first...
