We chose to use the motel portion of The Grange for our visit for its kitchen facilities and it worked well for us, especially when we did take out from Pedro's House of Lamb. The room (upstairs) was somewhat small compared to American motel standards, but clean and well appointed. If you want to watch TV, you'll do so sitting on the bed. Other than one Sky Sport channel, the TV lineup was the usual limited New Zealand selections. Wi-fi wasn't functioning upon our arrival but was quickly sorted out the next morning, and we were welcomed into the main building to use their signal in the interim. As noted elsewhere, the hosts are friendly and helpful. Parking is free but if you come back late in the evening, you may have to park on the street. Next time we'll try the B&B component in the main building.
