The Grange is a Boutique B&B in the main homestead itself and behind is a Motel.
The main house boasts of being entirely built of the strong native timbers Kauri and Totara and survived many quakes.
There are 5 large boutique suites very tastefully decorated with large bathrooms which are very stylish and modern. All necessary toiletries are provided and the Room and bath are heated.A small luggage storage in the room was a bonus.The bed was large and bedding conducive to a good nights sleep.
The rooms are well stocked and the Lone Goat sauvignon Blanc that they had was really good. One thing I missed though was a clock in the room and moisturiser in the bath.
It is situated on the corner of Cramner Square,on Armagh making it the closest to the re:START mall & the Botanic Gardens. Almost most places in the city are within walking distance and there are some good restaurants nearby. Be sure to take a card from the reception to avail of small compliments.
Breakfast is sumptuous and you have a choice of hot and cold with refreshingly freshly brewed coffee. I cannot say the same of the juices which were from the can.
Polite and helpful, they are ready to please you and help out with your queries.
The house itself is quaint and grand. The front is somewhat bare and patches of greenery would certainly add to the look.
Did feel the pricing was a bit steep though.
