“Lovely Honeymoon Stay at The Grange”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We stayed in Room 5, nicely decorated room- aircon, heater, a nice comfy bed and even a spa!

The owners were really warm and certainly make us feel like at home.

Strongly recommended since it has probably the best location. a affordable price considering breakfast were provided!

And BreakFast!!! The egg benedict is the best i have ever! Dont miss it!

Obvious from the title, we stayed in the motel section of this facility. Our room was very nice, spacious and well equipped. Nicely located so that many restaurants are within walking distance. A little above average in quietness, but then we had good neighbors. Smoking was allowed in the patio area in front of the motel section so that is either a plus or a minus.

A lovely place to stay, quiet, comfortable, central, good facilities, helpful staff ..... just everything one would hope for. We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the hinterland and coast, Akaroa where we were luck enough to view a large pod of hector dolphins, Hanmar Springs, small towns on the Canterbury Plains. New Brighton and Lyttelton are interesting.

Room Tip: Room 4 is charming.

The homestead and motel have been renovated since the earthquake to provide a welcoming atmosphere reminiscent of home. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room we had was huge, nicely furnished and clean.There was air conditioning and a comfy bed. Breakfast was very good, cooked to order or continental and featuring expresso coffee.

The house is well situated in Christchurch. It was an easy walk to what is left of the square, the new Cardboard cathedral, the restart mall, the botanic gardens and many restaurants. We recommend a walk in the gardens, along the avon. Its very beautiful and peaceful in what is a surreal city centre.

We would stay again. It was much more personable than being in a hotel. There were some little touch such as the carafe of cold water in the fridge. The only things I missed was no moisturiser in the bathroom and a clock by the bed.

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.

Room Tip: If your have a lot of luggage please opt for the ground floor rooms.

Pleasant good sized room. Close to the city centre but alot of that isn't there anymore after the earthquake. Some decent restaurants and a nice pub - Pegasus Arms - close by. We took the tour to Akaroa, worthwhile.

Christchurch - following the earthquakes - has few hotels / motels in the central area. The Grange is very well located - close to the rebuild of the CBD, gardens, parks, river. Building is in top class order - no damage - and is beautifully furnished. Staff v helpful.
