Stayed here for 2 nights, Linda and the staff are fabulous, very warm and helpful and the rooms are gorgeous, with nice bright clean decor and modern bathrooms. Very well located for visiting the centre of Christchurch and the restaurants and bars as well as shopping and tourist sights. Breakfast was fantastic as well - a real home from home!

The Grange provided a clean, well appointed room in a quiet neighborhood. The staff was wonderful, friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent in a bright and cheery room. The Grange is a pleasant and memorable stay on my 4 week holiday Short walk to shops, sites and restaurants. Highly recommended, it's a great value.

Perfect location, just 5 minutes' walk from downtown. Very comfortable studio with separate sitting area. Hosts were lovely -even gave us a guidebook when we realized we'd left our book in the rental car on North Island.

Our open plan room was well designed, well equipted and perfect for our trip, the bathroom was great, underfloor heating and a walk in shower. The room had a great American sized bed with the open plan kitchen having a refrigerator, double hob, microwave and all neccesities for preparing a wonderful meal.

Perfect location near the Botanic Garden and close to the centre. The team at the Grange couldn't have been more helpful, even lending us crockery for the rest of our trip! Looking forward to going back there in a couple of weeks, although that will mean we're at the end of our trip!

We found The Grange B&B to be utterly charming. It's has a cozy home atmosphere, but in a city-centre location. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. The breakfasts are made-to-order and delicious! (I highly recommend the eggs benedict!) If you like the idea of a B&B, you'll love this place!

Our room was clean and tidy. Decorated to suit the era of the building. Bed comfy. Heating worked well. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Range of choices of cooked breakfast- bacon & eggs and eggs Benedict both good. Fresh espresso coffee excellent. Catered for gluten intolerance. Located around the corner from the Botanic Gardens and Museum. Wifi useless.
