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.

Eva was very friendly and helpful, gave us all the information we needed.

The check-in was quick. Staff was very helpful. The GPS was weird because the location is on a corner; but that was easy to figure out. Walking distance to a lot of good sites, RE: Start Mall, Hagley Park, Restaurants. Good place

Once we figured out how to get her from the airport (driving on the left side of the road, in an unfamiliar place, can be a bit of a challenge!) the amazing hospitality and overall charm of this place was a welcomed relief - one does not always know what they are getting when booking online.

I must say, the room looked exactly like in photos! Stylish and modern looking, comfortable bed. The sofa under the TV could have been better positioned elsewhere, but it was really cosy to sit on it! Comes with a kitchenette but it was very cramped right at the entrance to room. Bathroom was a little bit small but it was... More

Free parking (fabulous for inner city!) Fast free WiFi. Friendly staff..especially Katie who was just lovely. Breakfast was fabulous, orders made on request, (especially for fussy hubby's!)

We booked a queen-sized room in this lovely Victorian House. Although our room was on the first floor next to the reception and in front of the house, it was quiet. The bathroom is very interesting -- high ceilings and a long layout reminiscent of period rooms. The location is excellent -- it's within walking distance to Botanic Gardens, Cathedral... More
