The Grange was our first port of call on a three week tour of New Zealand. Selected from TA of course, we were warmly greeted by the ubiquitous Linda and shown to a rear 'motel' unit. No complaints at all; clean, tidy, well appointed and free wi-fi to boot. I had a good night's sleep. We didn't breakfast there as we wanted to get on the road.
We were surprised by the devastation in Christchurch - somewhat total in the centre and therefore appreciate that many businesses will have gone to the wall in very difficult circumstances. The Grange is certainly doing its bit in encouraging tourists to visit and leave with a positive view of the City. It's a tough road ahead and this enterprise is to be congratulated.
