“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We loved our stay at The Grange. Our B&B room was beautiful and quiet even though it was at the front. The bathroom was large and well decorated. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was very nice and helpful. B&B is a short walk to downtown (however there are not a lot of options of restaurants and shops there since the earthquake) and the park. The internet connection was not good in our room given its location, but it was perfect in the lovely lounge. Would definitely recommend if staying in Christchurch!

Great location considering there is still not a perfect Central location in Christchurch due to the extensive earthquake damage which is still all around you. You can walk to the town center but you may have to take several detours due to ongoing street repairs. Having visited in 1968 I found it hard to find any familiar buildings. The destruction is so extensive in the central area. The spirit of Christchurch's citizens thrives as demonstrated by the the wonderful and helpful staff at The Grange. We stayed in a comfortable room on the ground floor of the Guesthouse. The room is spacious and quite suitable for disabled guests. The building is next to a traffic corner which can be a bit noisy during the day. There is a pleasant common sitting room and the continental breakfast was perfect.

Although we had a very brief stay in Christchurch, we enjoyed our stay at The Grange. The location was perfect, near the beautiful botanical gardens and a short walk to the center of the city. We loved our charming room with its balcony and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom has been updated, which was nice too. We had to leave early in the morning before breakfast began, but we were invited to have the continental breakfast and the hosts made toast for us as well. Everyone was friendly and most helpful, and we would definitely recommend The Grange.

Room Tip: We had room #4, which has a balcony in the front of the house; we liked that.

Stayed for a night before our early flight out of Christchurch. The room and furnishing looks new, spotlessly clean and bed was very comfortable. The lady who checked us in was really nice and friendly, orientated us to the area and helped us booked a cab to airport for the early dawn hours. Location is convenient and central.

I had a great time staying here... it's central, quiet, clean and spacious. The hosts were just lovely, the first thing that happened when I arrived was that I was welcomed and given a map of Christchurch, with all the things I needed pointed out to me. An added plus was getting free washing because I had stayed 3 nights or more.

Room Tip: None, they're all good

The Grange is a little more like a small European Hotel, rather than a cozy B&B. But we were more than satisfied. The host was helpful with information about Christchurch and places to eat. Breakfast was very good. Nice expresso. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. The location for getting around the CBD is superb. It was a little noisy first thing in the morning. We had a front room near the main street corner and had left our window open over night. We did appreciate being able to have fresh air.
