Lovely location just near to the tramway or easy walk into the city center. Free WiFi however not that fast. Could be that we where long away from the transmitter. Quality swayed. Nice rooms with fridge that had all you needed if you so wish. Good breakfast. Good service.

Clean and comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff member on checkout which was refreshing. Will definitely stay again. Fire alarms went off at night, not sure why, but guess that's life! Location is perfect, easy walking distance to the central city and also Hagley park is just across the road.

The Grange was perfect for my family! We stayed in the motel and it is 100% treated as part of the B&B. The motel units are just behind the big house B&B in the courtyard. Everyone at the grange was friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious!! The location was perfect, close to many restaurants (try Cookin with Gas) and shops...

I stayed just one night in one of the motel units, but would have happily stayed longer. The location is very central and my unit was quiet and restful. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I plan to stay at The Grange when I'm next in Christchurch.
