We stay here every Christmas while visiting family in Auckland. With two young children, Christmas has the potential to be an incredibly stressful time, but Pat and Bernie go out of their way to make us feel so comfortable. Bernie has even brought my washing in for me when we arrived home late one evening. It was all folded neatly and placed on our table! Every Boxing Day, we are invited to their annual BBQ that they put on every year for their guests. It is an affair not to be missed!
I cannot recommend this motel highly enough. It is very affordable, particularly for a family group but it is the personal touches (muffins, teddy bear, Christmas basket from Santa) that make the Grange shine above anywhere else we have stayed in New Zealand.
Alot of other motels could do well to emulate what Pat and Bernie do - but to us and many others by the looks of the other reviews - there is only the one unique Grange Lodge Motel.
Thank you and we look forward to next year's visit!
