Only a few minutes walk to the Botanic Gardens, Museum, CBD, ReSTART Mall and more, you couldn't get a better location. The original house, now a B&B is a lovely late 19th century building and the motel suites at the rear have been built in sympathetic style. They are big and modern and very comfortable - king size beds, kitchenette,...

The staff here are lovely and the rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully presented. I stayed here for a work trip and would love to come again and stay for longer. A beautiful place and very close to the centre of the city.

I stayed in The Grange B&B for 3 nights. There's nothing not to like. Very nice house, great stuff and lovely room. Bed was comfortable, and also selection for breakfast was good. I'd definitely stay here again when back in Christchurch.

After a long trip, this was the perfect place for a good rest and a central place to start exploring from. I have rebooked for my last night. We had a lovely welcome, we didn't know where anything was and she was very helpful, no problems. The room had character and was very cosy.

Had a night at The Grange before heading out on the Trans Alpine. Was hoping to stay in the house but ended up out the back in the Motel section, probably that's what we booked ? Everything seemed OK and would recommend.

The Grange is a welcome retreat within the heart of Christchurch. Everything is within walking distance. Given that much of Christchurch is under construction there are not many places to stay in the heart of the city but I highly recommend the Grange. Breakfast is included and it is wonderful. Linda is totally awesome and helpful. There is parking for...

A beautiful house in the very heart of the city. We stayed in a studio apartment which had small hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and the necessary equipment to make a meal. The under floor heating in the bathroom was fab as was the huge walk in shower. The WIFI was free and worked well and the whole place was welcoming...

Stayed here for 2 nights, Linda and the staff are fabulous, very warm and helpful and the rooms are gorgeous, with nice bright clean decor and modern bathrooms. Very well located for visiting the centre of Christchurch and the restaurants and bars as well as shopping and tourist sights. Breakfast was fantastic as well - a real home from home!
