Hi KYM, Thank you for your kind reviews above. It was really nice to have both of you stayed at The Grange. I have to explain one thing you mentioned about the rate. The first time you stayed for three nights, so the rate we offered special rate for you. And the second time you booked is one of motel unit which is smaller and lower in price than executive studio unit you stayed first time. I am really appreciated that you enjoyed your stay and breakfast at The Grange. Hope to meet you next time when you visit Christchurch. All the best! Regards, Kimberly and George

view to the courtyard... Even though right on the courtyard it is still surprisingly private and the blinds on the doors are such that you cannot see in from the outside but you can see out. Well done!!!
Beautiful and large bathroom with heated floors.
Room door from the courtyard.
I agree that you should contact The Grange directly. We got excellent rate and service when we did that. Not a fan of Agoda, what you describe is not uncommon!

Good Morning Jeff, Thank you very much for your inquiry. Is this booking request for December? If so, I do have an Executive Studio available for the 2 nights and we are able to add a roll away bed for the extra person on the second night. Please e-mail us directly if you need any further assistance. Best Regards, Eva.

"Ground floor rooms are larger & have better facilities."
"All rooms are unique and quiet."
"There is upstairs or downstairs. I would be happy with either..."
"We liked the downstairs room because you could step outside and enjoy eating at the picnic tables"
"Motel rooms outside of the main house"
