Booked here for one night whilst walking through the area. The pub/hotel occupies a central position in the town. Its glory days are past. As other reviewers have commented the hotel side entrance is closed and access is gained through the less than salubrious bar. The staff were genuinely helpful. My single en suite room was comfortable, clean and quiet.... More

We stayed here as it was not far from the Fisherman's Retreat where our daughter was holding her wedding reception. Although the young lady on reception was helpful the entrance is incredibly shabby and the rooms had not been cleaned properly with rubbish from previous occupants left in drawers. It is clear that the place has recently been refurbished as... More

I booked this hotel for my wife and kids for the weekend (11th and 12th July 2014) as I was staying with a friend who had no more room! It was booked via a third party and breakfast was supposed to be included; turns out it wasn't, and it gets worse from there on. the hotel itself smelled musty, particularly... More

I agree that the ground floor is a pub. The hotel entrance is kept closed for the security of the guests but there are 2 doorbells which can be heard from all areas of the building. This means guests can gain access without having to go to the bar area. There is also a direct contact number for the manager... More

A last minute need to stay in Ramsbottom saw me return to the Grant Arms after many years. Walking into the now, unkempt, dirty bar full of drunken youths is not the best welcome( entry to the hotel part was locked) Also walking up unlit stairs with a heavy bag was no fun. Upgraded to a double from the originally... More

I would strongly advise you alter this review, although I accept constructive critisim and can also admit to faults, I refuse to believe anyone who has stayed here as had an issue with insects biting them! Our rooms are cleaned daily, Bedding is brought in from an outdoor company and is sterile. Never have I heard 1 person suggest such... More

Stayed at Grants Arms Saturday night.room was ok and we had a huge bathroom. Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order. You can see that this was once a lovely hotel and pub but it now feels rather run down. The pub prices were cheap, but the only other drinkers seemed to be just the local alkys even though England...

We wanted a b&b to stay as we were visiting family and also had tickets for the Theatre Royal in Ramsbottom and The Grant Hotel was within walking distance to the Theatre, so we decided to book 2 rooms to stay in for 2 nights . The staff were very friendly and helpful, considering they had to run the bar... More
