We have stayed here many times over the last 20 years, starting with our honeymoon. We have always enjoyed the warm friendly atmosphere & good hearty home cooking. Over the years we have seen several changes & upgrades none more so than this time! Our room was beautifully decorated with high quality ensuite shower, very welcome after long days exploring...

We stayed at The Grange as part of a walking journey in the Lakes. First the good point; the owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming. However, our accommodation was poor - the shower did not work, no heating in our room other than a fan heater. Our evening meal was considerably over priced at £25 per head for... More

The owners are definitely lovely and the food is often home grown. Room 6 (which we had) has been refurbished and has a thick duvet and sparkling ensuite shower room. The location is superb with Loweswater just down the road for an early morning swim with the lake to myself.

It's a lovely old Hotel which need urgently to do some some renovation. We took the room nr. 1. with the lake front side which is stunning in the morning if you feel like to get out of the bed, because the room is just freezing. Heather are prox. as old as the house. The owner are very very lovely... More

This hotel is more suited for the more mature traveller who likes the old fashioned traditional styled establishments. It has been in the same family hands for 60+ years and there is no doubt that it as a homely feel rather than a formal hotel feel. On the positive side you get a wonderful welcome with tea in the lounge... More

The location is stunning with a multitude of walks from the door but at £52 per person it was seriously overpriced. We spent one night at the Kirkstyle Inn which was wonderful, cosy and warm for a similar price then one night at the Grange which unfortunately was very cold with the heating not able to cope with the nights...

My Dad has stayed at this hotel at least 5 times. When we visit him there, we are struck each time by the relaxed lovingkindness of the owners. The (still-warm) scones served with (home-made) jam and (proper, not teabag) tea in a silver pot are SECOND TO NONE. Best of all, if the weather holds, we can sit in the... More

Despite its beautiful and dramatic location, this hotel is a real let down. From the outside it seems fine, but once you enter you soon realise that the premium that you are paying to stay in a room is somewhat of a rip off. The hotel is still stuck in the dark ages and is in desperate need of updating.... More

Fabulous location but hopelessly outdated and run down Large dog dominated the hallway and obviously had access to the kitchens.Bedrooms fussy , gloomy and overcrowded with furniture far too large for the room. Room very cold in spite of a warm day. Towels small and bathroom barely adequate. Food poor, vegetables overcooked and soggy, salmon overwhelmed by acidic sauce, soup... More
