How rude! Their first big mistake.We smiled and introduced ourselves politely.On signing in we were handed keys... More

I would have liked to have rated this hotel higher, but there were a couple of problems and honesty needs to be reflected in this review. This is a lovely old style hotel, not over modernised in a great setting. I found the staff helpful and polite and the room quite acceptable. A few problems are to be expected with... More

Me and my partner stayed in the family room with our 2 children. On arrival staff seemed very rude and not very approachable. Room was very disappointing considering the price we paid for it. Shower trickled out which made it almost impossible to wash in! A lot of noise could be heard from our room including people being intimate with... More

Stayed here last night -what can I say -my back is still recovering! Beautiful location and impressive from outside -but inside really tired and dated. That in itself is not necessarily a problem -until you get into the rooms. We had the unfortunate experience of room 6 ! I have myself dumped better mattresses than the one we were expected... More

Upon arrival at The Grange for a friends wedding we thought the hotel was pretty nice. A good venue to hold a wedding reception. The young girls who seem to do most of the work from serving drinks to bringing in food for male staff to place infront of you, work tirelessly hard thoughout. Food was nice but not outstanding....

We recently held our wedding reception here. I couldn't fault the service provided by Vipul and his team. From the moment we arrived everything went to plan and Vipul made sure the day ran smoothly. The food was fantastic and we were able to pick pretty much what we liked for the menu. The rooms as previous people had mentioned... More

We spent the day here for a wedding and were concerned with some of the comments. We need not have worried. The hotel is shabby chic and does need a bit of TLC in places but it's still very pretty and welcoming. The staff are a little quiet but very efficient. The food was excellent and all the guests (approx... More

My partner and I recently got married at this venue on the 9th of August and I must say that we couldn’t have picked a better venue. The preliminary meetings were more than thorough as they thought of every detail from the general running of our day, right down to the way the food was served and presented (which I... More
