Positives: 1. Great breakfast - very good selection. 2. Service from the 2 elder gentleman was top class. 3. Great location - very easy to get to Bury. Negatives: 1. Dinner was very poor and overpriced. A 3* hotel should not charge for vegetables. 2. Flies everywhere especially in breakfast room- not pleasant. 3. Grubby walls and doors - needs... More

Hotel and gardens have the potential to be beautiful but are sadly tired and lacking any finesse. Log cabins look fab but are very basic inside, comfy bed though! Food ok but nothing special. Service was good on the whole. Slightly disappointing overall.

First impression outside was terrible with traffic cones in sight under the windows dead shrubs in pots . For the time of year no flowers were visible .... More

After booking our wedding at the grange in march 2013 it worried me slightly when I read some reviews and thinking we had paid a large deposit what had we let ourselves in for from some of the reviews. I need not have worried. I personally do not have a single bad word or experience with Vipul in the slightest.... More

We stayed here last year for a wedding. Pre warned that we would be above the function room and should expect noise and we was fine with that. But on entering our room we was gobsmacked at what we had just paid £120 ish for one night! Although very very clean it was much much more basic than b&b's we... More

Lovely half timbered building, nicely decorated inside comfy chairs and sofas. Staff lovely they could not do enough. Relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, quiet and serene. The lovely gardens out the back reflected the rest of this lovely hotel relaxed and full of flowers and greenery. We had lunch and wow what a surprise! Three courses presented exquisitely and so delicate... More

The hotel has great character. Our room was extremely spacious (2 double beds!) but at least one couple in our party of 13 had a very tiny and cramped room. We eat at a local pub in the evening (The Victoria, which was good pub grub) as the menu here seemed very pricey for us. Breakfast for OK, but the... More

We got married at the Grange in February and overall it was a very underwhelming and disappointing experience. I have sat down to write a review so many times but I end up getting so angry at how poor the service was that I end up deleting it! Positives: Lovely breakfast Gorgeous rooms Lovely venue - the building is a... More

We recently held a family event in the Banqueting Room. The owners of the Grange could not have been more efficient and helpful in the organisation and the running of the event. Everything ran smoothly and on time, anything we suggested or asked for was immediately actioned. Some of our guests stayed at the Grange and they only had good... More
