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

Have stayed in theis hotel several times and it has a good restaurant and bar but little phone signal and the room allocation can be a lottery as some are better than others. Could do with a makeover but otherwise is okay and staff are always friendly.

Ritz prices and Faulty Towers service. The staff were pleasant enough but obviously had no training or experience. The Boss spend his time on his computer behind the Reception Desk with his back to people. Our room was small with sloping ceiling and was in need of a makeover as was the whole place. Building itself has character and the... More

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
