We stayed in a twin room for 3 nights booked through booking.com. We had to check in by ringing a mobile number but the process, although impersonal, was easy enough. Our room was right at the top, a little unfortunate that only one window opened making it quite hot but there was at least a fan. The room itself was... More

I booked this b & b last minute with booking.com without reading trip advisor. I agree with most of the comments posted. Other than the guy who served us breakfast and took our payment we never saw the owner. Key and parking permit were left behind the front door because the owner was working somewhere else. The entrance hall and... More

We stayed at Grantley House for three nights two weeks ago. Our advise is: Don't go there if you don't have to. The room was not cleaned while we stayed there. Towels, cups and glasses were not changed and the garbage was not removed neither from the bathroom nor the bedroom. The owners dogs were barking outside our window at... More

My Husband & I stayed at this B & B for just one night, thank goodness. The smell of dogs and disinfectant hits you as soon as you walk through the front door, not good. That was after I had phoned the number as instructed and spoken to the owner who advised that our key had been left for us... More

Stayed at this bed & breakfast on 26/06/14. On arrival nobody was present at the property - just a note asking for customers to ring a mobile phone number (lucky we had a phone and signal!). The owner/manager informed us that staff, at his other business had not turned in so he had to work there. We asked about the... More

We booked into the Grantley for an overnight stay, on entering the house, which i had to ring the bell, this was early afternoon, i was greeted by a young friendly man, but there was another older man sitting on the stairs, who wasn't at all friendly, don't know who he was, looked like a workman. We was lucky to... More

Grantley house exceeded all expectations.. The B&B was lovely with some original features still kept complimenting the modernised rooms which was clean and surprisingly spacious.. Morning breakfast is well worth stopping for alone with enough to set you up for the day. WIFI available which is a bonus too! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Less than 5 minute walk... More
