Visited Blackwell Grange, upgraded to an executive room, only £20.00, beautiful view over the grounds. Staff were very pleasant and helpful although maybe 1 or 2 could have had a little more training. Had a meal in the restaurant, which was first class. A hidden gem which I would go back too.

Is beginning a much needed program of redecoration which will make it a great place for a romantic break or special occasion. But until this is finished it feels a little run down and shabby in some areas. Tip - Ask for 1st floor... More
