I had been given vouchers for a deluxe break for my birthday so book the Blackwell Grange for a 2 night break. The pictures of the hotel looked great so I was really looking forward to it. The receptionist greeted us in a very pleasant manner and was promptly booked in. Then we went to our room which to be... More

The owners must spend a lot of money to get this fine hotel back on track! The outside fabric of the building is crumbling and insufficient gardeners are employed to keep the grass and hedges under control. Within, the staff are in serious need of training. Reception have a "superiority complex" which is strictly 1960s and I saw one barman... More

We stayed for a two night break for our wedding anniversary, and upgraded the room. The room we were given (609) was very good - tons of room, very comfortable bed, very clean, and quiet, being in the Cottage, just across the drive from the main building. The staff at reception were very helpful and friendly. The evening meal was... More

My wife and I visited Blackwell Grange on an overnight package deal for our anniversary, we were over joyed at the upgraded room we were given and the special surprise dessert which the chef made for us! All the staff went out there way to please and the room and hotel were spotless and we would definitely go back again!

We visited Blackwell Grange on a two-night visit on our way to visit our son and his wife. My wife has a trouble walking long distances, so we'd asked for a room not too far from the centre of things, and that is exactly what we got. The food was very good in the evening, though it took a while... More

We have stayed at the Blackwell several times and the greeting on arrival is always good, front of house staff are treasures who make you feel very welcome. My wife and I asked for a ground floor room as near as possible to reception as we both have problems walking any distance, we were given a room (111) entirely suited... More

Stayed here for work. Parking outside and it's strange as it's fairly central but seemed in the back and beyond - thought that was lovely. It seems to be used for weddings a lot which isn't a shock as the grounds were lovely. The hotel inside was a bit tired in places but the hotel isn't a modern hotel so... More

This is a lovely setting and the staff were exceedingly helpful over an issue with room choice. Also tried very hard to get my local paper for me! There were weddings on but not intrusive at all-nice to see the glam!
