I am a group organiser and my walking club have just spent a very enjoyable weekend at the Cumbria Grand. Check in was first class, dinner at a great time as we are out walking all day. Everyone was happy with their rooms, the public rooms in particular were first class lots of space for sitting, chatting and dancing. Thanks... More

Originally this hotel was built by the railway company when the line was extended to Grange over sands.Now owned by Strathmore Hotels. It has undoubtably seen better days but is gradually being updated we were told. This is not a hotel for those looking for a romantic short break but appears to cater mainly for coach parties. The food was... More

The Cumbria Grand is an impressive building. It makes a good base for touring the area but it is not really practical to walk into the village as there is a long drive and a road with no footpath. Staff are very pleasant, friendly and efficient. Food was good both at dinner and breakfast. Everywhere was clean and cared for... More

We stayed in a superior room and had a good few across the golf course and bay. Our room was a shock as it was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It came as a shock because the rest of the hotel looks like it is in desperate need of some TLC. You can see the hotel has been very grand... More

Enjoyed a dance weekend here. Yes the hotel is tired in some areas but this just adds to the charm of the place. Staff are friendly & efficient. Our room was cleaned to a very high standard. Nice to have duvets & not wrestling with blankets. Breakfast was served buffet style & evening meal was buffet style for the main... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2014 for a family wedding taking place in the hotel next door (The Netherwood). The Cumbria Grand seemed an ideal place to stay based on proximity to the wedding venue. Unfortunately this hotel does not live up to its name and was a bit of a let down. The main plus point...

We had a perfectly comfortable and pleasant stay here in two single rooms, both at the back so views limited to the car park. Price not too bad and definitely a good base for exploring the southern Lake District. My bathroom was a little tired but my room was quite spacious for a single room and the bed was comfortable....

Thank you for your review and delighted you found it a comfortable stay.The rural area means that we have not got access to the latest broadband provider speeds but this is coming, so you are correct in saying that with a lot of guest online and the reception needs, the WiFi is slower at peak periods.

Staff were friendly enough but I honestly don't know what could be done to improve this sad, dingy, rambling barn of a hotel short of demolition. It's a depressing place with faded, marked, uninteresting decor and the gloomiest interior you could imagine. I kept thinking I should put the lights on in my room and then realising they were already... More
