Lovely hotel, well worth the price with the added bonus of a pool! ( which was very well maintained ) whenever we are back in Grange we will be back! The wifi not working in the rooms was a tiny downside but other than that it was excellent

Not a 'Mc.Travelodge/ premier/ holiday inn' so don't expect straight lines, identikit rooms and anonymous service. This place is like a very big B&B with plenty of character, superb breakfast, rather odd rooms, and generally 'different'. Its so QUIET ! and had the best sleep ever in a hotel. Shame I forgot my swimming kit - the pool looks great.... More

We booked a 2 night stay at this hotel in a superior double room. We made the booking through late rooms.com . We then received a call from the hotel to say they only had a superior twin room left so we decided that we would still go and accept ed. When we arrived we were given a room in... More

Accompanied by a whole host of fellow guests during an organised weekend at Abbott Hall I can only commend the venue for its food, friendly staff, gardens, facilities and overall atmosphere. The hotel is old world with modern rooms, fantastic food, glorious greenery with views overlooking Morecambe Bay, superb indoor 15 metre pool with separate children's shallow pool, ample parking...

Amazed for all the wrong reasons. Stayed one night. Room was on the small side with no TV as this is part of the hotel owner's communal ethos. We chose to eat out in the town as we were not aware at time of booking that the Hotel positively encourages communal dining together with other guests. Whilst offered a separate... More

We booked this room at a low rate and when we arrived the area seemed quite nice and the house itself looked great. The receptionist was efficient and we dealt with the payment quickly. We were directed to the bungalows which, from just one look, could tell was in need of some TLC. We entered the bungalows and were unimpressed... More

Very cheap for the location, when we arrived we found the rooms to be basic but comfortable and clean. Shared bathroom / washing facilities would benefit from some modernisation and possibly more, as 1 shower/bath for about 6 rooms isn't really enough. Lovely swimming pool that guests can use, very quiet and in lovely location, great price.

We have just come back from our stay at the log cabins at Abbotts hall, we had lodge 2. Fantastic value for money. Can't rate the food as we self catered but we were very pleased with how equipped the lodges are. Full of kitchen utensils, iron ironing board, washing hanger ideal for swimming costumes, Extra blankets for the kids... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is believed that the monks of Furness Abbey bought the land and built the first Abbot Hall around 1160.

Overlooking Morecambe Bay, Abbot Hall is set in extensive grounds which include a 15 metre heated indoor swimming pool and five self-catering pine lodges, accommodating up to 22 guests. Situated on the edge of the hamlet of Kents Bank, near to the Victorian resort of Grange-over-Sands, Abbot Hall is readily accessible by road or rail.
