Pros: Cheap ...for in the lakes beautiful main building in truly beautiful setting Near to Cartmel for the racing (near by car NOT by foot) Good breakfast food Cons: Cheap. Wood chip wallpaper covered in what looks like a gloss paint, single glazing, basically the whole site looked like it was in dire need of modernisation. Small and pokey rooms.... More

When I first saw the Abbot Hall Hotel, I was struck by a strong feeling of deja-vu, although I've never been there before. I think I may possible have seen a picture of it on my Grandma's wall in the way-back-when. The house was built in 1840, on the site, it is believed, of a building raised by the monks... More

Kents Bank, Grange over Sands is a good base to explore the Lakes District and Abbot Hall is reasonable accommodation is you are on a budget because accommodation is very expensive in peak season. The rooms were by no means luxurious and beds had seen betters days but the Hotel's facilities are generally good which includes free parking. If operating... More

Genuinely don't know where to start. We were booked this hotel as we were working in Barrow and this hotel is cheap and close(ish). Upon arrival it became obvious this place is a Christian Guild place, which promotes communal dining, and a community spirit, I'm a 22 year old travelling on Business, so not what I wanted. The room was... More

Nice place to stay. Went to collect my wife who spent the week there with her mother and sister. Their lodge looked brilliant. As a late booker I was in the Bungalow which was all right if inelegant. Staff were helpful. Location glorious. Swimming pool heavenly-after a day's walking in scorching heat. My wife wants to go there with me... More

we booked a double room with a shared bathroom. we often book shared bathrooms and it really brings the price down. we didnt really see the hotel itself as we were shunted off to the 'bungelow' which is basically a really old building with poor decor and a dirty bathroom! I used the toilet but didnt shower as it looked... More

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

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.
