We returned once again to this Guest House and had a wonderful few days being well looked after by all the staff and in particular Trisha. The food was very good and the accommodation excellent. We were so sad to hear about Annelise but she would have been very proud.

The staff were very friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. We enjoyed scrumptous breakfasts each morning on... More

The Grange is a wonderful guest house close to the airport however it is in a beautiful garden setting with close proximity to the northern beach area and great restaurants. Management were fantastic so helpful and we had a beautiful breakfast with lovely fresh coffee muffins to die for. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it.
