We spent an enjoyable couple of days at The Grange in March 2013.
Our room (11) was very comfortable, clean and well presented, though the bathroom could have done with a proper radiator, rather than just a heated towel rail and a fan heater on the wall. Perhaps we were unfortunate, as the two days we spent in Keswick were among the coldest we can remember in the Lakes (certainly for March), and a warm bathroom under such circumstances is a must.
Nevertheless, the bedroom was quite cosy, and there is no denying the warmth of the reception from our hosts. There was homemade cake in the lobby each afternoon which was a nice touch, and a separate room showing contemporary works of art.
The real star for us though was the breakfast each morning. We each had a delicious full English one morning and eggs Benedict and smoked salmon and eggs respectively the next, all freshly cooked to order. There were cereals and fresh fruit with juices etc to start of course, but also porridge with banana and brown sugar too, which was great, and the service was prompt and friendly.
Perhaps we'd try one of the other rooms next time, maybe in summertime, as it would be lovely to sit on the terrace out front as the sun went down. We would certainly recommend The Grange, and would definitely return – it would be worth it for the breakfast alone!
