We spent a generally delightful weekend at the Grange. Our room (a classic double) was nicely decorated and although fairly simple, was easy on the eye in terms of design and a reasonable size. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and I was pleased that my ears fitted snugly between the bath taps when sharing a bubble bath: often a failing of many hotels these days. Breakfast was good and service friendly and obliging. My girlfriend asked for her bacon to be extremely well done and it arrived as cremated as she hoped!
We have a few gripes. We decided to celebrate our arrival in our room in rather a special way. We were therefore alarmed when the room door opened without a knock. I managed to fling myself off the bed towards the wardrobe and my girlfriend gave a shruggy smile to the member of staff, who retreated with apologies. Were I a lesser man this might have put me off, though the sliding of a neatly typed apology under the door ten minutes later when battle had recommenced provided the sort of comic moment we often enjoy.
The room was very hot. The back rooms cop the afternoon sun on hot days and we had to sleep with the window wide open.
But this is a nice place, a decent, slightly quirky hotel. I'd stay again!
