I think the website gives a false impression of this slightly uninspiring but very convenient guest house. We stayed for two nights while attending the British Birdwatching fair at Rutland Water and it was an ideal base.
The minimalist name plate over the door makes it a little tricky to find and after 10 minutes ringing the bell we opened the door to the gardens and received a frosty welcome from the owners for our audacity!
The rooms with the garden views would be much preferable to our roadside one. Breakfast was basic - no cheese or cold meats, just cereal, toast and yogurt. I love the convenience of making your own breakfast but it did mean we had no contact with the management after our arrival and no socialising with other guests. It felt like Disney's Beauty and the Beast, food kept magically appearing but we never saw a friendly face - there was even a large oval mirror in our room ...
For anyone travelling through and needing an early departure, I would highly recommend The Grange but if you want a little luxury and pampering, look again.
