The Grange at Oborne is situated in a quiet rural area a bit outside of Sherborne. Our room, a deluxe double, was very spacious with French doors that led to a large deck overlooking the well kept gardens. The room was well appointed with a very comfortable four post bed and a sofa and chairs – really quite a nice room. Getting to and from the room involved several fire doors and several elevation changes that detracted a bit from the otherwise very nice facility. The staff was competent and efficient and got things done with a minimum of fuss but without the personal touches that a B&B or smaller establishment might offer.
The gardens were beautiful and well maintained – as you would expect from a hotel that does lots of weddings. Looking out over the gardens from your room or from the dining room is a treat.
Breakfast was served in the large dining room that although attractive, seemed cold as there were lots of empty, unset tables. The unset tables felt strange and in an establishment at this level were out of place. The breakfast was plentiful if uninspired – standard fare served competently but without much enthusiasm.
There’s little to find wrong with the Grange but at $250 per night it’s expensive and, while we would recommend the Grange, we would also suggest that a little research could probably produce an equally good experience at less cost.
