I have just returned from a two night stay at the Hackness Grange. This was with a party of six friends. Once a year we like to meet up and spend a weekend together which I usually arrange and this year we opted for this hotel. Prior to going I had read the other reviews and was feeling a little cautious, particularly as we were going on my recommendation. Having said that, we were not disappointed. To arrive in the village of Hackness and see this beautiful house by the lake is quite magical. Of course, this hotel is not yet completed. The present owner has embarked on an ambitious refurbishment and rebuilding scheme and parts are not yet completed. We were staying in the Courtyard, which is situated some distance from the main house. This is a purpose built block of about 30 rooms on two floors, but in keeping with the character of the main house. Our room, although small, was very comfortable. It had recently been decorated and the decor was fresh. The bathroom although equally small, was more than adequate, although it lacked a pull curtain (only net) and at night on the ground floor this made me somewhat uneasy. Although it is not possible to get a phone signal in the area, the television reception was excellent. Part of our stay included dinner on two nights and an optional free sunday lunch. The choice of food on both nights was good.
Although I do agree with a previous review that the hotel was a bit dark in places, the dining room in particular, it did have a feeling of grandeur enchanced by the period furnishings and coal fire and although it would definitely benefit from more lights, it had the feel of dining by candle light!!
I think that this hotel has great potential and I am sure that when it is completely finished it will be even more delightful. As a group we would certainly return.
