The Tudor Grange Hotel is in very short walking distance to a world of cuisine, therefore we do not offer evening meals.
There is a fully licensed bar.
Each room is ensuite and has free Wifi, digital television, tea and coffee making facilities and an allocated free onsite parking space.
Lovely Friendly Hotel we stayed two nights and could of stayed all week it was so quite nice comfy bed and great breakfast you will be glad you booked it we were. Rosie & Mark
DO NOT Recommend!! The hotel looks lovely however when we arrived we were not even greeted. When we finally met someone working at the hotel they were miserable and looked like they did not want to be there! They ignored us the first time they walked by and then we had to talk to them for us to get their attention, they just left us standing in the hallway! We got to our room and the size was reasonable, however the bathroom was awful! It was dirty, very small that you could barely fit in the shower and tiles virtually falling of the wall! Even though the hotel looked lovely, the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful therefore we do not recommend it and would definitely not come back again!
The Tudor Grange Hotel bathrooms were all refurbished during January and February with many rooms having brand new bathrooms fitted. There certainly are no tiles falling off walls and showers are standard sizes.
There is a large bell for guests to ring on the reception table if the receptionist is not present.
Upon arriving at the hotel, we were helped by a friendly receptionist with our luggage to our room, the deluxe double with a beautiful 4 poster bed in it.
The room itself is esquisitevely furnished, though the picture on the wall, would have been better to be more classically keeping with the decor of the room and needs to be replaced as is extremely wrinkled up under the glass. For a deluxe double, or any room for that matter, we were amazed there were no lamps on night tables. Yes their was a light above the bed, but only controlled by main light switch at the other end of the room. Luckily we had a torch in the car, as unfortunately we don't eat lots of carrots to see in the dark!
When we looked around the bathroom, we were disappointed to find, that there were 2 dark pubic hairs in the middle of the bath, which led us to believe, that the bath had not been properly cleaned from the previous occupants. On the brighter side, the bathroom toiletries were very generous and plentiful.
As soon as we arrived for breakfast on our first day, having been only the the 2nd couple to come down for it, there were only a tablespoon of dregs left in the cornflakes bowl, we had to ask for replenishment. On sitting down, the waitress asked for our breakfast order, before we had even looked at the menu. When the breakfast was brought out, one of us hadn't even finished our cereal, yet she wanted to take the dishes away as she was standing there with two plates of the next course. Perhaps she could have checked if we'd finished, before bringing them out. There was only one other couple in the room, so rushing wasn't necessary. It was noticed, on both of us having the same breakfast, one of us had 3 mushrooms the other 5, all uniform in size. This was also the case with other guests, same contents of breakfast, yet quantity of mushrooms, possibly thrown in at will. We all paid the same price ....Next morning one of us had two mushrooms the other 4, this not being very consistent. Understandable if we had different choices on our plates, yet again, some guests with same breakfast stretched to 5 mushrooms! On this 2nd morning, on coming down early yet again, being the first couple down, the young waitress excelled herself. She wanted to take our order BEFORE we had even sat down, were in process of pulling out the chairs, so had to stop midway and hastily order standing up. A lovely polite server, but a little training/customer service wouldn't go amiss. No one likes to be hurried to that extent!
We stayed at the Tudor Grange Hotel for 2 nights and went to the New Year eve’s party.
We both found the new year eve’s party, to be an acquired taste. We found the guests were very clicquey, and unlike other hotels we have stayed at, where there is a coordinator to encourage guests to mingle/ introduce themselves , this was not the case. We even stopped a lonely wandering gentleman and also later a lady, who were both alone and looked it! Interesting that last New Year's Eve 2010, a reviewer on tripadvisor, had pointed out exactly the same atmosphere, as if they had entered a private party of family and friends. At 11:pm, we gave up, went upstairs and watched New Year celebrations on Tv.
The management knew how many people to expect, yet they had put nowhere near enough chairs out for people to sit down on, so as soon, as a chair become empty, someone else jumped into it.
The yet again, eager young waitress, would come and attempt to clear plates as soon as someone would put one down on the table, even with a few morsels on them, that we eventually had to tell her that we and others were still eating!
Lastly, did we enter a ghost hotel? There were never any staff around in the two days we stayed, except at breakfast. We felt awkward to ring the bell for attention. Noticeably, their isn't a proper reception area, just a small table, with a landline & a mobile number to ring on it, so no one need man it. A reviewer on tripadvisor earlier in the year, can relate to this, when she attempted to enter for her stay there, but no one answered the door, and her calls went to voice mail. She stayed in a hotel opposite for the night. We couldn't even tell you now ,who, was, or if there even was a manager and at a guess, the poised, graceful lady with blondish hair may be the owner! This looks and feels a grand hotel, but its not meant to be a part time hobby run by the owners. One should have full time reception in sight, offer lunch or dinner, or bow out gracefully and change the name to Tudor Grange B and B. A majestic place, not bad, but the odd tweak here and there and it could be amazing :)
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. The feedback on our breakfast is helpful. Our staff are trained to wait and keep service efficient but professional at all times. The full english breakfast again should always be uniform.
four of us spent this christmas break at Tudor Grange. From the start we all felt like part of the family, by the end of our break we were part of the family. It was like having a great family Christmas with traditional family fun. We had a great laugh with other guests and the food was very good and plenty of it,
Had a christams party here in dec 2011 for 35 people. Fran and her team were very helpful from the time of booking right through to the party finish. The venue is excellent, All the christams meals came out hot and were excellent, The bar service was very quick and not over priced. We booked the four poster bedroom with balcony which is a large spacious room, such a good price for such a lovely place. Then a nice hearty breakfast to start the day. Well done to all the staff, looking to book again for next year.
