“Excellent”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Stayed in Room 1 for 3 nights for my 40th Birthday and had an excellent time. All staff very welcoming and friendly, nothing to much trouble at breakfast time. Breakfast is fantastic and there is plenty to set you up for the day. Brilliant views from patio and windows. Rooms serviced every day we were there and drinks and biscuits replenished daily also. It is in an ideal location for Keswick town, there is a small hill to climb on the way back but nothing too bad, you can get a taxi. Keswick has lovely shops and plenty of eating places, you'll be spoilt for choice. The George is very nice especially the half a cow pie, we also ate in The Inn at keswick also very good and on the last night we spent in Casa Bella which is very friendly and the food is excellent. I highly recommend Keswick and most of all The Grange, it is just perfect and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Room 1 is fantastic as it is well equiped with settee and is very spacious.

This is the second time we have stayed here. It was really lovely again. The dining room has been done up and somehow the views look even more fab. We were given gorgeous home made chocolates to try out and every afternoon some home-made cake was available to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. Breakfast was just lovely - fresh and tasty - the eggs yolks for my poached eggs were a lovely sunshine yellow - free-range does make a difference. I also tried the smoked slamon and scrambled egg which was gorgeous - made to order - not lumpy and only just warm (which I have experienced lately) but creamy, hot and fresh. Lovely staff and a lovely place.

Extremely friendly and helpful stuff, great breakfast and treats throughout the day. Very clean and quiet room with beautiful view. We stayed in room 5 which supposed to be the best room.

I usually write in depth reviews, but for The Grange Country House I will keep it short:

Pros:

- immaculate, clean, comfortable with tasteful period decor.
- very friendly staff, the best, always smiling and engaging in conversation.
- a breakfast to die for: hot, fresh, tasty, perfectly cooked with home made apricot jam for the toast. The pots of coffee were fantastic.
- quiet with double glazing in the room.
- perfect base for Keswick and north lakes.
- tremendous attention to detail, right down to the chocolates in the room, the folds on the bed, the positioning of soaps, toiletries etc. and a bathroom so clean you could have eaten your dinner off the floor.
- free WiFi with good signal strength which was great for relaxing in the evening with the iPad.
- a wealth of tourist information on the ground floor for those that need it.

Cons:

There are no cons, but if I absolutely had to find something, the bed was a little too soft for my taste but that's purely me.

Summary:

It's perfect. Do not hesitate to book up. This is my second visit and I left saying to my girlfriend "that was just damn perfect, i'll miss that breakfast". I will not consider going anywhere else in Keswick, The Grange have got the perfect formula - please don't change it!

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful house we received superb attention and care. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was immaculate with a good variety of hot drinks and fresh milk and homemade cake available daily. The views were amazing. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. We will definitely return to sample some more of this brilliant hospitality.

Returned to the Grange and again enjoyed the best hospitality, beautiful room, outstanding breakfast. Extra touches like jugs of fresh milk & homemade cakes left in the hall are appreciated, as are the ample supply of drinks/biscuits, the bottled water & chocolates in the room. Nothing is too much trouble and the Hosts make you feel so welcome, genuine and helpful, they are very professional & make it all look so easy, but it must be hard work keeping standards so high. We cant wait to go back.

This was our second visit to The Grange which in itself is the ultimate compliment from us as we very rarely stay at the same place twice! Having good weather did help but it would have been nice to sit in the lounge when it is pouring with rain outside. The room was perfect and the breakfasts were so good we did not have to bother with lunches. The owners and staff make you very welcome and always have time for you, they are interested in what you do. The location is perfect, the steady uphill walk from Keswick helps burn a few calories off. It is a great base for walkers and you do not have to use your car. I would recommend The Grange to anyone.
