“High Standards at The Grange”
Reviewed November 3, 2010

A superior B&B tucked away in a quiet part of Keswick. It’s quite cosy but without being too intimate. Our room (No 6) was a decent size with a very comfy bed. The bathroom was clean and spacious with plenty of hot water for a soak in the tub after a day on the fells. It feels like a well run establishment an impression confirmed by the enthusiastic and highly competent staff. A good yardstick for us is how well they cope at breakfast with our somewhat complicated order (some might say fussy). Perfectly, it turns out, on both occasions. Highly recommended.

We have stayed in the Grange on a number of occasions over the last few years and it is wonderful. The rooms are beautifully decorated, most importantly, warm and comfortable. We have slept in a few different ones, but I loved the bath in Room 2, especially after a long walk. This time Mark and Sally weren't around, but their deputies did such a brilliant job we wouldn't have known. The breakfasts are great and I love the fresh fruit as well as the eggs benedict! My husband enjoys his full Cumbrian! We were sorry it was only two nights this year, but we will be back next year!

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff were extremely helpful, the food was perfectly fine and within walking distance to downtown Keswick. The walk up the hill at the end of the day was tiring, but a 5 minute taxi drive solved that problem! The only complaint about most B&Bs in the Uk is that no-one supplies face cloths so I had to buy my own, but if thats the only problem then its nothing. I would thorough recommend staying here.

Thank you for this review - I would like to advise that we do supply two quality facecloths in all rooms. They are in the nice ceramic tray on the dressing table. Perhaps the selection of lovely, complementary 'Gilcrist and Soames' toiletries were hiding them!
For future guests - if you have any special requests at all, please dont hesitate to ask one of us - someone is always available to help between 7.30am to 10.00pm

Quality accommodation. The Grange surpassed all our expectations. The rooms were immaculate and had every possible comfort. The owners were welcoming and friendly without being obtrusive and the staff were efficient and helpful. The breakfasts were outstanding! We have stayed at many hotels and B & B's throughout the lake district but rarely come across one of this exceptional standard. We will definitely be back.

A real gem! The owners work actively with the staff to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere and demonstrate a clear commitment to quality - in the rooms, at breakfast (which is excellent) and in general.

The location is quiet, yet not far from the town centre, with adequate private parking space.

Highly recommended.

Outstanding hill top views down to Keswick and Derwent water. Its position on the edge of Keswick made it really easy to drive to avoiding town traffic while it was in close walking distance to and from the centre. Lovely veranda catches the sun in late afternoon.

Breakfasts were top notch.

All in all a very high quality hotel/b&b.

After having two trips to Greece cancelled Jackie and I booked onto the Grange for one night at short notice and found to our delight one of the best small hotels we have ever stopped in, in the Lake District.
The building was fantastically located 10 minutes downhill in to Keswick and 20 minutes back up the hill but no problems, the staff were great and could not do enough for us, the rooms spacious and imaculate with wonderful view and a breakfast to die for.
Our only complaint was that we were limited to one night only and would have loved to stay longer which we will on our return.
Definitely a "little gem".
