Nicely positioned, quiet family-run hotel.
Good levels of service and decent restaurant (serving huge portions!!!).

We needed a weekend away, and chose a return visit here. Standard rooms are good sizes. bathrooms are "wet", with shower but no bath. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Dinner excellent; breakfast was fantastic; great combination of cold and hot food. Best kippers I've had for ages.

We fell upon this hotel by accident. It's a small, beautiful inn in spectacular countryside with full dining and bar. Surrounded by rolling hills and farm land, our hosts were incredible. Dinner is delicious and reasonable. Fixed prices for a 2-course or 3-course. We were seated in the bar, offered a drink, and before being seated asked about our menu. Room was lovely, clean, with high end products. We would take our best friends here and will recommend this charming small hotel to many. Go for it!

Our honeymoon stay at The Grange was fantastic. We cannot thank the management and staff enough for providing us with a truly magical stay. The hotel could not do enough to ensure our stay at The Grange was special and our room was incredible with a four poster bed and private terrace. We ate at the hotel and the food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful.
 
The Grange at Oborne is a hidden gem situated in a beautiful rural location near Sherborne and we will definitely return in the future as the time we had there wasn't long enough.

I use to stay at The Grange when traveling for work and I always appreciated the nice ambient, the comfortable rooms and the perfect service. I also enjoyed the restaurant, which offers a good menu and a lovely and quiet atmosphere.

We visited The Grange as a group of 12 for a birthday party-most of us have traveled a long way to get there and had our expectations set high. We were not disappointed-the food was delicious, the service-very professional. The scenery is magical, as the garden is simply amazing! Highly recommended!!!

My husband and I chose to get married at The Grange. We had the most magical weekend, totally unforgettable. Our friends and family had travelled a long way to be with us and the management went out of their way to make everything just perfect.

The Grange is in a beautiful, tranquil country setting and from there on it only gets better. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are warm and very comfortable, every little detail to make everything perfect had been thought of.

We had a lovely family meal the day before our wedding. The service and food were excellent.

The wedding went without a glitch and everything was laid out beautifully. My only worry was whether I was going to remember the steps to our first dance. I didn't but nobody seemed to notice.

I would thoroughly recommend The Grange, and definitely hope to return soon to re-live some of those magical moments.
