Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've been here on numerous occasions in the last few years and have noticed that the place seems to be letting its standard slip on numerous issues. The rooms still need TLC desperately and most rooms/lounges/restaurant/ communal areas are outdated with shabby wornout furniture and carpets. The quality of the food served and the choices has in my view dramatically reduced if staying for bed and breakfast/ dinner. I cannot comment on the restaurant itself as always stayed as food included. The food previosly was always well prepared and delicious and well presented too, but recently seems more suitable for a school canteen. Food was sloppy and cold and tasteless. The dinner plates have definitely shrunk in size, I presume that is so you cannot help yourself to too much food.Personally I think the prices charged are far too expensive for the quality and service received. The hotel seems to have lost its character and charm and the service that made me return time and time again, safe to say that I won't be returning again.

This period hotel, in the sleepy township of grange, is a super example of the Victorian age, The rooms are big, with private facilities, second to none. Tea/Coffe making, and biscuits supp;ied. The only downside was the television reception only able to get BBC1 and 2, the rest pixelated.
The public rooms delicately decorated with very comfortable sitting furnature. Wonderful large grounds with walks to suit all.
The location is a little away from the town centre so alengthly walk or car journey required.
The staff were dressed smartly, very helpful, knowledgible and eager toassist.
The food both for Breakfast and evening diner, of very high standard, with plenty of choice, The main course being carvery style, and brackfast buffet style.
The hotel also catered for dogs with some rooms especially for them,
All in all an excellent experience, and well worth a trip, with special offers available for certain times of the year.

We went here on a coach holiday from 23-27 December. Our room was clean, the bathroom was large with a walk in shower that I had requested and looked like it had been refurbished not too long ago. The only thing I would say is that the shower could do with a shelf to put shampoo etc on as we had to put it on the floor of the tray which is not ideal. I liked that they had a rubber mat because I am always wary of slipping.
The staff where all very pleasant and always had a smile despite having to work long hours because there weren’t many of them to do everything.
Due to covid there was no room cleaning while we were there but, personally, I don’t mind that as we could leave towels outside the room to be changed and tea and coffee etc were left in a plastic bag by the door every day. They even left Christmas presents for everyone which was a lovely touch.
The meals were quite good but a couple of times there wasn’t anything I liked on the menu. I didn’t like having to queue for the main course at dinner and thought the servery was far too small and with only one person behind it to do everything wasn’t ideal. Considering the average age of the coach parties I think this could have been better organised.
We went for a walk towards the woodland walk and had to pass a block of scruffy garages which were filled with old rubbish, not giving a good impression and blocking the view.
Overall our break was a mix of good and bad and unfortunately we wouldn’t go back.

We visited on the 4 day Summer special deal. We had bed, breakfast and evening meal plus a complimentary steam train ride for a very reasonable price. The hotel is a little worn round the edges but has a lovely lounge to sit in on an evening and we had two great singers as well. The views from the dining room are spectacular. Nicely kept grounds to sit in nice weather. Evening meal is a basic carvery with a choice of starter and sweet and coffee, breakfast continental or full English. Staff are pleasant. Not super luxury but comfortable and with its own personality. We have been coming for quite a few years and we are booked for the tribute weekend in October and Twixtmas breaks. We hope to be coming for many years to come.

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary, very disappointing far too overpriced you go to a hotel to be pampered, this was not the case i know Covid doesnt allow this like having our room cleaned beds made rubbish removed toilet cleaned, just didnt happen so should be reflected in the price, set meal was rubbish,asked to swap chips for mash, told dont think so, will have to ask chef. We were woke very early every morning by a very loud screeching by resident peacock sure it was under our window. Paid for afternoon tea via Groupon, told couldnt have it as had to give 48 hrs notice really!!! Its a very expensive hotel, why need notice for a few sandwiches and cakes?, the only nice member of staff was the manager when checking out, who menyioned the peacock as a joke and offerred an upgrade next visit which wont ever happen totally rui ed our anniversary brake. The need to look at their prices
Directly behind me on window ledge which wad filthy was dead files at breakfast time never ate in there again

I love this grand old hotel and we were desperate to get away for a break.
It’s fair to say I felt a little nervous of the covid situation, but upon arrival any anxieties very quickly disappeared as it’s very evident that they are putting customer and staff safety at the top of their agenda.
Clear floor markings for social distancing from the moment you enter. Hand sanitiser is readily available throughout the hotel. Tables and chairs are spaced out, both in the lounge and the restaurant with staff wearing suitable ppe where required all felt very reassuring without taking away the lovely atmosphere of the hotel.
We only stayed for a couple nights as we weren’t sure how things would be, but now we know, we can’t wait to go back.

Had a lovely three night stay here over the Feb half term. This has been our third visit and the first with a toddler.

Our room (on the second floor) had a great view across to Arnside, was large and had all the facilities you’d expect - t&c making facilities, free view tv and WiFi etc.

Staff were very helpful and accommodating, as we have found on previous visits. The little one was catered for - travel cot provided in our room and high chair in the dining room.

The food was fantastic (both breakfast & dinner) and once again we found we couldn’t manage the deserts as we were so full from the first two courses. This fussy vegetarian enjoyed every meal.

In the evening, you are shown to your table, asked for your choice of starter which is then served at your table (desert is the same). The main course is served carvery style with plenty of choice.

The little one enjoyed wandering the wide corridors down to our meals and being doted on by the coach load of pensioners who were staying there too.

Good value and we look forward to a return visit in the future.

The building, old world elegance, the view of the Kent estuary and beyond to Ingleborough, excellent service (why can't other hotels be like this?) and the most comfortable room all made it a pleasant stay. What impressed was the attentive service both in reception, and at breakfast in the majestic setting of what looked like the former ballroom. Toast (both brown and white) was brought immediately, without my having to ask (why can't other places do this?), and the coffee was good. A room like this deserves better furniture though; a large portrait of President Tito of Yugoslavia wouldn't have looked out place on the wall. but if the square, dark veneer tables were replaced by some elegant circular ones to complement the round pillars, and white tablecloths provided, it'd feel more Austro-Hungarian empire and less post WW ll communist state. Great hotel, though. Definitely would come back.

We stayed Monday to Friday as part of a coach holiday. The bad points were that despite telling our coach company and telephoning the hotel that my wife was disabled and could not get into a bath we were given a room with a bath. We had to get the room changed twice before we were given a fully disabled room. The next problem was that we found that there was no hot water available at the wash basin and we could not vary the water pressure. The following morning we discovered that running the shower for a time provided hot water both in the shower and the wash basin. Dinner the first night provided cold soup and cold dinner plates. There was no extractor fan in the bathroom and bing winter we did not want to open the window. This made horizontal surfaces very wet all day. The bedroom curtains require to be hung correctly . They should be secure at each end as drawing them made it impossible to keep out the light. This was a shame as they were good heavy curtains.
The room had twin beds which suited us and they were comfortable. There was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. The room was clean when we went in but the rooms were not serviced during our stay. The food was self service but there was plenty of it and mostly it was a good standard.
To sum up it was a very nice hotel and very spacious. It was out of the town but very secluded with lovely grounds. It needs a tighter management to correct the problems. Would we stay there again, yes especially if I was not in a coach party.

Stayed a week in August 2021. Had to cart luggage up three floors, through grotty staff quarters as all three lifts were out for the duration of our stay. Hotel had a number of tour parties of mostly elderly guests while we were there, several with evident mobility issues. Can’t imagine how they coped with all the stairs.

The only housekeeping service during a week-long stay was a bag of tea and coffee making items left in a bag on the door knob. Every third day, we were treated to an extra toilet roll. Towels were replaced when we asked but weren’t offered. Bedding on bed on arrival looked as if it had been dropped from a great height. Roof leaks in reception when it rains. Place is generally in desperate need of renovation.

On plus side, breakfast was OK. Good choice of hot and cold items and hard pressed staff kept buffet topped up even when the big coach party groups came in. However, we’d advised that one of us was gluten free so were disappointed they ran out of gluten free bread during our stay.

We’ve stayed in two other hotels in England in August and the service and housekeeping was far better in both the others. So the poor level at Cumbria Grand can’t be pinned on COVID.

My suggestion would be to make a quick call to the hotel.... and not listen to comments from people who consider themselves too good for this hotel. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the accommodation or the food for the prices changed!
