Hotel is in the business district, so there is not much going on during the weekend. Not a lot of restaurants open over the holiday period, so the walk to restaurants is 10-15 minutes. Nearest tube station is Tower Hill or Aldgate. Gym/Spa is one of the best I've used in any hotel across the world, along with a pool and sauna/steam room. On site restaurant is pricey and average quality. Staff was not friendly or helpful..seemed stressed and not well trained.

Seemed to get a good deal for jus under £100 a nite. Stayed 2nites without breakfast as thought £20 pp for breakfast was very steep. Before arrival requested a high floor n early check in if possible. Arrived at midday n advised we hada room on 13th floor but not available til 3. So left luggage which was kept safe n came bk afta a look round tower bridge n monument jus 5mins away. Wen we came bk our room had bin changed 2 the 11th floor with no explanation as 2 why. Wen got in the room it had a good view but the bed was a small double n the bathroom was a disabled bathroom, very low sink n wetroom with horrible shower curtain hardly luxurious. Phoned down 2say not practical n was told wud ring bk in half an hour which she did n was given a room with a king size bed n much nicer bathroom but no view other than another building. Never did find out wot happened 2our room on 13th floor can only assume some1 else complained about the disabled room or another room n got our 13th floor room. Noticed on 2nd nite bed sheet hada small blood stain on which is not acceptable at any hotel let alone a 5* hotel but didnt complain as was so tired from a long day cud not be dealin with waitin 4some1 2 come up n change sheets. Curtain kept light out well. Bed a little hard for me. Didnt eat or drink at hotel so cant comment on this. Had 2ask for robes n slippers which did come up very quickly but i think these shud b in ur room at a 5* hotel. Pool was lovely altho jacuzzi out of use on 1st visit. Not many sunbeds 2lay on or newhere 2leave robes. Check out no problem n left bags safely on last day. Would stay again for same rate but not for full rate.

For value for money I would highly recommend you stay hear if you require an outstanding location and close to all the main attractions. The Clipper boat service for getting about much better than using the underground and stops 5 minutes away from the hotel. I will definitely be using this hotel again.

Room Tip: Go for the executive package overlooking Tower bridge. parking, full English breakfast, executive lounge with complimentary drinks and light bites all in the price.

Second time we have stayed at the Grange Tower Bridge and it once again did not disappoint. Our room had a terrific view of the Tower and Tower Bridge (13th floor) and was spotlessly clean - lovely bathroom too. We did have to make a call to housekeeping when we arrived as the sheet didn't cover the mattress well, only one pair of slippers and no English Tea in our room. Only small things that were sorted out immediately but a little disappointing we had to ask as this should have been checked earlier. Concierge staff extremely friendly and helpful and we were able to store our luggage before check in and after check out which is great. We love this area of London and find the surrounding streets extremely interesting and full of character and we would always in future stay this side of this city - yes, it's a small journey to the West End or Knightsbridge but with an Oyster card who cares? The buses are frequent and hotel very close to Liverpool St Station which is great for us. There was a mix up yet again at reception when we checked out - they had charged us for Saturday and Sunday breakfast (this happened last time we stayed there). So we had particularly asked the restaurant staff if this was included and were told yes they had our room number down for breakfast. Had we known we would have used Wetherspoons next door for breakfast. When I complained to the reception staff it was just unsincerely replied with a sorry it was not her mistake, when asked whose mistake it was she had no answer. A disappointment as this cost extra than we expected but I still think the hotel is great, and will book again in the near future.

Room Tip: Get a high floor with a lovely view if possible.

As a Christmas treat We took our family with 3 young children (4, 7 & 10 yrs) to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Drury Lane theatre and wanted a city centre hotel for couple of days. We booked in early autumn by which time our choice was surprisingly severely limited as most of the obvious hotels were already fully booked and so we opted for a more upmarket hotel (£600 B&B for 2 nights) than perhaps we would have preferred with the kids with us; without the kids we nearly always stay at the Doubletree Tower Bridge Hotel which we love.

The Grange was a little further 'out of town' but only a few minutes walk from the Tower Hill tube station so location wasn't an issue and very handy for Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. There is no on-site parking and so once you find the hotel in the road network (which took us an age because of various road closures due to engineering works) you have to use the nearby 'Minories' car park (NCP I think? and cost us £32 for 3 days parking) which is a short walk away but a very long winded and convoluted drive if you want to get your car back to the hotel....my advice is don't bother and carry your cases to the car park when you leave!

The hotel is clean and pleasant enough, our check in person was a little condescending (perhaps on account of the kids?) but all fairly efficient. Our rooms were interconnecting and were fab; well appointed, great en-suite, safe, mini bar, free wi-if, etc . One negative point was that we asked for a view....and got one straight into the office building across the street! Rooms were a good temperature without having to use the aircon and were well sound proofed as there was no internal noise at all. The lifts are all glass and located on the outside of the building so they give great views and are very quick.

Breakfast was not quite as we hoped; we opted for the continental breakfast. We had to wait to be seated both mornings as there were no tables free although to be fair we only waited a couple of minutes. Once seated, on both days we had to ask for tea spoons and also for tea and coffee (so fundamentally not 5* standard service) but service was efficient and polite once we asked for it. Breakfast choice was very ample and the breakfast area is nice and airy.

We used the bar area for a drink before we set off to town but didn't particularly like the ambience (well to be honest there wasn't any) and the lounge area seems like a gloomy afterthought. In fact I can't help feeling that the ground floor layout is all wrong; the entrance is off the Main Street but along a narrow walkway from the car park drop point and would have been far better located by the drop point itself and given more prominence to the entrance, lounge and bar area.

As usual we purchased one-day traveller tickets for the tube and argued about the pros and cons of taking out daughter in her pushchair; essential for most of the day but a real pain getting into and out of the tube. We opted to use it the first day and not the second and found it better without as long as you hold on to the kids in the massive crowds which were everywhere at this time of year.

As the older kids had only been to London when they were very young we decided to take them on an open top bus tour and purchased 'hop on hop off' tickets on the Big Bus tour (the brown buses). We bartered and got these for £50 including free unlimited river trips too. Both were really good and handy as a main bus stop is outside the Tower of London and the river cruise pier just behind it, both literally a few minutes walk from the hotel. You could avoid the need for tube tickets and just used the bus and boat to get about as long as you don't need to travel after 6pm (with kids this is marginal but for adults of course impractical).

I think The Grange hotel is good, reasonably well placed for getting about and the interconnecting rooms are excellent. The lack of on-site parking is a big negative (compared to most 5*) but I guess many tourists will arrive by plane/rail so will not be an issue for them. The communal facilities are OK but do not really entice you to spend any time there, other than the basement pool which is very nice. Overall I think it is a bit pricey for what it offers and although we would stay again if the kids were with us we would always still opt for the Double Tree Tower Bridge as our first choice if without the kids.
