The Grange is located in a good part of town just a short stroll to all activities. We stayed four days but were a little disappointed with our room which was on the ground floor on a noisy corridor and was certainly nowhere as nice as the pictures on the site would indicate. We found that the room alrhough quite large was quite gloomy and it overlooked the car park at the back. The bathroom was only just adequate and could benefit with more lighting. One big problem was the lack of air conditioning, our fault for not checking, and the weather was paticularly warm. We asked reception for a fan on our first day and were advised that they would chase one up. However, the next day we had to ask again and if it were not for the fact that the manager happened to be walking through reception at the time I don't think we would have ever received one. He delivered it to our room himself which we appreciated. We weren't all that comfortable, given our ground floor location ,about having to leave our windows open at all times just to get some air flow. I would therefore recommend that if you decide to stay at this hotel that you check thoroughly which room you will be having and don't accept anything on the ground floor. The problem however with a higher level will be carting your cases up the stairs as there was never anyone around to do this. On a happier note however the breakfasts at the hotel were more than adequate and we ate several times in the restaurant and it was extremely good. With a little more attention to detail this hotel could certainly go up a notch.
