I booked 3 nights' stay at the Grange Hotel for my boyfriend's birthday, following its recommendation in the Telegraph as one of the top hotels to stay in the UK for under £150 per night.
I booked a standard double bedroom, located on the ground floor overlooking the A-road outside. Unlike other reviewers we did not find this a problem; the building is old and noise from other rooms can be heard but not to a deafening or uncomfortable extent. The room was lovely and excellently decorated, as was the en-suite bathroom. One issue was that the water 2 mornings out of 3 was freezing cold - I imagine this was linked to others using the water at the same time before breakfast so this may be a common problem experienced by others.
The hotel does have a car park which is ideal to then leave the car and walk into the city centre each morning (15 mins maximum). However this is on a first-come-first-serve basis, we were ok but there are plenty of nearby car parks to use if this is a problem.
Breakfasts each morning were fantastic, we picked a different breakfast each morning, ranging from pancakes with warm maple syrup, smoked salmon and scrambled egg with toast and porridge with honey. The service was top-notch and we were made to feel welcome and looked after throughout our stay. Room service regularly checked on facilities in our room each day whilst we were out too - topping us up with biscuits and chilled bottled water which was a nice touch.
We will definitely stay again at the Grange and felt very lucky to have stayed there for 3 nights.
