“Weekend stay February 2013”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We booked to stay at Somerset House for 1 night only on Sat 2nd February as we were attending a family wedding nearby, I was so overwhelmed by Geraldine's customer care on the phone when booking even down to giving us precise directions, I phoned her back 5 minutes later and booked for my family to stay for 2 nights, even when I phoned again to ask for another room, she was very accommodating. Both Geraldine and Dave were very friendly and informative of the surrounding sights. Rooms had ample space, very clean and we all had 2 great nights sleep. Breakfasts were fantastic, great choice on the menu. We were even offered to have breakfast later on the Sunday morning as we had been at a wedding. Would definitely stay there again...

The Hotel was clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated and handy for the local attractions, shops and trips to the Lake District, Windermere and Ambleside also.
The power shower was worth the trip alone!

Payed a surprise visit to my sister, and had not booked anywhere - so happened to enquire here.
So glad I did - good rates, and Dave and Geraldine are the perfect owners.
My room was ideal, comfortable and sparkling clean - and as for the power shower - I did not want to get out of the cubicle!
Lovely comfortable bed and enough room for a 6foot plus person like me.
When I did venture out of the shower - I went down for breakfast - and I have to say that Geraldines home cooking is superb.
All in all - perfect hosts, good convenient location - and Dave provided a great little free parking tip. I will be coming back.

Just stayed for one night and it was very good. Room was warm, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was superb, with a good choice of dishes and generous helpings. Friendly and very good value as they had a special offer on. Would certainly stay again.

We stayed in November 2012 and found the rooms to be extremely comfortable and clean. The owner was most hospitable and we would definitely recommend it. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The location was just perfect for access to the town and surrounding countryside.

We went to Grange-over-Sands for a wedding. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. We got up a bit late the next day(!) and one of the owners insisted on making us some breakfast which was delicious. He then showed us where to walk for one of the most incredible views in the country. As we didn't have that much time before our train he then offered us a lift half way up the hill so we could get there. We were so touched by how much the guys here went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. Don't book a big hotel in this lovely town you will get so much more by staying in a B&B which has the local knowledge. Once you've made that decision I can't recommend this place enough!

Had a loverly relaxing stay at somerset house. The host is such a loverly lady and nothing was too much trouble for her. We had a family room which had ample space for our little one to play in . Our breakfast was gorgous, fresh food and a special little dish was created for our little one to enjoy whist playing with toys that were kept in the restaurant especially. Grange over sands is small and very quiet but its perfect for familys and within easy reach to all local attractions. Really hope to return to somerset house, and thankyou so much for a loverly stay.

Room Tip: our family room didnt have a bath, but am sure the other rooms do
