“Two star farce”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Stayed at this property over the last weekend. Can only reiterate all the good that has previously been said by so many people. Very welcoming to us and our doggie. Food is as good as any cruise ship we have been on---sweets are to die for. Very homely. First class service. An absolute farce that this hotel is rated as two stars--beats many four stars we have stayed in.
Very highly recommended

This was our second stay at this lovely family-run hotel. Although it initially feels a little way out from the town, this is a bit deceiving as it is only 10 minutes walk on a path through the woods. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a blazing log fire, which was a delight to come ‘home’ to after a walk across the fells. The food is excellent with a good choice and very nicely presented. We had two children with us and as a family were made to feel very welcome. A very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money. We anticipate returning again next year.

we have just spent two nights at this hotel over the weekend. we couldnt fault this hotel from the warm welcome lovely clean comfortable bedroom and excellant food. The hotel is set in lovely grounds with lots of walks around. Lovely open fire in the bar area we were made to feel part of the family. Breakfast was great every freshly cooked and the evening meals were excellant.

This hotel wraps its arms round you and gives you a big hug

This is a lovely family-run hotel, nestling up the hillside a short walk away from Grange's shops and train station. Very homely and comfortable, we stayed in a good sized room which had a lovely view out onto the gardens.

The full English breakfast was great. Compared to other B&B breakfasts this didn't feel too heavy and it left just enough room for a few slices of toast. If you didn't want a cooked breakfast, there were good options for cereal, yoghurt and fruit including prunes and apricots. We were particularly impressed to find our room had been cleaned and tidied when we returned there after breakfast!

During a rainy afternoon we also stayed at the hotel for a pot of tea which was very relaxing sat in front of the log fire in the lounge/bar area.

We also ate our evening meal at the hotel on one night. This was, on the whole, very good although we felt the duck was a bit overcooked and mentioned this at the time. However, the slow cooked venison we ordered was pretty faultless; extremely tender and full of flavour.

All in all, a very enjoyable short stay; definitely recommended.

I stayed at this wonderful small hotel for 3 nights. On arrival I was stunned by the amazing setting of the building which nestles on the hillside above Grange over Sands. The extensive terraced gardens are brimming with beautiful flowers even at this time of year. Outdoor seating would provide fantastic views over the bay in warmer weather. The hotel is cosy with comfortable furnishings and an open log fire. My room was spacious and clean with an extensive range of toiletries and a well stocked tea tray. The most impressive aspect of this hotel was t he wonderful food. Breakfasts and dinners are cooked to order and I cannot imagine that you would have better meals in a 5 star establishment. The family owners were very attentive and I could not find anything about my stay on the negative side.

We stayed here in September arriving early Saturday evening, the family run hotel is located along a long drive and is situated at the top of the hill. Inside it is quite traditional, homely and the bedroom/bathroom are adequately furnished. The hotel also allows guests to bring their pet dogs in and considering I’m allergic to animals I had no problem because of the cleanliness of the hotel. Possibly we should have stayed for the evening dinner rather than visit Grange over Sands because we could not find anywhere to eat even searching on the internet. The closest place for food was a pub called The Rose and Crown we found via Tripadvisor 4 miles away, sadly we can’t give you a review because every table was empty but had a reserve sign on. After finally findingsomewhere to eat we returned and the hotel car park was nearly full with non residents eating in the restaurant, possibly this shows how good the homemade food is. Looking at the breakfast menu maybe we should have stayed for dinner.
Overall the hotel is really fine and based near to the local woods good for country walks. If you want a hotel and a complete resort to be very quiet and away from today’s busy life this is for you.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for three nights in August and had a most enjoyable stay. It is a quaint hotel, with beautiful gardens and well located at the top of the hill above Grange-over-Sands and ideal for a quiet stay. We were quickly and efficiently booked in and shown to our room, offered an evening meal which we took as it was a Sunday and didn’t know the area. The room we had was a little small but suitable for the short stay and the bathroom with shower was functional and clean. Perhaps the décor needs a little updating. We found the staff most pleasant and the food very good, both breakfast and evening meal. No wonder they have many non residents having an evening meal. The free Wi Fi was an added bonus. There is easy access to the fell either by walking or travelling part way by car then walking but it is well worth the climb to the top for the views over Grange and beyond. All in all a pleasant hotel to stay in for a short break.
