Shockingly, I have very little to say about any negative aspects of this hotel, which is very unusual for me. The Grange is like an island of serenity on, well, the Isle of Serenity. We loved the beautiful house, rooms and big garden, the choice of activities, the location, and the very friendly staff. Any minor inconveniences were more than compensated for by the friendly, caring attitude. Staying at The Grange is not merely staying in a hotel, it's a whole holiday experience.
The hotel itself offers plenty of opportunities to relax - my room at least was very quiet and comfortable. There are 24/7 tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits - what a nice touch! Other than a big garden, including an open terracce as well as more hidden corners, there is a big games room with books, films, board games, guitar, comfortable couches, etc. The decor of the whole place is artsy and tasteful.
The location is excellent - just between Shaklin town centre and the picturesque Old Village, minutes away from several restaurants. The seafront is also a couple of minutes' walk downwards away.
The hotel breakfast was nice, and the staff very friendly and helpful. As much as I'd like to see other parts of the Isle of Wight, The Grange will certainly tempt me to come back to Shanklin!
