Last week I took my 18 year old granddaughter away to the Grange as a "Reward" spa break for getting her Uni place - she has worked so hard to achieve this. I couldn't have been more delighted with my choice of hotel. It is situated in the heart of Shanklin old village and looks like a Victorian manor house from the outside whilst the décor is restful and elegant and the welcome from Jenni as friendly as you could wish for. The restaurant is only open for breakfast, which is buffet style but there was an impressive array of choice - from cereals to full English. Our room was clean and comfortable with complimentary, good quality toiletries and fluffy white towels. (Don't forget to bring your own beach towels) The only shortcoming is the lack of a pool, but this is more than made up for by the range of therapies on offer- we opted for the reflexology and Indian Head massage.............wonderful. The hotel is situated in it's own, grounds which can best be described as "atmospheric" with trees, shrubs and flowers everywhere, not forgetting various statuary hidden amongst the bushes. It is a relatively short walk to the beach, although it is a steep climb back up again. I will definitely be going back there again - I might even take the husband this time!!!!
