“Three nights stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

When we arrived at The Grange, we were greeted by an extremely friendly and helpful receptionist. She took a great deal of time showing us a map of the surrounding area, finding out what our tastes were and recommending places to visit. We had decided to cut our stay down by one night and again this was not a problem to her and she dealt with it efficiently and without a charge. The man on reception later on was again very friendly and helped us to access the swimming pool and bbq and leant us equipment to use. The rooms were immaculate, cool and comfortable, with a pleasant terrace area outside for each room. The small swimming pool was clean and pleasant and provided a refreshing early morning swim.

My wife and I have stayed several times for personal breaks, and the company I work for (Greenline) use The Grange regularly.
We sometimes book on short notice and 9/10 manage to get a room, the motel is walking distance from the main street of Margaret River.
Rooms are a good size with TV, Fridge, Bathroom, Sofa & Chairs, Queen Bed (some rooms with 4 poster beds) and rooms are always excellent value.
We have had breakfast several times at the Grange and it has always been a great meal.
My wife and I have never had a bad stay at The Grange, and as far I know, none of my work colleagues have any complaints either, highly recommend
Cheers Paul & Teresa

Room Tip: All rooms we have used are fantastic and easy access and parking, they have a room with a Spa which...

Hello Nocky_SNR, sorry I didn't respond quite as fast as usual but I took a couple of days negotiating my way through TripAdvisor's new security rules. Oh well.
Anyway, we'd like to thank you for those kind words and we are pleased that you and your colleagues have enjoyed your many stays with us, the' guys and gals' from Greenline are always a friendly bunch and are always welcome at The Grange.
Thank you for taking the time out to come on TripAdvisor and post the positive comments that you made.

A friend and I stayed at the Comfort Inn Grange for a weekend in Margaret River. The location of the hotel is very convenient to the main town in Margaret River, allowing an easy 5 minute walk into town. We were also able to make a last minute booking, which was nice. However, the actual hotel is fairly average. Nothing special but nothing too wrong with it. It has a very traditional style to it and is tidy and well-kept. The gentleman at the front desk was a bit rough and didn't greet incoming guests too well. We were pretty much handed the keys without too much information about the property and the workings of the hotel restaurant was not very well communicated. Breakfast is from 6-9 am and dinner is only served based on bookings. The pool was also shut and locked, and since it was a particularly hot weekend, it would have been nice to take a swim. Overall, I'm sure there are nicer places to stay in Margaret River, but if you're more concerned about location and price and less so about your room, the Comfort Inn isn't a bad choice.

Hello peenut557, thanks for your comments which were positive overall.
The couple of things you've picked us up on we'd like to respond to: First, the locked pool is an issue familar to anyone who reads these pages, for the record, one more time, we keep the pool locked, when not in use, to stop local school children jumping in and taking it over to the point where our own guests cannot use it. Sounds silly, I know, but that's what happens. Of course, the pool is available for guests to use anytime during daylight hours and reception will happily unlock it on request.
Second, I am the rough gentleman you would have encountered on the front desk! Sorry, if I didn't impart as much information and knowledge as I usually do, the reason would have been that my receptionist resigned suddenly and so in addition to all that I have to do I am also receptionist until we find a replacement (which we now have) and get the training completed (on-going at the time of writing).
Oh yes, breakfast is 7.30am to 9.00am just to set that straight.
We are glad that you otherwise enjoyed your stay, we thank you again for your comments and hope to see you again one day.
Rgds,
Richard.

My husband and I stayed at The Grange for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We had travelled all the way from Victoria, arriving quite late on a Thursday night. We had no problems with checking in late and the staff were very helpful. Each day we had a continental breakfast which was more than enough food! We stayed in a gorgeous room with a big lounge room, the bedroom was also very big and the bathroom was fantastic. Hot water and a spa meant that we were well catered for. Also, we used the laundry twice which was easy and very efficient. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, particularly sitting in the sun room for breakfast each morning. We stayed in lots of places for our trip, this was by far one of the nicest. Great staff, relaxed atmosphere, great proximity to the shops and overall a great place to stay. Highly recommended!!

Dear Jenny H,
Thank you for that review, which hit the spot for us, of course!
Firstly, let me say that we were very pleased that our small part in your honeymoon was successful for you and, secondly, just reiterate what we've said before, namely, that we have concentrated this year, particularly, on improving the things that people have commented that they wanted improved - those are the sorts of things that don't get a mention unless they are in some way deficient, we are pleased that those things haven't had much of a mention recently, so the Good Old Grange IS getting better.
Again, thank you for your kind words and we hope to see you again one day.
Regards,
Richard

Finding a place to stay in the Margaret River area isn’t easy. I highly recommend that you book a place before you go and not rely on finding a place when you get there.

I was looking for a place that was reasonably priced for 3 adults and went to Trip Advisor to see what was recommended. After finding most reasonably priced places ($110 / night for 2 persons) had been booked I came across the Comfort Inn Grange on Farrelly. After reading the mixed reviews I wasn’t too sure how it would be.

So my comments are: In the small entrance was located the luggage rack, bar fridge and the place for tea and coffee making facilities. Plenty of room for all of this to fit in. we had rather a large room, I thought, with a 4 poster double bed and single bed. Also in the room was a wardrobe with iron and ironing board, writing table, coffee table, window seat, two seater lounger and television on the wall. One might think that with 3 adults you would be on top of each other but there was plenty of room.

At the end of the day my most important requirement is a nice hot shower: definitely no complaints there. No one complained about the beds and we all enjoyed a good nights sleep. Extra blankets and pillows were located in the wardrobe. The only complaint I could possibly make was that there were only two towels, but a call through to reception fixed that in no time.

An added bonus for me was having the Catholic Church right next door, so I could easily get to Mass on Saturday night. It is a 5 minute walk to the main street. We never used the restaurant for breakfast or tea, so cannot comment on that. So very happy with our stay and would recommend it to others as well.

Dear JAC4880.
Thank you for coming on TripAdvisor to make your comments, and, of course, thank you for the positive feed back, both of which are appreciated.
You and other readers might be interested to know that when the Grange was built it was THE PLACE to stay in Margaret River. Of course, many newer establishments have sprung up since then BUT the good old Grange has stood the test of time, offering comfortable, spacious, well located accommodation, at a reasoable price.
Again, thank you for writing-in and we hope to see you again one day.
Rgds,
Richard.

We arrived early but this was not a problem and the staff allowed us into the room immediately but where warned that due to it just being cleaned the floors may be slippery,we found the room to be quite spacious,well appointed and very clean.The staff where more than helpful and the food in the restaurant where superb and because it was my Wife's Birthday we where treated to desserts "on the house" which was a nice and unexpected touch.Next time we visit Margaret River we will definitely stay at the Comfort Inn Grange and recomend it to all our overseas and interstate visitors.

We have been visiting the Grange for 10 years now and have always found the staff very friendly and very accommodating.
The location is excellant, a nice walking distance to the town,
and very close to all the wineries and pottery galleries.
we have always found our room to be spacious and very clean.
We will always stay there.

Dear officewitch,
Thank you for coming on TripAdvisor to give us such a good review, moments like those bring a little sunshine into our lives.
The Grange is an institution and we have quite a few clients who have been coming since even before we owned it (8+ years).
I am away from the Grange at the moment but I will be speaking to staff later today and will relay on your kind comments.
Regards,
Richard.
