“Adequate yet quaint ”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely stay. Equipped with the essentials and enjoyed the free wifi (who wouldn't!)

A few minor issues:
1. Kept hearing someone run up and down outside our bedroom late at night (approximately 9:00pm.) probably a staff member as it was not the sound of children's feet and there were barely any other staying patrons nearby.
2. We didn't appreciate not being told the truth as to why the restaurant was unavailable. We rang up twice and were told both times that the bus wasn't back yet (assuming the chef/restaurant manager was on holidays). Didn't bother ringing on our 3rd night. By the last night we were finally informed that the chef was quite unwell hence the reason for the restaurant being closed. It would have made it easier to tell us from the start as we are open and honest people. Obviously divulging details is unnecessary but a simple "our chef is currently unwell" would have sufficed. Being lied to is a huge disappointment to us.
Perhaps look into hiring a temporary chef? Nevertheless, we wish the person a speedy and healthy recovery.

Would like to add a couple of improvements:
1. Basic DVD player! Haha, TV shows aren't want they used to be and the weather constantly interferes with the digital channels.
You could make a small profit out of charging people $2 to rent a DVD if you had a small selection.

2. Maybe a toaster, basic cutlery and a microwave? As we had brought some food but couldn't eat it due to not having these facilities made available. Definitely have the basic cutlery as some families might buy a cake or something to nibble on when they come back to their room and don't like using their fingers!

Other than all that, it was a pleasant stay. Enjoyed the old-style design the room had.

Would also like to thank the cleaners as they did a superb job! Came back to our room each night with our beds neatly made, PJs placed under the pillow and my teddy placed in the middle of the pillows. Was quite nice to receive these homely touches :)

Hello Tellehunt. Thanks for your review. No idea why there was someone running around outside your room - certainly not a staff member, it's been quite a while since any of us ran anywhere.
You were not 'lied to' about the restaurant, we've got better things to do, it wasn't open on those days because of the reasons given, but as you say, you don't need the details, it's open or it isn't, there are, of course, numerous alternatives within a few minutes walk so it doesn't need to be a major issue for anyone. I will pass on your good wishes, thank you.
As always toasters and cutlery etc. are available on request. DVD players we're considering, but hesitating due to safety concerns, some of our TV's are in awkward positions so we have to err on the side of caution.
Thanks for writing in and we hope to see you again one day.
Regards,
Richard.

We stayed as a couple for 3 nights. The room was quite adequate for us. We had room 21 which had a big corner spa bath. Room had designated parking space outside.

The bed was comfortable and there was also a small table and two chairs, TV, basic toiletries and bar fridge

Critique wise (and these are minor points)
- Would have been handy to have an extra towel instead of just two. One of the towels did look like it had seen some service being a bit frayed but everything was very clean.
- it wasn't very clear where the pool was - it is right up the front of the property which wasn't exactly convenient to the rooms. We didn't use it due to weather.
- the central garden area seemed a bit run down but we didn't spend any time there

Overall good value for money considering the convenience of the location.

Room Tip: If you want to be able to sit outside your room and look at a garden, ask for a room which has direc...

Our room at The Grange was a very clean and spacious. The price was very reasonable. The front desk receptionist is not always available but when there they are very friendly and helpful. Coffee, tea, fridge no microwave. Would definitely stay there again!

Hi LouC_DaveM, Thanks for writing in, glad you had a good experience staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again one day.
Reception is usually attended from 7-30am to 7-30pm minimum, as a general rule we only have one person on reception at any one time, so, inevitably, there will be times when that person is not available for a few minutes, for one reason or another. Sorry if you struck one of those moments.
Other than that we will keep our sense of humour and move forward.
Regards,
Richard.

The Grange is located very close to the main street, but in a quiet area, with no noise at night. Rooms are spacious, and ours had an outdoor sitting area looking out onto a garden, which was great. The staff are helpful and friendly. Yes, as others have said, it could do with an update, but it was clean and comfortable, so no major complaints. Having laundry facilities was a nice bonus.

We have stayed here twice in August 2013 and recently March 2014, we have no hesitation in returning again. The staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious with their own fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, wine glasses (especially good for Margaret River) and TV. The decor is a little dated but rooms are clean and well maintained. The hotel is 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of Margaret River and all the restaurants, pubs and shops you could need. Breakfast is served between 7.30am-9.30am and offers a choice of continental and cooked with this consisting of bacon, sausage, 2 eggs of your choice, beans and tomato. There is a plentiful supply of cereals, juice, toast and coffe for you to help yourself.

Room Tip: No bad rooms here, all reasonably similar in size and quiet location.

The rooms are huge and beautifully furnished with a canopied bed and full sofa and coffee table. There is a foyer with a refrigerator and we borrowed a microwave. It had a beautiful patio overlooking the garden with nice table and chairs. The bathroom was immaculate. Lee the manager and chef was more than gracious. We had a wonderful lamb dinner that she cooked in their alfresco dining room for a very reasonable price. It was so quiet and peaceful and just 2 short blocks to the main part of town. The Visitor's Center showed us pictures and booked this wonderful accommodation for three nights. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The accommodation was half a block from the main part of Margaret River, the service was friendly and great.
The rooms itself were a little outdated but were clean and I loved my four poster bed with spa room. I would stay here again and would recommend.
Area was safe and the accommodation had a pool, tennis court and bbq area with ample parking.
The price was also a bonus, I had the buffet breakfast which was delicious.
