We have just returned from our second visit to this lovely hotel, the first time 4 months ago. It is as welcoming and relaxing as before. The setting is delightful and the Dining Room in the evening overlooking the floodlit garden is perfect. Dinner is very good, with a blend of different and imaginative tastes and the staff and owner-manager are efficient, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. We will certainly return before long.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have seen are of a very high standard. Quieter overlooking the garden but the nois...

Great staff who went out of their way to help. Check in was done in a warm friendly manner, with an up grade due to our loyalty card, so we were delighted with our lovely quiet room opening onto the garden. Restaurant was fabulous- worth staying here for the food! The hotel has been an old farmhouse so is set in a quiet tiny village, with green fields and beautiful gardens. It was a delightful sojourn in the country at the end of 5 weeks travel for us. My only cautionary note- don' t walk to Sherborne, take the car. It is a beautiful town and a must to visit but we were tired when we returned- it is further than the locals tell you and there is a lot of walking in order to see everything when you get there.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for a view of the gardens and countryside.

We stayed for 2 nights with a group of friends from England and Wales for our annual get together. We normally stay in Best Western hotels around the country as we reckon they provide good value for money. The Grange exceeds them all! Situated in a quiet village seemingly frozen in time, the hotel snuggles into the valley unobtrusively. The staff couldn't be more helpful and obliging. The accomodation was excellent, spacious and not the usual confined layout normally found in hotel rooms, particularly useful for the disabled among us. All the meals were beautifully cooked and presented. Long may it last! Others should take note of how a small hotel should be run.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms available for disabled. No lifts.

We have an annual weekend away for seven school friends and as someone retired from management side of a holiday industry I was amazed at how good ALL the departments of this hotel was. Right from the friendly owner clearing leaves through the family member acting as receptionist/host right through the restaurant to to housekeeping and maintenance. The young people serving in the restaurant deserve particular mention for their friendly service. The most comfortable beds I have experienced in a hotel. Very well done to all, this level requires dedication and hard work.

We have no criticisms about this hotel. It is perfect. The host was very welcoming and there is a lot of attention to detail. Our room and bathroom was spotless. The restaurant is very attractive and the food very good. The hotel is also in a pleasant village and the surroundings are peaceful and yet near to many interesting places to visit.

Fantastic place in a tiny village. Lovely very helpful staff. Great room, large & with a lovely shower & bathroom. Lots of electrical sockets for charging laptop, tablet & phones etc. Great meal in the restaurant, brilliant cheeseboard. Breakfast freshly cooked to order & everything had a lovely taste & flavour.

Room Tip: There is no lift so if you cannot climb stairs then make this clear on booking.
