If you like "old fashioned service" at its' best in a tranquil setting & food that is delicious & presented with a modern flair then this is the place for you. Our dog also enjoyed it - public footpaths adjacent to the hotel.

We had a 2 day break - an incredible birthday treat - which began with the warmest of welcomes, with tea and the best shortbread I've ever had. In my 61 years I have never eaten food as wonderful as we had on these 2 days. Every little detail was perfect and delicious. They even escalated the humble apricots at breakfast by adding a citrus syrup! Chef piped "Happy Birthday" on my dessert plate in chocolate, and there were sequins on our table! The views are stunning, and we watched the birds (soo many birds!) on feeders by the windows, and a red squirrel running around from our dining table. The guest lounge was spacious and quiet (no horrible musak or T.V. in the background!) Our only small negative comment would be that the single beds were too short for my 6ft 4" hubby (I would choose a double next time), and (due to the age of the building I guess) the floor above us was a bit creaky. But everything was spotless, and nothing was too much trouble. LOVE this hotel!!

I try to visit this hotel a couple of times a year now if I can. The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble, the food is very good and always features local produce. I always try to book a room on the first floor with views looking over Grange, large windows and very comfortable. This visit was four nights , I parked my car, walked every day and it didn't move for the whole of my visit, what an excellent location. Great views from the restaurant, I enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders and the red squirrel. I've already booked my next stay.
