My wife and I stayed for the weekend to attend a function. From the start of our visit we were struck by the friendliness and helpful attitude of the staff - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The restaurant and bar facilities were very comfortable.

Hotel's Favourite
We had a five night stay with dinner bed and breakfast in a disabled room and everything was first class. On-line pre-arrival information was helpful and reassuring and the on-line check in was easy. Our room was spotless and airy and all the staff were friendly and keen to help. The gardens were beautiful and, in the heat, it was wonderful to sit at the tables and have a cool drink. Jon and Jenny were friendly and welcoming and worked tirelessly with the staff to make everyone's stay a safe and enjoyable one. The meals were well prepared, beautifully cooked and had lots of choice. We also had lunch every day and appreciated every meal. Thank you to all staff - from the "I'm New" to Teresa, Holly, JP and Jon and Jenny. We can't thank you enough!!

We stayed here one night with an elderly uncle to celebrate his 90th birthday. Both our rooms were excellent and spotlessly clean, One with a private balcony and one with a patio, both overlooking the beautiful gardens. The hotel is nicely tucked away in a lovely quiet setting. Ample parking in the carpark. Highly recommended !

Returned from a lovely six night holiday with friends yesterday. Quiet, off the beaten track hotel with good parking. Delightful gardens with plenty of outside seating. Everything perfect - very friendly and helpful hotel staff, delicious food and a comfortable room. Thank you everyone at The Grange.

Quite excellent. Service, location, facilities and ambience. This was just a great week with our car club friends. The staff are superb and is just a thoroughly nice place to be. They even laid on a model garage featuring our cars! The opportunity to revisit all parts of Dorset from Oborne is ideal.

The Grange is situated in a very peaceful hamlet, two miles from Sherborne. Beautiful view from our room, which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was of the highest quality. The most memorable aspect of our stay was the friendliness of the staff, from the manager to everybody else. Will happily recommend the hotel to our friends.

In general, a fantastic hotel, - one of the best ( of many ) that I have ever stayed in. We were three retired couples on a mid-week break, staying in three adjacent rooms, all of which were extremely well appointed, whilst being different in level of luxury. Beautiful rooms, overlooking a private patio and garden area, which afforded us outside tables and chairs within a well manicured garden. The hotel staff were amazing; - particularly on the catering side, where we were treated like V.I.P.s. All our meals were superb, and were selected from excellent menus which included vegetarian options. There was adequate parking on site for the maximum capacity of the hotel. One aspect of our 3-night stay let the side down however, which has cost the establishment what could have been full marks, and this concerns our bill. Our 3 individual accounts were electronically generated, and were sent to us via e-mail AFTER we had vacated the hotel. Each bill was incorrect, albeit by only small financial amounts, but the Hotel has no reception staff on duty before 3 p.m. so we were unable to discuss and /or challenge our bills as room vacation was mid morning. Also, food and drink charges on each bill were not fully explained; the itemisation was somewhat sparse with regard to costs. I would highly recommend this hotel, but would advise any potential guest to insist on a traditional "paper" bill being made available before leaving.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Firstly, I would like to clarify to anyone reading this that in no way did we overcharge you! We have since emailed and identified that in fact the bills were correct, but that there had been a misunderstanding about how you wanted the drinks’ bills to be divided amongst the three couples. On the first two nights, you gave the restaurant team instructions to bill the drinks to specific rooms. On the last night there were no instructions and so the restaurant team split the bill evenly across the three rooms – it is this which was the problem. I am sorry that we did not send the bill to the room you had wanted it to reach. I also wanted to clarify one other point from your review; we do give you the opportunity to see your bills before you leave; we just request that if you would like to do this, you ask the night before and we can print them for you there and then. This is communicated to our guests by email in advance of their stay, at check in and in the guest directory in the bedroom. Once again, I am pleased that your party enjoyed their time at The Grange and we hope to see you on another occasion!

Our first time at the Grange but wont be the last as this an absolute gem. We booked direct and were felt welcomed right from the start which continued right through our stay. On line check in was a breeze which made arrival a simple process of handing over the key, very efficient. Our room was excellent with everything you could wont for, clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated. In fact the whole hotel is tastefully decorated and maintained to a high standard. the gardens are well kept and is a great place to enjoy an aperitif. There are some really nice touches such as someone has taken a great deal of time to provide really useful guides, maps etc. which are well organized. Lastly and by no means least the staff are the icing on the cake, helpful, friendly and excellent at what they do.
