Cumbria Grand Hotel - Lake District
ON arrival allocated room no.
227. at first ok. Following morning discovered roof leak in bathroom. After reporting to reception. Agreed to to move us. However, after viewing several rooms which were completely unacceptable. was told that no other rooms were available. when I suggested therefore that they might want to make a reduction in our 2 night stay they suddenly came up with a room[no. 131] which was very good and acceptable. Not good customer relations.
I had an amazing view from my hotel window which was worth the price alone however the food was very pricey and actually pretty poor.
The room was clean and very comfortable.
Old - fashioned grandeur and service at an affordable price
The location of this hotel is superb, overlooking the sands of Morecambe Bay, with a feeling of the Lakeland fells nearby.
The panoramic views stretching from the snow - capped Howgills sweeping right round the bay to the power station at Heysham were simply stunning from my balcony. A comfortable bed and attractive bathroom made a most enjoyable stay, and a lavish breakfast buffet exceeded all my expectations, together with friendly service in a relaxing ambience, all at a most reasonable price.
Really enjoyable staying spoilt by rude staff at breakfast
I took my wife away for the night following 2 family bereavements.
We had not been to Grange-over-Sands before but decided to give it a go. We certainly weren't disappointed by the room, and the welcome hamper was a wonderful touch. Unfortunately our enjoyment was almost entirely spoilt by a member of staff at breakfast who was incredibly rude in 'asking' us to move seats. A very disappointing end to an otherwise largely enjoyable stay.
Stayed at this hotel for one night following Cartmel races.
I have stayed in a lot of hotels in my time and can safely say I have stayed in better Premier Inn's for a 1/3 of the price. Overpriced for this quality of accommodation.
A group of us had stayed and had a meal the evening of our stay. The food was of a good quality although you couldn't pay for anything by card at the bar and everything had to go on your room. The bathroom was very basic and the corridors and communal areas were tired
It took c20 minutes to check out as our food order from the previous night had not made it through to the reception and they then had to go and find the order. Even after this wait they couldn't find it and I had to remember the food order for 8 people. There was also a bit of a domestic between the duty manager and receptionist as to who should do what jobs and I found that quite unprofessional arguing with one another in front of hotel guests. All in all it was a disappointing stay, thankfully it was paid for through work expenses as I would have been more disappointed had we paid for it ourselves.
Very nice hotel
Room was basic, but in process of rooms upgrades.
No tea of coffee making facilities which was disappointing. But lovely settings. Would go back.
Just as I expected.
Pity about the dogs
We looked carefully at this site before we booked there was no mention of it being dog friendly.
This was.important as my husband has asthma and I am allergic to animal hairs. On going to our room there was a dog barking in a room further down the corridor. I immediately went to reception and was told the hotel was dog friendly. I asked if a dog could have slept in our room she replied probably I asked for a dog free room she said all rooms were dog friendly. As it was too late to start looking for another hotel she said our room would be given an extra clean tomorrow which it was. We are not against dogs but our dogs were never allowed on beds or on furniture. We will not be returning.
Faded graandeur and corners cut
Once a posh country hotel that deserved it's name, the "Grand" is a shadow of it's past glory, ripe for renovation.Rooms are clean and comfy, but with no frillls, and well overpriced.Wifi is very mean too:you have to sit by the reception desk (really) to get it, and then it's mostly too slow to receive.
Food is pretty average at breakfast, and the bar snacks were terrible. Stained carpets and dodgy chairs you can put up with in a town that 's a few miles from the Lake District if it's a bargain price, but we left feeling we'd been well ripped off.
Grand old Grand
Once inside the hotel I found every thing to be just perfect.
Well nearly all, the lift did remind one of days gone bye. The reception staff were superb, not just because they gave me an upgrade, but because they were so cheerful, helpful and just there to make your stay as good as possible. I found the bar meals to be good and plentiful but overpriced for what you had. Breakfast was not too bad but then I'm not a lover of self service so you get what is on offer i.e. cold eggs and bacon etc. All in all though I would say that I will definitely be coming back.
