About the hotel
The Grant Arms Hotel is a comfortable hotel situated in the centre of Ramsbottom. The Hotel Wing provides 14 beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms with, colour television with satellite channels, direct dial telephones, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, trouser press, iron and ironing board available on request. Originally named "Top o'th Brow" it became "Grant Lodge" when the famous industrialist Grant Brothers adopted it as their family home.
(William and Daniel Grant were noted in history as being the two characters that Charles Dickens based his "Cheeryble Brothers" upon in his novel Nicholas Nickleby). In 1828 it acquired its present name and as such has been popular as a pub, meeting place and venue for many local events. The perfect place to socialise, eat, drink and watch the world go by!. Extremely popular for those who enjoy peaceful walks with extraordinary views! It is now a family run business and they pride themselves on the fact they are the only one of their kind in the area. Wide range of wines, spirits, draught products and locally sourced Cask ales are always available from the Moorhouse's brewery.

Bedrooms are reached by steep stairs, minimum 2 flights, with no lift or stairlift.
There are no phones in bedrooms which is difficult for disabled wanting help or information. During a five day stay one day the room wasnt serviced despite many requests and on 2 days no coffee etc was supplied, but staff were most helpful in providing more when asked. Room 12 was fair but in the bathroom there was a lack of pressure for hot water at certain times, and the shower needed a mat as it was very slippery. A reasonable stay but not for the disabled.
I can only describe The Grant Arms as 'tired' and understaffed.
We found all the staff friendly, kind and very helpful in spite of being 'rushed of their feet'. There was no one to greet us when we arrived in spite of me ringing to give them an idea of the time we expected to arrive. The barman had to go and find someone to register us. He also carried our bags upstairs for us. There was a Wedding reception on and our room was well away from this so we weren't troubled buy any noise, which we thought was very thoughtful. The stairs were very poorly lit during the evening. We paid £7 each for breakfast which was adequate but with instant coffee (served in large white mugs but hot) so we were glad we didn't book for the second morning. Again the waiter was very obliging but rushed off his feet and we had to ask for orange juice as the jug was empty and there was no weetabix which we found surprising. There were buckets on the breakfast room floor as the ceiling was leaking and by the look of the stains on the ceiling had been leaking for some time. On leaving we could find no one to leave the keys with or the 'comments' card which l truthfully filled in with our name and address. It is too early to say if we'll get a reply. If we don't, be assured l shall write to you. Thank you for this opportunity to let you know of our experience. Be assured the staff were doing their very best under the circumstances.
