We recently stayed at The Grange for a family wedding, the hotel was a beautiful haven in the countryside with the most amazing and friendly staff. We were looked after extremely well and I would highly recommend the hotel and their wonderful staff. Thank you for looking after us and making our weekend so special.

Hotel's Favorite
The Grange is situated in idyllic rolling countryside, near to the lovely small town of Sherborne. The hotel itself is made of the mellow local stone, and is a delight to look at both inside and out. We had booked for Christmas and wanted to stay for one night to check out the room. Sadly it was unavailable, but we stayed in a gorgeous alternative which looked out onto its own patio. It was extremely comfortable, with everything well thought out and tastefully done. Covid had obviously left the hotel staff short handed, but despite the difficult times the service was warm and welcoming. A couple of staff had badges proclaiming them to be new, which we thought was a marvellous idea. The food was outstanding. We both adored everything about it, and the wines were delectable. In short, this hotel is superb and we are busy thinking up excuses to return. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to make our stay such a pleasant one.

Response from Jonathan Fletcher, Owner at The Grange at Oborne
Responded 24 Aug 2021
After the year we have had, you don't need an excuse to return! Yes, staffing has been very tricky over the last few years, and over the past eighteen months, the problems have only intensified. We are doing our best, many of us are working long hours and training the new, young members of staff. Thanks for the lovely review

Our wedding at The Grange this last weekend was a fabulous day mainly due to the warmth, efficiency, humour, delicious food all flowing generously from a happy efficient team led by John and Jenny. The hotel is welcoming from the cosy bar to the main reception room which was perfect for our wedding supper and dancing later. The Wessex room was ideal for the ceremony and help was given in every aspect of the planning for this important part of the day. The hotel rooms are beautifully furnished and very comfortable but not ostentatious and the breakfast next morning for our guests was perfect and delicious! Little touches like the cute jars for the jams and marmalade, the butter swirls hiding beneath silver plated tiny domes - all show that this Hotel team cares and it shows. We shall be back for lunch many times in the future.

We have just had THE most amazing weekend for a family wedding here. Not only is the venue beautiful, decorated brilliantly with just the right amount of ambience, the team at The Grange were superb. The attention to detail and service from ALL the staff was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble and all actioned with a smile. Its rare to find a complete team with the same friendly ethos, yet this flows through every member of staff. Jenny was utterly brilliant and nothing was left to chance. The food was incredible, both at the wedding & for breakfast. Our day was so so special and The Grange was a big part of that. A huge thank you to everyone.
