I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Cumbria Grand Hotel. I was there for a couple of nights while visiting the south lakes, and got more for my money than expected. It's a beautiful looking hotel, in a quiet location, with fantastic views over the bay. On a clear day the views from the dining room were actually pretty stunning. There was plenty to choose from at breakfast and for evening meals, and the quality was really good too. My room was clean and had everything I needed, and the staff around the hotel were friendly and helpful with any questions. I had no complaints whatsoever, and will happily stay again. Great value. Great base. Great hotel.

We recently stayed at this hotel & would say the exterior looks rather dark & imposing; it is a large Victorian hotel which has seen better days but is set in attractive grounds which are home to a pair of peacocks. The reception & public seating areas downstairs are quite clean, attractive & comfortable, but the main staircase we used was rather scruffy with damaged paintwork & walls (see photographs). Our en-suite room was a good size with a wardrobe containing spare pillows, blankets & a trouser press. There was also a TV & a tea/coffee-making tray with biscuits. The matching bedspreads & curtains looked like a typical 1980s vintage. The en-suite did not have a window & there was a sign asking guests to keep the door closed because the steam could set off the smoke alarm. This made using the bathroom a less pleasant experience than we are used to as it felt rather claustrophobic. It also had some areas of mould/mildew on the tiles & in the grouting which we were not pleased to see (see photographs). The daily breakfast was from a self-serve buffet with a good range of cereals, fruit, juices & hot cooked items. Some of the hot cooked food was not great including the fried & scrambled eggs which were generally overcooked. There was also tea, coffee & toast which were brought by the waiters. Overall we quite enjoyed our stay in this hotel; it was fairly quiet, the staff were quite friendly but we really felt this hotel is overdue for a thorough refurbishment.

I was pleasantly surprised with what good value this hotel. It was better than i expected in every way. The room i had was very clean and half way through the week my bed was changed which was a real treat. The views were delightful , staff were helpful and very friendly. Super breakfast too. Overall it was a great experience and superb base for visiting family in the area. Will be staying here again !!

Stayed at this hotel on a very wet Sunday. We were on a groupon voucher so it was very good value. The hotel is a bit dated but very comfortable. The food was very good, we had a three course dinner with the main course being from the carvery. The hotel was busy but the service was excellent. All the staff were pleasant, efficient and polite. Breakfast the next morning was also very good. Would thoroughly recommend.

The hotel looked and felt very tired. The lounge and bar area were good but the rest of the hotel need's a major refurbishment ASP,,, The carpets were heavily stained and the room doors looked well battered! Rooms very small Needs to be taken over and given a good revamp. on the plus side, Pretty situation with views across the sands. The room and bathroom were spotless and comfortable. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The gardens were extensive but we did not have time to explore. The potential for this hotel is very good, it just needs somebody with vision to take it forward

Just stayed here for a long weekend. Nice food and very pleasant staff. Just need to remember it`s a very old place and the upkeep must be never ending. It`s in such a pretty area with plenty of places to visit. Room was lovely (233) but found the bed very uncomfortable.

My wife and I spent one night at the Cumbria Grand Hotel last week whilst in Grange-Over-Sands to attend a family function. When you arrive from the south (east), the driveway is very difficult to find, our sat nav told us but I didn't trust it. The turn is very sharp. We were on the ground floor in room 21. It was comfortable, clean with a king bed. We slept well. We went to have afternoon tea. I asked for a scone and was told "Oh, we don't do those". Hummnn We arrived at breakfast at 9:20. The began tearing down the buffet promptly at 9:30 and we could feel the coldness of the staff. We probably will not go back.

I base my review on a Groupon deal. Old hotel set in it own grounds, the garden looks very beautiful but with the weather terrible didn't use. Excellent sign- in with a delightful receptionist, we were assigned room 111 which was very nice, newly decorated, & had a bonus of a free small hamper, water, crisps, fudge & toiletries,(an excellent touch). The ensuite very large, huge shower cubicle, all very new. The view wasn't bad either, over some flat roofs to Morcambe Bay beyond. The hotel has excellent lounges & a large bright restaurant. Dinner was a 3 course buffet, as buffets go very good, I ordered Crispy Black Pudding with mustard sauce for a starter this was poor as you only got one thin slice of pudding. Breakfast was excellent & I was able to get two slices of black pudding!!!! along with bacon. egg, sausage tomato etc., I still cannot understand the poor starter at dinner. All the staff were excellent. Hopefully next time we come we will have better weather as there is a path just outside the hotel grounds which leads to the Prom., a lovely walk.

We arrived with a smile from reception. The room was ample size, restaurant food was amazing. The reception staff were amazing as prior to my girlfriend and I arriving I spoke with them and they placed rose petrels on our bed. Cannot fault anything about this experience 👍🏼

We stayed here for an organised Dance Weekend. We found the food and accommodation to be excellent! Looks like some refurbishment has been undertaken and some more still to tackle, but overall everything was positive. Bedrooms and en suites were adequate although perhaps new mattresses may be next on the list. The staff also deserve a mention for their attention, politeness and friendliness. Views from the hotel over the bay were magnificent. Hotel is situated a short stroll outside the centre of Grange.
