Best Western Dorset Oborne The Grange Hotel

Best Western The Grange Hotel Oborne offers beautiful, 3-star country house accommodation, set within the rolling hills of West Dorset, just one mile from the charming town of Sherborne and seven miles from Yeovil.

Formerly a manor house, Best Western The Grange Hotel has undergone a transformation to a luxury family owned and run country house hotel with 18 bedrooms and a delightful restaurant overlooking floodlit gardens. Our quiet rural setting at the edge of the village is the reason why many of our guests return year after year to enjoy the peace and tranquility! The hotel is in the perfect position to explore Dorset, Somerset and historic Wessex, with plenty of things to do: Stonehenge, Longleat Estate and Safari Park, Stourhead House and Gardens, shopping in Sherborne or Bath, horse riding, shooting and hot air ballooning to name but a few.

It would be hard to find a more peaceful spot than the village of Oborne. The Yeo stream meanders through the village and ducks waddle about in the street! The hotel itself is the sum of the people who work here, we aim to exceed expectations and create a unique place in which all guests can feel relaxed and at home.

It all adds up to a wonderful location for business or pleasure, for that special family occasion or for the perfect wedding!

Very uncomfortable

Rooms are old and look (maybe are) dirty, shower and toilet are 'aged', the curtain is useless and there is no manner to obscure the window, so the room at 5 am is fully lighted. The breakfast does no... more

Owner Response
TheGrangeatOborne, Manager at Best Western Dorset Oborne the Grange Hotel, responded to this review
I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. As you did not tell us of any of these problems when you stayed, I do not know when you stayed or which room you stayed in, but I do wish you had said something as we many have been able to put some things right: Parts of the hotel are nearly 300 years old, so yes, some of the rooms are old, but we also have a newer part of the hotel where the rooms are more modern, it may have been possible to move you, but as you did not say anything, we did not know. All of our en-suite bathrooms have been completely refurbished within the last 12 years, so I do think it is a little unfair to call it ‘aged’. Like the bedrooms, we have a mixture of different styles of bathrooms – some more traditional and some more modern with wet-rooms. Had you told us, we may have been able to move you to another room with a more modern en-suite. You wrote that the rooms are old (and maybe) dirty. Our rooms are not dirty, but if you had said something when you stayed, we would have had the room cleaned again for you, but we did not know. Regarding breakfast, it is simply not true to say that the hotel “does not really offer anything simple for people not used to cooked meals like eggs, salmon etc...” Please allow me to list the items we offer at breakfast: From the Buffet: Natural Yoghurt Fresh Pineapple Fresh Galia Melon Homemade Berry Compote Apricot Halves in Syrup Grapefruit Segments Homemade Granola Homemade Muesli Flaked Almonds, Dried Apricots, Pecan Buts, Dried Prines, Hazel Nuts Branflakes, Cornflakes, Rice Krispies, Weetabix, Frosties, Coco Pops Maple Syrup Honey Marmalade and 3 flavours of jam Additionally, from the kitchen we offer: A selection of cold meats, cheese, apple and grapes. A kings breakfast of smoked salmon with scrambled eggs on a toasted muffin Kippers A full English breakfast, with sausage, back and streaky bacon, black pudding, hash brown, mushrooms, tomato, baked beans and eggs. Toast Croissants I am really not sure what else it is that you would liked to have had at breakfast? Vodafone do not have a network in this area. There is little we can do to improve this. Perhaps you could report it to your mobile telephone company who you pay to provide a signal? I am pleased to say that both EE and O2 provide network coverage. The wifi connection is very good. The broadband is not very good and this is beyond our control. We have installed a load-balancing router and multiple lines to try to ease the problem, however I am delighted that we are due to have fibre to the premises installed by the autumn of this year. The issue with Vodafone and the broadband is listed on our website so that guests can make an informed decision when booking a room at The Grange.
