OUTSTANDING QUALITY SMALL BOUTIQUE COUNTRY HOUSE HOTEL

Jonathan Fletcher, Owner at The Grange at Oborne, responded to this review
Thank you. We were delighted to get another two awards from the Dorset Tourism awards. One was just because we are a great hotel(!) and one was a special mention for tourism innovation - we converted to a convalescent home and opened ready to take patients from Dorset's hospitals on April 13th. When we reopened in the summer of 2020, each Sunday we gave the use of the hotel garden to musicians so that they could hold outdoor concerts. Something which we hope helped a number of people who had not earned anything in a long time. My WWII history is a little sketchy, but didn't McArthur return with an army?

Thank you. JP is great, as are the other staff, some of whom are quite new to The Grange. It is appreciated when a reviewer takes the time to call out one person as it always gives them a lift - thank you.

Thank you. There was a lot of food to eat that day! Glad we could help to get you all home safely after the wedding. I am just pleased it was only for fifteen; if it had been for the eighty that was originally planned, we would have been giving lifts all night!

Thank you. I am glad you like the express check out, we started doing this for social distancing (too many people checking out at the same time) but so many guests like it that we will probably keep it after this is all over!
