That title does not overstate the case. As a gift to mark a special occasion I was allowed to choose any hotel in central southern England. My love of (rural) Dorset has no bounds & the choice was easy having only stayed once before but the memory lingered & lingered & lingered. The welcome upon arrival is genuine & warm,...

I'll be the first to admit that I might be a bit bias - I am getting married today and my family has stayed in the hotel for 3 nights now, but we've not been able to find a fault. The rooms are very big, they're clean, decorated in a fashionable, but not showy manner, and the staff are the...

Good location, friendly staff. Rooms very very basic but not displeasing. Bathrooms need more shelves and towel rails as too sparse. Really relaxed and good atmosphere. Breakfast fine if a little manufactured. Draw back is the location having no or very little mobile phone access.

TheGrangeatOborne, Owner at BEST WESTERN Dorset Oborne the Grange Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the trouble to put a review of The Grange on tripadvisor. There is a widespread misunderstanding about the role of Best Western. Best Western is a marketing organisation and does not own any hotels. Like all Best Western hotels The Grange is independently owned and in our case is run by our family. Although I am...

But such a spot is The Grange , from the warm , friendly and efficient welcome , to the quality of the room, to the personal service at all levels this charming hotel invites a rapid...

We stayed at The Grange as a last minute booking and managed to get the last room available. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and our room was of a very high standard. The room was spacious with a large wet room. The breakfast was excellent and we could not have asked for more from our stay. We would...

We stayed here the day after our wedding. Having said goodbye to all our guests and deposited many of them at the station I wanted to stay somewhere nice before we went off the following day on our low key honeymoon in a 30 year old campervan. We had the bridal suite which was lovely. We arrived at our room...

Easy to find in a small charming village. The setting and grounds and excellent. The staff were very friendly and professional. Good menu choices which were well presented in a very pleasant restaurant with a view of the gardens. Would thoroughly recommend it plus a short stroll to the adjoining small church.

We stayed here to visit friends in Dorset and also to attend the Glastonbury Festival (about 45 mins drive away). The hotel is very traditional and has friendly staff. The best thing about this hotel is that it's so peaceful and quiet as it's down a country lane and so there is no traffic noise. We had room 1, a...

We stayed here to attend a wedding locally. We had room 10 a garden room that was spacious and very clean. Lovely lounge area and dinner and breakfast was excellent. However what really stood out was the staff and how friendly they were. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Grange at Oborne is a luxury country house hotel with eighteen bedrooms and an award-winning restaurant overlooking the 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 tranquillity that the hotel has to offer. It is a place to unwind, relax and regenerate. Family-owned and run, The Grange prides itself on its friendly staff. The Grange won Dorset Tourism's 'Best Small Hotel' in 2015. ... more   less
