Little gem on the coast
I came across the Grand on a business trip and wanted to thank you for a great stay. The rooms are a little tired, but I could see there was work happening to improve this. What makes this place is the staff. They are extremely friendly, professional and a credit to the Grand. The concierge (sorry I didn't get his name) was very helpful. I have to also thank the restaurant and bar staff. The food was excellent and a big thank you to Keri, the assistant manager of the restaurant. Fabulous service and very knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. You are a credit to your hotel and I will definitely revisit. Thank you Grand!

A Grand Night Out
Generally speaking I enjoyed my one night stay. The lounge/bar area was magnificent as was the service apart from being overcharged for a glass of wine for which the hotel acknowledged. The television in my room was poor considering that this is a 5 star hotel. The bath also was quite high for getting in for a shower. I’d probably give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

4/10 Fair

My stay was unenjoyable I prepaid 2 nights and only stayed 1 night. Room depressing small window, had to read book in bathroom for good lighting, dirty nail file in container with new shower cap. No table for room service asked if I wanted it on dressing table !!! Bathroom cold heated towel rail not on. For £29 more could have stayed at Hydro hotel in a suite with amazing sea view.
