The staff were lovely and very helpful . The room was clean and the toiletries were very good. However,I am glad that this was for one night only as the carpets and soft furnishings need replacement. They SMELL. Rodd group needs to refurbish!

We had room 703 and according to the hotel guide, it is the VIP floor so you get more amenities like bathrobes. No shampoo though. The elevators were creaky and groaning which doesn't give much confidence. The bathroom sink was very slow to drain as it had a clog somewhere.The bathroom is very rundown. The grout around the tub is... More

Recently, my daughter got married at Rodd Grand Hotel. Unfortunately, Hurricane Arthur arrived in town that day as well, and electrical power to the hotel was knocked out. Thanks to the dedication and thoughtfulness of the hotel staff, along with their willingness to go far above and beyond the call of duty, the wedding went ahead on "Plan B" -... More

The Rodd Grand Yarmouth provided us with welcome accommodation after we discovered, on arrival at the address we had for the B.& B. we'd booked in to, that it was no longer a B.& B.! The hotel staff friendly and helpful, there was a beautiful view from our large room and the bed was very, very comfortable.

The hotel is located in Yarmouth, a small seaside fishing town. The hotel is older, but they seem to be renovating the hotel. The room we had (615) was close to the elevator and the beds were very comfortable. The room was very clean. The bathroom still needs some updating, but again the room was clean. Older TV, WIFI was... More

This might be the largest hotel in Yarmouth, and it was certainly excellent. We had a room on the 7th floor, with a view down main street and over the harbour. The hotel is comparable to any large chains, but with a small town friendly atmosphere. The rooms were a good size, and equipped as you would expect. We ate... More

It is a difficult task to operate a hotel here - Yarmouth tourism is not exactly booming. However this hotel is need of improvement and updates to take it from a tired motel to a modern hotel. Centrally located close to the water.

I stayed here recently on a business trip and must say I was very disappointed. I travel a lot for work, and by no means have a high standard.

I had a quick 1 night stay in Yarmouth for a business meeting. The price for the 1 night was good and that included my breakfast (up to $8). For $8 I did get a good bacon and eggs breakfast with coffee; so no complaints there. The hotel itself is a little dated. When I entered my room it actually... More
