I have seen reviews of this hotel where people have complained about the rooms and the state of decor etc, we stayed in the Elgar Suite, which whilst some of the decor looked a bit tired and a bit dated, the rooms were nice enough and spotlessly clean, absolutely no complaints on that score. However the weather was extremely hot... More

When we walked into the lobby we were blown away by its decor. It is beautiful. Very opulent as if stepping into Agatha Christie times. Receptionist was lovely and very... More

Having walked with 4 suitcases from the cricket club to reception we then had to wait 10 minutes to check in. Reception staff were trying to please guests but you... More

We came back to The Grand for a 3 night summer break in June having previously stayed in late September a couple of years ago. We were satisfied then and wondered how it would be in the summer. We were not disappointed. A spacious sea-view room was good value - we did find however that the previous, probably portly incumbent,... More

We stayed here last year and it was okay. But having read the reviews on Trip Advisor it had seemingly gone downhill so this years holiday we opted to stay elsewhere in Torquay. I'm glad we did. We decided to go back to the Grand just for a Devon Tea as from what we remembered last year it was exceptional.... More
