We stayed at the Grand 25-27 September in Room 106. Whilst we have stayed at the Grand many years ago we started staying at the Imperial Hotel Torquay which continued for the past five years. The Imperial was fully booked this time around and I must say that it was most certainly to our advantage as we have been reminded... More

The Grand was great for our little family. Room 119 was at the back of the hotel as we booked last minute but what it lacked in view it made up in size. Swimming pool was great and as it is not right in the town the walk is amazing (3 min walk of sea front) we did it with... More

Set in a quintessentially English Victorian seaside setting The Grand stirs memories of a time and era gone by. It was built some 130 years ago to accommodate the wealthy gentry while they 'took the sea air' and perhaps immersed themselves in neck to ankle bathing costumes in the curative sea water. The service has the charm of being attentive... More

Spent a family holiday here and chose nearly perfect weather, although there is an indoor as well as outdoor pool. Room comfortable and clean. The extended family ended up with five rooms between us. This gave us a good overall feel of the rooms as the hotel has been extended over the years, the newer rooms are obviously better. The... More

My boyfriend and I decided to pop into the lounge at The Grand Hotel for a pot of tea on a Sunday evening. We had a look at the menu and decided to order some food as well. My boyfriend had the wild mushroom risotto with a side order of fries and I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli in... More

My husband and I recently had a couple of nights break at this Hotel. My husband is 81 years, severely sight impaired and has dementia, and is a little wobbly on his feet. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after. Anthony came to our assistance carrying the bags, assisted my husband into the hotel and offered to... More

We were so glad to be back in this lovely hotel and what a joy to see we can now use the balcony although I might suggest a step from the balcony side would be excellent. The room was well appointed although a bit smaller than usual but the use of balcony was a great plus as my husband is... More

We booked The Grand due to its proximity to the train station and that it offered internal lifts as we were travelling with a disabled guest. We parked outside with a parking permit. The external of the hotel is very tired and our room on the 2nd floor matched it. The room was clean but with a dated bathroom, old... More

As Henry James said in 1843 "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea" and this is an ideal place to try out the old English custom of afternoon. We came as a birthday treat for my sister, and this was acknowledged by the manager by giving her a... More
