We booked in for one night to stay after a party in Brighton, with our 2 dogs for which we were charged extra. Bearing in mind we had the dogs, we were place don the top 7th floor. The room was pokey with just enough room for the double bed. The 'view' was of an un-painted rough-rendered wall, drainage and... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at The Grand. This was our second visit to the hotel..We had a delux seaview on the 5 th floor and it was breathtaking we were on the corner so we could look out to sea as far as the pier through the double doors and all the way down to the other... More

I regularly stay at the Grand in Brighton. It's where I go to relax and get a break from London which can be very stressful. This time it was my anniversary break away. I arrived to complimentary champagne and a warm welcome. We had a wonderful room overlooking the sea. The main bedroom was probably bigger than my London flat!... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night. It was disappointing that check-in was delayed but we had a free drink to compensate. Other than that we didn't have air con in the room or a fridge but everything else was excellent. On a longer break these downsides may have become a problem so we'd probably either book a more...

Trip abroad was cancelled so we decided to head to Brighton for a few days of sun instead. Decided to treat ourselves to a sea view room. Had some hesitations as my experience of the hotel for tea a few years back was not great. It seems as if the hotel has undergone a major renovation both in décor and... More

We stayed over the weekend. Good points - staff very polite and helpful, valet parking service, above average breakfast buffett, good room (we had a standard room and it was absolutely fine), good selection of cocktails and wines in the bar. The only real disappointment was it was impossible to get a seat in the bar for lunch. Every table... More

We ve just stayed at the grand. We had a room on the 3rd floor with double doors opening onto a lovely balcony. Our room was stunning. It was large contemporary and really had the wow factor when you went in. Sky tv is standard as is the coffee machine. Room service great. Car valet parking was great and worked... More

One of the most stunning places I have ever stayed in. Stayed for 2 nights (Weds-Fri) in a standard double room. The staff were extremely helpful as nothing was too much trouble. The iron had broken in our room and so they brought one to our room on two separate occasions. On Friday morning after check out, we left our... More

Stayed here in July 2014. It seems like the Grand Hotel is living off it's name. It's an average enough hotel in a good location. The hotel had a good breakfast and the staff seemed helpful enough. The hotel needs to get into the 21st century. It seems a bit excessive charging well over £200 a night for a room... More

I've been lucky enough to stay at The Grand on two different occasions, December 2012 and June 2014. The first time was for my sisters wedding which was absolutely amazing. The room was decorated exactly how required. The food was delightful. Our room was at the front overlooking the sea, which was stunning even though it was December. Our whole... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is a truly remarkable hotel. An iconic Victorian building, it stands centre stage on the vibrant Brighton seafront and is a local landmark. Magnificent, imposing and the epitome of luxury. This is The Grand, Brighton. Following a recent extensive refurbishment, The Grand experience is one you will never forget. It's in the splendour of the 123 step sweeping staircase, the exquisite textures in the bedrooms, the delectable cuisine in GB1 restaurant and the sumptuous surroundings of The Spa at The Grand. It's in the stunning seaviews and the warmth with which you are welcomed. It's in its innate sense of style. The magnificent Grand is a popular location for films and television shows. Coronation Street, Eastenders and Only Fools and Horses have all shot episodes in the hotel. For the complete Brighton experience, it has to be The Grand, Brighton. ... more   less
