This hotel is an easy 7-10 minute walk from the train station, with wheelie carry-ons. This is our second stay, so we know the way. Last year Peter, the Concierge came to the intersection across near the station to hail us, as we didn't know the way, and when we met him across the street, he took our luggage the... More

.This Hotel offers the best possible. Food entertainment and certainly the 4 pools no fighting for sun beds I honestly don't think you could better this Hotel. This hotel is at the top of a very big hill so if you have walking difficulties you may have a problem, having said that taxis are very cheap.,

The only reason I dropped to Very Good was because our room was a bit chilly. The staff promptly supplied us with a portable heater,however there should be no problem at this time of year. That really was our only negative. This is a lovely hotel. From the minute we arrived at the entrance, we were treated like royalty by... More

Our second visit, we were in a master suite which was pretty faultless really! Beautiful views from the many windows, lovely light airy rooms with an amazing bathroom. Clean and well presented throughout - for a luxury break I can't recommend this place enough, it is the best 5star hotel we have stayed in. The service is excellent and the... More

On our arrival (after a fraught car journey) we were met by extremely efficient concierge (Barak) who took care of our car and luggage and made us feel immediately at home. They say first impressions are paramount and this was a great introduction to The Grand. From then on the whole experience matched the hotel's name. Reception, Bell Boy, room,... More

The Grand certainly lives up to its name. It has that elegance and style you associate with a 5 star hotel. From the friendly welcome of the impressively dressed doormen to the positive attitude of all other staff the Grand oozes professionalism and attention to customer well being. The rooms are comfortably spacious and the bathrooms modern and fully equipped.... More

We enter for afternoon tea with our 7 year olds and had a great experience. The staff couldn't do enough and made us feel very welcome even though we were a bit on edge as we really wanted the kids to behave, as if I'd been a couple there and they'd been causing a commotion I think I'd have gone...

Just got back from a superb stay at The Grand! Staff were extremely knowledgeable about the history of the property, which set the scene, whilst also being very attentive, this enabled the whole experience to be seamless. Staying in a suite was well worth the money, staying in Prince Andrew's regular room added to the flavour! Spa facilities were first... More
