I have to say that this was the best tea I have ever had. Following a funeral at Arlington we went to the Grand Hotel for tea and had lovely soft sandwiches, hot pork filets, garlic mushrooms, fish balls, and wine and tea for those who did not want to drink.Lovely room at the Carrington Suite, nice staff, lovely ambiance...

Totally spoilt by all and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend and the best service we have had at a 5* Hotel . Thank you so much - a memorable 50th... More

The Breakfast buffet was very standard and they kept running out of items. The table service was excellent. Dissapointed with the afternoon tea, as we had to wait for an extended peiod of time for more sandwiches. The scones and cream were good, however the cakes were nothing special. My friend was gluten free, which she had advised when booking... More

A visit to the Grand, 38 years after a summer job working there! It didn't disappoint, many things were instantly and reassuringly recognisable - the staircases, the lounges and the bedrooms seemed just the same. Far from being a negative this was a tremendously good thing - the old lady's elegance and presence and lack of mobile phones, ipods, computer... More

My husband and I went for a Festive afternoon tea and loved it! It was my husbands first afternoon so he wasn't sure what to expect but was more than impressed. We had the prime table, sat right in front of the fire with the gorgeous giant Christmas trees either side of the fireplace. Staff were very polite and attentive,... More
