Just days before Christmas 2014, our daughter's wedding reception was held at the Grand Hotel. The meal was delicious, hot and beautifully presented in double quick time. No guest waited more than a moment for their meal to arrive and following the reception, we were inundated with thank you letters to say how fabulous the entire experience had been for... More

The Grand Hotel was a great experience to me and my girlfriend. Lovely located and clean..just as advertised. The only thing that let us down a bit was their breakfast - not as good as other hotels we've been to before, not as much choice, the juice didn't taste nice and definitely wasn't fresh. Other than that, a good stay... More

I can't praise this hotel high enough. The attention to detail, the courtesy of staff, the ambiance of the public rooms and bedrooms is simply one of the best I have experienced. If you are looking for a romantic weekend away from the world and to be looked after as if you were the only customer in the world then... More

Faded grandeur? The bones of this place are wonderful: wide hallways, high ceilings, alcoves. However the finishings are tired (eg carpets are stained, dresser drawers are missing pulls, shower water pressure isn't quite there), and the floral bedspreads reflect the aesthetic of someone's great great aunt.

My friend was bought a treatment gift voucher as a birthday treat and so we decided to make more of a day and use the facilities. The website is well laid out and gives a variety of options; however the receptionist was very helpful when I phoned and advised that if you book a treatment you are also able to... More

We visited my Mum & Step dad who was staying at the Grand last Sunday and had booked a table for 6 for 10.00am to have breakfast with them. Service was very hit and miss indeed once we were greeted by a black coat that was where the service ended.We had to ask for everything. Breakfast Cereals were situated right... More

My husband treated me to an overnight stay in a Suite so that I could pamper myself in the Spa whilst he went to watch the super bowl with friends. Although the website offers a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast price, we telephoned and opted for a bed and breakfast option. (The booking staff were incredibly helpful) On Arrival we found... More

stayed at this hotel for three nights from 28th Feb this year. Very welcoming hotel with very nice atmosphere. Food very good and excellent attentive staff. Situated on quiet part of seafront. Have stayed three or four times, never disappointed.
