Another lovely weekend spent at The Grand. Nothing too much trouble from interested and thoroughly engaged staff. Fabulous room, fabulous view and fabulous experience. The pool was lovely and warm, all public areas spotlessly clean, despite the hotel being busy. One of our favourite places continues to deliver.

We took our grandchild who is a baby to stay. They not only provided a cot but a changing mat, a bath seat and a rubber duck to take home. He ate breakfast messily in their lovely dining room and they couldn't have been kinder. Our room was five star fabulous. We will definitely stay again

Have visited The Grand previously on numerous occasions, several times as a resident and for lunch & dinner. Yesterday was my first time for afternoon tea. Now I have been in the hospitality industry for 36 years and spent a majority of my career as a pastry chef, therefore my expectations from a 5 star hotel are extremely high. To... More

Everything from the front door to the food, to the room amazing. They way you are looked after is great. I would highly recommend this hotel. They say you pay lots at a five star hotel but actually it was really good value for money. Would definitely go back for more and longer !

A most impressive building with street appeal. Our short visit was just before Christmas. The central area decorations were stylish with three huge real Christmas trees decorated very tastefully. The great hall was certainly a place to linger. Our basic priced room was fine, clean, well decorated and with a good bed and bed linen. The restaurant was the weakness... More
