This hotel is closed. We booked it on 30th May to arrive 14th June. When we arrived it had very obviously not been opened this year and is in need of lots of work before it can open. Luckily i was able to phone a friend who said try the Sandringham. I rang them and this was the hotel we... More

This hotel was very cheap, only £150 for 3 nights dinner, B&B (inc' the ferry), so you can not expect 5 stars. The staff were friendly & helpful, and the food was good. The rooms were small, but well equiped. The bathroom was tired, but it all worked. The exterior of the hotel is "distressed" & this can be off... More

We have visited The Grand before. It is in need of a facelift but that does not matter. The Staff, Food and Value for money are beyond question. You get what you pay for, at the Grand you get a bit more. A step back in time. An experience that gives you a glimpse of the past, with the old... More

Grand it is not!! The place needs knocking down. I have never been to a hotel that is so badly misrepresented on a web site. The staff may well be polite but that does not make up for the peeling paint, threadbare carpets, dingy shower room or the so so menu. This hotel should really be condemned.

The Grand has all the feel of an old lady well past her prime. Lurking behind the years of neglect is a potentially stunning hotel. Some beautiful priod features like the pannelling in the dining room make this an interesting place to stay. The room was small, basic but comfortable. Would have liked a shower over the bath but as... More

Well, it sure isn't Grand, but this was our second visit in just over a year. The rooms are small but spotless and surprisingly well furnished, with a decent bathroom. Nothing seems to work, the pool was still out of order, as it was on our last visit, I don't think the lift has ever worked and now they can... More

I'm sure back in the 1930's it was very 'grand'. Now the place looks completely unloved, with peeling paint & broken windows. The first room we were given, the door wouldn't open. Reception said it was because the wrong key had been returned from the previous guest!!!!!!! The 2nd room we were given was clean but it had a broken... More

First impressions are of a rather run-down building, needing at least a lick of paint on the outside and electric light bulbs replaced in the lounge/reception area. Having said that, it's comfortably furnished and the decor is full of period character. Dogs are admitted to the public areas, but not the restaurant. Bedrooms are small but otherwise comfortable - although... More
