Nice enough motel with great views out towards Horn Island. Less than 100m from the Horn Island/Seisia ferries. Good food at good prices in the downstairs restaurant at every meal. Free wifi for a limited duration each day.

Grand Hotel is a beautiful place to stay overlooking the bay; friendly staff, beautiful fluffy towels & bottled water each day in our room. Free use of laundry. Superb food in the restaurant the chef should be complimented - he is outstanding.

Friendly people. The hotel has two options for dinner - a good restaurant with amazing food given how remote this island is, and a friendly bar with basic hamburgers etc. The breakfast is OK but not brilliant. If possible find the extra money for a sea view room - I was in 19 a corner room just spectacular and very... More

Recently refurbished rooms and stunning views of the ocean are hard to beat, add to it friendly and helpful staff and great cuisine with a complimentary breakfast thrown. My 10th stay here and would keep going back.

Hotel is typical of really remote area accommodation. Basic but clean and comfortable enough. Restaurant I the hotel is good and the pub next door does good counter meals. Close to Main Street and the jetty with nice outlook.

For an Iconic establishment with such an awesome outlook Management must have searched long and hard to get such unfriendly and unhelpful staff. This does not include the Hotel Staff who were a different breed and friendly/helpful. My stay was three days and the first thing noted was faulty Air conditioning. Many requests for some repairs were greeted with they... More

Good hotel, clean and nice rooms. Stayed in budget room with no view first night and on second night they upgraded us to a superior room with views of the jetty. $235 a night is up there in price but it is supply and demand. The Jardine down the road is more expensive and a lot further from the jetty.... More

When I booked, only a budget room was available. These are at the back of the property with no view and are situated below the kitchen and dining room so there is noise. The other, and more expensive rooms, are higher up and some have water views. T.I. is costly as everything has to be barged in; the room rate... More

Very convenient after getting off the ferry and with decent views over the bay to Horn Island. Room well furnished, with a large shared balcony. Aircon in my room wouldn't reset though, so made for a hot night. Removing key from room also turns off power, so can't recharge items while out. Staff wonderfully helpful, getting me on a sold...

I did not stay at the Grand, but was taken there for dinner. The food was well cooked and tasty, but, the pork lion I ordered and the veal scallopini that my friend ordered was below expectation in quantity. I received three thin slices and he four tiny thin slices. I felt it was a third or a quarter of... More
