I have been visiting TI for close on 3 years for work, I have previously been booked at another Motel but this time I chose The Grand as not happy with the other. Well the Grand is great. Fast check in and out, free good WiFi, great restaurant, good bar, nice room, great buffet breakfast. I will always stay there... More

The location is great - close to McDonald's Ferry terminal and the Main Street area. Meals in the restaurant and adjoining pub were very good. Buffet breakfast is included and was great quality. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was great and exceeded my expectations (ocean view at the front if the property). Very clean and well maintained.... More

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
