We checked in to be told we had been 'upgraded' to a larger room which turned out to be the disabled room at the bottom of the stairs. Yes, the room was large but it had NO view and one tiny window. Lucky the aircon worked and we weren't staying more than one night but I would have loved to... More

Stayed here whilst on work trip. Was able to walk from the ferry terminal to the hotel. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Was lucky enough to be there for Schnitzel night! Meal was out within minutes and you cannot complain about the size or taste. Meal was delicious. Tried the restaurant but found it to be a little expensive... More

This is the best place I have stayed on TI, and over the years I have stayed at all of them. Rooms are small but clean and the service is good. My only complaint is the large smokers deck area is too close to the rest of the bar/restaurant areas.

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.
