We were attending a family birthday close by and had booked three rooms. All rooms were large, airy and had everything that we wanted ... Very comfortable. Only complaint that I would have was the breakfast menu which appeared to be aimed at walk-ins where everything was priced. We had to double check with the waitress that we actually had... More

We stayed for one night with two small kids. There was nothing the staff wouldn't do for us, particularly Damien. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. A very homely feel to it, excellent food, staff, service and great value for money. Will definitely be returning.

I stayed here for a weekend with some friends. The staff were really nice, and the restraunt did good food at a good price. The rooms are quite large, and were clean and tidy. I would suggest The Grand Hotel to anyone staying in Moate.

Called in for food and got a lovely steak. The 10 oz. the nicest I've had in a long while. Lovely pepper sauce. Didn't really like layout of restaurant, it was like sitting in the middle of an old irish pub. Slightly uncomfortable and very close to other people. Only comp,ain't however as food was very good and reasonably priced.

Visited the carvery with my parents in mid July 2014. Although there was nothing there to interest my mother, the lady behind the carvery immediately made her a top quality chicken salad, very tasty and fully fresh. My father and I had the burger and it was delicious, as was the desert. The place is very clean and the staff... More

We were surprised to find this Grand Hotel still open long after the Motorway bypassed the town of Moate. Open it was though and the carvery was still in operation and a good sized group of people were enjoying the food and atmosphere (we were not staying at the hotel as guests). The food was plentiful and fresh. The staff... More
