“Avoid the Grand”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2005

A rather tired railway hotel which has seen better days. The rooms are not particularly cheap at €60-€80 for a double with bathroom and breakfast is an additional €8. Breakfast itself was appalling with bitter perculated coffee from a leaking urn and rather chewy croissants.

The hotel is part of a large block which incorporates a couple of reasonable looking restaurants, but watch out for the disco. We were disturbed by about 30 noisy punters being kicked out at around 4 am Sunday morning, some of whom proceeded to have a fight. The police were quite useless and we were worried about our car which was parked in the hotel bay. I suspect this is a regular weekend occurrance.

Quite honestly, the whole thing needs pulling down and in the meantime you'd find better value at the local Ibis. I will also be writing to the hotel about this when I have found their website.

The Grand was probably just that 50-years ago, but sadly no longer.
Rooms and the hotel in general are past their best.
Our room had a comfortable large bed, TV, writing table and a mini-bar. No aircon which was a problem in the heat.
There was a small bathroom and seperate WC.
There is secure parking though and it is just outside the railway station, about a 10-minite walk from the centre of town.
Breakfast was a rushed cold buffet with the usual fresh breads and pastries.
The hotel has morphed a new Patiotel alongside and this may be the better option but for one night as we stopped off en-route south the Grand was acceptable.
Plus points were the price, just 60 or so Euros in September 2004 and the staff were friendly.
