Me and my friend stayed for one night at The Grand Hotel, and I am so glad it was just the one! Checking in was easy and quick enough, but the receptionist failed to inform us that our room was in the basement, so we were walking around for a while before another guest had to help us find our room. Where our room was placed seemed to be so out the way, it felt like if anything happened that no one would even know we were there!
We booked a double club room for £24, but I honestly wouldn't pay that knowing what I know now. There was no window in our room, obviously, and the radiator was on full blast with a fan placed on top of the television also on full blast. The radiator got switched off straight away because the room was stuffy enough. The bathroom also smelt like someone had just used it. We figured out that it must have been coming through the extractor fan. Sure enough we got 3 towels, but the glasses on the sink had lipstick marks on them. There was also a huge spider in the bathroom, and as someone who hates spiders, I was repulsed.
The television was also so low on the ground that you couldn't see it from the bed, and all five channels were fuzzy. The room, in short, was depressing. After going back to our room after a night out, guests near to our room were screaming at each other, and started knocking on our door at 4am! Surely security should have heard all this commotion? Speaking of security, we forgot our key card and had to plead with them to let us back into the hotel, even though we had our actually key and receipt with us. 2 hours sleep in total, we got because of that. Doors slamming all night from other rooms, too. We never managed to get breakfast because of the sheer amount of people there, but after reading some other reviews I think that's a good thing. I have to agree with others also about the small lifts and sort of musky smell. Not good.
