I and my wife traveled to the Dillkuse with mixed feelings after reading other travellers reports on this hotel. I must say here, that unlike the bbc reviewers, I speak as I find, with no bias for or against any accommodation I may comment on. We traveled down by car and arrived at the Grand to find as other people have a full car park. At reception we were treated as expected guests and quickly passed throuh registering and into our spacious room. We agree that some things could be changed Like the lift only takes two people and cases which on change over day can be a bit of a bind for people who can't navigate stairs. How ever our room and bathroom was clean and serviced by dee every day, the only problem we found here was the matteress which had seen better days and requires a new one.
The hotel meals served in the restauant were found to be of normal standard, full English breakfast, toast cereals, ect and evening meals with a choice of menu including starter main and sweet including coffee and a free glass of wine to start the meal.
Drinks at the bar I found were inclusive of our package and was a nice surprize
The hotel has a plesent atmosphere, with a ballroom for entertainment and a quiet lounge for the not so adventurous, All in all a pleasent place for a short break or a full holiday week.
I would certainly go back as my trip was curtailed by illness , The hotel manager and staff were very helpfull in this respect ,and I send my thanks to them.
