Booked afternoon tea for our anniversary and was expecting great things from this 5 star hotel....travelled 30 miles to come here. We waited quite a while to be served and a further wait for the tea etc to be brought to us. When we needed a tea refill, there was nobody about and I had to go and search for... More

We were unlucky and had a dodgy room.. it was a little unclean, quite dated and damaged in places (maintenance was very poor). The bathroom was horrible. We were moved to another room when I complained and it was a lot better to be fair (less damage and poor maintenance etc). It's not cheap to stay here so I was... More

The Grand hotel is beautiful but completely outdated. Very much geared toward the baby boomers crowd. As young couple with dog I have to say that their polices didn't exactly leave us feeling welcomed. We discussed our disapointment with their staff who were extremely gracious and did their best to accommodate. While I understand that the majority of their customers... More

This was lovely! It was so good to be treated with respect and a courteous approach by all members of staff! The food and service was wonderful! We had a marvelous time and look forward to returning. The only criticism was the bed size, would have loved at least a king size bed! Either that, or we will loose weight... More

This is supposed to be a five star hotel. I would not call it that by American standards but it was a lovely place to stay. The decor is supposed to be reminesence of the late 1800s early 1900s and the dining room and foyer do come across that way. Thought he flies need to be removed from a lot... More

I can't begin to express how much I enjoyed my recent stay at the Grand. Staff were always hospitable, polite, but, most importantly, caring. My card key had a problem, and the lady at reception was so keen to help me, just because she wanted our stay to be the very best; there was no sense of duty or majority.... More

We recently stayed at the Grand Hotel, to celebrate my birthday. This is a lovely hotel with great service. We had a recently refurbished room which was great. We were very happy with the Garden Restaurant and it is a rare find to find such a lovely comfortable lounge with live music at the weekend. We enjoyed dancing to the... More

Stayed at this Hotel last weekend for a familiy wedding held in the hotel. Extremely efficient and friendly/polite staff from the moment I got into the car park until I left the following day.
