Stayed here for valentines day in Feb 2014, was fantastic from start to finish. Hotel is huge with a lot character. Bit more up market than what I am used to, so having a harp playing you some music in the reception area and the reception chap lending me his suit jacket for dinner was surreal. The food in the...

Just got back from a one-night stay at the Grand Hotel. It is a bit over-priced for what you get - but the room was decent enough. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast in the morning was all right. There was a noise from the bathroom extractor fan that was a bit unusual and annoying, but other than that we enjoyed...

My husband & I stayed here for 1 night as a special anniversary treat in March 2015. Having reviewed the hotel we booked an Executive Sea view room at a cost of £285 for bed and breakfast. My first impression as I walked into the room was one of disappointment. The room, although resembling the photo's on the website, looked...

Our second experience of afternoon tea at the Grand. Cannot fault the attentive service from all the staff. The hotel has a dated feel as do a large percentage of its clients, but that is part of its charm and I suspect that others may even put us in this category. This may explain why I find it such a...

We have been to this hotel a few times but this was a one nighter over a bank holiday weekend. From the moment we entered the car park we were treated amazingly well by all staff that we interacted with. Lovely room with a sea view at the front of the hotel.

This is probably one of the last period 5* hotels. An ambiance of a bygone era, not spoilt by modern additions etc. Very comfortable bedroom. Both restaurants highly recommended. The staff were very efficient, helpful and friendly from the initial booking onwards. The only downside was the service in the lounge, this was slow, we thought they'd gone to Brazil...

Stayed hear before ( 2011 ). Thought I'd booked the same room but when were shown our "Junior Suite" it was tiny to say the least. For a family of 4 ( children aged 10 and 12 ) this accommodation is totally unsuitable. But reception were able to find us a "Suite" at additional cost of £120 per day. This...

Stayed for 2 nights a few weeks ago as a base for seeing friends and exploring the area. Exceptionally good service all round with willing helpers abounding for luggage, local facilities and internet provision. Basically you are treated very well. This was epitomised when my husband ordered a fried egg for breakfast as they were not available on the self-service...
