Yes, I loved those stairs, sweeping! This hotel was easy to find and walk to from the Whangarei Information Centre. Staff were easy to talk to and deal with. Its a little bit strange walking out of the building, around the corner into a bar/pub and then booking with bar staff, but I think they wear all hats. I did... More

Check in had no record of booking, room was not as shown on site. No service at all, 40 watt bulb, couldn't read. Electric blanket but cord could not reach the plug. Felt like the hotel that time forgot. Could be quaint, but it ain't.!!

Having been here personally twice and in both instances, a one-night stay with a large group of people (~30 to 40), this hotel has great rooms, location, service, and price. The Grand Hotel has respectably clean rooms and comfy beds - also, the showers are great. The location is absolute fantastic being mere minutes’ walk away from the city’s centre.... More

Passing through travelling from far north to Auckland we needed somewhere to stay the night - the only reason for choosing this easy option. The positives were the walking distance to restaurants, clean linens and the fun fact that Queen Elizabeth ll had stayed in our room in the 50's (room or hotel doesn't seem to have been updated since)....

I have stayed at The Grand Hotel three times this year, and after visiting hotels all around the world, I can say that this place is value for money. The rooms are clean and comfortable, each with a nice, tidy bathroom. Our room also had an air conditioner, fridge and small flat screen tv. They have older style decor, which... More

Very friendly staff and manager. It has everything you need and very reasonable standard. It was comfortable, clean and the security there is great. An all round family atmosphere with a beautiful Thai restaurant. Would highly recommend anyone to this hotel. Thank you to the staff and management for the stay.

The grand was well accommodating for our needs and they were great. Mike and his team were great. The grand was low priced and the rooms were comfortable. The bar was great as well. Loved it will be back. Thanks Mike and the team.
