Certificate of Excellence
The Grand Hotel sits prominently on Chase Hill, with some guestrooms offering views of the Kennebunk River and bustling Dock Square. Featuring classic New England architecture and elegantly appointed rooms, the Grand Hotel is the perfect spot to enjoy your Kennebunkport, Maine vacation. With an onsite art gallery, you can indulge yourself in artistic delights while sipping a glass of bubbly. Our boutique hotel on the edge of Kennebunkport has something for everyone! Steps away from the Grand, you'll find exceptional restaurants, diverse art galleries, and charming boutiques. Kennebunkport also offers several beautiful beaches, perfect for soaking up some rays, shell seeking or a family day at the beach. Paddle a kayak and check out the River, or explore Maine's coast. Hop on a bike or scooter and explore Kennebunkport's winding back roads, or enjoy one of our scenic tours on a classic schooner, lobster boat or whale watch.

We enjoyed our winter getaway weekend at the Grand Hotel. It's a small hotel, just three floors, with an art gallery on the ground floor sharing space with hotel reception. Our room was listed as a "classic king." It was cozy without being crowded. The king-sized bed was

Dear LNMP, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, giving us such valuable feedback! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the quiet season here Kennebunkport, the town is so charming during the winter months, but really does come to life in the summer. We would be delighted to have you stay with us again, if you ever see a better rate online, we will always honor that rate when you book directly with us, and that way, we can also ensure you receive a room that meets all your expectations! I'm sorry to hear that you had difficulties with the climate control. We make every effort to provide helpful information within the guest directories located in the rooms, and if we had been informed at the desk, we certainly would have addressed this immediately. Thank you again for your review, we look forward to hosting you again soon! Sincerely, Michelle Sazehn Hotel Manager The Grand Hotel

I came into town with a friend to meet family in town and to spend a night at the new Batson River Brewery right next door. The front-desk clerk was extremely friendly and made the checking-in process easy. The room was beautiful, with very new/clean bathrooms and spacious

Dear Jim L, Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review! We are thrilled to hear what you thought of your room, and so glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the local scene just steps away from the hotel! During the summer months our pricing does change a little, but there's also so many more activities to enjoy such as complimentary kayak, canoe, and stand up paddle board rentals through the Kennebunkport Marina. We certainly hope you will visit us again, regardless of the time of year! Thank you again! Sincerely, Michelle Sazehn Hotel Manager The Grand Hotel

Please contact the hotel directly and we would be happy to assist in checking availability and securing your reservation. Thank you!
