Shearings and Bay Hotels love to put us in higher level rooms, can well imaging they were basic servants quarters originally in these old houses, they seem to follow a typical pattern of tape-patched grotty carpet, loud creaking floors, very poor lighting and a water supply to the basin that would require a weeks notice if it had to fill...

My husband and I booked a Mon to Fri break (self drive) holiday at this hotel. We upgraded to a superior room with a sea view and it was so worth it, the room was big, very clean and with all the amenities that we needed, we were very comfortable and the sea view was lovely. We found all staff... More

We stayed at the grand in august. It is well situated on the front only over the road from the nice beach. It needs to be done up as it is a bit tired looking inside. The food service is good but the meal sizes are smaller than last year. I thought i was on a diet. It was like... More

Did a three night break to catch up with old friends. The reception and bar areas are pleasant and we had a welcome check in from friendly staff. The corridors to the rooms are quite grubby and in need of redecoration but the hotel itself is clean and comfortable. The staff do a grand job. The bedroom was clean and... More

We arrived later than expected due to M5 closure and 5 hours of traffic, we were greeted by a miserable looking porter who grunted at us under his breath. We had pre-booked a parking space but were told as we were late it had been given to another guest. Parking is diabolical here. Our room was small and we immediately... More

We do not allow animals in the Hotel. Your Parking was not given away to another guest, because you arrived late you would have been allocated a space at our sister hotel across the road. We do offer very good value for the price paid, and we do get some fantastic reviews. We are always striving to improve and we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bay Grand Hotel enjoys a superb position on the seafront opposite Golden Sands Beach. The hotel benefits from fantastic views across the Exe Estuary towards Dawlish Warren. The Hotel is set in a Crescent of elegant houses - the first crescent of its kind to be built in Devon with every house facing the sea. Panoramic views across Lyme Bay and the estuary can be seen from all front facing rooms along with Drakes Bar, lounges and our relaxing gardens. The Regency entertainment suite and bar provide the perfect place to unwind. Exmouth is the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast stretching as far as Dorset and is renowned for its red cliffs and sand dunes. An ideal resort to explore the rest of Devon, it also boasts an old fashioned promenade and stunning Georgian architecture. ... more   less
