This was our first visit to the Grand Hotel and hopefully not our last. Shortly after arriving the manager made himself known to us - what a pleasant change from those who stay in their office keeping a low profile. All staff at this hotel were very pleasant, polite and helpful. The choice and quality of food was excellent bearing... More

The last time it was decorated must have been in the 1980s. Someone must have complained about the door handle so they had tied a piece... 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
