This is our third time staying at the Grand in a sea facing family room. The room was lovely and clean comfortable beds, would have been nice if we had proper duvets instead of blankets but that was not a major issue. The staff are very polite and could not be more helpfull, breakfast also lovely. We swam every day the indoor pool, jacuzzi and the sauna very nice as well as the outdoor heated pool. The changing rooms could be a little cleaner though and cleaned more often (e.g: 2-3 times aday). A few moans though: I think the hotel needs updating. Some parts of the frond floor is tired and worn and need money spent on it. Also some of the rooms need to be more modern. The parking is a big issue as well. There is nearly never a parking space and the capacity of guests the hotel will hold there is no were near enough parking spaces. From previous stays the food is not as good and there needs to be more variety on the compass bar menu. Overall the hotel holds a very good position looking over Torquay but the hotel just need a little more attention to detail and some money spent on it.
