An anathema for me!
Great breakfast and staff. But I found the decor of the Grand Hotel bedrooms totally depressing. The ripped/ patched wall paper, the cold towel rail in the bath room, the topless taps, the stained carpets, the broken safe that could not be fixed. The lack of additional blankets/ bedding in the wardrobe sad - the duvet on the bed was wafer thin. I know there is an upgrade in progress, but some of these items don't need an upgrade to fix. Come on De Vere Hotels, if you are going to charge these prices, make some investments now.
We spoke to the front desk about our concerns - they were polite but clearly we were not the first to air similar views!
On a positive note, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. A bonus given what they have to work with. So well done to them.
The buffet breakfast extensive and delicious! Well done to the chefs!
