We stayed in the Grand Canal Hotel last Saturday night as part of a theatre deal. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with such friendliness, from the receptionist to the bar staff, restaurant staff and especially breakfast staff. The atmosphere in the hotel is one of friendless and home. Dinner was very tasty and served with a smile. Breakfast was so enjoyable the next day and this was done so by an especially friendly waiter called Bert (can’t remember spelling of name) – he even came out with a take away coffee for us both on leaving as he knew we had a long journey home. The experience was one of relaxation and total chilling. The only fault I would have and I think they are in the process of working on this...is certain parts of the interior are very old and worn, down to the table mats on the table. The reception desk that you wait at to be seated, is very worn and tattered looking and does not give a good impression. I need to have everything looking right to feel that everything is also right in the kitchen etc. This was really the only complaint. Would defiantly recommend the Grand Canal Hotel if you want a friendly experience. Well done all.
