Stayed for one night ,as had booked a show at embassy.Roger the owner is a very nice guy,we did not have time to cancel a single room which was booked for my daughter,until we were about to leave,we were told it wasent a problem & assured me he would not charge us,true to his word i had a full refund a few days after.My wife & i have stayed here before,& we have always been impressed with not only the hotel,but the breakfast is second to none,only grumble we had,is we had to come home.

I stayed for two nights in early October as we had a funeral to go to nearby. The hotel staff and owners were all very attentive, pleasant and helpful. It was nice to spend time in a cosy home from home.

Room Tip: Room 5 although at the back was very roomy and quiet.

Stayed for two nights end of September. Very clean hotel. Wide breakfast selection all nicely presented. All staff made every effort to impress. Had a nice sea view room which was well furnished, a good size and overlooked the pitch and putt green. Just one small problem was the lack of a lift to get two floors up but even then staff helped carry cases. There were chair lifts to each floor but one was very tired with my weight.

we arrived at skegness and decided to stay the night, this hotel was the only hotel with rooms left and they only had 1, the staff were excellent and the reception was open after 8pm so we were able to book/check in. we got our key and went up few flights of stairs to the very top of the hotel into what seemed to be a loft conversion. the room was small and in places had lack of head room but it did have an en suite which was suprising due to the room size also it had a balcony which looks out onto the road (north parade) the bed was comfortable and the room had all the facilities you would expect like kettle/drink making facilities and tv but no phone? we had a peaceful nights sleep with no disturbances but we went off season so not sure what it would be like during the main season. In the morning we went down to the dining room which was very pokey. Not much room but the grub was good overall this was a pleasant stay and would go again but at £75 walk in price may think about booking in advance.

Just back from 7 days at the Grand hotel where I took my elderly parents. I read some reviews that left me daunted at what to expect yet these were totally unjustified in our visit. In fact mum and dad had their best time in ages. On arrival our hosts were very helpfull in every way and stepped above our needs at every opportunity and were very friendly to all guests.Rooms were clean, appealing, warm and fully equiped. The cleaning staff were very friendly and helped you feel at home. Our hosts offered to make sandwiches as and when required in the evenings which was a great help with mum and dad. Nothing was too small, and all went to make mum and dads break special. Stayed in no 7 with a lovely balcony and a great view of the sea front.
Our hosts even placed extra seating so that we could all enjoy the view from the balcony.The breakfast was a treasure and even got dad eating well after a lengthy hospital stay.
Thanks to Roger and Shirley and all staff. We will be back.

Just got back from spending 3 days at The Grand, this is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel and will definitely go for a 4th.
We chose a sea view room and the view was second to none, we spent a few times on the balcony watching the world go by.
The room, although on the small side was ample, you don't go on holiday to sit in a hotel room and the balcony more than compensated for it, it was spotless and had everything we needed,comfy bed,flat screen TV , tea/ coffee making facilities which were replenished everyday and plenty of storage space, the en suite bathroom was lovely and clean and the shower was the best we had ever had.
Breakfast is brilliant...buffet style and eat as much as you like, it consists of fruit salad which I think contained every fruit possible, grapefruit, fruit juices, yogurt, toast, bacon,sausage, eggs, beans,tomatoes and mushrooms and a choice of tea or coffee and the waitress was lovely, I think she has a permanent smile.
The bar was lovely, it had been " done up" since the last time we went .we sat and had a drink with Roger the host who is very friendly as is his wife.

Didn't want to come home but as they say. " all good things must come to an end" but will return next holiday

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room well worth the extra
