We booked the Grand Victorian as I needed a family room for a short break overnight at the coast. I had read the previous reviews and did not have deluxe expectations but it seems to be things that can be rectified that let the Hotel down. Simply cleanliness is not expensive.
I arrived and used one of their 4 parking space in an area at the back of the hotel. This area was strewn with rubbish and old bottles. Check in was smooth and staff very polite . The lobby had character and was pleasant. The room itself was on the frst floor (2US) and did have a damp smell to it. Everything was just tired, with carpets needing a good steam clean, light fittings loose, TV on its last legs and torn wallpaper. That said the sheets and towels were fresly laundered and in good order. I will say that there was no noise overnight even with nightclub below and heating and window ventilation was good.
In the morning we took breakfast in the conservatory, again a nice setting but the seats were stained and table needed revarnishing. Hot options were buffet style and cereal was available as well as juice and toast.
All in all the price was reasonable but the hotel had the potential to be so much better if attention was given to redecorating and using the Victorian charm of the building with high ceilings and wood panels.
We had had a satisfactory stay but would only come again if it changed hands or had an extensive revamp.
