I needed a hotel close to the railway station as I was on my own and didn't want too far to walk with heavy bags etc. You know what its like ladies, we take far too much away with us...well it was perfect, almost next door. There is also a Crispy Cream doughnut shop just over the road and they open at 0630, so time to grab some for your journey. The Grand is a lovely old building and I asked for a quiet room if poss. this was done and I had a studio room on floor 6 on spencer street, there is trafic noise but it is a city hotel and to be expected, the windows are double glazed. I had a big balcony too, nice for a bit of fresh air. the bathroom was nice and clean as was the kitchen area, good bath products too. Most important was the bed, it was FABULAS really comfy, nice pillows aswell. I was only in the hotel from 2100- 0645 so no meals so I can't coment on the food. The staff were very friendly on check-in and when I left offering all sorts of help. All in all a very good night and I would certainly use this hotel again
