We stayed at the Grand for 3 nights as part of an organised tour (by Inghams) of Slovenia and Croatia and so had no choice of hotel or room category. The hotel is very nice and spread over 4 former Austro- Hungarian villas which are indeed very nice and very grand. There are some nice outdoor spaces to enjoy drinks in the good weather. We particularly liked the terrace at the Grand Café where they serve fantastic cakes, coffees etc.
Our standard room was nice and had a spacious balcony with side views of the sea. The ensuite shower room although very small was nice and looked newly refurbished.
The restaurant was huge with both breakfast and dinner served buffet style. There was a wide choice of food at breakfast but we felt that the quality of the food was disappointing.
We have never taken buffet style dinner before and we won’t be opting for the option again – dinner for us should be good food served to the table and well presented. This was more of a canteen experience and on the final night of our stay nothing more than a ‘bun fight’- we made 2 attempts to get a table in the restaurant. On our 2nd attempt we joined a couple from our party but did have to set the crockery ourselves. There were tables piled with dirty pots as guests attempted to clear tables themselves. The waiters were running round like headless chickens doing their best to cope. I complained to the Manager (I use the title loosely) who told me that he had 650 guests to 265 seats! He simply didn’t care but we did and for this reason alone we would not recommend this hotel.
