“Excellent stay in Vizag”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

I was booked into the hotel by a client, and was very pleased. The staff were wonderful, very helpful and attentive. Rooms clean, well fitted and equipped. Food is excellent with a great choice. Wifi is extra which in todays modern day is a shame. Otherwise a great nights stay.

Wonderful place on all possible counts. Certainly one of the best ever hotels that I have stayed in - absolute customer delight. Good view of the alluring vizag beach. Excellent Fiama Di Wills toiletries.

Buffet breakfast spread could be better. Speed of service in restaurants could be improved.

Room Tip: ask for the sea view rooms

I have tried all the hotels in Vizag, but staying in Grand Bay has no alternative. The every smiling staff right from you enter the hotel is very welcoming. The hotel staff is ever ready to help you and make your stay at ease. The rooms are good with good sea facing view. You feel more like home at this place where your very well taken care of. Especially after a hard day work when I return in the hotel, the long day what you had, the tiredness goes away when you are welcome with a big smile at the reception. The food is excellent to tickle the hungry tummies.
I would only say that keep up the good work, you people are true professionals.
I am on way to Vizag today and will be checking in the same hotel.

Wonderful location near to Vizag beach. One of the excellent location in india adjecent to beach. two restaurants with indian and continental foods, excellent view of beach from room windows. Hospitality during check in is beyond imagination. Swimming pool is small but well maintained, changing room is adjecent to pool. Evening time is a good time to spend in room watching sun rising.

Delta point for WelcomHotel Grand Bay is the aprking facility.

my booking was made wel in advance. had several talks with hotel n it was clearly told that wud need a sea facing room. to my surprise on checkin i found out that right in front of the hotel there is a big hotel coming up n most of the rooms hav no sea view. was givn a room on 2nd floor with view of the buildging in front, repeated complains only got me to higher floor. pls ensure u take a written guarantee for top floor room or you can be duped. there are other hotels in city with much better rates n rite on d beach. staff were in general a little rude may be due to my repeated complains of no sea view n no hot water.
besides room allocation, didnt like the food much, it was average. buffet was not clean nhad bland food. even my guests had same feedback, room service was little better though slow. anyways,will surely giv it a miss next time in city.

We (me+wife+2 kids) stayed at the ITC Grand Bay for 2 nighs while out on a vacation to Visakhapatnam. The city is also called Vizag for short. The hotel is a bit worn down as compared to other ITC propoerties but then this is a fairly old hotel. The rooms are nice and spacious and the food quality and service in the room was excellent. The staff was warm, polite and very customer centric. I had a 8 pm flight and my request for a late checkout at 6 pm was readily agreed and accepted.

Do remember to ask for a sea facing room as the view is beautiful (though a bit barred by a recent mall which has come up in between).

The only sore point during our stay was the buffet breakfast. Though there was a mix of Indian and Continental fare but the food was not warm or fresh on either day. Esp the continental non-veg items (eg sausages) were of poor quality and replenished after long gaps.

The city itself is beautiful and do remember to stay outdoors than indoors!!
