The only thing grand or regal about the Grand Regal is when you drive up from the road onto the front of the hotel. The check in was quite fast and the reception staff were friendly. The room was big and spacious, but a bit dark and very old-style, desperately felt in need of a makeover. Apart from the comfortable king size double bed, there is an armchair with a coffee table, a writing desk with another chair, a small 14" TV (imagine- a genuine antique in this day and age!), a kettle with 2 sachets of 3 in 1 coffee powder, and an adequately stocked minibar/ fridge, and an in-room safe. The bedside console has switches for all the room lights, TV and AC, which was nice. The bathroom was quite big, but again showing the age.
There is free wi-fi in the rooms and common areas which worked well and was reasonably fast. The gym is functional and the pool on the 5th floor sundeck is a bit small, and almost always crowded (also the gym) during the afternoon/ evening time as there are a lot of outside health club members (not hotel guests) who use the gym and pool.
The free breakfast is tasty and has a decent spread, the bar/restaurant in the lobby also had good food and friendly service, though a bit slow. There is a Casino attached to the hotel, so gambling fans will have a good time.
Overall, quite good value for the price, but needs a facelift inside and out...with new competition around, there is no compelling reason to stay here except if you are a gambling fan.
