We stayed one night here in the grand hotel, how I wish it were for longer. Fabulous hotel in the heart of town.. As other reviewers have said on arrival we too had a complimentary box of chocolates which was a really nice touch. The room was fabulous and the bath and shower room were fab with heated floor control ! The welcome we had was very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel and should we ever return to the kennebunks we will certainly stay here. We also received a goody bag to take with is which was a welcome surprise.

Dear Mumintheuk,
Thank you very much for the lovely review. We love giving the chocolates just as much as the guests enjoy eating them! The next time that you are in the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area we hope that you will choose the Grand Hotel as you home away from home.
Sincerely,
The Grand Hotel

Complimentary chocolates on arrival - always a good start. Our room was a very good size with a lovely en-suite. The hotel was in easy walking distance of the shops, amenities and boat trips. It was our favourite hotel of 8 we stayed in during our holiday in New England.

Dear Mark C,
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Isn't it great that once your car is parked you are able to walk everywhere. We are within a few steps to great shopping and restaurants, which makes it very convenient to explore Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. We hope that the next time you decide to travel across the pond that you will consider staying with us again!
We look forward to see you again.
Sincerely,
The Grand Hotel

The Grand is located right in downtown Kennebunk which is really nice because downtown is right outside of your door. The room was clean and decorated very well. The staff couldn't have been kinder. They greeted us with nice box of chocolates to help celebrate our anniversary and sent us off with a bag of goodies before we got on the road. We will definitely be back!

We came to Kennebunkport for a wedding and booked 3 rooms with family members. We all got 3rd floor king suites (305, 306 & 308). Many of the other wedding guests decided to stay on the water but we wanted to be in town. This hotel was absolutely perfect for our interests. We loved being within walking distance of EVERYTHING. No parking issues, no stress of getting around. We are runners so we were able to do a 4-6 mile run each day down to Beach Ave and around back to Western Ave or an out and back. If you're runners you will LOVE the run. The hotel had cruiser bikes that we didn't get a chance to ride but friends did and reallye enjoyed touring the neighborhoods and exploring the other areas (they told us they did walk some hills). I would, without a doubt, come back here if I didn't have my kids. My only complaint was that we paid the same rate in 305 as my family members did for 306 & 308. I would HIGHLY suggest trying for 306 - it is a huge room with double closets and plenty of space. Room 308 (and I saw 307 as it was getting cleaned) were equally as spacious but not as spacious as 306. Our room was TINY. It was a bit of a disappointment, but not one that would deter us. The soaps, showers, heated floors, etc. were excellent quality.

The hotel was in a great location. We were able to walk everywhere but they even had bikes you could borrow. The hotel was also super clean and very nicely decorated. The staff was super nice and accommodating.

For our first Maine/Kennebunk experience, we could not be more delighted with our choice of the Grand Hotel. What a perfect spot for use as a base for a 4 day stay. You are spoiled by the beauty of the area and all Kennebunkport has to offer during daily excursions and continue being spoiled when returning to the Grand. It is the perfect location with easy walks to the village for restaurant and shops or just gawking at the beauty of the area. In addition to accommodations being a great value, the staff at the Grand add to the experience. Providing suggestions and options for sight seeing, food, shopping and the overall southern coastal Maine experience were invaluable. You don't get that everywhere and based on our experience, the Grand will be the spot we come to when we schedule our next visit. In addition, our daughter wanted to provide us with an early anniversary gift during our stay. Marlene was instrumental in helping the daughter arrange the surprise we discovered when returning to our room. Thank you for a great experience!!
