Cheap but dirty with a hospital feel

Posted 26-Apr-2015
The hotel carpets and walls are stained and unkempt.. good location but smelly. Beds were clean so ok for a night only! Like an oap nursing home and breakfast your like cattle... Pay an extra tenner to upgrade out of the dungeon rooms!

Was okay...

Posted 21-Apr-2015
We had a window at least, but with a huge gap in the frame my finger fit through. Room was a bit small, but we only went for a basic room, so didn't expect much. Bathroom smelt funny and there was a huge mark in the bath from a crack in the enamel. Due to the placement of our room, going to sleep before 11 was impossible as we were close to the cabaret bar. We were also woken at 4am by someone in an adjoining room moving about. Possibly opening and closing drawers? It sounded like they were roller skating though! And after that finished, I could hear someone else snoring. Either they were ridiculously loud or the walls are thin. I know what my money is on! Breakfast was terrible. Perfect if you want somewhere basic. Not so perfect if you like to sleep.

My husband and I stayed for one night, dinner bed and breakfast. The room was very clean and the staff very helpful. The hotel, obviously, is a little dated with facilities but for the overall experience it is worth a visit.

Anything but grand

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: More staff, they all seemed rushed off their feet
Location: Bang on the seafront and in the town centre so stunning location, loads of things to do, shops, pubs, attractions ect.
A room below ground level and a bad smell of damp, not a good start, there was no window (due to being in the basement). Was not in room long enough to grade comfort or cleanliness, the hotel was full so could not pay for an upgrade but in the end the hotel got us a room at their sister hotel across the road. A massive shame as the views of the seafront were amazing. We had gone away with friends so could have done without the hassle but the other hotel more than made up for the initial disappointment.

Weekend stay

Posted 06-Apr-2015
Pros: Very grand public areas; large breakfast room which meant no waiting for a table.
Cons: Check-in arrangements.
Location: Great location - close to sea front and town centre. Everything in walking distance.
We stayed at The Grand for a scooter weekend. All good apart from the check-in arrangements which were poor. Information told us check-in was from 2pm. We arrived around 3.30pm to find a huge queue. It took over an hour to reach the front of the queue. Several announcements were made saying the staff were going as fast as they could and that there were 3 receptionists on. I'm sure the staff were doing their best, but 3 receptionists were not enough, particularly as some check-ins appeared to be taking up to 10 minutes. Very frustrating and not a good start to the weekend. Everything else was fine. Room was clean and warm. Only issue was that the TV was rather old - limited channels and no radio channel.

mini break

Posted 09-Mar-2015
Pros: The appearance and history of the hotel.
Cons: Rooms need a revamp please put butter beside bread and more toasting machines would be helpful.
Location: It is a short walk to sea front and likewise to shops. Perfect for everything.
My partner and i have stayed here a few times. I love the appearance and the history of the hotel, however the rooms are becoming a bit shabby. Whilst the bed was very comfortable and room size was quite adequate the bathroom and furniture were very worn. We were disturbed a couple of times with dogs barking i am a dog lover and have one myself but i dont wish to share my hotel with them [ our preferences ]. At breakfast you can certainly not fault the staff clearing tables quickly and very helpful but and it might have just been when we were there water was'nt hot enough for tea need more toasting machines please, and why is'nt the butter beside the bread? There is entertainment on a night including bingo plenty to do.
