We had a weekend stay and the weather was fantastic - which always helps. Hotel was all you expect the Grand to be. Dining room (for breakfast) looks a little tired but the breakfast itself was excellent. Lots of choice. Room with balcony and sea view was superb. Staff were brilliant. No complaints..
Hotel was easy to find. Small things count like being able to pull up at the front on a busy'ish highstreet, whilst checking in & arranging car parking (which was very secure). Hotel staff were very welcoming & accommodating. Room was upgraded at no extra cost & the general layout was very nice on the eye.
If your looking for normal, this is not it. The hotel is very alternative which was to my liking. Room was spacious & very stylish/modern. (The photos don't lie) Clean & well presented. No noise complaints with regard to our room location.
Location wise, its less than 10 minutes from the Sea Front at Snails pace. Completely surrounded by amenities & a good selection of restaurants.
I would undoubtedly recommend this hotel if your looking for "different" from the normal Seaside hotel.... enjoy!

I liked this hotel. It is right across from the pier but not as noisy as I feared. The room was small but clean and bright and generally comfortable. The bathroom was the shower which I had never experienced before and it was a little odd but if that doesn't discomfit you then I'd recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This was a really good find. Just on the edge of the action, so perfect for a good sleep, but with everything right there.
The staff were friendly, the whole building is in really good condition and the rooms were clean and well presented.
The big surprise was the breakfast. Not just a plate of limp pastries; but a good selection of hot and cold food.
It was a bit pricey and maybe we're just getting what we paid for; but better that than paying any being disappointed!!
Would definitely stay here again.
Staff were really nice and they views were nice. The bathroom needed a bit of refurbishing tiles were broken etc and the windows were quite annoying at night because it was windy and they kept banging open and closed and we couldn't shut them properly
On the south English coast, Brighton is a popular beach destination, especially with Londoners as the train ride between the two cities is less than an hour. The seafront has bars, restaurants, nightclub,s and amusement arcades, as well as two old-fashioned piers. Brighton hosts the Brighton Festival each May, which is the UK's second-largest arts festival.
