Wonderful hotel, staff, food and facilities.
see above. However, we were given a room overlooking the car park with buses parking directly under our window. Buses, one in the afternoon and another early the following morning, both kept their engines running for aprox 40 minutes. This together with constant car alarms sounding throughout the night ensured that I was unable to rest on Saturday afternoon and unable to sleep on Saturday night. I had a long drive home on Sunday and was exhausted.
This will not deter me from staying at the Grand again but I suggest that bus drivers are asked to switch engines off and guests asked to switch off car alarms when they activate.
