Nice close to the beach and shops

Posted 27-Feb-2017
Pros: Mentioned above
Cons: Mentioned above
Location: The location of the hotel is good. The beach is across the road. The Lanes are nearby.
I stay at the Grand whenever I visit Brighton. I love the spaciousness,the rooms and the staff are helpful. I do hope the hotel retains its character and the guest rooms remain as spacious as they are now. after the renovations. There isn't a fridge in the room to keep my bottled water chilled.

A great break!

Posted 18-Feb-2017
We booked for 2 nights. It cost quite a lot of money and we were really looking forward to it. When we arrived the room was tiny and really dissapointing. We went back down to reception and the staff were very helpful. They moved us to a much bigger room. It is a shame they didn't give us the bigger room to start with but we had a great stay and the staff were great.

Two day break with my teenage daughter.

Posted 17-Feb-2017
Had a lovely relaxing time in the hotel. Close to shops, Pier and other attractions. Easy walk from railway station. Hotel undergoing refurbishment but this had no impact on our stay. We will definitely be back.

Lovely hotel and an excellent deal with Expedia.

Posted 14-Feb-2017
Pros: Although quite "grand" it felt friendly and comfortable.
Cons: Once the renovations to the exterior have been completed it will be much better.
Location: On the seafront. Within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, cafes and sights.
A beautiful hotel in easy walking distance of shops, sights etc. The rooms were comfortable, a good size and to a high spec. The staff were helpful. Great breakfast. Only downside was scaffolding around the hotel which meant curtains had to remain closed, but not a big problem as only stayed one night.

Faded glory - expensive but not value.

They have gone out of their way to not deliver on the small touches that make the difference.

Great balcony view from the suites, and the cocktails from the main bar were made to perfection. Recommend upgrading to the suite rooms

Best hotel staff team ever. What a nice experience to have stayed at The Grand. This is a real 5 star hotel. Will definitely be back again.

Lovely short break

Posted 07-Feb-2017
I recently took my partner for a short break at the Grand Hotel for his birthday. Overall the stay was fantastic, really friendly staff; in particular the lovely gentleman who greeted us at our car and explained about the parking options & greeted us outside each day with a warm hello. Our only disappointment was failing to receive the room service birthday breakfast we ordered: reception staff said they would 'look into it' but we have heard nothing since. Without this disappointment we would have had the perfect stay.

Seafront hotel

Posted 06-Feb-2017
Pros: Everything.
Cons: The hotel is in the process of being revamped.
Location: Excellent beachfront location. Very close to all shops and restaurants.
The Grand is currently undergoing a major refurbishment. It still has a very opulent interior and bar area. The staff are extremely courteous and efficient. Once the revamp has been completed the Grand Hotel will be the stand out building along the seafront. The rooms are comfortable and clean with all the necessary utilities provided. Brighton seafront is having a 1 billion pound makeover, including things like an outdoor swimming pool, Zip wire and a completely new promenade. I am looking forward to returning once all the works are carried out. Overall, an excellent hotel experience.
