Not as Grand as it would like
Exploring hotels for a weekend away with friends in Spring. This is the Grand Hotel in the party town that is ale Touquet, so worth a try. The hotel is well maintained, we had a Prestige room, the most expensive category before suites, which was very comfortable, so we were happy on check-in. Then the disappointments set in. The noise - there was a party in a nearby villa pumping out music till 3 am. Not the hotel's fault but nevertheless we could not sleep. The room does not have air-conditioning and the room was very stuffy so we had to keep the window open. The party finally quiet ended down at 3am, but other noise continued. The room was just above the hotel entrance and we were kept awake by noisy guests, passers by etc. One of the worst night's sleeps I have had.
Other complaints: shower dripped incessantly, wifi signal was non-existent, and whilst we were given a slip for a complimentary drink in the bar, this wa inserted in the key card case which we did not need to open, so did not find and nobody thought to mention it. Finally the breakfast room was too small, absolutely heaving with no free clean tables when we did finally go down about 9.30.
To be fair the hotel has offered us another night in a similar room for free, and we will take them up on their offer, but It will take a lot to erase the disappointing memories of this weekend.
