4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
An amazing position on the cliff looking over the bay at Swanage meant it was well worth having a sea view room. The room was small and a little dated, the bed desperately needs replacing being very soft, saggy and lumpy. The public areas of the hotel were all comfortable, pleasant and in good repair.The gardens were easily accessable with lots of chairs and tables. Direct access to the beach, and then along to the town centre, is down a lot of steps but it is easy to walk back via the road to save the steep climb on return. Staff were all efficient and very pleasant therefore we had a very pleasant stay.

A good experience in terms of the cleanliness, staff and food. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful,thank you. The hotel was a little “tired” but did not take anything away from our stay during difficult times. Well done Grand Hotel.

short break in Swanage.
Hotel was lovely,check-in quick and easy.Temperature taken on arrival with sanitizers everywhere.Breakfast was very good.Had a room with a seaview which was lovely on a sunny morning.The only reason didn't give the hotel full thumbs up is because I wasn't informed before I booked that the spa and pool were closed...only after I booked and would have cost me money to cancel.
