I visited the Grand for the champagne afternoon tea for a friends special birthday. From the time we arrived we were delighted. The doormen, the concierge and the staff were aware that our being there was a surprise for the birthday girl, and took steps to ensure that she didn't realise we were waiting for her. She was fussed over...

We have stayed here several times and always loved it. We stay in the Debussy Suite which has a lovely big balcony with uninterrupted views of the sea and we like to spend the whole weekend out there with coffee, reading and watching the world go by. Unfortunately, this was the second trip in a row spoilt by people smoking...

The room was really lovely with a huge bathroom. The bed was super comfortable and we both slept well every night. The shower was great; powerful and...

We have just returned from a lovely two night winter break. We were upgraded to an executive room with side seaview which was luxuriously appointed and very spacious. The enormous king size bed was supremely comfortable and the bedding and pillows of very high quality. The emphasis is on comfort here. There are thick white towelling robes and matching slippers...

I booked a room for my last night in the UK, after an emotional couple of weeks there following a family bereavement. I had a deluxe double ensuite room. On booking check in was stated as 3pm, and I arrived at about 10.30 am hoping only to be able to stash my luggage until the designated check in. I was...

This is a stunning hotel. The staff are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We arrived and left the car with uniformed staff for parking. On check in (a Saturday) we were offered a wake-up call and complimentary Sunday Times. When going for an evening stroll before dinner, someone suggested a quiet route for us. We loved the whole atmosphere and really...

I stayed at the grand with my other half for a 3 night break in a suite. The rooms were superb. Very clean and well equipped and cleaned daily. The maids even made an evening visit to prepare the rooms. Toiletries supplied were abundant and all Molten Brown. We had dinner in the Mirabelle on the first evening which was...
