Booked by friends for a weekend stay, I wanted to cry when I was told where we were staying following last year's horrendous weekend. The lobby still has not changed with large queues attempting to check in, coach parties included, why is there nobody to help the older generation with their cases into the hotel? Room a little better than... More

Waiting over 30 minutes to gain entrance to the restaurant. Running out of wine red/white on Saturday night,... More

The hotel location is great and you can get rooms with a 'sea view' however beware that the view is mainly of the netting that is down the side of the hotel which ruins that view somewhat. The hotel itself is a little tired which is a shame as it's got so much potential. The rooms are basic but have... More

We have stayed at the Grand on a few occasions but have always booked the Turret Room which is now called a Penthouse Room.
