We chose The Grand as a special honeymoon treat, and it proved to be more than we could have imagined. A real 5-star experience, but with a friendly and relaxed feel. Cocktails were luxurious, the restaurant food divine, and the rooms are a real treat, with the hotel retaining many of the buildings original features. The staff were happy to...

This imposing Victorian building has converted into a great hotel. It has huge rooms and stairs etc. Bed was excellent and deluxe room was so big that it almost looked a bit sparse. Separate bathroom and toilet/shower all top quality. Service was good around with breakfast and dinner staff all very friendly, knowledgable. Food was very good My ONLY negative...

Fantastic birthday night away. Hotel was lovely and reception were so friendly. Didn't manage to get any treatments in the spa but the pool area was really nice- few noisy kids but I guess it was half term. The only slight thing was the room was a bit too warm despite air con being on full. We went to an...

Just had a brilliant weekend in the Grand for my mother's 80th with all the family. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Lovely rooms with 'turn down' service. The hotel added some extra touches for my mother's birthday. The food is brilliant food at breakfast and dinner - will definitely return!

I would like to give the Grand four and a half stars as I really enjoyed our visit. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very comfortable, quiet rooms. I used the adequate swimming pool twice for exercise. However there were a couple of small quibbles. Why do they feel the need to have pop music at breakfast? None of my party...

Reviewed 31 May 2015

Hotel mostly good; bell boys and other staff chatting to each other at the front of the hotel rather than greeting guests and opening the heavy doors was disappointing. Restaurant food was excellent if one likes, as we did, smallish portions with delicous sauces. Concierge service, especially Graham, was excellent and enhanced our trip considerably. Spa pool was again excellent....

Have read a number of reviews that have been posted.We stayed there in May 2015 as part of our UK trip.Stayed in over 20 hotels around the UK,this was the best hotel. Loved it, Service ,rooms and location were perfect.Would stay here again. The type of service you get is equivalent to the Raffles in Singapore.
