This hotel is geared up to receive all-inclusive coach parties who enjoy old-fashioned entertainment and bingo, and is perhaps less suited to those who want a quiet, relaxing break. Staying on a bed and breakfast basis, we had a comfortable bed (although of an ugly design, a so-called 'four poster' but with no hangings, just a tacky wooden frame that...

I paid nearly £400 for a three night B&B break at the Grand. The price included £42 for a sea view: fair enough. I paid £15 to reserve parking, only to be told on arrival that parking was 'on a first come, first served basis', i.e reserved parking is not honoured. True, we were offered a parking spot at another...

Thank you for your review. I was very alarmed to read your review, regarding the parking, we have 15 spaces here at the Grand, and 10 spaces at the Imperial Hotel which is part of our group, we work it on a first come first served basis, which was explained to you when you arrived at the hotel reception.

I was in a single room which I paid a supplement for. I was offered no assistance getting my luggage into the hotel or to my room which was up a flight of stairs. Then I had to park my car 5 minutes away and after a 2 hour drive and lugging my luggage around that wasn't welcomed. The bathroom...

We had three pleasant nights in the hotel in a superior room with great views over the bay. The room was clean and tidy but we were surprised that there was no shower in the bathroom.

We have been to many, many Bay hotels throughout the UK. Standards are definitely slipping and this has to be the worst one ever. We checked out a day earlier than planned due to the bad experience and man on reception couldn't have cared less. We assume staff are not paid much as waiters told us all looking for other...

The staff was friendly helpful and welcoming on arrival.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bay Grand Hotel enjoys a superb position on the seafront opposite Golden Sands Beach. The hotel benefits from fantastic views across the Exe Estuary towards Dawlish Warren. The Hotel is set in a Crescent of elegant houses - the first crescent of its kind to be built in Devon with every house facing the sea. Panoramic views across Lyme Bay and the estuary can be seen from all front facing rooms along with Drakes Bar, lounges and our relaxing gardens. The Regency entertainment suite and bar provide the perfect place to unwind. Exmouth is the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast stretching as far as Dorset and is renowned for its red cliffs and sand dunes.
