Very comfortable, with excellent staff ( particularly Kathryn & Susie) and good food. Internal decor and fabrics in need of some tlc. Taped music in the brasserie was very repetitive, so requires extra tapes with more variety.

Room Tip: Rooms have excellent seaviews

Well Rebecca it might be dated but you've obviously missed a trick , the staff work very hard here to make you very welcome as they did on our weekend stay at the end of April .

Very clean rooms very friendly efficient service and very good food in the Brasserie and in the main Hotel restaurant

Also the swimming pool jacuzzi and sauna were very clean as were the changing areas

My partner had a facial in the spa on Saturday the 28th and said it was the best that she had had

A beautiful , majestic Hotel which is dated and in need of a little TLC ,,we stayed in room 402 on the 27th of April

Run by a team of very friendly welcoming staff from the minute that we checked in

Our family bedroom with a sea view was very clean it had a fridge which was a "Brucie bonus"

The food and service from the Brasserie and the main dining hall were first class

To sum it up I don't care about dated I don't care about Little Things that needed repairing but what I do care about is a warm welcome ,cleanliness, and good food and good friendly service , beautiful surroundings, and scenery, which we found at this hotel

Well done and we will be back

The Grand Hotel is subject to an on going refurbishment programme and true to say we have work left to do. However, I am thrilled to read that our food and service lived up to expectations.

Stayed for one night, hotel staff friendly and helpful. This hotel is dated and needs a complete overhaul, I have stayed in much better hotels for a lot less money. The pool and shower area were unpleasant and dirty Sorry to say there is nothing Grand about this hotel
