We had a good two night stay at the Granville, staying here ahead of the Brighton Half Marathon. Our room (Beardsley) was a good size, quiet and had a big comfy bed. The bathroom was fine - both a shower and a bath, which was useful.
There was a sofa bed in the room, though we didn't use it. The mattress of it appeared to be a bit marked, but not an issue for us.
Breakfast was great - prompt service, good range of options (all included in the price). On the Friday night we ate in the bar downstairs - decent pub food and helpful staff.
On the baby front, the Granville worked out well. A travel cot was provided, and there was enough room for the cot to be put in a darkened corner of the room. The bathroom had a bath (crucial these days!) and a high chair was provided at breakfast times. The only slight downside was the design of the (very old) building meant that whilst the lift went to the 4th floor, there were then another 8-10 twisty stairs to the room, which is tricky whilst carrying a buggy. In their defence, the staff did (a) assist my wife when she arrived on her own with buggy and (b) suggest we might like to leave the buggy folded up behind reception to avoid having to carry it up and down the stairs.
The staff were excellent - they ensured breakfast was available early on the day of the run, and they allowed us a later check-out after the run, enabling us to shower off and change before getting on the train home.
I'd happily stay here again.
