Great location, lovely hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast, nice bars (with great cocktails) and fantastic seaside location. Good facilities, small gym, but sufficient equipment for a quick holiday workout!

The hotel was welcoming and the general experience was fantastic. The location was perfect! However, I believe the air conditioning unit was outside of our room, so it sounded like planes were taking off every few minutes.

We had a lovely time at The Grand and really appreciated the attention to detail in the decor and ambience. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and I would definitely recommend a sea view which have little balconies from which you can watch the world go by on the promenade.

Does the hotel have lifts?
yes they do , but when the hotel is busy , they can be very slow to reach all floors up to 5/10 minutes wait , we ended up using the stairs all the time , not bad going down , but going up 5 flights , a nightmare.

No they have not ... do not let them give you rooms 409 or 410 they are dia with poor furniture old tatty beds and the cleanliness of the bathroom was appalling . The website is very misleading indeed ! I paid £ 235 each room not cheap and I was expecting both rooms to have been refurbed they had not , avoid !!
