The Grand certainly is 'grand'. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived.

The food in Hudson's restaurant was superb...

The hotel is only 2 minutes walk from the railway station so a taxi is not required if arriving by train. It is only a short walk from many of the popular places to visit and is an ideal location for most things. This is a superb hotel and this was our second visit. It is quite expensive by Northern...
