What a beautiful building. So sad that it is as run down and tatty as it is. Originally our friends booked this for an overnight stay for us all but my partner and myself decided to book an extra night. We arrived Friday evening only to find that it was not possible to park, so

Do they do fried eggs at breakfast in anyone of the two resturants?
Yes we were at the Harbour View Restaurant whilst staying at The Grand Hotel, they offer fried and scrambled eggs. I’m not sure about the premium breakfast area as we didn’t eat in there but I’d guess if the standard breakfast area offered fried eggs then the premium will do also. If there isn’t something on the buffet you want, then ask a waiter/waitress as they can usually sort something with the kitchen like they did when I wanted veggie sausages.

Are dogs allowed?If so where are they allowed to go?
The hotel is dog friendly. There were as many dogs as there were humans. They’re allowed everywhere except the dining area.

Hi, we stay there a fair few times a year and even chose to hold our wedding here. The builing is amazing and you get a real sense of grandure and warmth. The staff have always been accomodating and friendly and we have never had an issue. If it tends to be bright modern and clinical type accomodation you usually go for then this wouldn't be the place for you. My advise would be to give it ago and forget what people say, it does have a few maintenance probs as it is very old and big. Just keep in mind how much you pay and the fantastic location, a sea view is a must. The balcony is fab for the view and a pic and the drinks are and bar snacks are fab x
