We nearly never turned up because of some of the reviews. Glad we did, we had a fab time! Although the bed was a bit lumpy this was the only concern. Yes it's a seaside hotel and yes it's a bit outdated however, our room and bathroom were extremely clean. We were Served our meals very quickly and with a...

We stayed with a voucher which fortunately didn't include evening meal(s), breakfast wasn't very good, as said by previous contributers the hotel caters for coach parties first and foremost, we were on the outside of the main dining room with the rest of the people on similar deals. The hotel as a whole is an absolute maze, corridors everywhere and...

Nice hotel and our room was clean and comfortable, lovely friendly staff. The head waiter was very organised, dinner and breakfast very nice. Entertainment was included and the singer had a great voice. Overall our weekend stay at the Grosvenor was good value for money and I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Grosvenor, having purchased a voucher, for a "deal" to include an evening dinner. This hotel caters for coach parties so they seem to be catered for first. Room was ok nothing very special, could do with a new modern TV with a remote control and a new shower head would also be good. There are only...

We stayed at the Grosvenor, having purchased a voucher, for a "deal" to include an evening dinner. Before I continue, I will point out that we have had lots of these deals, almost all of which were a fantastic experience. Having never stayed here before, this hotel had an opportunity to impress us, but oh.......nothing could be further from the...

My wife and I spent two nights in this hotel last summer through a voucher promotion. The room was awful. I asked if we could be moved to another room we were told hotel was full and no other room was available. The room was so bad we decided to ask again only to be told the same. We decided...

As like a lot of reviewers i went to this hotel with a voucher. On arrival staff were very friendly and booking in was painless. Rooms certainly need updating as does the rest of the hotel. Food was excellent for what we paid and waiting staff were very efficient and pleasant. Evening entertainment was ok, having only catching the end...

Just like walking into an old people's home! Don't know what our upgrade paid for as the bed was on its last legs, the bedding was blankets! ! The mattress was covered in plastic! There was nothing nice about it.

Having booked this hotel (on a 2 night Wowcher deal) and then spoke over the telephone with a very efficient, pleasant, informative and polite young lady (Megan), I was very surprised to then read the adverse reviews on Tripadvisor, so it was with some trepidation that we arrived at the hotel. The available free parking is limited, but not horrendous...

We hard a 2 night Wowcher break early in May. The hotel staff were very welcoming and our room, when we eventually found it, was very clean and comfortable. The building is a little eccentric with corridors leading to more corridors and lots of doors. A bit confusing. The food was of a good standard if a little restricted in...
