How to Get There
As it is The Grand you do look for faults and the decor is tatty in places. Rooms are a good size. Breakfast was very good. Service very good and all staff very polite. Not a lot of evening meal options if you don’t want a fancy meal. You can’t order bar food and a lot of room service food apart from sandwiches after 6pm. Pool is small and not good to share. Pillows were awful and we had two twin beds put together so dipped in the middle. 3/5 for us due to lack of food options and bad night sleep from pillows and bed. Came away wanting something more modern.
Booked an executive, seaview room for a three night break. The concierge who met us on arrival was extremely efficient and our bags were transported to our room. Check-in was carried out quickly and we were shown to our room which was well appointed and had a great view over the bay. All the staff in the hotel were friendly and professional. The hotel itself is of a very good quality with reference to it's historic past well in evidence. The hotel has a wonderful spa with up to date facilities. All in all, a very nice and relaxing stay. I have covered the two restaurants in separate reviews.
A short break to celebrate our Golden Wedding at our favourite hotel. As usual everything was perfect and the staff were very curtious. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the rest of the hotel. We especially enjoyed the afternoon tea in its beautiful surroundings.
The Hotel is good, staff are very friendly, but the Hotel is falling behind the times with certain aspects, mainly the very, very poor Wi-Fi coverage and the Dog policy is rather unfriendly to say the least...
I think It just needs to realise that whist the over 70's may love the "old style" If they want to attract/keep a younger clientele they may need to move into the 21st Century !
Lovely experience during our stay, expensive very good standard of rooms if you are prepared to pay the high rates.
Restaurant not so good for variety of food but plenty of other restaurants within walking distance or better if you have a car and can venture further
