After looking forward for weeks to my stay in the Grand I actually cried with disappointment ,The sea view room was tiny and stuffy could not reach the small top window to open it.
View was spoiled by dirty window. Could not believe they let people into breakfast still in pajamas, found this disgusting so left without any breakfast.No complaints about staff they were very nice but I realise now the hotel is all about profit, customers are low priority, I know profit is important but at what cost. Iwould never stay there again or recommend it to anyone. These may be petty complaints to you but when you have saved and looked forward to what was to be a special treat to stay in THE GRAND. I just cant explain the disappointment I felt. Bet you're sorry you asked me now. But thank you for the opportunity to do so.
Disappointing return to The Grand
We stayed at The Grand three years ago and enjoyed our stay then, but it was disappointing to see the changes that had happened since then.
The staff were excellent and very helpful but they were obviously stretched and struggling to keep up with the number of complaints they were getting. The hotel seems intent on cramming as many people in as possible and perhaps should think about the state of the rooms - we started in the basement in a room with no windows, next to the kitchens but were then moved on request to another room, just as small but at least it had a window. It is a wonderful building but for the money it was disappointing.
