Reviews - The Grand Brighton

4AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
97-99 Kings Road , Brighton, BN1 2FW
The Grand Brighton is located just under an hour from London and 25 minutes from Gatwick Airport. Brighton Train Station is less than one mile and is easily accessible from M25 and M23 motorways.

With its sumptuous Italian Renaissance style, The Grand Brighton is a masterpiece of Victorian splendour and has been lovingly restored following a multi-million pound investment including refurbishment of all lounge areas, cocktail bar, restaurant and guest bedrooms. The hotel stands proud on Brighton's seafront, boasts panoramic sea views and is just a stones throw away from the famous Lanes, Brighton Pier, The Royal Pavilion, theatres and nightlife.

The 201 newly decorated bedrooms have been furnished with fabrics and interiors to a very high standard featuring luxury Egyptian linens and bathrobes, free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV’s with satellite and some Sky channels.

For pure indulgence and total relaxation guests can head down to The Sp@ The Grand, the elegant new Day Spa. The Grand’s new spa is impressive at first sight. Plus, if you want to work out as well as relax there is a modern air-conditioned gym on the first floor. The luxurious Spa at The Grand, run by our own experienced and professionally trained therapists, provides the perfect relaxation retreat, offering treatments in calm and tranquil surroundings.

One of Brighton's most glamorous culinary hotspots, GB1 Seafood Restaurant and Bar offers the south coast's finest and freshest fish and seafood caught daily. GB1 is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, offering an a la carte menu, specials from the blackboard and affordable set lunch menus. Whether you want a quick bite and a glass of bubbles from the restaurant's stunning champagne and oyster bar, a quiet dinner or celebratory feast, GB1 offers the perfect dining experience for all. Quality meat dishes from the grill, classic British favourites and vegetarian dishes are available.

If it is something less formal you're after try the Victoria Lounge and Terrace with its tantalising array of classic British dishes and light lunchtime favourites. This is where you can indulge in our famous Grand Afternoon Tea, whilst enjoying uninterrupted views of the seafront, mere yards away. Traditional Sussex Cream Teas are available from Monday to Friday: 3pm-6pm and on Saturday and Sunday there are two sittings at 2.30pm and 4.30pm It is essential to pre-book afternoon tea prior to arrival.

Boasting old world elegance, The Victoria Bar offers an extensive cocktail, wine and drinks list including the classics you'd expect and a few that might surprise. You can sit back and check your e-mail using the Wi-Fi and mull over the big decisions, like will it be the Mojito, a refreshing glass of Pimms or a glass of Champagne.

Fantastic Hotel and Great Staff
Check-in was efficient, hassle free and although we arrived earlier than the check-in time there was no drama. The room was very well equipped, clean and spacious. Breakfast was relaxed and there was a fantastic selection of food on offer. This hotel is well appointed and the staff make this hotel what it is - a fantastic place to enjoy Brighton and the surrounding area.

Refubed Room but nees to be maintained
We stayed one night in order to go to the Theatre. Check-in was a breeze- very efficient and staright to our room, a budget room but recently refurbished. The bedroom area was very comfortable with quality fittings, the bathroom likewise but there was a window alongside the shower/bath. This had no shower curtain - it appeared it should, as a result water lays on the window sill and had started to rot the wooden frame, there was black surface mould on the frosted window. The rain shower was about 50% blocked and the hand held fitment could not be used as the switch lever from tap to shower was missing. I was concerned at the safety of the glass alongside the shower- potentially fatal if its not toughened and you slipped! It is this attention to detail that lets a quality Hotel lose its top reviews.
The lifts were grubby- it was 4pm when we got there but the mirrors, carpet and brass all looked like they needed a good clean. Bar was excellent and the Breakfast choice was exceptional. We had booked on a cheap deal and it was good value for money- I would have been disappointed with the points raised had I paid full price.

Not so Grand
Small room not ready on time. Not serviced on the 2nd day. Windows blacked out and no air com. Bathroom very basic. We had a bigger room at Travelodge. Pay for Spa? Disabled parking at the top of a hill. Otherwise £35.00 each night.

Grand Stay in Brighton
Grand Hotel is everything you want from a hotel. Rooms are exceptional staff very friendly and very helpful. Would stay there again without hesitation. Only small downside there is a £5 tray service to your room which to be is not needed but overall very good.

Poor value for money.
The room was half price and bills as refurbished however it was tiny, and not finished to a high standard. The plug in the bath didn't fit and according to staff couldn't be fixed so a relaxing bath after the long journey there was impossible. Overall disappointing and definitely not worth the money even at half price.
