BEST WESTERN Grand Hotel
lovely hotel have stayed there several times, good location.
BEST WESTERN Grand Hotel
I didn't try no food so can't comment on it sorry but the hotel was lovely and so was the staff.
On arrival we didn't have the 2 rooms just 1 but the staff put us in a suite immediately so the problem was dealt with with no fuss.
Otherwise everything was fine
cheap and cheerful
Faded glory. Rooms refurbished well but shower pathetic. No bath in room. Continental breakfast great, wide choice of items. Disappointing cooked breakfast. Location ideal for centre and football ground. Consequently more prone to noise from late night revellers, especially Friday night (though, apparently, it was pay day!).
Altogether, I would recommend it.
Room clean and well furnished.
Staff polite and helpful. Excellent, well presented breakfast. We would recommend The Grand and would certainly stay again.
1st room was substandard, I spoke to reception and was swiftly upgraded.
Even in the new room it was a struggle to get a good shower. It literally took 20 mins of running the water to get a decent heat and when the heat was acceptable the pressure was non existent. Speaking to other guests this was the same story throughout the hotel.
Glad to get a late booking, but wouldn't choose to go there if there were other options
I got the room as a very late booking and was glad to get somewhere to bed down for the night.
But there were issues that left me a little irritated. Firstly, I think all hotels should provide free parking for residents and the Grand Hotel does. However, due to a function in the hotel I struggled to get a spot and it was very narrow, leaving exiting the car very difficult. The check-in was pleasantly straight forward, friendly and quick. The room was a little stark but looked quite clean. There was a layer of dust over the clock and telephone on the bedside table and I couldn't resist writing "dust" with my finger tip on the clock. My major issues were more fundamental though. Firstly, the room was noisy. The occupant of the room next door was talking on his phone and the sound carried through the walls loud enough for me to get to sympathise with Carol about her problematic children. The other problem was the lack of hot water in the basin. That is pretty poor. There was enough to have a warm shower (very low pressure) but none at all in the basin. I got there late in the evening and all these points are perfectly survivable for a single night, but don't make you want to rush back. I mentioned the cold water to the receptionist when I checked out. I wasn't asked if my stay had been OK but I thought I'd mention it any way.

Overall our stay was fine.
Just two critiques: The toilet really smelled extremely bad - there must be a problem with it not flushing properly and sewage building up. Also we had to get more milk because the one I our room had gone off.
