Charming hotel, aging gracefully.
Posted Mar 19, 2017
Lovely 1 night stay at the Grand. We stayed during massive refurbishment to the outside, so covered in scaffolding (hence a good deal I guess) but didn't bother us really.
Such a lovely old hotel. It's aging quite a lot now and get the impression the decor is getting expensive to keep up with, but if you don't need the mod cons and super contemporary bathroom etc, it's lovely and has everything you need. Standard Room was clean, lovely comfy bed. Air con etc. But very basic. But ok.
Bar was very nice and restaurant very good.
What struck me most was the staff - really friendly, helpful and cheerful staff, in all areas. From doorman, bar staff and restaurant to reception and room cleaning staff.
Definitely recommend if you want a charming old hotel but don't need super contemporary surroundings.
