Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was so impressed by the Grand! The Hotel is indeed very grand, and an effort has been made to keep it decorated in a manner that fits its high-ceilinged large rooms and Victorian history. But it also has all the amenities you'd want, is super-clean, convenient, relaxed and friendly. The staff were welcoming. My room up on the 3rd floor had a fantastic view over the beach and across the North Sea. It was also large, with a seat in the window as well as plenty of space in the main part of the room itself. Talking to a colleague, I realized that some rooms have more modern bathrooms than others, but everything worked perfectly. The breakfast really set you up for the day - a full cooked breakfast, plus an excellent buffet, and, again, friendly and efficient staff. All of this for, when we booked, £79. Such a good price!

We had a 2 night break in lovely Tynemouth, a most interesting and beautifully maintained holiday resort. The Grand Hotel is the place to stay, right on the seafront and overlooking the stunning Longsands Beach.. Reception was friendly and helpful. Our room on the third floor had recently been refurbished to a high standard. with pleasing decor, comfortable beds and a spotless, well equipped bathroom. We had paid extra for sea view and could sit in a comfortable chair looking down on the beach and along to Cullercoats. Breakfast was freshly cooked with fresh fruit salad etc. We had 2 meals in the bar, which were very tasty and good value. The room rate was a bit pricey but overall it was well worth it and we left feeling we had enjoyed a great short break.

The Grand hotel is situated on the sea front in a beautiful location .
You are literally a few minutes from the beach and the sea .
The Building is as big and imposing as the name suggests, it is a grand piece of architecture .The hotel steps and main entrance are great place to take photos and are often used for wedding photos.
The staff are warm and friendly and will help with most enquiries and information happily.
The rooms are comfortable and spacious and offer an excellent nights sleep with top quality bedding and especially good pillows obviously some thought has gone into the choice of these and this really has paid off.
We didn't experience any noise from other guests even though there was a wedding party staying on the Saturday evening and enjoyed a good nights sleep.
The bathroom was of a good size and had both shower and bath we were able to open our room windows and this allowed a nice flow of cooler sea air.
Our room did not have a mini bar or any refrigeration but we did have a kettle with a selection of Fine teas, coffee and nice quality biscuits.
The reception is immediately in front of you as you walk up the stairs and the lift on the right of reception. We parked across the road opposite the hotel which reception said was ok ,there is other parking in front of the hotel and a parking area around the back but i couldn't find it .
The breakfast was ok choice of fresh fruit, pastries ,cereals ,yoghurt. And/or a full English breakfast .Reception will ask what time slot you would like for breakfast this allows the staff to ensure there is enough capacity.
The hotel has a bar on the ground floor at the corner of the hotel ,however i think this closed at 10.00pm ,the staff are pleasant and the beer ok. I think you can order bar meals here also.
Tynemouth shops, restaurants and bars are only a 12-15 minute walk away and are good for fish and chips (however the chip shops close at 8.00-8.30pm. There is also a small convenience supermarket there with a cash point .
In summary our visit was a really relaxing touch of luxury and worth every penny.

Stayed 4 nights end July and had lovely time very comfortable rooms beautiful views of Longsands hygiene excellent from reception self serve electronic temperature. Breakfast staff very attentive. Out of hotel to left you travel to Cullercoats Whitley Bay St Mary’s Island right and few minutes to lovely Tynemouth with Monks Priory to Land of Green Ginger and Weekend markets in Metro Station lots good eating places. Metro will take you all over 20 minutes to City Centre can travel in either direction though taxi trip quick too. Lots surfing along coast and just off main road opposite Surf Cafe before Sealife Centre crazy golf, big maze and play areas near small lake easy to miss if not aware.

Second trip here
The hotel is in a fab location and has loads of old school charm .
Staff this time we found to be a bit terse and cold and homourless. Not much of a welcome or greeting when you arrived back after being out . Except Stacy on reception who was great .
The hotel was apparently very full but not much atmosphere in the public areas. Asked receptionist for a drink in the the unmanned bar and was made to feel like rather a nuisance .
Breakfast good but very limited choice due to covid which I get .... but Really no fruit ? No cereal ?? No jam ???
We had a double side view room which was small and not very cosy but for the price i think it was fair enough .
My teenage children had a classic twin on the second floor which was much more pleasant and not much more money .
Our room had a very odd bathroom with a glass door . Absolutely no privacy and really made me feel uncomfortable and not want to be in the room . I cannot imagine why this has been designed like this ! Shower was really good though . Really hot and powerful. Basic average toiletries but again for the price they were ok. Mirror had been fitted so impossible to us the shaver socket to charge toothbrush as too close to shower screen . Why ??? I mentioned the bathroom door to reception twice they were not interested in the feedback and one receptionist said she hadn’t been in the rooms and didn’t know what I meant . Guys you really need to sort the bathroom glass doors !! This really spoiled my trip I want just mentioning a tiny thing .
My usual bugbear of wall mounted tv with trailing wires and other small detail which for no added cost could be sorted and make the room much more pleasant .
The stairs and landings have been redecorated and are pleasant .
The room wasn’t ready when we arrived despite the booking confirmation saying they guaranteed to be ready at 3 it wasn’t ready till 3:30 which was annoying and no apology.
Asked to pay entire bill up front before rooms even ready which was a bit grabbing though I guess they must have had issues with non payers to be like this .
All in all a pleasant stay but I didn’t feel very welcome or valued . We will give it another go as we love tynemouth and It wasn’t all bad and pretty good value .

Visited over night mid week, the hotel is very clean and decorated to a high standard, rooms are as good as the reception bar and restaurant, food was great afternoon sandwiches and breakfast was good fresh and tasty couldn’t fault our stay as staff were very helpful too. Would definitely re-visit. Very close to Tynemouth centre parking was ideal and free. Good location for walking.

We booked in to The Brasserie for afternoon tea for 40 people as part of our wedding celebrations. The staff were great, they set the tables with favours and placecards which was above and beyond, the food and drinks were outstanding and our sea view deluxe room was beautiful. Most of our guests also stayed at the hotel after our evening reception at Crusoes, and I haven't heard a negative word from anyone. My husband and I stayed a second night and used the Drawing room for cocktails, ordered champagne from room service and used our jacuzzi, all of which was just perfect. ❤️ The lovely staff around the hotel all asked how we enjoyed our special day too which was really nice of them. Couldn't fault a thing and look forward to returning for our anniversary. 🙂

After a christening in Durham we decided to visit Tynemouth and chose The Grand Hotel for a one night stay. The hotel is located straight across from Longsands beach and faces the North Sea. I decided to upgrade to a sea view and it was certainly worth the extra ten pounds.. The hotel is well appointed with lovely original features and the spiral central staircase adds to the air of grandeur. The weather was atrocious so we decided to eat in the restaurant and enjoyed a lovely meal. A full English breakfast next morning put the finishing touches to a first class stay. Great hotel, great value and lovely staff, we will be returning in summer.

Had new years day dinner today at £39 per head for 3 course meal. We were so excited to be having lunch here as we love Sunday lunch from the Grand and we had had a fab one in November this year. However, what we had today was very disappointing. Tempura prawn starter was actually deep fried breaded prawns that resembled second rate scampi and was dry as sticks. The main course of monkfish was a joke... the actual monkfish on the plate was so small i thought the chef had forgotten to put on the plate. The piece of monkfish was smaller than a swan match box and the pasta it came with hadnt seen a splash of white wine or cream! We had the sticky toffee glory which was basically a couple cubes of pudding with a scoop of ice cream and a squirt of fresh cream. Totally not worth the money. Pains me to say this as we have had many delicious meals here in the past but this was very mediocre and a bit of a rip off. Sorry Grand Hotel but can and have done better.

I would agree with the other reviewer. There are some parking bays at the front and left side of the hotel or you can park in the road at the right side of the hotel and get a free parking permit from Reception. Wheelchair users would have to access the hotel through the pub and the lifts go to all floors except the very top floor, so make sure you state when you book that you need an accessible room.
