We had a sea view which was very good.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant for dinner.

Bathroom was excellent

Public areas had been refurbished and looked good, in keeping with the period of the
hotel's construction

Went for a weekend break 22nd October with my Husband. It was not our first time to this hotel and will not be our last. The Hotel itself is lovely and the staff are all very accomodating.
We went on a special offer booked only 2 days before arrival.
The offer was bed and breakfast and dinner for £109.00 for 2 people which we thought was excellant value for money.
Lots to do great facilities at the hotel and also lovely part of the country.
I would recommend this hotel very highly.

Room Tip: All rooms we have stayed in are very good

As an ex-Torquinian it was lovely to visit the town and the relaxing experience of the Grand Hotel.As expected from its historic 'grandeur' a most pleasant weekend to be enjoyed and at a price within the normal budget paid at the multiple lodges freely available!

Room Tip: Sea-views,additional cost,but all rooms have good open views

My husband and I booked a two night stay for b&b. When we arrived and checked into our room, we were a little disappointed as it was quite small. a little shabby and overlooked the fire escape. Whilst my husband went to park the car, I asked at reception and was given a complementary upgrade and oh, what a difference this made to our stay. A lovely room, plenty of space, bright, clean and with a fabulous view of the sea.

Breakfast was great with lots of choice. The food was delicious and very hot. Served buffet style so you can help yourself.

All the staff we met throughout our stay were friendly and helpful.

The location is a little out of the town centre but it is not too far to walk which is what we did, several times.

I would definitely stay there again.

We have just returned from a weekend break at The Grand & I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone. The staff could not have been more friendly & helpful & the hotel is most comfortable, The indoor pool area was delightful, not a massive Gym it's true, but we didn't need that, but as everywhere else in the hotel everything was very clean. If you want modern style then this is not it, it is an older hotel but none the less comfortable for that. My enduring reminder is how nice all the staff were & if all the Richerdson hotels are like this I would not hesitate to visit the others.
I would suggest that Christmas spent in the Grand would most probably be a real treat.
If I return I would book a sea facing room, as the windows on our inland facing room actually looked onto nothing but wall, it did make for a very quiet stay however.
