We stayed at the Grand hotel as a last minute break.I must say that when we pulled up I was a little concerned but once we walked through the door I was pleasantly surprised.
We were checked in by a gentleman called Anthony who was brillant.Very professional & had a really nice way about him.
The bar is fab, so cosy & had a lovely buzz to it.All the staff who served us in the bar were very attentive & always checking if we needed anything.
The spa/fitness centre was lovely too, actually all the main areas were done to a very high standard which is why I can't understand the rooms. I realise it is a very old hotel & to completely refurb all the rooms would be very expensive & take alot of time but it really was like stepping back into the 80's.Saying that though the bed was comfortable if a little too small (I found the fact you had blankets & sheets rather than a duvet really odd) The shower was nice & hot & the towels lovely & fluffy so all in all I can't grumble too much but I would have given this a 5/5 if it wasn't for the rooms.
Would I come back again?.......yes definately!
