First impressions were very good, reception & other public areas very nice. Check in not brilliant the guy was not particularly helpful or cheerful. Found we had a twin room, but wanted a double (not sure if this was my fault or the hotels) Went back to reception, saw a different chap (sorry I didn't get his name) who was very helpful & on hearing it was our wedding anniversary was able to move us to a double room with sea view. Room was spacious & spotlessly clean with lovely views but was a little tired in places. We thought the food was very ordinary for the price. Unable to use the outdoor pool as was closed, so used indoor pool which was good but changing areas need updating.
Overall we had a very enjoyable stay at The Grand.
