My friend and I chose The Grosvenor out of curiosity having seen it on TV. It was just as you would imagine!
We had two rooms which were both rather tired with shabby decor and furnishings, in my bathroom (room 10) there were cracks in the wash basin and bath both of which had been fixed with an attractive smear of isopon moreover the bath flexed as I got in! That said, however, the bed linen and towels were spotlessly clean and I enjoyed a good night's sleep.
My friend's door did not lock, the window in room did not shut but I did have comprehensive instructions advising me how to operate the phone. There was no phone! My friend enjoyed the luxury of a telephone but had no instructions.
The bar and entertainment were great and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant even going so far as to make cheese and onion toasties at 2am.
The breakfast was disappointingly good....we had imagined tinned mushrooms and watery eggs but it was a tasty well cooked meal.
Would I stay there again? Not a chance even though at £99 for three nights it was pretty good value for money.
Over the 2am toasties we gained some information about what happens next but I'm not going to spoil it for you!
