We visited this hotel in May as they were hosting a Wedding Fair. The Grand occupies an imposing position high up on the cliffs as you begin to drive out of Swanage you turn into Burlington Road. There is a small car park but plenty of parking in the road.
As we entered the hotel there was a toastmaster in full regalia waiting to welcome visitors. Beyond the reception there was a bar and seating area, this leads on to a lovely conservatory with stunning views over the bay.
The hotel had been showcased for a wedding with flowers, wedding cakes, disco, tables dressed for the wedding breakfast, a marquee for the ceremony, make up artist, guitarist, saxophonist and much more.
The hotel has a calm and relaxing atmosphere, it has recently been redecorated and looks very nice. The staff were friendly and helpful.
There is a restaurant or if you prefer bar snacks are available.
We didn't stay so couldn't comment on the bedrooms.
On the ground floor there is a health club and spa.
Overall a very pleasant visit and an ideal venue for a wedding as the Grand offers the whole package under one roof.
