Have just returned from having a (special offer) Winter break at this hotel ... and I honestly cannot fault anything over the course of our stay. At the time of booking, we were the only guests in the hotel and were therefore offered the choice of any of the rooms. We chose a double room with a sea view and balcony (room 103) - absolutely stunning (ok, agreed, the ensuite bathroom was 'dated' but everything functioned perfectly).
The booking in procedure was the quickest I have ever experienced at any hotel, the staff were all wonderful and very pleasant at all times (baring in mind that our stay coincided with the harsh weather conditions of January 2010). Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and my partner and myself were made to feel totally relaxed at all times during our stay.
As everyone has previously said, the views from the various rooms (bedrooms, conservatory, restaurant etc) are absolutely stunning, to watch the (winter) sun come up and go down was just pure bliss and left you feeling at peace with the world.
The hotel was warm and cozy (our room was very warm and cozy - spot on) and the food is superb at breakfast and dinner. Bar snacks are available and my partner enjoyed some lovely Dorset baked ham and mustard sandwiches one mid afternoon in the conservatory, overlooking the bay.
Only been back home for half a day as I write this, but missing the hotel greatly already. Many thanks to all at The Grand - you were simply brilliant.
