Was in Brighton on business and thought I would give this infamous hotel a try (infamous because of the IRA bombing of Margaret Thatcher in 1984). Great hotel with elegant furnishings and very pleasant bar…….perhaps a bit dark but there are sunrooms of the bar which have plenty of light. Room was large, very clean. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge. Great staff.....At £109 including breakfast it was a bargain, but that’s an off season price. The £26 to park your car for the night I expensive but that’s Brighton for you. I would strongly recommend this hotel, it’s excellent

Room Tip: only 5min walk from Brighton's "Lanes"

Stayed here for work conference. Bedrooms varied a lot in size and decor. I was happy with my room, nice size and large clean bathroom. Facilities in hotel were clean and presentable. Location of hotel was good for me, close to night life if you wanted it.

Only down side - my bedroom was too hot through the night, I didnt sleep very well at all, Opened window which unfortunately had no draft as overlooked a tiny courtyard area.

We visited The Grand in 2013 to celebrate 10 years married. We took my two sons and so booked a large room. A suite is top end pricewise but with a sea view and private balcony, the rooms are good value. Right on the seafront and a five minute stroll from Palace Pier or the famous Lanes so great location. Staff are first rate.
Do Brighton in old skool style - go to The Grand.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a room with a seaview - worth the extra to watch the sun go down sitting on your balcony with a glass of something chilled.

Stayed 2 nights at the Grand as a 40th birthday treat, have wanted to stay there for ages as we often visit Brighton for the day from London. We have stayed at many hotels in Brighton over the years including several on the sea front such as the Thistle.

We had booked a sea view double and were given am excellent room, our balcony had the famous 'Grand' sign on it! rather than waffle here are my good and bad points:

good:
- great atmosphere in the bar (really great bar tender, who has a twin who works at the thistle). we really enjoyed spending time in the bar/lounge area with a cocktail or a late night glass of wine, excellent complementary snacks keep you thirsty!.
- GB1, very nice experience of dinner at GB1, good food and excellent service
- the room and decor, excellent really felt spoilt!
- the hotel and its decor = magnificent as expected from such a famous building. god only knows what the maintenance must cost to keep it at this standard
- service, i had an issue at breakfast and it was dealt with very well. so i wont mention it ;)

bad:
- road noise. unfortunately you cant have plastic triple glazed windows in a classic listed building and there is a major road just outside. not much to be done about it really. in future i would request a higher floor room as it probably helps
- breakfast buffet. poor choice and cramped, not a patch on an american style breakfast buffet. was disappointed and next time will not bother with breakfast here as loads of choice in brighton if you want it
- no fridge in room. its a bit annoying that you cant keep chilled water etc. wouldnt cost much to do
-no air con. classic listed building so no air con. it didnt really bother us because it was November!

so all in all a great time was had and we will definitely be staying again. I really hope when De Vere sell the Grand that the great atmosphere doesnt change!

Room Tip: Higher rooms will have less room noise

My husband and I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel for 2 nights. From the moment we checked in (concierge parking) the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. We really enjoyed the hotel and thought the restaurant GB1 was absolutely superb. We had dinner in the restaurant on both evenings and we also entertained some family members for lunch on one of the days. All the meals that we had were really wonderful with fresh produce and great service. We chose a room with a sea view. The bed was divine - super comfy.

Room Tip: Definitely worth getting a room with a view of the sea.
