“Great Midweek Break.”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We just had a 1 night midweek break for our anniversary. We arrived Early and was given our room before normal check-in time which was great. we went to our room to find that there was in fact two types of the same king size bedrooms and we had been placed in a different one from what we booked online. after talking to a staff member the manager came to the room within 5 mins to show us to the room we booked online and changed us over without a fuss. the room was a great size modern and clean complementary tea Starbucks coffee hot chocolate and water in the room Nice Bathrobe and slippers also!
We had 2 spa Treatments booked and was very impressed from start to finish the Receptionist was very friendly and showed us around after changing into our spa robes we was shown to the relaxation room which was heaven! shortly after we was taken to our treatment rooms by our Massage Therapist we both booked a 50min hot stone massage which was lovely we then floated back to the relaxation room to chill and help ourselves to complementary tea coffee water juice or cakes! after returning to the hotel room after dinner we found the tv to have all the sky channels which my partner was very impressed with! the bed was very comfy and we had a great nights sleep.
The next morning we went down for breakfast was seated and taken over the menu or buffet options and told hotel guests was welcome to a complementary buffet with everything you would want at breakfast time on offer full English fruits cereals cakes and fresh juices. or a small menu which would be charged to our room. of course we went for the complementary breakfast which was great and you was welcome to go back up for something else.
the breakfast room was lovely over looking the sea, the staff in the whole hotel where so nice helpful and made you feel very welcome which for that reason and the great services they offered we will return again & again to the Grand Hotel.

Room Tip: We had the Chambre Unique Room

We came to Brighton for some rest and relaxation and booked the De Vere Grand, as we are regular visitors to other De Vere venues. As it was a bit of special occasion we upgraded to a sea view - well, you don't book a hotel on the sea front and not go for the sea view do you? We were given the most amazing room - 5 huge floor to ceiling windows, settee and armchairs, huge bed and huge bathroom with his and her basins,shower and bath, plus free wifi! It was beautifully decorated too.
The hotel is lovely inside and staff are really helpful. We parked the car in the NCP multi storey behind the hotel which was really handy, although the hotel does have a small area at the front where you can load and unload the luggage.
The GB1 seafood restaurant is lovely - great menu and high quality seafood, with wine that starts at £24 a bottle. Again staff here are very attentive and explain the menu if you ask.
Breakfast is the only downside - as it is in most buffet style breakfasts. As the hotel is very popular, there was a short wait - although on the Sunday juice and pastries were laid out in the lounge area if you felt peckish. Hot food was always topped up quickly and again staff were helpful and apologetic about the madness that was breakfast.
I loved staying here and would do it again - centrally located for all the important locations, with great views from the sea view windows, what more could you ask?

Room Tip: Go for a sea view!

The hotel is kept to very high standard. Our room was only a standard double, but it was very spacious with a great kingsize bed. The staff were fantastic, very friendly "going the extra mile" to make us feel very welcome. The Bar was excellent and the restaurant (CB1) was simple fantastic. Quality and variety of food were top notch. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place and looking forward to our next stay there.

Room Tip: Cant rate the pool or spa as we didn't use it, but they both looked great. Our room was 404 and...

I have stayed at a few hotels in Brighton including the Hell of Hilton. This is a great hotel. We went for the room with a Wooden bath tub in the room.! it was pricy but well worth it. Huge balcony, huge bed, huge shower. Nice bar and great staff. The best hotel in Brighton so far!
9/10

Room Tip: Spend more and go for the room with a wooden bath tub in the room

We recently stayed at the Grand Hotel, got a great deal for one of the front facing 'deluxe sea-view double rooms'....worth looking on De Vere website to see if there are any deals. It was a huge room with gorgeous furniture, 3 massive picture windows with a balcony, and lovely bathroom. The hotel has recently been refurbished (I stayed about 10 years ago and it was pretty tired looking), they have managed to retain the old charm but added lovely fabrics. The seafood restaurant inside the hotel is wonderful too.

Room Tip: Definitely get a sea-view room and ask for a balcony.

Stayed14/15 March. Booked sea view,all went well,wife,s birthday. Ate out first evening.
Breakfast, more a fight in a refugee camp, just not enough room, food on the floor, poor table service, dirty linen. Booked restaurant for the evening, poor service,not busy except for a private party in main area. Food quality very poor, whitebait cold and spiced too much. Ribeye steak, very fatty,again Luke warm,with a bottle of wine,(£29). Total bill in excess of £95.
Sunday breakfast, as described previously but even more manic.
Have been to this hotel 7 times in the past 12 months, always been first class. Something has happened !!!!!!!
Did we complain ? No the moment has gone,spoilt our weekend.
Thanks Grand Hotel Brighton, perhaps Grand should be erased from your name.
