I love Brighton. I love its grunginess, its feistiness, its griminess, its intimacy and its anarchic sense of freedom.
I also love the Grand Hotel - it’s a mad combination of wedding-cake architecture and calm sophistication, all set in a brilliant city. My wife and I got married in the Grand 13 years ago, and we’ve been back several times, most recently yesterday.
The staff were helpful and warm, the room was large and elegantly decorated, the bar staff made great martinis, the car parking worked easily (this is a big problem in Brighton), and, most importantly, the room had a truly magnificent view over the piers and the sea.
Sure, there were a couple of glitches with room service (no answer on the phone and an over-early breakfast delivery), but, overall, we had a really great stay.
Fantastic hotel. Fantastic city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is a truly remarkable hotel. An iconic Victorian building, it stands centre stage on the vibrant Brighton seafront and is a local landmark. Magnificent, imposing and the epitome of luxury. This is The Grand, Brighton. Following a recent extensive refurbishment, The Grand experience is one you will never forget. It's in the splendour of the 123 step sweeping staircase, the exquisite textures in the bedrooms, the delectable cuisine in GB1 restaurant and the sumptuous surroundings of The Spa at The Grand. It's in the stunning seaviews and the warmth with which you are welcomed. It's in its innate sense of style. The magnificent Grand is a popular location for films and television shows. Coronation Street, Eastenders and Only Fools and Horses have all shot episodes in the hotel. For the complete Brighton experience, it has to be The Grand, Brighton. ... more less
