“Excellent stay at The Grand”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the grand hotel. We booked a dinner and breakfast deal via secret escapes and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Colin the doorman greeted us on arrival and was very professional. Unfortunately there was no space in the hotel car park but Colin directed us to the NCP car park located just at the back of the hotel which is literally a 2 minute walk away.

The room was beautufully decorated and had the most amazing view of the beach. I would definitely Reccomend booking a sea view room.

We ate in the GB1 restaurant on both nights and was served by Jonathan. He was very attentive and provided us with excellent customer service.

The filet steak may have been one of the best I've have ever eaten which is funny it being a sea food restaurant.

Overall we had a brilliant stay and this hotel will definitely be our go to place in Brighton.

I have to say this is one of the best Hotels In Brighton! The hotel is modern and you should be guaranteed a relaxing night. The balcony views are by far the most spectacular of all the ones I've seen as it on looks the seafront and has a great view of everything. Next time we need a hotel in Brighton this is the one we will be coming to!

My partner and I stayed weekend from Friday 1st Aug 2 nights, must say everything was marvellous check in was great from Amanda and colleague very friendly, lovely room 503,we used the lounge for drinks all the staff there were fantastic, did not use the restaurant except for breakfast the food was lovely and again friendly staff, charming lounge guys I must add, must mention the guys on the main door also great service and very welcoming and finally Anna Jones a lovely lady.

Booked well in advance with a saver rate but a lovely hotel. Definitely worth the star rating, not a huge amount to say other than just being a very nice stay, big rooms, very nice breakfast and friendly staff, didn't use the bar but always seemed very nice with a piano playing etc.

The only gripe I had was the shower head had a bit of limescale buildup that I had to clean to get a decent shower and the view from my room wasn't great but aside from that was fantastic.

We stayed for three nights booking a deluxe sea view room, it's worth paying more for this style of room. The room was very spacious with a separate dressing room , a huge sofa and two comfy chairs. It had a fabulous view of the sea and had a balcony. It was hot when we stayed but the room was ok for sleeping with the fan provided. The bedding was changed daily and there were plenty of toiletries too. The bathroom was great with a deep bath and separate shower. We ate in the hotel restaurant one night and the food and service were excellent. Breakfasts on all three mornings were lovely, lots of fruit and healthy alternatives and a full English if wanted. I found the service by all staff from reception to the restaurant very good. I would definitely stay again at this hotel and fear this room has spoilt me for other hotel stays. Will I find another room as grand!

We went to attend a party in the Albert room.

The room was smaller than expected and did not have the greatest atmosphere, it was hot and stuffy.

The food that was laid out was good, but they need to make us more aware of allergen dishes - I can't eat nuts but the chicken was in a satay sauce - to which I didn't know until after one bite!!

Drinks were pricey, better off purchasing at the bar, that's when you eventually get served.

Stayed here with my husband and daughter whilst attending the University open day. Booked 2 classic rooms but found ours rather small (especially for the cost). Nicely furnished but the window wouldn't open and quite dark as it overlooked an ugly brick building. Daughters room was brighter with an outside window in the bathroom and was ok for 1 person. Reception offered us a larger room with a better outlook at extra cost. Definately worth booking one of the more expensive sea view rooms but could be noisy from the busy road. The beds were comfy and the room well equiped. Breakfast was fine, didn't try the restaurant for an evening meal. Car parking was extra. Good location close to restaurants and excellent shops. The staff were all polite and helpful. Would stay again but think the hotel is overpriced for the majority of its accommodation.
