May is a strange month in England. It can be warm, it can be cold, but overall you wouldn't class May as a Summer month...yet at the Grand, the heating in our suite was switched off as it is "Summer now Sir!"
The small asthmatic fan heater they sent up needed to be left on in each room with the door closed for the room to heat, then be moved...very 1950's holiday camp, not Grand Hotel.
The morning shower was not taken as the bathroom was distinctly chilly.
The valet parking has gone too..."it wasn't cost-effective"...strange how the SAME £25.00 parking charge applied...the NCP next door, by the way is half the price.
The food was still great though, and the staff lovely, just clearly the management letting the side down.
