Do not be fooled by the name of the hotel, as it is not grand at all. This enormous hotel with about 700 rooms is very shabby and run down. It has some beautiful features, such as the main staircase and some lovely views from the restaurant, but it is dirty and fairly neglected as it attempts to squeeze as many people in as possible. It resembled a holiday camp, with queues for dinner and breakfast. The food was ok and there was plenty of it but it was piled in huge tins reminiscent of school dinners. I was amused by the hand sanitisers everywhere and the welcome letter which assured me that the sheets were changed after every visit.
I didn't see the entertainment, as Bingo's not my game and an hour in the bleak bar sent us to our tiny room in the eaves.
There were lots of groups there who seemed to be having a good time, but it wasn't for us and we left after one night.
