Grand Victorian Hotel
Ranked #10 of 10 Hotels in Worthing
Reviewed 30 July 2011

Stayed here for one night with my partner, curtain hanging off, rubbish left in the room. noise all night someone had pulled doors off welsh dresser in hallway during the night.
Chinese meal spilt all down the stairs, breakfast disgusting swimming in grease, (Waiter, cook and bottle washer same person!) would have been better suited being a bouncer seemed very agitated when I asked could my fried egg be actually cooked (looked raw on my plate) but came back like rubber, did complain about the noise during the night and the state of the room, but didn't seem to take my complaint seriously apparently this is owned by the Chapman Group so I am putting my complaint in writing as I said NEVER AGAIN

The worst Hotel I have ever been to.... no toilet roll, no soap & the room stank of BO, we had to buy some soap & toilet roll & air freshener but we couldn't get rid of the foul sweaty stench, never any staff around, breakfast from 7 to 8am only & the service was a complete joke, DO NOT STAY HERE! You'd be better off paying a bit more & not being disappointed - would've given it zero out of 5 but one is the minimum... you have been warned.

A group of family and friends stayed at this hotel for a wedding it was awful I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone I would rather stay in a tent!

Not only was our room constantly full of blue bottle flies is was grubby and shabby the shower was not a power shower it was very feeble and the staff were rude and unhelpful.

I didn’t see anyone on reception and we stayed for two nights. Breakfast was between 8.00 and 9.00 but they weren’t prepared for guests nothing was ready not even the table laid and there were no menus, they had no orange juice, no tomatoes and if you were late you didn’t get anything.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL

The Grand Victorian Hotel has lots of lovely period features but it was absolutely filthy. We switched rooms as the toilet did not flush well and had not been cleaned. Wall paper was peeling off the walls and the surfaces and carpets were dirty. In the second room the toilet had been cleaned but again not the carpet or the surfaces. I dont mind tatty too much if a place is clean but even the fire extinguishers in the hall ways were coated with a thick layer of dust. It was very off putting as if areas that can be seen are not cared for what are the other areas of the hotel like ie the kitchen.
The breakfast was beyond a joke taking too long, drinks finished before the food arrived etc etc..
There is a nightclub/disco loxcated in the basement and sound from that vibrates through out the hotel, even to the top floor where we had our room.
Definately would not stay there again and would not recommend it

Room Tip: Sorry - no tip

We booked a stay at this hotel, before reading the reviews! After reading them we were a little worried.
On arrival, our worries went out of the window. A very friendly hotel, pub and resturant.
We had a good nights sleep, and the breakfast was lovely.
A laid back atmosphere, with a friendly landlord.
We would definatley go back.
Thanks to the staff.

Room Tip: Preferably ask for a room at the back of the hote.
