My wife and I stayed at the fabulous Grand Hotel as part of its romance-themed package. We were immediately impressed by the warm welcome given by the lady attending Reception who then showed us to our room. The room itself was absolutely exquisite, prepared to a faultless standard. It was spacious, clean, and had tremendous views across the beautiful Promenade and the sea. The layout and colour scheme of the room created a strong impression of style and class, which would later turn out to be uniform throughout the hotel.
Exquisite touches in the room included a bottle of Champagne on ice, Cokes and water in the mini fridge, and strawberries with chocolate and other dips brought up soon after arrival. There was also a Nespresso machine which delivered the best-tasting coffee ever enjoyed in a hotel room.
Meals were absolutely superb, enjoyed in the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel restaurant. Staff were attentive and polite at all times. Breakfast was equally as impressive, offering a Continental breakfast as well as a generous and very tasty serving of scrambled eggs and bacon. Before departing we spent time in the spotlessly clean leisure area, which includes a large pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and gymnasium.
With St Annes being my hometown I've always wanted to stay at the historic Grand Hotel. My wife treating me to a trip there for my birthday has finally made this happen and we will definitely be back. Whilst adopting contemporary flair the hotel has also retained many original features, thereby proudly integrating its long and rich heritage. The hotel dates back to the end of the Victorian era, and it's so good to see that it hasn't lost its 'soul' in recent times. The traditional and the contemporary successfully co-exist at the magnificent Grand Hotel.
My birthday stay at the hotel was superb from start to finish, and has left me with an exquisite memory of my special day. We look forward to many return visits to this amazing gem on the beautiful Fylde coast.
