“Warmer than Sussex!”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

Made it by train from Sussex which was under snow. Relieved to enter good sized clean bedroom with heater going as well as rads on (though not very hot). Bathroom chilly; water usually hot enough. Beds comfy . Staff all friendly and helpful and meals fine. Very smart reception, lounges and dining room. Enjoyed exploring the town, had ride on wheel in brilliant sunshine on the Sunday, after watching hyundrerds of Santas and Fairies race along beach for charity.

This hotel has two things in its favour.. Its warm & the staff are most helpful. The rooms are dingy& badly furnished. The sea view ,for which we had paid a supplement,was unviewable as the window was almost opaque due to perrished double glazing.
The food was poor... tiny portions of reheated GLOOP. After sending back two main courses one evening I just gave up. The dishwater coffee was about the same standard so no suprise there. Would i recommend it !Off hand cant think of anyone I dislike that much. Please please Shearings.. this is meant to be one of your top flight hotels !!

Visited again for the Carnival, hotel was near to capacity with coach tours and individual travellers. We had booked the same room as before a Superior room which cost extra ,but, was well worth the money. Large very well furnished,comfortable bed, very nice bathroom with good water supply and fittings.The room was cleaned daily and clean towels,etc good quality toiletries replenished every day.A credit to the housekeeping staff. The receptionist welcomed us and gave us information on the new inclusive deal (unexpected) free bar in the evening and a packed lunch on one day. When looking at this hotel it must be taken into account the very reasonable costs involved in staying.. The waiting staff and chef do a great job, the food was varied and nicely cooked, ( if required you can pay extra if you want 20 oz of meat as a mixed grill.)Many of our fellow guests disapproved of the lack of entertainment, just a singer on two nights of the four we stayed, this did not detract from our enjoyment as we prefer the quiet life and maybe get out of the hotel into town for the evenings. Only down side the bar staff appeared have problem with smiling and seemed to have a different attitude when compared with the other staff, its good value and we like it. We will be going back again next year.

I'm sure that in the summer months this hotel would have been ok.

We stayed here in March 2010 during a very cold, wet and windy spell. I have left my review until now in order to warn other travellers who may be spending time at this hotel during the winter months. Take plenty of warm clothing and also a portable heater if you can fit it into your luggage. The heating broke down on the second day of our stay and was still not fixed when we left four days later. There was no hot water either for the last two days.

This is not an unusual occurance at the Grand Atlantic. If you read back in the reviews you will see that the heating at this hotel has broken down before; more than once!

Good hotel, clean and tidy friendly staff, food good but small portions! entertainment non existant !!! might have been better if the pier was open but still rebuilding and road works all along the sea front, not much night life.
