“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

I frequently travel to Vizag on business; my favourite Hotel is Grand Bay. The employees are polite, courteous and friendly. I enjoy the breakfast in The Oceanic Pavilion and dinner in Dhakshin.

Grand Bay is Home away from Home. Rooms are spacious and very much comfortable

Room Tip: Pool and lawn facing rooms in second floor

Good property, a little old but very spacious rooms and very comfortable bed. The most amazing thing about this property which makes it different from other good hotels in the area is their staff...

Amazingly warm staff - ready to go out of their way to make your day wonderful...

Food spread in breakfast and buffet is good in one of their main restaurants... however, I did not enjoy the food in their south Indian restaurant Dakshin. Gym is old and isn't equipped with lot of equipment.

All in all great place to live

It is a beautiful hotel and the warmth of the staff makes you feel instantly at home. The rooms are nicely done and ocean view soothing.
The food is consistently good. Especially like the Chinese and South Indian

Room Tip: higher floors have a better view of the ocean

Rooms with a view of the bay of Bengal, this hotel is really great! Rooms are spacious, comfortable, soft beds, lovely pillows and some really good bath amenities. The breakfast spread is sumptuous and delicious and the service is very prompt and warm. Do not miss out the Executive Lounge on the top floor and relax with a good whisky at the end of your day.

Room Tip: East rooms will give you great views of the sea

Dear Mr. Shankar,

Thank you very much for taking out valuable time to post your comments and speaking to our Front Office Manager regarding your experiences.

We have noted the reported discomfort, We would request you to treat this as an isolated incident, and not an example of our normal service standards.

We request you to give us an opportunity of welcoming you back at WelcomHotel Grand Bay and to make the necessary amends.

This was my second visit to Vaizag, my first visit was as student (along with my college mates) .... and this visit was with my family (my wife and nine years old daughter). Our initial plan was to check-in at Park. However, when our train tickets were not getting confirmed we thought of dropping our idea of vacation at Vaizag. Fortunately our tickets got confirmed, and at last moment I called up the Hotel on the day of journey.......

From the very first interaction the courteous hotel staff created a positive "moment of truth" with me. They booked the room without even taking my Credit Card Gurantee, as I was unable to log-in to net at that point of time. They had arranged for my Station pick-up, and check-in process was real fast.... it was complete even before we could complete our Welcome drink....

They had offered me WelcomBreak Holidays.. where I had to pay for 2 nights and avail the third night free of cost.... Breakfast was part of the deal.

There was flat 20% off on all services... However I had a better deal here as well.. Since I have ITC Culinary Plus membership... I enjoyed roughy 33.33% to 50% discount in F&B. Also redeemed some of my vouchers.

So I enjoyed real value for money.

Hotel rooms were spacious, and food was real good....

Room Tip: Ask for a Pool View Room...

My wife and three boys had a blast when we stayed in the hotel on vacation. It is a bit pricey for us but considering the fact that we were splurging the price was not really a factor.

Fortunately for us it was a lean period for the hotel and this meant that it was quite and my noisy boys were not of disturbances to the other guests.

Their facilities are amazing, but I think their best asset is there personnel. Very cordial, helpful warm and go out of the way to make your stay comfortable.

Restaurants: The Dakshin (serves south Indian cuisine) and The Residency (serves Oriental cuisine) were amazing. Food was great and the service was absolutely superb. Their buffet was pretty standard and was not too fancy. In my opinion for the price they charged they sure could do much better on the buffet spread. What they lack in spread they sure compensate for it in service by the staff.

Rooms: Quite spacious (specially since we stayed with three small boys). Their toilets were quite small but was well stocked with amenities. We got the sea facing room and sure did good for the view from the room

Location: This is about 5 mins walking distance from the Vizag beach. There is a small mall 2 mins from the hotel but all other amenities are not within walking distance

Swimming Pool: Well maintained and good. My boys had a blast.

Health Club: Very well stocked with equipment for cardio and weights. Very helpful staff

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for the sea facing room.
