“Grand Union Hotel Dining Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Our compliments to the chef and to our wonderful dinner waitress Melonie. We ordered the rib steak and lamb both were delicious. When we entered the hotel is was so pretty and the dining room had crisp white table clothes with a candle, however we choose to eat outside because it was a pretty evening. We did not spend the night in the hotel, but it looked like a nice place to stay.

This is a wonderful hotel in an historic and lovely town. Comfortable rooms overlooking
the Missouri River. Free parking. Outstanding restaurant with great service. Nice
breakfast included. One of Montana's best hotels and historic towns.

A beautifully restored, modern hotel with great service. My husband and I were graciously welcomed by Dorothy, a delightful hostess and informative guide. Our room was perfectly set up, clean, and modern, with up-to-date fixtures and a nice-new-firm bed. Good view of the Missouri River. One minor flaw: internet service is creaky and keeps "timing out."

We had dinner reservations in the Restaurant and it was excellent. Homemade soup, crisp salad, outrageous whole wheat bread, and divine entrées. The wine list is extensive and has something good in every price range. My husband had duck and I had blue marlin - both were very delicious. Our server, Maraia, was flawless. Every detail of her service and Chef Nick's meal was outstanding. French-pressed coffee and sorbet for dessert were a perfect ending.

Why didn't I rate Grand Union "five balls"? Because the "deluxe" breakfast was far from deluxe. Very ordinary. In fact, I get better breakfast at Super 8 and Comfort Inn in Great Falls. After being told that a "wonderful breakfast" is included in the price, and after that divine dinner, the ordinary breakfast (eggs, potatoes, toast and butter - no jam - and four grapes and a slice of orange) was a big disappointment. I asked for some fresh fruit and the waiter did give me a cup of chopped cantaloupe. He ran out of regular coffee mid-breakfast, at about 8:30 AM, and had to make more.

Worth a visit and a return, and definitely worth dining in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

Spent one night before multi-day canoe trip on Missouri River. Beautiful, quiet, comfortable setting right on the river, with very good on-site restaurant. Only bummer was they have no pet-friendly rooms; our treasured family pooch had to sleep in the car. Elegantly restored property, right downtown on riverfront walkway featuring historical statues and installations describing the region's history. Great place to stay in an interesting, friendly town.

The Grand Union Hotel is a gorgeous location for a wedding and reception. The food was delicious, the hotel and patio were spectacular, and Dorothy and her staff made everything so easy! Everyone enjoyed the beautiful rooms, and breakfast in the morning was delightful! I would recommend the Grand Union for any special event!

Had a fabulous stay in Fort Benton! The town has done an amazing job with sharing it's history. Stayed three nights at the Grand Union Hotel and had such a great experience. The hotel was so full of character, so lovely. The staff were also so full of character and so lovely!! The restaurant was fabulous. We ate there three evenings and were never disappointed. Cannot wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: Stayed in master suite. Very nice size and great view.

This town and hotel were so incredibly different! I felt like we were transported back in time to another era. If you like history and want to get away from crowds, this place is for you! This should definitely be a destination for a day or two if you are planning a trip to Montana! Not only is there history right outside the door, it is close to a terrific Lewis and Clark Museum in Great Falls. You might also consider a Canoe trip down the river with Missouri River Outfitters.
