We have just returned from a scooter rally in Exmouth. The only downside to our weekend was our stay at The Grand, I can only comment on the room we had which was the worst room I have ever stayed in, I'm sure there must be some nice rooms in the hotel but DO NOT stay in room 29! Being scooterists we travel all over to scooter rallies and don't mind within reason where we stay, on occasions we camp out or stay in b & b's depending on the location so I don't mind roughing it from time to time and can put up with most things but how anyone can justify £78 per night for this room is beyond me, it really was the worst place I have ever stayed in. The room was small which is fine but the windows were so small the room was permanently dark and dingy and was in need of drastic decoration. The bathroom was a decent size but again dark and dingy and no shower. The view from the tiny windows was also disgusting i.e. bird droppings everywhere and a bucket under the wastepipe which must have a leak. All this just a few feet under the windows made the room smell awful. The staff seemed pleasant and breakfast was fine too. Didn't have evening meals so cannot comment.
