We have stayed at several Shearing's hotels on a self-drive basis and found them to be good value normally. I booked a two night stay at the Bay Grand as a birthday break. Let me start with the good stuff, food and restaurant staff fine, location right on sea front and close to town. Poor- £5 a night to park at another hotel 5 minutes walk away. Very poor - we were given Room 3 and after looking, asked to change. Very little natural light so light was on during day. No luck changing room and that night the noise from some machinery kept me awake most of the night. Complained to man on reception in the morning and asked for another room to be told "not possible" . We bought ear plugs for following night but no better. This room is very, very poor value. Not only dim but NO shower curtain, NO place to hang shower head in bathroom. Also only stingy bar of soap with no shampoo.
The state of this room and the attitude of the guy on reception ruined what could have been a pleasant experience. We have not been put off Shearing' hotels generally but will stick to Coast and Country in future and no longer consider Bay Hotels.
