We came for a 24 hour stay with some close friends and I am pleased to say that this was one of the most enjoyable stays I can remember. The Grand is not a budget hotel, and what you pay for is the highly attentive, yet not overwhelming presence of some truly lovely staff who were on hand to meet...

Spoilt by family and pampered by the Grand staff. An experience not to be missed. Afternoon Tea as you always dreamt it should be. Beautiful sandwiches, delicate quiches, delightful pastries, fresh scones with jam & clotted cream and fresh tea topped up a couple of times during our stay. We went for the champagne option (it was my 50th so...

We stayed here for two nights as a little weekend getaway by the seaside. Location-wise its on the seafront so stunning views however in hindsight we should researched the town a bit more. The town is tailored more towards... the elderly, very few bars or mainstream shops but if you're jus coming for a bit of R&R then it does...

My boyfriend took me here for afternoon tea for our anniversary and it was such a treat. Excellent service when we arrived and throughout. The setting was beautiful: high ceilings with chandeliers and oil paintings, a piano playing and a warm fire in the fireplace (which we sat right next to!) The food was amazing, the best quiche I have...

We took advantage of an Autumn Break package recently, making the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel. Whilst the staff are generally attentive and helpful and the food in the Garden Restaurant superb, a major renovation is required to bring the hotel into the C21st. When we check-in we were advised that we had been allocated a recently...

We stayed at The Grand for one night. We loved the hotel and found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. We ate in the lounge in the afternoon and we're pleased with the service. All members of staff acknowledged us as we walked through the hotel. Special mention to Amy and Simon for their welcome... natural hosts

Stayed at The Grand for a last-minute weekend away. We were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. The service was impeccable, the bedroom spacious and well appointed and dinner in Mirabelle was superb (restaurant manager Benjamin was particularly courteous and professional). There is a tangible sense of history to the place, and the location is perfect. The pool is on...

We stayed here last weekend for a 1 night Spa Break package – loved our stay in the hotel but spa needs refurbishment The Grand is a really beautiful hotel, a little bit dated, but that is part of its charm; it’s like you are stepping back in time when you enter. The staff are all attentive and provide an...

We booked lunch here last week so we could see my mother in law who lives in Eastbourne We chose from the daily menu. Soup was pretty tasteless. Sea bass for one of us. That was well cooked but not particularly tasty. Two chicken pies which seemed to be sitting on a helping of wallpaper paste. Extremely difficult to swallow...
