Never again. I think the only people in here had half price voucher deals! Even they werent happy. Others seemed to be on cheap package deals. Really battered around the edges this place, but clean and tidy. Old fashioned bathroom and ancient beds with blankets ????. little choice for dinner and it was awful anyway. Stay away b

We had a lovely long weekend staying in Grosvenor. It's outlook does put us off a little but the service and the quality makes the difference. I really like the receptionist called Megan.

We visited last year during the floods and so went back again to see the area with better weather. We were lucky this time as the sun shone the whole five days. The hotel is still very good value for money although we felt there wasn't as much choice at dinner time. The food however is good, except for the...
