Pets can stay too.
We travelled with our dogs. The staff made as big a fuss of them as they did of us! Lovely big room with luxurious bathroom suite. We will definitely return!

The Grand Hotel & Spa
Unpleasant stay - lots of problems
Overall a disappointing trip of 5 days starting with being allocated a room next to the hotels bottle skip. Then given a room amidst bedrooms that were being refurbished with doors off their hinges, workmen all aver the place and extension leads and cables strewn across the floor. Not a very safe environment for a wheelchair user like myself. Eventually after telling them I would just check out and go somewhere else I got a quieter room on the second floor. On our last afternoon we used the spa and went back to our room in wet swimsuits and robes. Unfortunately we couldn’t get in as the electronic key card wasn’t working. We went to reception and explained the issue on FOUR occasions, all whilst cold and wet. Overall it took 35 minutes of wandering up and down from our room to the reception before any member of staff was asked to accompany us to ensure we could get in. It turned out the lock mechanism was faulty and easily fixed but it should not have taken so many trips to reception in wet clothes in order to gain access to the room. I asked for some complimentary hot drinks to be sent to the room and we eventually received them after three further phone calls and half an hour had passed. When checking out I was also over charged £632.80 as I was charged for the accommodation that I had already paid via All in all a disastrous weekend and I seemed to spend a lot of my time resolving issues I shouldn’t have experienced at a five star hotel.
