The best hotel in town

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 11, 2009

Certainly the best hotel - grand in name and in the old style. Very expensive, particularly if you want a room at the front overlooking the sea - well why would you bother to stay here if you looked out of the back?

Stay out of season, or any time that isn't a Friday or Saturday. For example, the rates on Sunday 13 September were exactly half those on Saturday 12 September. Book well in advance for best deals.

Unique Quality: Classic frontage.

RATHER GRAND!

by written on June 20, 2008

The Grand Hotel has - along with the Metropole - been one of Brighton's leading hotels for the many years. It plays host to Prime Ministerial stays during political party conferences and was the scene of a famous IRA bomb attack in 1984 which removed a goodly amount of the hotel's frontage and nearly took Mrs Thatcher with it. Because of it's iced cake appearance it's always had a slight edge on it's rival but recent reports tend to suggest that this particular Grande Dame isn't looking as sprightly as she used to be. People have certainly had excellent stays but some others report a fall from grace and a slow decline from chic to ever so slightly shabby. Luxury is obviously still to be had here but perhaps it needs to try a tad harder in certain departments?

The main dining room is the King's Restaurant which serves both a la carte and fixed price menus. The current price (June 2008) of the latter being £23.50 for two courses and £29 for three. Traditional style dishes on offer include oxtail soup, beef and ale pie, and rhubarb and pear crumble and thick custard. The Victoria Bar and Lounge serves coffee, cream teas, sandwiches and in the evening becomes a cocktail serving piano bar.

After overdoing it at the restaurant you might wish to toddle - or waddle? - along to the hotel's own health Club with it's pool, saiuna, steamroom and array of treatments from facials to body massages. Then again, you could have another cream tea!

Unique Quality: The sea view couldn't be better...assuming your room has one!

Directions: From London and the M25, take the M23 to Brighton and then the A259 Seafront Road. The hotel has 70 parking spaces available to guests at £25 per 24 hours. Yes, they really do charge that much!

Plush as you like hotel on the seafront.

by written on February 16, 2008

I've not personally stayed in the grand, but friends have and say that it's excellent. I don't know too much about the cost either but trust my friends opinion and the fact that even from the outside it looks amazing. Central to virtually everything, the seafront, pier, shopping centre, Brighton centre arena etc. it's definately in a choice spot. For 5 star choice with 5 star service choose the grand, with only the Hilton next door looking anywhere near as good a choice for your money.

Unique Quality: The location is one of the best things about the grand. On Kings road, rite on the seafront, just down the road from the palace pier. Just a short walk from West street, which is home to many bars, clubs and other roads leading off it where restaurants and cafe's are found by the dozen. A little further is the theatre royal, royal pavillion and the pavillion gardens. A little further still and up into kemptown where there are cocktail bars and wine bars. Also not too far down the coast is Brighton marina, with a great choice of restaurants, bars, cinema, casino, bowlplex and designer clothes boutiques. Not forgetting the lanes, where you can literally find anything, from jewellery, to antiques, clothes, music stores, souvenirs etc. Another stand out feature is the old fashioned style to the building and the service you recieve.

Directions: Head along the seafront, when you see the biggest hotels near the Brighton centre arena you'll see the signs and name on the building. You can't miss it.
