    All staff were very professional, yet helpful and friendly.As blue badge holders, we were given an allocated parking space. The food ,breakfast and dinner , was excellent, and the views across the bay made our enjoyment very special. We can highly recommend the Grand Hotel.

    A friendly place to stay,nothing earth shattering but clean good sized rooms and great service.Ideal for a base if your exploring the area with lots to do even in bad weather.The hotel could do with an up date menu and decorating but its clean.
