We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at Grand Hotel which is in a superb location a few minutes walk from Newcastle beach, coastal walks and cafes. High ceilings and classic hotel design give the hotel great character. The renovated rooms look great and comfortable.

I didn’t have a good experience unfortunately. The room is nice and big with a beautiful balcony and in an unbeatable location. However there is no reception so if you have any issues there is no one to speak to. The pub was closed while we were there. Our room had a horrendous smell, somewhere between damp mouldy carpet and a urinal. It was unbearable to be in. The aircon leaked onto the carpet. The bathroom has mould in the grout and hairs in the sink. The remote is stuck together with gaff and the furniture has had a lot of wear and tear. We tried to air out the room to address the smell but it didn’t help at all and our neighbours kept smoking on their balcony so that would waft in. We tried to request another room but it was 9:30pm and got no response. To their credit they didn’t charge us and we are very appreciative we didn’t have to put up a fight but I’m not sure I can say I recommend the experience and definitely nowhere near 4 stars.

We have stayed at this hotel about 6 times. Location is great and there is some old world pub charm but much more attention is needed to the fixtures and fittings. We stayed in room 17 this time. Avoid this room at all costs. There was some really annoying vibration sound coming from the roof above the manhole cover that sounded intermittently every minute all night long with the wind. No bulb in one bedside (come on guys replace the bulb). Lots of dust on switches, window sills and architraves. Carpet tears, paint defects and sad blistered jug and coffee tray. We think we will give it a miss next time but there is hope with new ownership. My advice to them is move fast to improve the experience.

Loved the balcony and the historic atmosphere. The pub food is of great quality and reasonably priced Staff were very helpful and obliging to accommodate for Covid. They even brought our delicious meals to our room.

Very central location close to the beach, cafes, restaurants and city attractions. A great friendy atmosphere where the food was tasty and the rooms were quite comfy. Old world charm positioned perfectly for a night out in the city. Five stars all round
