We have just returned from a weekend away with Shearings Coaches to the Grand Hotel Exmouth. From the moment the enthusiastic Manager stepped on board the coach to advise us of the arrangements for our stay I could tell this was going to be one enjoyable break. I was certainly not wrong. We collected our key and found our seaview...

Full review. **Room 79** Twin beds which were so uncomfortable, and needed to be updated. The Kettle just carried on boiling and the handle was so hot you needed a sock to hold it. The View was rubbish.. a fan came on every 20 mins or so when had the window open. The room was clean but really needed updated....

Many thanks for writing a review of your stay with us.

For what I paid for a five-day break this was definitely a brilliant deal. I wasn't looking for 5 star service for my budget deal. The standard room we were in was just as expected and has all the necessities we needed. The breakfast was more than we anticipated - full of selection from fruit to hot full English breakfast....

This is truly a sea front hotel on an unusually quiet part of the Exmouth sea front so it is reasonably undisturbed by revellers and traffic. The best way to describe the hotel is "faded grandeur" as undoubtedly it was really grand a generation or more ago. It's OK, comfortably cosy in both our room and the bar and lounge....

I have no idea why this hotel gets some poor reviews, true there are minor niggles but overall it cannot be faulted. The hotel itself is in the process of being refurbished and I would hope a little ore attention given to disabled facilities. Be difficult to get a wheelchair up the front steps for a start and as there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bay Grand Hotel enjoys a superb position on the seafront opposite Golden Sands Beach. The hotel benefits from fantastic views across the Exe Estuary towards Dawlish Warren. The Hotel is set in a Crescent of elegant houses - the first crescent of its kind to be built in Devon with every house facing the sea. Panoramic views across Lyme Bay and the estuary can be seen from all front facing rooms along with Drakes Bar, lounges and our relaxing gardens. The Regency entertainment suite and bar provide the perfect place to unwind. Exmouth is the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast stretching as far as Dorset and is renowned for its red cliffs and sand dunes. An ideal resort to explore the rest of Devon, it also boasts an old fashioned promenade and stunning Georgian architecture. ... more   less
