This time it was a "rest and recuperation" break to also celebrate hubbies birthday and Fathers Day. I upgraded us to a Superior Sea View room and wow we were not disappointed. The view was sublime. The room was HUGE but... More

Stayed here on a 4 day break with Shearings and we were very happy with everything. On arrival our allocated room was small and had no view so we upgraded to a sea view room, which although still compact was worth the extra.

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
