What has happened to the Grandfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Had the same experience with the "No Water" incident once, Thank god I missed it.
Going back in Augustfrom shelly-ann
We went back to reception at 5pm, told room would be another 45 mins. At this stage all we wanted was to get settled into our room, we sat at the reception and ten mins later we were called.
the room was lovely, very clean, overall we were happy with it. Had dinner in the restaurant that evening, very good indeed, I work in hospitality and I really could not complain about anything. The breakfast was suberb, the staff were pleasant. On our 2nd night we had bar food, which was even nicer than the restaurant and very reasonably priced. The only thing that was a small bit annoying was the fact that the waitress was perhaps abit over attentive, and kept coming over to the table every five mins or so and asking did we wnat anymore drink. I found this a small bit obtrustive, as I would ask if I did.
We have booked to return in August. Overall I would give this hotel a good 8 out of ten for customer care.
A Grand Experience!from jaimewvu
I don't have any idea why some of these reviewers are saying bad things about The Grand -- it isn't run down in the least. It was built in the 1830's, and if you aren't a fan of this type of place then stay in a cookie-cutter hotel. There are plenty of international chains just south of Malahide. We'll stick to The Grand. We can stay in a Hilton any time.
Avoid Room 125from jjessie2
Is the Grand advertising it as a 4 star? You will get a much bigger and more comfortable room in the Airport Hilton a few miles back towards town. I can't see how it can be acceptable to offer a room of this size. I guess in an old building they knocked up partition walls and fitted in as many rooms as they could.
Perhaps we were just unlucky, but at €165 (and that was a discounted wedding rate) I think a customer should get more than a pathetic sorry if they complain. Overall we had a great night though however on the Sunday the bar does not open until 12.30. I was told I could get service in the lobby - well by whom, nobody around to offer service.
So, If you end up with Room 125 in the Grand perhaps you should ask to see it before you agree to accept it. And no, we are not too fussy, my friend usually if very laid back!
What a Lovely experiencefrom DavidMcCartney
lovely hotelfrom benji55
Malahide a lovely little townfrom Maxine002
All in all we would return to Malahide again but not sure if we would bother going back to the Grand, maybe a little B&B or something. We went on a bed and breakfast basis and bought 2 meals in the hotel, (bar meal and carvery)not impressed! Better to go bed and breakfast and eat out in the many restaurants.
Also there is a lot of building work going on at the hotel and it is a bit of a trek to the swimming pool.
Hotel - Dire Foodfrom lit102
As I have said there is a huge extension going on at the minute, I just hope that bigger doesn't mean worse. And I hope they will improve the size of their bar it is struggling to cope at present.
However I will give the Grand the benefit of the doubt and visit again, i'll just make sure we book Cruzo's well in advance
Fantastic Weekend Break!from Sineaid
The Arena Pool was a great size and the Gym was also very good. The bedroom which was spotlessly clean was very spacious and very nicely decorated.
We will definitely be back!
Great Hotelfrom LJFNI
