Came for a night to celebrate my partners birthday. Have been coming to The Grand for years but this was our first return since 2020 and had heard that the hotel had been taken over and refurbished. Check in and room was lovely, no complaints. As it was my partners birthday that night, had dinner and cocktails out locally and thought it would be nice to finish with a nightcap at midnight to toast in the new year. The barman who I can only describe as abrupt and rude, told us in no uncertain terms that the bar was not serving any longer as there was not enough customers ( note there were about 4 or 5 couples all sat having drinks around the bar still) and therefore they were closing early. We let him know that we were guests of the hotel and just wanted one drink which could be billed to the room in case they had tilled up, to which they answer was "there are other places in the area that are still open!" We then went to the check-in desk and asked if there was anything they could do, to which the answer was room service would serve us in our room and it would be cheaper! Cheaper was the price for 3 bottles of Peroni beer plus room delivery plus tax which amounted to the grand total shy of £30!!!!! Obviously this put a real damper on the whole evening and our stay. We left feeling like, unfortunately we would not be coming back to stay at The Grand again on any future visits to Brighton. We both work for companies where customer service is paramount and rudeness is not accept

Staff were excellent, breakfast great and public room a bit dark but grand and beautifully decorated. My issue was room 402. It might be the cheaper rooms but it was such a terrible outlook the lower window was glazed over which made the room dark. The decor was dark and heavy and you couldn’t open the shutters/window in the bathroom. Lighting not good for make up and no magnifying glass. Crisp cotton bedding/towels all good and coffee machine but room did not look like the picture. All too gloomy

Impressive and historic sea front hotel. Maybe not quite as grand as in its heyday but still a very high standard of comfort and service
