Escape the every day at The Grand hotel. Opulently decorated, the hotel combines its smart Regency history with modern touches. You’ll find plush velvet armchairs in vibrant colours next to polished chrome furnishings and traditional wooden panelling. Settle into a sofa by the window in the Victoria Lounge Bar and look out onto the rolling sea while enjoying a craft cocktail or afternoon tea to start a weekend of indulgence.
Private dining can be arranged for between six and 20 guests in one of the four exclusive lounges. Enjoy a menu thoughtfully prepared by renowned chef Alan White. For a romantic meal, dine at the 2 AA rosette-awarded GB1 restaurant, where you can sample fresh catches at the seafood bar or tuck into suckling pig. After you’ve eaten, drop into the bar and try a fruity Columbus cocktail. There’s live music by local acts every Friday and Saturday.
The spacious guestrooms are a tranquil combination of old elegance and new comfort. Georgian furniture sits next to cosy furnishings for a homely feel. The colour palette is light and tranquil enhancing the abundant natural light that pours in through the large windows. After a day wandering the promenade, Egyptian cotton linen helps you unwind.
Centre your mind and body in the hotel’s dedicated spa by pampering yourself with a facial, body wrap or scrub, massage or beauty treatment – booking is essential. Then, let go of any tensions in the steam room, sauna or relaxation lounge. If you have energy to spare, you can test out the fully equipped gym.
