A solo short break

I chose the grand for 2 reasons. they gave me a great price for my 3 day break and i knew it was very close to all the amenities. the hotel is steeped in history and i knew from reviews it was in need of some upgrading,but my room was small but perfectly adequate with a great sea view. the staff really make an effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. all in all i have no complaints about my stay at the grand
