We were celebrating 40 years of marriage at The Grand, and it lived up to its name in every way. We had 50 guests, and the feedback from all without exception was positive. The sit-down meal for our evening celebration was excellent, served in the majestic ballroom, chandeliers and all. The building itself is a marvellous example of Victorian architecture, which added to the grandness of the occasion.
The staff were exemplary, helpful, polite and attentive; the food, both the evening meal and breakfast the morning after, was delicious and perfectly cooked; the ambiance was top class.
We stayed overnight in the honeymoon suite (bit old for that, but never mind), a huge space with every convenience including a bathroom with shower and spa bath. Temperature comfortable, and a morning reveille of seagulls which some might complain about, but I personally find quite fun - after all, it's by the sea, so one must expect this. Though if you actually want a sea view you'll have to ask for a top floor room.
All in all a great place to stay; our top recommendation if you're heading Hartlepool way. less
