                It's great to see the Grand Hotel once again living up to its name. The redevelopment has undoubtedly been spectacular, and the attention to detail in the refurbishment of this Art Deco gem is impressive. The accommodation prices are also very reasonable.

                Unfortunately, the management is undertaking some rather stingy cost- cutting. The toilet paper is so thin you can see through it. If you want the ac to actually cool your room down to a tolerable temperature then you have to call reception and ask them to do it. And at breakfast you can have either a continental breakfast or a cooked breakfast, so if you want a cooked breakfast then you can't also have any cereal or jam, something one takes for granted even at a basic b&B.

                I enjoyed the location and friendliness of staff

                The spa was not open, the fitness room was a bit small

              • Single
                5.4

                The staff were friendly and the breakfast very good and clearly included in the price

                The double room was very small, with a small bed and a window which was fixed shut relying on air conditioning which I found clostaphobic and unpleasent. The Spa used on web image was closed on arrival at 7 pm and broken in the morning. The 4 star rating seemed a joke it was a budget Swansea 1 star at most with a fancy staircase and a good breakfast .

                The dinner was excellent

                The room was a little bit tired and the windows could not close probably

                when I told the reception staff of our problems - they were apologetic and very pleasant. they even took £10 off the bill. However I would have preferred everything to have been as it should have been in the first place.

                No car park - but NCP was near by. We did not think the hotel was worth 4 stars - the bar was very grubby, the carpet in the hotel room was dirty, the evening meal we had was overcooked. I requested disabled room for my father and I to be next door -these requests were not received or acted upon on arrival. The hairdryer in my room did not work and even when I asked for it to be repaired or replaced for the second night - it wasn't.

                I was unimpressed by the hotel but complaint being dealt with at present so feel it unfair to comment at this stage.

                10.0

                I felt safe in the hotel, the rooms had all I needed and were clean and comfortable.

                Well, the TV was dissapointing , the choice of channels was poor , for example there was no news channal available in my room, even though Sky news was listed in your guide. I would have opted for more choice channel wise rather than a DVD player .If you are restricted to the room in the evening, this would be a problem .

                Easy to park and find taxis.

                We had booked on the Internet and asked for a twin room, this turned out to be a double. The Manager kindly put up a z bed for us as a second bed, but I had rung in with enquiries beforehand and said my friend was disabled and the secodn bed filled the room making it difficult for her to move around. , I was not really happy that the room which was small over the kitchen fans and which were noisy and sometimes smelly. The window was not able to be opened. The room number was not shown on the signs so we spent a while searching for it. Was this a 'spare' room kept for Staff? I noticed the hotel booking form being amended when we booked in - but I could not see what changes were being made! The Manager argued that we had booked a double room

                It doesn't charge a credit card until a guest arrives. Variety of hot breakfast is good. Close location to the train station. Clean and spacious room. Friendly and helpful staff. Free wi-fi internet

                Condition of room and the air conditioner

                All fine , though like all hotel staff they should be aware that when a biker stays , the parking of the bike is crucial , and details should be sent prior to arrival of the exact location and safety of the parking. Perhaps this should be on an email . After 6 hours of difficult manuvering of a big bike , its a bit of a hassle to get stopped outside the hotelthen run in and ask for these details

              • Couple
                8.2

                Good and friendly service and good location.

                Room was clearly non-smoking, but still had a smell that some one had smoked inside.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                The Hotel was genrally excellent but the location for a tourist was poor and there is nothing you can do about this.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                closeness to Swansea station, stayed on a Thursday night and we weren't disturbed from any noise from outside at all - surprisingly quiet. On the doorstep for shops. Room and it's facilities were fine.

                Only one thing - the corridor outside our room, because of the fire doors being permanently closed, made the corridor musty and slightly unpleasant. We had to go to the Marriot to visit someone, and the firedoors there, were open with some sort of magnet device.

              • Family with children
                4.2

                Entrance bright and welcoming - to be fair arrived very late and left 1st thing so cant comment on the rest

                Previous occupants dirty towel left behind bathroom door. Overhead bedside lamp not working. Toilet roll quality cheap and nasty generally found in mass public conveniences, not supposedly 4* establishments. Bed hard, creaky, rates to about Travelodge standards, certainly not up to Premier Inn Standards. All complaints reported to Reception on leaving,
