The bedrooms are nothing less than majestic in design, decor and facilities. It was and still is, a sanctuary from worldly pressures with music still playing a soothing role: time was when the BBC`s Palm Court Orchestra broadcast every Sunday evening from the Great Hall. Whilst age has added lustre to this great hotel, almost an institution now, the vast leisure club with spa, indoor pool, gym and array of beauty treatments has added immeasurably to the hotel`s youthful appeal. Conference organisers around the world will know The Grand by name, if not, by heart. A truly grand hotel in the finest tradition.
