10/10 Exceptional

Majestic back in its day!
Le Grande VR Hamilton is a beautiful old Hotel that back in the day would've been majestic! It's old, needs refurbishment but still lovely. Room 103 is where Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Phillip stayed in 1953. The staff allowed me to have a tour of the room and I took pics see below. I could just imagine what it would've been like. I've stayed at VR three times in the last 6 months and will continue to return.

2/10 Poor

Was worst hotel ever stayed in . Toilet was terrible, everything not very clean, floors where all uneven, couldn’t shut window told reception they looked at it they didn’t get anyone to fix it so had to listen to noise all night, heat pump wouldn’t warm room up. Friends stayed in another room they also said it was terrible. Would never stay there again, and will also warn people not to stay there. Needs closed down.

8/10 Very good

Quick visit
The room was excellent value for money although the noise in the bathroom when you turned the light on was annoying but after about 20 minutes it stopped; the heatpump was also noisy at the higher temperatures but quietened down when you lowered it.

Location was good. Shower didn't work and lack of kitchen means staying longer than 2 nights is expensive
