    Grand or Great?

    We landed just after 9 pm and we were greeted by the bar tender at the pub.Initially cold with his response but eventually was ok. We walked up the stairs and we opened our room. Mostly clean but the main light had cobwebs and the edging of the room could have done with a good vacuum. Paint peeling off the bathroom walls too. However, we went downstairs and had a good sing song on the kareoke. We returned and crashed out on one of the most comfortable beds we have ever had! The shower was awesome too. Good pressure. Returned the key with a pleasant farewell. Def get rid of those bloody pictures up the hall way.... Scared the hell out of me....especially the one with hair dropping on a chair! For a 2.5 stay this was what we paid for. Decor could do with some sprucing up.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Almost slumming it.

    I was under no illusions this was budget. Budget can be clean and comfortable but not in this case. Bird faeces on the bathroom light. Dust and cobwebs everywhere including over the shower. Very, very cold despite a small heater being available. Crackling sound coming from the bathroom power outlet. Only bars of soap available to wash with, no shampoo. Friendly lady checking me in who was polite and a friendly and polite cleaner in the morning. No free parking as advertised. Massive let down.

    THANK YOU TO THE CLEANER DIANE YOU NEED TO LEARN

    The receptionist was less than desirable.. Diane was her name.. Had it not been for the cleaner and the bar staff who made a better more lasting positive impression on me I would've rated a lot lower.. Message for Diane stop being ignorant hiding behind your desk also stop lying even after I told you I met the cleaner in the bar and she said she would be upstairs you were caught out in your lies.. My Aunty and I chose to stay at The Grand because of the history.. I looked at other places in Whangarei and kept coming back to The Grand.. Diane your Customer Services skills is crap I have other 4 letter words that describe it.. Take a page out of the cleaners book she was more than accommodating helpful caring knowledgeable than you will ever be.. Thanks Selina

    The Grand Hotel Whangarei

    It was good value for money. The hotel itself more than my expectations. The location is good, close to the Centre of town. The available amenities were quite good. One thing it lacks is on site laundry facilities.
