The Grand has an unrivalled position on the South Coast, with stunning views over the award winning Coastal Park and the busy Channel shipping lanes, and even France on clear days. It was built in 1900 by Daniel Baker, a master of innovative design; he had already developed the use of cavity wall ties, and went one better with The Grand – curtain walling with waterproof cavity insulation and massive bay windows to make the most of the views and the sunniest location in England. He used a steel frame – one of the first – to give the large clear spans to the main reception rooms, and – said to be a world first – in‐filled it with reinforced concrete. And he used suspended ceilings for improved soundproofing. There is a perpetual programme of refurbishment to reinforce its aura of character and quality. Whether you are a guest or just a day visitor you can relax and enjoy one of the two restaurants and bars we have. The wonder of the Grand lends itself for Weddings, Celebrations and Conferences. With a passion for excellence hand in hand with great hospitality we offer you the very best for your money. Disabled Parking is available on the immediate curtilage, with Disabled Access via a shallow ramp at the side entrance into reception.
