The best part was the beds/rooms were clean however the fridge in our room reeked of spilled alcohol. There were scuff marks on the wall from the furniture. The water in the shower didn't stay hot, it would flicker from cold to hot. The staff were friendly and polite when it came to breakfast down stairs. They were 1 chef dowm which caused a bit of a wait but the maitre'd discounted our meals. Overall, our stay at The Grand Hotel was fine, just afew little things to amend

This is a traditional old-NZ style provincial town hotel with decor and decorations like something from the1950s or 1960s; and a lot of fun because of that. The rooms are good and clean; the restaurant was standard fare but very good value for money and well worth eating in for on a chilly Saturday night. The hotel is very handy to the centre of town.

Room was dated, carpet needs a good clean, water pressure in shower was very week, the bathroom window in our room (108) needs readjusting as there was a gap letting in a very cold draught through the night and finally the bed was very uncomfortable.
