Grand Atlantic Hotel
Stay with us at a hotel that harks back to the glory days of the traditional British seaside resort in the beautiful and imposing turreted Grand Atlantic Hotel.
The hotel is located in the heart of Weston-super-Mare, just off Marine Parade, with spectacular views over the sea. The Grand Pier is just a five minute walk away along the pretty streets, lined with cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Weston-super-Mare train station is just a 10 minute walk away and from there you can get a direct connection to Bristol in just half an hour. Or explore the majesty of the Mendip Hills which begin just outside of town, the pretty town of Cheddar can be reached by a half hour drive or hour long bus ride.
In the hotel you can enjoy delicious meals from a varied menu all prepared by our wonderful chefs and served in our modern restaurant. The hotel also has multiple room options including superb superior and standard plus rooms which offer even more comfort and space as well as spectacular views out over the water.
Jaunt to Street
We visit the quaint Somerset village of Street, famed as the place where Clark’s Shoes were founded in 1825 and still the home of the brand. The town is on the Samaritans Way and there are a number of fascinating walks possible through the surrounding countryside.
Trip to Cardiff
We visit the capital city of Wales, Cardiff. The city has changed a lot in modern times and emerged from a post-industrial lull to become one of the nation’s top tourist attractions. Cardiff Bay, which was the focus for much regeneration during the 1990s, is now seen as one of the leading shopping districts in the country. For something a little older, give Cardiff Castle a try, the current castle is built on a Roman fort which dates back almost 2,000 years.
