The Grand Hotel
The Grand Hotel occupies a historically significant piece of land on Marine Parade on the Broadwater foreshore known as Deep Water Point.
The first hotel to open in Labrador was built here in 1881 as the terminus for the Cobb and Co. Coaches, however it was destroyed by fire and was soon replaced by the new landmark Grand Hotel. The new opulent American style hotel with its own jetty and stables flourished until it was burnt to the ground in 1975. The new Grand Hotel complex was opened on 10 December 2001 and boast two award winning restaurants, three bars, gaming rooms and three liquor stores.
The custom-made furniture and décor throughout, including the benches and stools, are galvanised marine grade stainless steel, which is needed to withstand the open seaside conditions and the wear and tear from the hotel’s exuberant patrons. Comfort has been ensured with durable Hamptons-style fabrics and textiles throughout.
You may choose to sit on the patio stools to sip your beverage with a view over the Broadwater. If you’re after a meal, you can choose one of the brightly themed restaurants on offer.
You may choose to dine in restaurant Three Sixty which is set in exquisite surroundings with breathtaking broadwater views (just as it’s name suggests). Three Sixty offers all-day dining with an extensive tapas menu, a generous à la carte menu and over 60 wines by the glass.
Alternatively, you might prefer your restaurant big, fresh and tasty! Kokonut Willies chefs will serve you up some prime ribs, mouth-watering steaks or ocean fresh seafood. Checkout their menu and specials board for what’s sizzling on the grill tonight!
If you’ve eaten or you prefer protection from the breezes that can pick up in the afternoons, you may choose to sit in the ornate blue-hued heavy timber main bar.
On a sunny afternoon the patio furniture on the broad back deck is the perfect place to relax and sip your beverage.
So bring your friends and family and come and get comfortable!
