... diving board that you realise how cold the water below you might turn out to be. I am excited about what these thirty-five days will bring, but I am also quite nervous. I'm about to be immersed in, and exposed to, many different facets of the world's third-largest corporate travel company, BCD Travel.
I'll be an associate in the "Fast Track Leadership Programme," a whirlwind (but thorough) work experience placement that will take me to Latin America, to India, to ...
... available everywhere, either by the mug or by the bowl. Lobster is big too. You can get Lobster Macaroni Cheese, there are two McDonalds that offer Lobster rolls during August and Dunkin Donuts even trialled a lobster flavoured cream in their doughnuts last year which was not continued as it was not popular - wonder why? Our first stop was at Hampton Beach, a huge white sand beach that was packed full of people despite the fact that there was a lot of wind (tail end of ...
... for lunch, since it was a place I frequented as a young child. Lunch was at Barnacle Billy's in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. We were able to have a nice corner table overlooking the boats and under the awnings, as it continued to drizzle and rain. Four lobster rolls, 2 tuna rolls and a few drafts hit the spot and showed the kids a real New England tradition for lunch. Leaving Ogunquit, there was ...
... from the norm of 65 mph because of a heat restriction in New Hampshire, needless to say we arrived late in Saco. Coming back from Boston we decided on another easy meal so, since the train had wifi, we checked out pizza joints in the area. Saco Pizza is just down the road on 163 Main Street from the train station (take a left if you are leaving the station and you will find it on the right side). The pizza is good (3.5/5) and the service is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gorges Grant Hotel Ogunquit
Perfection - should be rated Six Stars!
This is our third stay at this beatuful hotel. We went up for Thanksgiving weekend. I don't think we have stayed in a cleaner hotel. Everything aspect is perfect. The lobby is breathtaking. The Christmas Decorations are now up, the fireplace is going, cookies and hot cider are served in the afternoon and the staff are the most cordial, warm, accomodating you could find anywhere. We are very seasoned travelers and wish they had this type of hotel in more locations. When you have been a repeat guest at a hotel and it is always consistent, that is what keeps guests returning and singing it's praises!
Rudeness with a smile....
My folks are from Kennebunkport, so I travel up there and to Ogunquit about five times a year and stay in area hotels. I was a little dumbfounded to find so many superb reviews on this hotel......I can't believe we were staying at the same place! This place was on par with every other motel, including their own Milestone, which is cheaper and better worth the money.
I received a wheelchair room with one window looking right into the indoor pool- and believe me, when the drapes were not drawn encasing us in drab darkness, those enjoying the pool enjoyed looking in at US! The walls were unbelievably paper-thin, which normally doesn't bother me, but it was a bit much with the vacuum roraing outside the door at 8 am and the voices sounding as though they were inside our room. The Formica furnishings were dropped right off from a 1980s Sieman's showroom. The smell in the air was slightly sickly-sweet, like urine. The front desk host was rude when a situation arose involving a mix-up with Expedia, but did it with a sing-song, passive-aggressive voice and demeanor. When we arrived (late-checkin), we had to call security twice to come to let us in. The bathtub was nearly too small to fit an average-sized woman's body!
Overall, drab and dull, and NOT worth the money we paid for the room. For thrifty travellers, their other properties were better- you pay for a motel-style place, you get it. I expected more when I paid a hotel price.
What a great hotel! Premium room was huge and wonderfully decorated.
Bed and pillows were the best! Staff friendly and very helpful. Only bad thing....they didn't have availability for another night!
Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Gorgeous Gorges Grant
Loved Ogunquit town and beaches, loved the south Maine coastline but really loved Gorges Grant Hotel - great rooms, lovely friendly service (nothing too much trouble) and inexpensive as well.
Will go back in a flash - highly recommended
This is a beautiful hotel. My husband and I were looking for a place to stay for several days this 2005 summer. Because I am so fussy, we decided to take a ride to Maine one beautiful weekend in February. We asked to see all three rooms, standard, premium and the suite. All were immaculate and tastefully decorated. I was impressed just walking into the lobby actually. We stayed in the suite, and quickly booked for summer. I am so looking forward to going back in the summer. They are completely remodeling their restaurant, Raspberri's. We saw the construction and it will be as beautiful as the rest of the hotel. I am so glad we found Gorges Grant Hotel. I think we'll be visiting there for many years to come also.
My wife and I travel on leisure trips quite often. We've stayed at most hotels in Ogunquit, but we usually wind up coming back to the Gorges Grant. It's hard to beat perfection.
We love this place
Over the years we have stayed at Gorges Grant on many occasions. AAA discount is given & breakfast is fantastic. The rooms are large, clean & comfortable. A good value.
Beautiful Place to Stay
Gorges Grants is a delightful place to stay! Great location, beautfiul grounds, very clean...lovely dining room and lobby...a place to relax and enjoy!
We keep coming back...
Every year we come back to Gorges Grant, since 2000, this is an exceptional hotel and a great deal. Be sure to have breakfast here. Friendly staff, great location...a perfect vacation spot !!!
My husband and I have stayed at the Gorges Grant numerous times as well as family and friends. The rooms are clean and the staff is fantastic. On our last visit our car battery died and they went out of their way to help us. The only draw back is the restaurant is only open for breakfast, but the multitude of great restaurants in the area minimizes the issue. I would recommend the Gorges Grant without hesitation!
