Stayed in SP Grand for 2 days in Jan 2012. Ambience is good and must mention the welcome drink which was exotic.
Room was good but showers need some work done. Personally didnt face any major issue, however my parents room had problem with drainage and had to call the maintainence guys twice.
Food is strictly OK..dont try the crossaints and unfortuanately idli also

Following on from the small aside in the last entry, about the transvestite that unwantedly attempted to kiss me to obtain money, we saw another one after leaving ...
... past 'The Yorkshire are like Scottish (very good with their money) but the generosity is squeezed out of them!' Mark laughed! ... & still found it funny the next day! Chating to our friends this morning and this topic was about 'training the mind'.. So as mark wonders off to get a Tuktuk I spot a spindly spider bouncing along the ground. This is my moment to 'face my fears'. I crouch down knees on the floor to stare this thing out and it all seems to be going well. I ...

Yes on young kids its fine ( I ...
