Storyline

At the end of World War I, the Bannerman family re-opens the Grand Hotel after a lengthy closure and a costly re-furbishing. The hotel has been in the family for a long time and John Bannerman and his wife Sarah desperately want to make a go of it. Their son Stephen has returned from the wars without any physical harm but still suffers from the mental anguish of seeing so many of his comrades-in-arms falling on the battlefield. When they learn that their accountant has squandered what little money they had left, they must turn to John's brother Marcus, a successful businessman who has eschewed any interest in the hotel over the years but now seems ready to plunge into the business with both feet. He also has an interest in Sarah. For the most part, the staff take pride in their work and are lead by the Hall Porter, Jacob Collins, who lost his son in the war and by Kate Morris one of the chamber maids who, by force of her own personality, is bound to make an impression on anyone who ...

Misnomer
22 February 2012 | by (Auckland,New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The Grand,it isn't. This series is a sort of,television "monument to sleaze". There are simply no likable characters and some are so evil an average guest at the Grand would have to think twice or thrice before daring to leave their room! If you are into,suicide,murder,wicked ways and weird weird surrogacy, plus heaps of infidelity,"The Grand" will appeal. Set in post WWI Manchester,it is the tale of the decline and fall of a family of erstwhile successful hoteliers,the Bannermans. Downstairs,the Dickensian staff,with a corporate IQ of 40,are getting restless-and into trouble. Upstairs,self interest prevails. The naval gazing Bannermans pursue as many hurtful and self-destructive lines of behaviour their idle minds can conjure up. My advice,stay at the Midland!
