Review of Grand Golf Hotel, Tirrenia, near Pisa

Good – great value at £49 sterling for double room with breakfast, close to Pisa airport, swimming pool and private beach, spacious bedroom and bathroom.

Bad – not really up to 4 star standard could do with revamping.

Rating out of 10 – 8


I selected the Grand Golf Hotel because of its proximity to Pisa airport as we were flying into Pisa in the early evening and didn’t want a long drive in the hire car after the flight. I found the hotel for £49 with gta hotels using the HotelsCombined price comparison site.

It took around 30 minutes to drive to the hotel from the airport. The hotel is a quiet location, near pine woods around a 10 minute walk from the town centre. Our bedroom was very spacious with a large bathroom. The fittings in the room were quite old fashioned but perfectly serviceable. Our balcony was tiny but there was a sea view. The breakfast was adequate. The swimming pool was attractive but be warned you can only swim there wearing a bathing cap which costs 4 euros at reception.

We walked to the hotel’s private beach in the morning which took around 5 minutes. There were only a few fishermen around. It’s free for guests to enter but you have to pay for sun beds and parasols but there was no-one around collecting money when we were there. There are changing facilities, showers and a cafe.

I think that the hotel is ideal for a stopover if you have an early or late flight in or out of Pisa. It would also be ideal for a relaxing couple of days by the seaside.
