Im not one for doing many reviews but I felt I should write a quick little something after our wedding earlier this month. Right from the first meeting, Lauren looked after us ensuring all of our hopes and dreams came true, even down to getting the kitchen to make the grey stuff for us, simply put, nothing was too much trouble. Lauren, you simply are awesome at your job and we truly appreciate everything you did for us. Once the day arrived, ALL of the staff were so supportive, friendly and attentive to all of our guests needs. The food was lovely, the Devonshire room looked stunning and everyone has said what a lovely venue it was with an amazing group of staff. Your wedding day is always going to be a memorable day but the team at the grand helped to make our day magical and we cannot thank you all enough.

We had our wedding here this weekend 17/08/19 and everything was absolutely perfect. My family and friends travelled down from Manchester and everyone absolutely loved the hotel and the views, the kids loved the pool, the food was fantastic and Lauren the wedding planner was amazing! Ever since booking the wedding in June last year she’s gone above and beyond to make sure we were as relaxed as possible and ensure everything ran smoothly on the day, couldn’t have asked for more... The rest of the staff were brilliant also, so polite, friendly and welcoming... Thank you so much for making our day so special

We had our wedding reception here on Saturday 4th May 2019 and this has been the hardest review to write for all the right reasons, it’s been hard to know where to start. From the moment we walked into the grand over a year before our wedding there was such a beautiful atmosphere in the whole hotel but then when we met Lauren for the first time we just knew we had to have our wedding reception at The Grand Hotel. So after many meetings, planning & menu tasting our day quickly arrived! From the morning of the wedding Lauren and her team were on hand to help with all the last minute preparations and sending me on my way to get married, when we arrived back to the hotel as husband and wife all the staff were so efficient in welcoming the family and friends with drinks and canepes, they made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of and that it all ran as smooth as silk! The food was outstanding and we have had so many amazing comments on how well presented and tasty all the food throughout the day was! The bar staff worked nonstop and always had a smile on their faces! The staff throughout the day and night honestly could never do enough for us! The customer service we received from start to finish has been outstanding, passionate and caring! The hotel itself is beautiful! And set in such a stunning place right at the heart of the bay! Our wedding was amazing because of this hotel and the team that do the weddings! Lauren (please don’t kill me for the photo) you truly are the wedding queen! And truly are the most beautiful woman both inside and out! You made mine and my husbands day way more perfect than we could of ever imagined! You cared about everything, you brought the magic back into wedding planning and for that alone I will never be able to thank you enough! You deserve all the recognition and applause for our wedding because you made it full of such perfect memories! Thank you all so much for everything! We will be back soon! Mr & Mrs Gentile

Always be a special place to us
We had our wedding reception here at the beginning of the month and it was the best day ever. Lauren and the team at the hotel put together the most incredible day for us, we could not have asked for a better team to help us make this day happen. The food was outstanding, the DJ Mitch kept us dancing all night long, our room was beautiful and it continued on the next morning with our wonderful breakfast. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, thank you for everything you have done for us! We will continue to visit the hotel as it will always have a special place with us.

Attention to Detail was Outstanding

Amazing team cannot thank them enough for a great wedding day! Lauren is a star she was there for us through all our planning for literally anything and she made the day amazing she helped me hold it together in occasions I really needed to! Would recommend a wedding at the Grand Hotel to everybody!

Lauren made our dream a reality. Her attention to detail was outstanding and even now almost 1 year later its the most amazing memory in our lives. We met on the saddest day of our lives when my husband decided to set the date, unbeknown to us the date became available the day my Mum passed, Lauren was both sympathetic but also able to make us smile and look forward to an event which we hadn't envisaged. Lauren admitted after our wedding that she felt more pressure than normal to get this perfect - Lauren I am truly sorry Mum made her presence felt so strongly!!
