Dream wedding
From the moment we viewed The Grand Hotel, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the very beginning, the events team were incredible and accommodated every wish and suggestion we made. Both Melissa and Stella were fantastic with the planning and were always very responsive to emails and happy to arrange meetings with us. Stella ensured everything came together perfectly in the run up by speaking to all our suppliers and answering any last minute questions that arose, even meeting with us the day before. On the day itself, Megan made everything run smoothly so we didn’t have to worry about a thing and could fully enjoy every moment. The food for both our wedding breakfast and the evening reception was fantastic. The chef put together a custom made menu for the evening according to our wishes and the guests loved it. The wedding breakfast tasting was a wonderful experience and the chef even came out to discuss the menu with us. The suite we stayed in
was beautiful and the staff on reception, concierge and the spa were fantastic throughout.

Thank you for bringing our dream wedding to reality! We will definitely be returning to celebrate our anniversary.

Perfect wedding day
The service of the hotel was amazing. They did everything in their power to ensure us and our guests were always happy. Even when there were mistakes they handled them in the most professional way and went above and beyond to put them right. Billie-Jo was amazing and worked hard to ensure everything went as perfectly as possible.

Fantastic wedding day
We were looked after superbly and although we were only a small party we were made to feel very special. I can’t fault the day and you even supplied the weather.

Fantastic wedding day at The Grand Hotel
We had a fantastic wedding day at The Grand Hotel. We were made to feel very special by everyone in the hotel. We cannot thank Melissa, Stella and Megan enough for looking after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble and the ladies honoured all of our requests and treated our wedding day (and lead up to it) with high priority. We feel lucky to have chosen a venue who is considerate of their guests, and who does not treat their venue as a wedding conveyor belt. Thank you for making our wedding day so amazing!

Luxury wedding venue
We arranged a very simple wedding, just room hire and afternoon tea in the lounge afterwards with only us and our two witnesses. The two staff allocated to us couldn’t have been nicer or any more attentive. Delighted with our low key wedding in the surroundings of the beautiful hotel, it kept the wedding meaningful but with a bit of luxury!
