The most amazing wedding venue.
I cannot rate this venue highly enough. We married at the Grim’s Dyke Hotel in Harrow Weald in September this year, and we can honestly say the whole experience and service we received was absolutely faultless.Sent on 07/11/2018
We had the Grand Duke package and also booked around 30-40 rooms and all our guests were absolutely smitten by the venue, surroundings, superb staff and also the food that was served! We went for a taster evening before we chose the menu, which was complimentary ( we received the cost of this off the final price) and we were really delighted with it, however, on the day and when the hotel were serving 80 odd guests, they simply excellent themselves with fillet of beef that melted in the mouth! The hotel welcomed our youngest guests too as we wanted to have the children in our family present.
We stayed for the day before the wedding and a for few days afterwards. The staff could not do enough for us during the entire time, nothing was too much trouble for them and we were treated like royalty. Staff were efficient yet unobtrusive and I would particularly like to thank Richard, Angela, Katie and Claire who were simply excellent. The serving and bar staff were faultless too. All the rooms were perfect; spotless and beautifully decorated. Our package included a string quartet, flowers, photography and so much more.
It was the day of our dreams and we will continue to stay there just because it is such a lovely experience. If anyone is thinking of using the Grim’s Dyke for their wedding, then I would urge you to at least pay them a visit; I think you will be very pleased that you did.

Excellent wedding venue
We held our wedding here earlier this month, and it was a great success. The Grim's Dyke team were very helpful and well-organised. We went for the summer special package, and all of the hotel's vendors were very helpful and delivered perfectly on the day. It's a great location, easy to reach from London but still private and special. All of our guests were very complimentary. The choux swans for dessert were a particularly big hit!Sent on 07/11/2018

Recommend it to anyone
Hi Claire and DemelzaSent on 23/02/2018
Thanks for hosting our wedding on Saturday. We had a lovely time and so did our guests. We have all been talking about the joyous time that we had. Both of you and all the staff at GD have been very helpful and accomodating. In particular, everyone at GD has been those hard to define but very important things: warm, friendly, relaxed, capable and willing. We couldn't have asked for more from a venue and would recommend it to anyone.
