From the start our experience with Amber and the team at The Grand Hotel was amazing. Very professional, organised and nothing was to much trouble.

Beautiful magical day

We got married at The Grand Hotel last year and we had the most magical day. The staff were fantastic and professional, the venue was everything we wanted and our wedding planner went above and beyond for us and couldn't have asked for anyone better, Amber was always quick to respond to any worries or questions we had she was always supportive throughout the planning and the day itself she was just fantastic in every way possible

A stunning venue and service

Right from our first meeting with Amber at The Grand Hotel we received top professional friendly service.
Amber has a fine eye for detail and perfection. She didn't forget any request and we booked it 2 years in advance! She was great with advice and very responsive to all of my questions.
Our day was amazing. We had the ceremony, reception and evening party there which was the best decision we made. We had the wedding service in the restaurant and reception in the main venue room. The building and the grounds are stunning and the food was delicious.
The following day they were happy to accommodate family members for breakfast who weren't staying at the hotel which ended the weekend so well.
I would highly recommend The Grand Hotel to any bride and groom. They will make it your special day with wonderful memories that last forever.

Just wonderful

The day was just as we had hoped, magical.
Amber took care of everything and without fail ensured we were both taken care of along with our guests.
Outside wedding that was disrupted by rain, but once again Amber didn’t miss a beat and in fact made the day even more special by moving the whole party inside.
If we could offer ten stars we would give twenty.
You would be foolish not to use the Grand Hotel!

Supported us with changing circumstances

We had planned a beautiful wedding in August & Amber went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we wanted & more, she considered every request and met with me on many occasions just to discuss details & go other key points. Unfortunately my father in law recieved a terminal cancer diagnosis in April & Amber went into action to assist us in rearranging everything, we got married on the 28th May 2023 outside on terrace. The sun shone & it was a beautiful day & everything went perfect thanks to Amber and her team.

Wedding Venue

Wedding venue
Attended a friends wedding on Saturday at the Grand Hotel as best man.

The only way I can describe this event was that it was truly excellent. The wedding planner really ensured a smooth seamless event.

The staff were attentive, caring and expert in steering proceedings.
The format was practiced and executed brilliantly.
The room was prepared differently for the wedding service, the meal and then the evening do, quickly, efficiently and each time looked fantastic.
Each course of the meal was outstanding.
The evening 'do' was pleasant, stress free and with our own bar and excellent staff again.
Followed by a comfortable room and quiet nights sleep with a leisurely breakfast.

Well done

We had our wedding at The Grand on April 15th and we couldn't have asked for a better venue to spend our special day.
We only wanted a small wedding (around 18 guests) and the staff were more than happy to cater to our needs. From our first initial meeting with the Wedding Executive Lauren, we instantly felt comfortable and throughout the process she gave us a lot of guidance and some ideas as to how we could create a memorable day. She was great at helping us to create a vision in our minds of what our day was going to be like.
When the day finally arrived Lauren executed it brilliantly with the help of her team. All of the staff were attentive and polite throughout the day, checking that everything was okay and asking if we needed anything which was lovely, great customer service!
The day was exactly how we pictured it to be and something that we will cherish forever and that is all down to Lauren and all the other staff members.

Perfect Wedding

We'd like to extend our thanks to all the staff at The Grand Hotel for giving us the most perfect wedding imaginable. Special thanks go to Lauren Cooke our wedding coordinator. Lauren was absolutely amazing throughout the whole planning process. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she made the planning of our wedding a breeze with a lot of fun along the way.

When it came to our big day Lauren made everything run so smoothly. We'd like to extend our thanks to the chef and the rest of the kitchen staff who provided us with some stunning food throughout. The canapes being the highlight- they were so tasty. All guest enjoyed the wedding breakfast meal and the evening food was delicious also. The late night snack went down a storm! Thank you for your efforts.

The bar staff were amazing.. Liam the bar manager worked very hard for us aswell as Leanne behind the bar in our evening room.

All staff members pulled together to ensure our day was so very special. Rob, who I think was a manager, was always around and offering his assistance throughout the day which I really appreciated.

Our dream wedding finished off with a lovely breakfast which we enjoyed together with all of our guests who stayed the night. The bridal suite was lovely and the Hotel had left us some gifts inside the suite also.

The evening was a success and had a great night of music thanks to Sam at Bespoke Disco.

The Perfect Day

On Saturday the 11th August 2018 myself and my new wife had our wedding at the Grand Hotel. Having had the service in Stoke Gabriel we returned to the Grand for our wedding breakfast and celebrations.
This was the culmination of 2 years of planning aided by the absolutely brilliant Lauren. From start to finish, through the planning, prior to and during the day we have been looked after and treated like the most important special clients.
The day itself at the Grand started with us returning from the church to a special welcome from all staff, their excellent customer service and attention to detail continued throughout the afternoon and evening and was impressive to watch.
The coordination of meals/turn around of rooms and organisation was amazing and so professional.
The Devonshire suite looked stunning, and was the perfect setting for the reception/speeches then evening celebrations.
We stayed in the luxurious honeymoon suite which just topped off our day.
Bravo to all concerned at the Grand Hotel, especially Lauren who Has made what can be a stressful day, a advise to those looking for a venue for their wedding is to choose the Grand. You will not be disappointed.
A magical day, where the staff will make sure it’s ‘all about you’
Many Thanks
