Beautiful magical day
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
The Perfect Day
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 breeze.......my 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’
Our Wedding Day
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.
Wedding at The Grand Hotel
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 whole day was like something out of a dream
All the staff where so helpful and friendly
Wanna give a massive shout out to Josh the amazing barman /singer and the lovely blond hair girl behind the reception who was still there the morning after the wedding
The 3 course meal was amazing so much time and effort was put in to it by the chefs and you could tell
But most of all a huge huge massive thank you to Lauren Cooke the best wedding planner ever she couldn't do enough for us. Nothing was to big or to small she is a star !!!!
Wedding Vows Renewal
Lauren the wedding coordinator gave us no less than 100% and the ceremony and the weekend was absolutely fantastic.
I would highly recommend this hotel,the staff were so friendly and accommodating and once again whether it is your wedding or the renewal of your wedding vows get in contact with Lauren and she will make it very special for you.
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.
Our formal photos were taken in the gardens at the Grand, which overlook the entire bay. I’ve seen some previews, and the location is stunning. Inside there are also some fantastic locations for photos, such as the grand stair case in the lobby.
The Wedding Breakfast was the best meal I’ve had in my life. The chef was able to make 54 meals taste just like the one we had at our tasting session. All of our guests commented on how fantastic the food was. The honeymoon suite, was, without a doubt, the best hotel room I could ever have wished to stay in. Comprising of 2 bedrooms (one en suite), a lounge, and a fantastic bathroom. The beds were certainly comfy, and after a day of standing up, walking and dancing, this was certainly welcomed.
The Grand Hotel did a fantastic job looking after us on our special day, and the staff could not have been better. We not only have fantastic memories, but we also have friends for life at The Grand.
I would, without a shadow of a doubt, recommend The Grand Hotel for your special day.
