Venue Service

By Christine and Carl Crisp, on 02 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Apr 2017

Myself and my Husband were married here on the 30th April 17, and we could not thank the Staff enough! From the beginning Helen and the team were on hand to answer all of our questions and on the Day itself Not only were they on Hand through every part of the day, but they were all so attentive to our Guests especially those with young children, one of our guest child banged there head of a glass table and the staff were there straight away with a first aider, making sure everything was fine, I couldn't not fault them in any way. We cannot thank them enough for making our day so perfect.

Excellent wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Katherine Murray, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Apr 2017

We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day perfect! Starting from the planning stage you guided us through every bit making sure we hadn’t forgotten anything. We felt very relaxed leading up to the big day and that continued into the day too. The whole day was absolutely perfect in every way! When I arrived at the hotel Tim greeted me directly from the car and made sure I was calm. Every single one of your colleagues were great, you all made sure that everything was done to our timings and that we didn’t feel rushed at all! I never thought in my dreams that I would have been as relaxed all day as I was! All of our guests commented on how utterly fantastic you all made the day. I am sure we will be talking about our wedding for many years to come. Thank you all so very much,

Smooth nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Jenny and Callum Hayes, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2016

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the whole team at the Grand Hotel. From the initial planning stages to the actual wedding day everything ran smoothly nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing and the organisation on the day meant that all my guests were well looked after and after years of planning I was able to sit back and enjoy!!!

Cant thank enough
Venue Service

By Danielle & Sean Montgomery, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016

As for feedback, where do I start? Everything was total perfection, right from when we first booked the venue. We had originally booked it for February 2017 but decided we'd like to bring it forward and as luck would have it 5th November 2016 was available, and the hotel were more than happy for us to change the date The wedding planner (Helen I think?) was amazing, she answered all of our questions and really put us at ease, assuring us that all we'd have to do on the day was enjoy ourselves and that everything would be taken care of. Even the companies we booked (musicians, flowers and entertainment) had all worked with the Grand before, meaning we had very little to worry about in terms of getting set up On the day the staff were absolutely amazing - taking care of the set up, the deliveries and of course the guests. The toastmaster was fantastic, all of guests commented on how smoothly everything ran and how friendly he was, they all want him at their wedding! He was so lovely in the lead up to the ceremony, it was just what I needed to calm my nerves All of our guests commented on how brilliant the staff were, how beautiful the venue is and how good the food was (there was nothing lft by the end of the night!), and the staff on the evening were great, making sure everything ran to time and that we both knew where we needed to be and when I really can't thank you enough for the most perfect day, it could not have gone any better and it was really down to the wedding team who saw to our every need, thank you so much!

Truly Beautiful
Venue Service

By Lindsay Craney, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2016

A few comments for you about our wedding:- Our wedding day was perfect! The grand is a truly beautiful place, and the beachfront setting makes it even more spectacular! The excellent service of the staff, the delicious wedding breakfast and the all important attention to detail, meant our day was just as perfect as we always imagined it would be. A special thank you to you all Lindsay and Jamie

By Kerry & Stephen Brown, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Oct 2016

We'd like to thank everyone involved at the hotel. Our day couldn't have been more perfect. From the minute I arrived to the time we left. Everything went without a hitch. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. The Team there made our day the most perfect ever. Thank you.

Truly Amazing
Venue Service

By Rachel Shiel, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2016

We had our wedding at The Grand Hotel in June 2016 and we had a truly amazing day. Right from viewing the venue and up to the wedding all the staff were so helpful and made us feel we didn't have to worry one bit. On the day of the wedding the staff were straight away informing us of exactly what was going to happen and the toast master was fabulous! The chefs really outdid themselves with the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet it was delicious and we had a lot of compliments. We couldn't have picked a better wedding venue thank you so much to The Grand Hotel! Mr & Mrs Shiel

Knew where we were to tie the knot.
Venue Service

By Joanne Scott, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Mar 2016

When Chris proposed we didn't think twice about where we were to tie the knot. Having been guests at a fair few weddings at the Grand Hotel beforehand, we had always experienced lovely days with a warm and friendly atmosphere, and for our own wedding they didn't disappoint - we were (and still are) 100% satisfied with the choice we made. Anyone who has ever been to the Grand Hotel will tell you the facilities speak for themselves, but it was the staff who really helped make our day the way we hoped it would be. From our Wedding Co-ordinator, Louise, who was extremely professional, friendly and as excited as we were; to our Master of Ceremonies, James, who faced a number of challenges with professionalism and good humour; and all of the other members of staff who helped us throughout the day, we couldn't have asked for any more. We would highly recommend The Grand Hotel Tynemouth as your chosen venue for your big day.

Everything taken care of for you
Venue Service

By Allison, on 01 Sep 2006

Got married at the Grand in July 06. Have to say that some of the staff did seem a bit flakey in the run up to the wedding but on the day - we couldn''t have asked for more. The location of the Grand is superb as the sea is right on your doorstep and the views especially from the Orchid suite are stunning. The real strength of the Grand, in my opinion, is the master of ceremonies he looks like he might have been a butler in a previous life! He took care of everything on the day - anything you expected was taken care of with a lot of attention to detail. The day was very relaxed and ran to our schedule rather than the hotel''s. The food was excellent too. Based on our experiences I''d highly recommend the Grand.

An excellent wedding venue with a very regal atmosphere!
Venue Service

By Gail D, on 22 Jan 2004

I got married at the Grand Hotel in August last year and it was a fantastic venue. The wedding coordinator, Angela, was brilliant and was on hand all day to oversee everything. The wedding room was well set-out, the food was gorgeous and the reception was even better! The locatin is breathtaking, with the sea practically on the doorstep, and it proved very popular with our guests who do not live near the coast. It does lack roaming gardens but Tynemouth Priory, just 2 minutes up the road, is lovely to have some intimate photos taken. All in all I can't recommend The Grand Hotel enough.
