My husband and I have always loved The Grand Hotel so was no contest when choosing our wedding venue. Lyndsay was our wedding coordinator at The Grand Hotel and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. On the week leading up to our wedding she was amazing, she made it so easy to decorate the venue before our actual wedding day and then on our wedding day Lyndsay and the employees there did all the table decorations for us meaning I didn't have to stress on the day.

I can highly recommend the Grand Hotel as a wedding venue. We were lucky with the lovely sunny weather and the setting with the garden overlooking the sea was outstanding – a view hard to beat. Lindsay the general manager at the hotel was exceptional in her planning right from the start of the booking through to the end of the day. Every detail was covered and coordinated leaving very little for us to do – just what we wanted. The food was delicious and her team of staff efficiently served and cleared for 116. I cannot praise the Grand enough. Excellent venue, excellent food, and excellent staff.
