The overall experience was excellent from The Grand Hotel, the day ran so smoothly and everything was where it needed to be throughout the day. Yasmina, our planner, made sure our day was how we wanted it and was prompt with any questions we had. Everyone who came said what a wonderful setting the

Billie-Jo and Lottie are incredible assets to your team. They provided outstanding service from start to finish and were always open to helping us with any requests for our special day.

During the pandemic, Billie-Jo was a consistent source of support. This helped make a stressful situation

manageable. Billie-Jo went above and beyond for us at that time. When Lottie took over, the transition was seamless and, between them, ensuring that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more. We are very grateful to them both.
The ops team on the day were outstanding. Winnie and her team delivered amazing service with a smile.
The entire concierge team were fantastic and so helpful, too, by helping our guests when they needed it.
Since our wedding, many of our guests have commented on how fantastic the food was, particularly the vegan option. We want to thank the chef and his team.

This is just a note to say thank you so much for everything. We had the most perfect wedding day. We could not have wished for anything more. In spite of the rain and Covid everything went so smoothly and seamlessly and I know all guests thoroughly enjoyed the day, from start to finish.

We know

how much went into the preparation and last minute changes and are so grateful to you and Billie -Jo. Yasmina you are a real credit to the Grand and they are privileged to have you.

The guests were very impressed by the standard of the food, the choice of wine and champagne and quality and speed of the service throughout the day. We really did feel like royalty.

George did mention you in the speech but I’m not sure it would have got back to you from the staff so we thought it was worth letting you know.

Tim the Toastie was brilliant! He really made the day. He ensured we were looked after throughout and was both charismatic and charming. Please pass on our thanks to him.

Please pass on special thanks to the chef and all the kitchen staff and the door staff who went above and beyond throughout the weekend.

Every single aspect of the day exceeded our expectations. We felt like royalty for the entire stay. Our guests

were all delighted with the food and service.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Grand and their affiliated services to anyone looking for a venue for a special occasion. I should add that we found the costs quite reasonable in comparison to other venues as well, particularly when you consider the high standard of service.
