My husband and I got married on the 20th May 2017, and the day was perfect. We didn't have to worry about a single thing, everything was taken care of by the wedding co-ordinators and hotel staff. We liased a lot with Gabriela in the months running up to our wedding, and all our issues (not that

there were many) were dealt with straight away. The day itself ran as smoothly as we could've hoped, everything was taken care of for us, right down to having all our gifts and cards taken up to our room so we didn't have to worry forgetting anything at the end of the evening. Throughout the day, reception would ring me to tell me photographer, flowers ect had arrived and sent everyone up to me, so I didn't have to worry about leaving my room at any point. I spoke to Megan, our on the day co-ordintor quite a bit throughout the day, mainly her just telling me what was going on and keeping me in the loop. I appreciated it. Most of our guests came down from London, and a couple even flew in from Norway, and they had a wonderful time. A few even stayed at the hotel and said how incredible everything was. I couldn't reccomend having your wedding at the Grand hotel enough. Everything was perfect.

We chose to have our wedding at the Grand after visiting a wedding showcase where Gabriela showed us around and we fell in love with it. From that day to after our wedding the communication from the Grand has been outstanding.

One of the things that appealed to us straight away was that they only

host one wedding at a time meaning that a) I wouldn't bump into another bride and b) we would have 100% of their focus. We found a wedding package that was ideal for us and made it easy to plan our special day. The staff were one of the things that stood out for us as being exceptional each time we visited and our wedding guests were full of praise for their friendly yet professional and efficient approach. In particular Les who helped ensure our day ran smoothly and of course Gabriela who helped us plan the wedding from day 1. Gabriela filled us with confidence in both her and the Grand every time that we met, spoke to or emailed her and is a real asset to the hotel. She helped us plan our day and nothing was too much trouble. Her excellent organisation and kind, friendly approach made the entire process stress-free.

Our wedding day itself went perfectly and the hard work of the staff kept everything running smoothly and made us and our guests feel special in such a luxurious and beautiful location. The food was OUTSTANDING and received so many compliments from our guests. Our guests were particularly impressed to have a hot evening buffet which was delicious.

The suite that we stayed in on or wedding night was incredible and had the most beautiful view of the sea. We visited our room before the evening reception and drank the complimentary water which we noticed had been replaced when we returned to our room after the reception.

With wonderful staff, attention to detail, amazing food and a beautiful building we wholeheartedly recommend the Grand for a stress-free and perfect fairytale wedding day. Such a special place.

We would like to thank the all team at the Grand Hotel for the amazing and perfect wedding we had!

Claire and Matt (wedding coordinators) were fantastic as well as Roger (the Master of Ceremony). The service was outstanding during dinner and in general during the all day.

Thank you so much, we

If you have any doubts about the Grand Hotel don’t have

From the moment we met Lindsay Hawley we had a good feeling about the great attention to detail. We were the handed over to Gabriela who did an absolutely fabulous job of organising everything apart from the flowers and the band. She did

however give us a list of possible suppliers and we could not have been more pleased, the florist Petals Flowers and the band Visage were absolutely brilliant. You could not fault either. We did also order chair covers which was a good idea as it improved the look enormously. We did attend a food and wine tasting session (again well organised) and did change our minds about the food and as I’ll mention later it was amazing. I know people use the word amazing easily but in this case if I use it, and you were there, you would know no other word could describe the whole day. From the day we arrived which was on the Friday the attention to detail was amazing. The head of concierge (David) was particularly helpful as was the rest of his team, in not only parking our car but greatly assisting those who were staying and those guests who came for the day. The reception staff were of course, if I’m allowed to say this, were as ever friendly, helpful and attentive as ever. The room we had was amazing and then to Sunday the day of the wedding. I have to say that we knew the day would be good, as we do know the Grand very well but they truly exceeded all our expectations. The team on the day led by Jason assisted by Alex and Marcin from the Mirabelle were amazing. Nothing but nothing was left to chance, from the music when Kathy entered the marriage venue to the serving of the meal. Here we must give a special mention of the chef (Yogi Sundaram) who produced a truly magnificent meal. Through this review I would like to thank them again for a fabulous day, not of course forgetting the amazing organisation of Gabriela.

I would also like to thank Sarah who I know was not directly involved but did have some input on the day! I nearly forgot the toast master hired by the Grand (Stephen Hall); he also did us proud. The service from everyone at the Grand was faultless and having experienced a truly amazing fabulous day I would say to anyone having any second thoughts about where to book for a wedding don’t have any, book the Grand.

We look forward to returning on our anniversary
